Enjoyable place to work
PDA Office Technician (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AR25 April 2018
Atmosphere is laid back and fun. You get to dress busness casual with jeans. Tattoos that show are ok as long as respectful as well as gauge piercing. Four major holidays are paid after 30 days. They have food catered in for a small price. A nice gym and showers if you want to work out on your lunch break.

Horrible job
Fleet Manager (Former Employee) –  Arkansas24 April 2018
I received this job directly out of college and of course pounced on the opportunity to get into the work force any way I could. Two LONG years later I felt like I had aged 20. Unfriendly environment and no room for advancement.

Apply only if you are related to someone there.
Driver Manager (Former Employee) –  Lowell, AR23 April 2018

Pros
Lots of turnover
Cons
You have to work there.

Good place to work during summer time
Truck Driver Class A Local (Current Employee) –  South Gate, CA18 April 2018
During summer time there is lots of work, so you have the potential to make a lot of money during this time. I work night time to evade traffic and make more money. This job is activity based pay, so when you are stuck in traffic or dispatch is slow you lose money. You are paid by the mile and load. 27 dollars and something cents for mon-fri shift per load drop and hook. 31 drop and hook for weekend drivers. Live load unload is 41 for weekday and 45 for weekend I believe. 37 cents for weekday and 41 cents for weekend drivers. When there is little work you are given a ton of mt moves which only pay 10 dollars per move. If you are looking for local experience this is a good place to start, but not somewhere you want to be for retirement as income is unstable, but during summer you can make lots of money if you work nights and weekends. That being said you also need to learn the rail and gain experience because if you don't know what to do you will waste hours of work which will be unpaid. You are paid by activity not hourly, so you need to learn to be efficient and learn the los angeles, commerce, and san bernardino rails where you will be picking up containers for deliveries or dropping them there from customer pick ups. Another con is you will never get a raise. The pay is what it is. You can have 20 + years of experience or as little as 3 months and both will be paid the same. It is up to how much you do that will determine you pay check or how much you can do. Sometimes you will want to come in to work hard but dispatch or something happening at a customer delaying you can  more... ruin your day and you will not make much that day.  less

DRIVER (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CA18 April 2018
This is not an hourly job. Sometimes you may have to work long days and it is not worth it. If it were an hourly job, I would recommend working for this company.

Turnover is high,Guess why?
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  West Orange, NJ12 April 2018
Lots of new starters from different sectors. If you worked in a market or you were a butcher in the past do not worry Jbhunt is the right place for you. You can work as Logistics Coordinator or Customer Service Representative.

Hard to understand managers language.

Waste of time if you have experience.

driver
Professional Driver (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA10 April 2018
drivers are not treated fairly, we seldom get what promised to us, for example, we worked per miles, we didn't have a guarantee salary, in many occasion you don't have enough money to pay bills.
