I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great experience working with a vast array of different industries, good health insurance and benefits. Overall good training models, military friendly.

Cons

Corp management is out of touch with region employees, great managers quit or are fired. Region OM's are less experienced than the people they manage. Good ol boy system is fully in place. Ideas are not welcomed, micro manage is the standard. Account managers are told to manage reports not their business. Not enough compensation for the hours of work you put in. Loves to hire military, however the leadership brought to the table by veterans is fostered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote based on experience, not whom you like better. Gain control of region VP's, and ensure they are leading by example. Don't be afraid to get rid of bad employees so that you retain the good ones.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment, salary is competitive, access to industry leading tools.

    Cons

    Employee manager lacks ability to be a leader, allows other junior employees to control and manipulate company rules and policy's. Good ole' boy network is obvious to the point that senior managers have given up. Moral is very low among managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up and take charge. The same mistakes are repeated day after day. The same employee's continue with same daily company violations. You have the policies in place to change these things, time to take charge and do your job as SR Manager. Manage your fleet managers.

    Pros

    It's a job for sure, but maybe not a career. High driver turn over and bad equipment

    Cons

    Long Hours, under-paid per industry average, high priced benefits package.
