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

    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.

    Pros

    Pay, Rate of raises, benefits, great eating & exercise facilities on site.

    Cons

    High Stress, High Competition. Everyone is at each others throats to move up and the pace is so quick that you have to be very careful not to drown. If it isn't something your heart is in it will eat you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more PTO. Spread team work evenly. Recognize success and reward.

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

    Pros

    Equipment is replaced every 3 years. Facilities are newer. Most management actually cares about their employees, all the way up to the regional director. They're very focused on keeping their employees safe. There's also a welcome distance kept between drivers and mechanics. There's a 4 day work week. Almost everyone in maintenance management started out working as a mechanic or a driver then moved up and you can too. They have discount programs with multiple nationwide company's like verizon, jeep, gm

    Cons

    The pay is middle of the road and the benefits are a joke. Your required holidays come out of you're PTO and if you run out before a holiday expect a short paycheck. They are very strict when it comes to their standard repair times and they try to cut them down as often as they can. There's no overtime allowed. They often run out of soap and towels and won't order more until the month is out and anyone who has ever finished a dirty job can attest to the importance of being able to get clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more manufacturer based training. PTO should not go towards national holidays. And health benefits needs a major overhaul

    Pros

    Great benefits, Awesome support system, Informative management crew.

    Cons

    Can not physically unload anymore. Trailers are just too hot to work in. Docks rarely have fans on them and those that do rarely ever use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the exit interview.
