    Get into the trenches, keep safety number one priority and reward the employees who show results.

    Pros

    You can work anywhere in the country. They have locations and driving jobs that can satisfy almost anyone.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted up from a driver to an office position even though they talk about doing this. Very business driven and not driver driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a cohesive team with your management and drivers. This will lower turnover and strengthen customer company relationships.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not much left anymore, but there's still hope.

    Cons

    benefits are high, better off with obamacare, no room for advancement unless you can pucker up & kiss every pompous butt there. It really went down hill once the big man passed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not going to say, wouldn't make any difference, they wouldn't listen anyway.

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

    Pros

    The pay was great. There are very few jobs you can get fresh out of college that will pay this well. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement. They give you a lot of power to make decisions.

    Cons

    There is no work/life balance. You are expected to work both Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas. Every holiday works this way. You will work very long hours. After you are home since you have a company laptop and cell phone you are still required to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff more.
