Former Employee - Account Manager in Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)

I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (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.

    Pros

    Lots of work
    at Least its a job

    Cons

    Where do I start? Work and Life balance is terrible. They avoid paying for things like breakdowns. Often miss (avoid?) paying for extras like drop and hooks, unloading times. Too much power given to store associates in paperwork that effects pay. Pay is wrong all the time, yet that problem is never fixed, it just keeps happenning. Avoidance is the standard way to take on problems. If you are a problem child, or they even think you are, you are terminated. They have a really poor culture that just keeps on getting passed through as people play the game and move up by being quiet, Health and safety concerns at this location. No sick days, threaten you with firing. Bad insurance program.
    They are terrified of unionization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop plugging in newbies in both management and driving force. The avoidance factor is unreal there. Fix problems, but more importantly start listening to your employees, otherwise you'll stay a last resort. You should really think about fixing these issues, because the driving universe has the goods on you.

    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.
