I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Steady paycheck and you will never get laidoff new trucks and trailers easy work

Cons

Pay sucks they could pay alot more they are making alot of money every quarter but won't give drivers or fleet managers any money. People who are in charge really don't now anything about hauling freight never been behind the wheel but yet thats who trains.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shape up or we will have the union there so fast your head will spin. Can you say local 705

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    Compensation for things other companies don't or won't pay, flexible scheduling as needed, equipment is well maintained, managers very easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Medical insurance is not the best, co pays are expensive, out sick or injured more than three days you must take a new DOT physical and have personal physician sign a ton of paperwork which is a hassle, point system used against you when you must be out of work unless fleet mgr is notified 24 hrs in advance, if sick he must know beforehand, who plans to be sick?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the aforementioned point system, it'sa major detractor to those who want to stay with the company, improve the mileage pay scale to keep up with the cost of living, .34 a mile to start is a slap in the face to someone with over 20 years driving experience.
