Truck Driver/Installer (Former Employee), Chantilly, VA – January 9, 2014
Typical day includes loading trucks with heavy duty stoves, microwaves, dish washers and/dryers and prepare them for installation. I, not only increased my driving skills, but I learned how to install. My co-workers were very helpful and together we carried items anywhere from 200 to 500 Ibs. Sometimes, I would deal with difficult customers which could – more... be hard at times. Installing items is what I enjoyed most about the job. – less
STAY AWAY!!! Do not make a Mistake by getting employed here (yard jocky)
Yard Jockey (Former Employee), Bethlehem Pa – September 18, 2014
By far the worst company I have worked for. You have no life, constantly changing your schedule like every week. They work you to death with little money, cut you hours and have you work more! They never give you raises when you completed your 6- yr employment. I was a yard jockey but the worst job I ever had.. Even truck drivers were quitting more – more... because you alwAys wait for your load even when it's ready.. – less
truck driver (Current Employee), Winterhaven Fl. – September 15, 2014
Cons: long hours very low pay
Intermodal out of Winter Haven Fl. Been there 2 months recruiter told me I can make $850.00 to $1000.00 a week. That's a lie $450.00 for a 70 hour week Equals $6.42 an hour. I can flip burgers for more money. This company made 90 million dollars last year I know why us drivers don't get paid enough. I hour at rail 2 hours at receivers another hour at – more... rail and 2 more hours at a receiver adds up to 6 hours of no pay with 8 hours of driving. 14 hour shifts and make $6.42 an hour. When my drug test comes back I am gone. NO MONEY HERE – less
Transportation Representative (Former Employee), West Orange – September 8, 2014
Cons: healthcare is expensive
It is a normal day at work definitely would work again for JB Hunt. The branch office @ West Orange is very well run & administrated. The Branch Director is by far 1 of the best bosses I have ever worked for.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Georgia – September 4, 2014
Pros: free lunch at orientation
Cons: none i wouldbt recommend this company to anyone
If you're in an accident and get hurt they will not pay for compensation they will come up with excuses not to & leave you to find your own medical care to get back to work the manger sucks takes them about 3 hrs to write you back they don't answer the phones either STAY FAR AWAY I WARN YOU Low pay last check was 250 bucks worst mistake of my life
CDL driver (Current Employee), Houston, TX – August 26, 2014
Pros: excellent opportunity for those foolish individuals who like making $600 per week for 70 hrs
Cons: too many to list. avoid, or don't, but i did warn you.
Do you like being treated like a child? Do you like being lied to? Do you like working long hours with poor compensation? Do you like an overbearing safety department that views you as a liar? Do you like ignorant coworkers? Do you like slip seating?
I'll stop here.
JB Hunt is paradise for those seeking the above.
Don't think DCS or Intermodal or – more... whatever other division you choose will be better. They are all the same. They all suck.
C&S Local Driver (Former Employee), York, PA – August 24, 2014
Pros: home daily/employees
JB Hunt will ruin your DAC, fire you and fight to make sure you do not collect unemployment whenever they feel like it! I worked for them for four months. The pay was a joke, nothing like they promised, you might get lucky to see 400-500 a week if you kill yourself. No organization, the favorite drivers get the best runs. Save yourself the trouble and – more... work for a company that values their employees.
If you don't perform the Smith system, you will be terminated. They have people following you around to make sure your not talking on your cell phone, because if your caught, you will be terminated. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving, and finding another one. – less
Yard Jockey (Former Employee), Brattleboro, VT – August 20, 2014
Pros: home time...
Cons: equipment, pay, hours, management, did i miss anything...
I worked for them in Brattleboro vt. As a yard jockey, the work to pay balance is way out of whack. 16. Per hour is not a lot of money when they keep you near the 45hr per week. The things they have you do.( fueling trailers, door swaps, pretripping equipment, ect... Just not worth it. Jb hunt break down is a joke when you need service on the road. – more... Just overall a bad experience here. Look elsewhere if at all possible. I would consider this short term employment at best. – less
trailing assistant (Current Employee), Lowell, Arkansas – August 19, 2014
Pros: customer service with the drivers and vendors
Cons: need more growth and opportunities to move around. educate employees
My current position are really about family first and that is something I really love about the company and they really support the military. The hardest part of the job would be under staff but that is with any company but everyone overcome and adapt to the situation. Management cares about the employess. I learn something new about our equipment every – more... day which I love and that is something that is very important for me. Growth with a company and being able to be a team player for a company and help it grow and others. My typical of day is to take care of my vendors invoices , make sure my drivers equipment are fixed in a timely manner and being a team player within my department when they need me to on top of my work load. – less
