    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    learning experience, work well with school schedules.

    Cons

    7am-5pm work days, not 8/9-5. Micro-managin at it's finest. bottom of the barrel pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales and operations need to be better connected. They need to take better care of the employees, they have a lot of smart, hard working employees that don't get any acknowledgment and end up leaving.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability, little to no outsourcing of jobs; forward thinking; technology

    Cons

    Salaried personnel work 50+ hours a week; very political enviroment, especially within IT (Applications) management; some higher levels of management very egotistical and condescending which prevents open lines of communication; difficult to concentrate, high stress in some groups (Operations, Brokerage) due to open floor plan, lack of privacy within new workstation design; employee morale extremely poor in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Question employees on how they feel about their management; reduce work hours for personnel so they can have more of a work/life balance; show more appreciation to driving force (identify ways to recognize drivers other than miles alone); ensure management treats employees with respect; reduce need for CYA practices.
