Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARJuly 21, 2016
I learned a lot working here, I believe they could do better at training and explaining company policies by the book instead how workers interpret them. I learned so much about organization, computer skills, and time management.
Pros
Paid time off, 401k and great health insurance
Cons
you are easily replaceable

National Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARJuly 18, 2016
JB Hunt is an industry leader in supply chain logistics that offers its clients a vast array Work/life balance is an issue with most sales people having to constantly travel or take care of service issues at night and on weekends. Pressure to bring in business is heavy but if you are successful you will be compensated.

Overall Hunt has a strong vision for the future. There will be growth opportunities for the right person especially women.

Installation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 13, 2016
Excellent place to work and great benefits, along with good working hours. I enjoyed meeting their customers and working with the contractors on builder jobs. JB Hunt was the "final mile" of their appliance delivery. We ensured the customer's new appliances and other products were installed in a timely manner and made sure they worked properly.

Pick up and deliver loads all around California
Driver (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJuly 12, 2016
A typical day at JB Hunt was to pick up and sometimes help unload deliveries. Its hard to make it on time to every pick up or delivery because of traffic.

Don't Waste Your Time
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Chantilly, VAJuly 9, 2016
Worst company I have ever worked for hands down............ Place is run by a drunk and a bunch of immature college graduates who graduated with below average grades.
Pros
none..... there really are no pros to this sorry excuse of a job
Cons
So many to list but for starters the comapny is racist period, low wages, paid by what you install and the person who does the routes determines if you will make money.

J B Hunt
OTR Driver (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARJuly 7, 2016
Delivering materials from one place to another. Management needs to treat drivers with respect when firing them not treating them like criminals. Not allowing the driver to pack up their own truck having to walk the driver to the truck to take medication was the hardest parts of the job.

If you're willing to relocate, opportunities are endless. JB Hunt is all about the driver, so don't get discouraged when your concerns/priorities are put to the side.
Pros
Great people to work with in the office. Excellent management
Cons
poor work/life balance, too much focus on driver and not on managers.

JB Hunt
Operation Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Edgerton, KSJuly 2, 2016
Fast growing trucking company with good pay and good benefits. However, 12 hour work days are the norm in a stressful office setting where it's hard to get away for lunch. The result is high turnover and high burnout.
Pros
Good pay for the industry. Fun group of co-workers.
Cons
Long work days with high stress. Being able to get away for lunch breaks is dificult.

To Each Their Own
Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 28, 2016
Take it from me, this is a Driver Mill if I've ever seen one. Sink or swim is the method of Driver placement with most JB Hunt accounts. Try it out, a the very least you may get some road time in for experience.

Alot of changes need to occur in Management there, all over the Company. I have heard from several departments.
Desk Officer for JB Hunt Corporate Security (Current Employee) –  Lowell, ARJune 27, 2016
A large Company that is hard to make an advancement in. This Company seems to strive more for family within family type of business. You will have a better chance of growing there if you have family in he company already. A lot of areas of Management here do not process good leadership or Management skills.
Pros
12 hour shifts, 1 week overtime week, No hassel from Manager, 1 hour lunches if desired and clock out, Or we can work lunch hour and get paid for it.
Cons
48 in advance to call in sick, do not get paid well for what we do, Our Manager has us do his work, The Manager does not stay up on taking care of what his people need.

Unsafe Working Environment
Company Driver (Former Employee) –  Brattleboro, VT 05301June 23, 2016
They will give you unsafe equipment (Trucks) to go out with and perform your duties. As well as unsafe trailers. Not always but enough so it became an issue. Would send you down into inner city Boston and other areas with a 51 ft trailer. Making your potential for an accident risk that much greater.

Only care about deliveries and not the drivers. Drivers are nothing but product pushers to JB HUNT.
Pros
In Depth Training Programs, SMITH SYSTEM, Helpful Drivers
Cons
Unsafe Working Conditions, Unsafe Equipment, Dangerous Routes, Work sometimes unavailble

Really? Is this where you want to go or do you just need a job?
Management, former employee (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARJune 20, 2016
The old guard has largely left. They got the ball rolling for the new generation to "improve". The new guard apparently feels the need to make their mark. The current result? It has gone from a good ol boy network to a good ol girl network.

Driver support is now largely children just putting their fresh degree to work. Children managing working adults is not ideal. They are largely being directed by computer programs to make their decisions. When a decision is required outside the computer dynamic, the children haven't a clue what to do. It frustrates the working driver.

The office has largely become a filthy Petri dish. It is becoming a party environment...likely because it attracts children fresh from college. Are there still dedicated persons trying to get the monumental job done? Absolutely! Sadly, they are now in the great minority.

Here are a few tips to promote from within. Be a baptist. Be a woman or a minority. Whether you read the current trendy books or whether you do not, put them on your desk so they are seen. Buy into all the latest office speak now trending. Talk the talk, even if you don't walk the walk.

Look, it's a good company. They are just trying to find themselves. Unfortunately, it is truly shaped like a pyramid. The small group of folks at the top ultimately seem interested in protecting their often unearned benefits of power.

There has long been a saying among the ranks: Jbh trains a lot of people to succeed elsewhere.
Pros
Very nice coworkers
Cons
Arrogant, narcissistic executives

Dedicated accounts driver (Current Employee) –  Phenix City, ALJune 19, 2016
Dedicated account. Good money. Everything JB Hunt said they would do they have. That's saying alot in the trucking world. Account managers seem to be pretty good. Equipment is plan but good. Governed at 62mph but u get use to. Lots of safety equipment that does help but can be a pest at times in traffic. Nice uniforms provided. Dedicated account I'm on is very demanding, but the pay is adjusted to match. Work mon, tues., off wed. work thurs. fri. Off weekends. U will burn your 14hr clock up the days u work. More than a driving job. U get to build relationships with your customers. That is a big plus. Physically demanding in short periods that is good. Not for everyone! District manager is not that great but it could be a personality conflict. Orientation in Atlanta was great! The gals up there put u through the paces and are knowledgeable, they were and are drivers. Meals were not that great. Hotel was good. Pay has been spot on except for one time and my manager took care of it asap. The people net sucks! Not as good as other units. U learn to deal with it. Safety is good. There all about safety but listen also. This is a thinking man's job, u have to problem solve. If u want to hold a steering wheel and hang out in truck stops waiting on a load then this is not for u
. We get paid very well for a reason!
Pros
Money, weekends off, physically demanding
Cons
Long hrs. Governed at 62mph

Transporting Freight to 48 states. logistics, safety, HOS, Governmental Requirements, Cargo Food Safety,Logistics Operations, Warehouse Logistics Equipment, Information Technology, Management, Specialized Logistic. Management opens the opportunities for drivers to gain knowledge though learning tools. Opportunities are open it is up to the driver to indulge in the opportunity.Coworkers are awesome and happy. Happy driver is a awesome driver. Night and bad weather driving is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of this job is learning.

everything
