    From my understanding the old jb hunt was very good at taking care of the driver.The current is all about money.That's why they have a revolving door.

    Good experience in Logistics however compensation and career path do not match up with my interests

    Current Employee - Carrier Sales Coordinator in Lowell, AR (US)

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is very friendly and inviting. Fortune 500 gives great exposure to large customers and all aspects of the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Slow to react to internal issues or employee needs. Compensation no better than industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on retaining talent and cutting turnover rate. Young workers get the impression that intelligence and hard work isn't valued like it should be.
