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

    Pros

    You learn a lot about transportation. It's not just schedules and routes but you learn federal regulations, different customer's expectations, and how to manage drivers... which is a challenge in its own right.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of your time. If you're the only one running a fleet then you're on call 24/ 7. A lot is asked of the managers and at times it can feel like you're the lone person on the island and there isn't a company that has your back.

    Advice to Management

    Be there for your employees in the field.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are good to work with. The hours are flexible. If you like wearing a lot of hats this is a great place. You will do most of the analysis on a project then design and construction.

    Cons

    Hard work isn't recognized. You have to fight to get a good salary and promoted. Also the whole IT department is not funded enough. People are assigned unrealistic timelines. It's almost like IT management is afraid to be honest with the business about resources and time.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with goals forced on people. If you assign a 1 year task that realistically requires 10 people, then don't reprimand the 5 people you assigned to it when they are behind. Perhaps increase the IT budget or lengthen the timelines.

    Advice to Management

    Give your people bigger desks. There should not be a need for a person to have to choose whether they want to put their feet under the desk, or their trash can.
