good place to work ,bad managers
Truck Driver/Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL19 November 2017
nice place to work ,if you can put up with a lot of horse play from managers that think they are still kids., And the driver managers have favorites ,who get all the best paying trips, also some of the women drivers get less miles also if you are not white they will always send you to the east coast And send all the white to the sunny states
Pros
trophys
Cons
breaks are good

Lacks diversity at the higher levels of leadership
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Houston, TX19 November 2017
If your the right skin complexion, you will be promoted regardless of whether or not you have a degree. White men with no degree areally being paid moreally than black men with a degree although the experience is the same.
Pros
Relocation opportunites
Cons
Lacks diversity in leadership roles. Theres just enough diversity to meet the quota.

Great place to work!
Class A CDL Driver (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MN14 November 2017

Pros
Paid time off

Solid company with limited advancement and pay
Chassis Manager (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AR14 November 2017
Solid management and a place that values loyalty. A little low on the salary side across the board and promotions can be very slow as experience is often the deciding factor.

Typical Freight movers
Semi-Truck​ ​drive​r (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IA13 November 2017
Nothing special about this company to set it apart from any other freight of all kind movers. If you have a year of CDL experience, you'd expect to make about $40,000/year with this company as most others.

Not at all what I expected, In a positive light.
TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Taunton, MA9 November 2017
I have always heard a lot of negative comments about J.B. Hunt and I was fully prepared to believe them. I was pleasantly surprised to find that J.B. Hunt was not a bad company to work for. I worked 2nd shift so after 7pm traffic died down quite a bit. The management was pretty good and the people at the office I interacted with knew their jobs. The equipment worked most of the time and overall it was not bad.
Pros
Learning the routes and overall good equipment
Cons
Slipseating and the hours.

Hazmat Compliance Manager (Former Employee) –  Lowell, AR6 November 2017
High responsibility, but few resources to accomplish goals. Pay is well below industry standards. Department management is solid, but company leadership has an unfortunate habit of listening to unqualified personnel who tell them what they want to hear as opposed to what they need to hear.
Pros
Hours, coworkers
Cons
Low compensation, inadequate resources, leadership's tendency to disregard inconvenient information
