    Uneven bonus pay

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    JB Hunt offered me a job right out of college. absolutely amazing oppurtunities exist if you want them. My managers continue to challenge me with new chances every day.

    Cons

    Very few cons of working here but one negative would be the limited vacation time the first year working here. As I recall it was only 2.5 days

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing in young talent, JB Hunt is becoming a much more attractive company to work for right out of college.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to gain experience in transportation management
    Very high potential for personal career growth
    Limited micromanagement - mostly free to make independent decisions.
    Recent improvements in benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on the day, the hours can be very long.
    Managing drivers with difficult personalities or poor work ethic (not all, but some).
    Limited Manager training/Onboarding - expected to run the operation (potentially by yourself) with very little training.

    Advice to Management

    To upper/regional management - push harder on safety, delegate more responsibilities to supervisors. Overall, upper management is very good and there is a sense of strong leadership and involvement.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits and the proprietary software are actually pretty good.

    Cons

    Usual, over worked and under paid. Upper management is completely disconnected from what is actually going on.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your numbers not your account. Upper management doesn't care about anything but what it looks like on paper. Make sure that your answer is always yes. Never turn down a possion move even if you don't want it. Upper management looks at you as though you are not a company man/woman.
