    Pros

    Great first step into the door to observe operations and get your feet wet in the industry. Fast paced environment

    Cons

    Huge work load. Work load large enough for two employees, tons of responsibility and long hours. Must enjoy working with drivers to be happy

    Advice to Management

    Restructure responsibility set. Feels rather narrow in terms of overall insight to company

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company keeps growing, so lots of work to be had.

    Cons

    Insulting compensation levels for those lower down the corporate ladder, particularly considering the demands and workload. Before I realized what a slave-driving sham this company is, I recommended a couple very qualified people I knew to apply for openings and they related very bad experiences getting treated like garbage by recruiting and HR and I felt bad for ever recommending the company to outside talent. It was really puzzling since the people had outstanding track-records in business, but the fact is that recruiting and HR people and processes become more of a disaster with each passing year and the level of incompetence is stunning.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for lower level positions. Revamp your recruiting and HR processes and stop plugging the absurdly incompetent into those positions.
