    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lowell, AR (US)

    ProsThe company leadership has shown a consistent ability to set and meet short and long term goals, which has fueled consistent sustainable growth of the company. Because of their sound long-term financial management, JB Hunt is uniquely positioned to take advantage all industry conditions, including downturns.

    The executive team is genuinely interested in the employees as individuals.

    ConsThe company has grown to the point where it is experiencing siloing. This presents a challenge when trying to respond rapidly to changing conditions.

    Great place to learn and grow

    Regional Logistics Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsTeamwork, dynamic work environment, given responsibility quickly, great exposure to a large business and ability to quickly become ingrained and attuned to large companies supply chain needs and transportation.
    Constantly challenged to grow as an individual and team.

    ConsWork-life balance can be a challenge - its a personal problem for me that I tend to have a hard time switching off. Easy to let work become your life as a result.
    On that same vein, time off could be encouraged and given more time sooner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure you avoid being penny wise and dollar foolish by allowing good people to leave because they feel their prospects are limited or that they can earn more elsewhere and work less hours. Encourage individual growth and mentoring from upper management.
    Continue to emphasize to all business units how vital all the other business units are. Currently attitudes of more established units tend to be that they are more important or necessary than newer units. Great exposure and/or cross training should help limit this.
