Fast Pace
Carrier Sales Coordinator (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Hour lunch breaks
Cons: long hours, on call requirements
A typical day is spent negotiation rates and establishing new customers. The mornings are spent covering freight and checking on shipments delivering and picking up that day. The afternoons are spent soliciting current and new customers.

Fast paced general labor
Dock worker (Former Employee), Santa Fe Springs, Ca.July 28, 2015
Pros: Great work environment
Cons: Waking up at 2am Monday through Friday
A typical day at J.B. Hunt for me was preparing drivers/ installers product load and route paper work. After that task was done, i would make my way to the docks where i would scan incoming and out going products and label them accordingly. What i learned from this job was how a warehouse operates from dock work, shipping and receiving, bill of ladings, labeling, and route paper work. I was also assistant to the dock manger. The co-workers i had were amazing. We were a great team that were all in sync to accomplish tasks that were asked of us. The hardest part of the job was waking up at 2am Monday through Friday and the most enjoyable part of the job was pay day.

Typical Day HECTIC at all times, Hardest part Trying to please everyone
Consumer Acct Rep in Marketing (Current Employee), Lowell ARJuly 10, 2015
Pros: Pretty good benefits, quarterly and yearly bonuses if the company does well
Cons: It doesn't matter if it is 10 feet of snow you are expected to be there regardless
Seems to be an issue at times getting the answers we need to pass on to our customer, seems like some departments try to work against you instead of helping you.
Benefits are good, the quarterly and yearly bonuses if we do good as a company are very helpful,

not what i expected
Manager in training (Current Employee), York, PAJune 30, 2015
Pros: Pay
Cons: No lunch, No overtime, Work culture, Work setting.
I thought the job would be different. Going into it I was expecting a better company culture and better work/life balance. But the reality of the job was much different from what I was told it would be. The job pays well for an entry level position. Is it an interesting job? Absolutely not. Very redundant work and you don't learn new things day to day. For those of us who yearn to learn, skip this company.

They didn't pay my medical while in the Hospital
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Michigan pJune 22, 2015
Cons: Very bad dispatcher
Very bad Company, I was sick , admitted into Hospital for 3 days, was fired for not being able to do my job when I was in the Hospital and didn't pay for my medical bills. Dispatcher will send you to pickup a empty trailer that is not at the location. i remember this Truck Driver told me not to wok for JB Hunt but I had to see for myself, Big Mistake. They told me I would be home on weekends but my weekends were Wednesday and Thursday

A lot of room for improvement
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Lowell, ARJune 16, 2015
Everything falls on the Dispatcher. Either you have a good one that works for you. or you have a bad one that works against you. In my case it was a bad one. but that's not to say that everyone else would have the same experience.

very productive
Transport specialist/ Unloader (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJune 14, 2015
Pros: great compensation for services rendered
Cons: lack of knowledge about drivers skill set and who ultimately makes the safety call
very productive great logistics and load planning however management and dispatch is a very tight nit group and when it comes to being a driver they are quick to railroad you and push blame onto driver and have no regard for driver safety during adverse driving conditions remember any good driver knows when it's time to get off the road and a drivers safety is every ones safety

Like the job very poor management
Lead Technician (Former Employee), Wayne, MIJune 12, 2015
Pros: the job itself
Cons: management and the night shift hours
i would come in early to see what needed tone done and prioritize and set up my shift.
I learned a lot about management, time management skills
The service manager had never worked as a tractor mechanic do couldn't help out at all. Favoritism was away of life with him. If you weren't in his click you weren't any good.
Coworkers were ok on my shift
Hardest part of job was dealing with the favoritism for management and the shift which is why I left.
Most enjoyable part was the challenge I really enjoyed the job
