- 4.0Oct 6, 2021Software Developer InternCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearRogers, AR
- Can reach out to just about anyone (even people on other teams) and get a timely response - Work culture is very enjoyable and engaging for both remote and in-person interns - The company provides you with resources to learn (such as Pluralsite) for free - Very flexible work hours (so long as you can make the daily team meetings) - The main drive behind this internship is the developer themself rather than the company. As an intern you can swap projects with minimal reasoning (can be anything from internal conflict to just wanting to work on a 'fresh' project)
- Daily team meetings can be unnecessary - Summer sprints are every week rather than every two weeks - On-boarding process is fickle and, if you're not careful, can swallow up most of your time at work1J.B. Hunt Transport Response2y

Pay is good on Macy's account. No experience CDL drivers start at 0.63 CPM with a semi local account. Most weeks are 1 night out with occasional 2 nights out on the read. Management takes care of you and your needs. Servant leadership at it's finest.
Long hours and miles when starting out as a brand new trucker. However this will be almost anywhere because being a truck driver generally has a break in period when you're driving 2500 miles + a week.J.B. Hunt Transport Response11mo

I liked the management, very helpful and understanding. Great work environment with great people.
The hours can be long and the pay can be somewhat low but that's the transportation business.

Managers are very welcoming and easy to talk to. VP-level and above managers are very accessible as well.
The wages are not competitive. The company is struggling to retain top talent because people continue to leave for higher paying positions. Turnover is a problem and affects the moral of the entire company. The hours are long and you get the feeling you are looked down upon for taking your full lunch hour.1

They pay their employees on time.
No vacation for the first year of employment. Employees are overworked at a minimum of 10 to 13 hours per day (sometimes longer). Low pay, expensive benefits, and there is no change with their archaic way of doing business. All management is overworked and there is no sign of employing more staff to help with the work load. We have asked time and time again and no change to the number of employees to help assist with the work load. There is also no separation of work/home life. Supervisors are constantly bothered at nights, early mornings, and on the weekends.4

Compensation is good You can write off for all of your expenses from work Job security is great
Long work hours and low management help Hard to take off Lack of visibility between warehouse and transportation
