    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Time off is wonderful and its a company that you are able to move up in at a quick pace. They are a large company but address you on a personal level. The pay is great also.

    Cons

    This company does have some issues. They mainly involve the driving portion of the company. In that I mean that sometimes it is hard to get back for your time off but they work hard to get you back in time.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Without a doubt the worst OTR company in the united states that I have worked for.

    Cons

    Trying to get home , pay and generally being treated like crap, trying ti get sleep while dispatchers send numerous messages over a QUALCOMM to tell you irrelevant info.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy the fruits of your elitist business plan while your reputation continues to one of the industry's worst. Just remember there are a finite number of truck drivers on this planet and the vast majority already know from former employees like me how sorry JB hunt is

    Pros

    equipment is good management is ok...Benifits are good

    Cons

    I am a local driver on the Home Depot account..being paid by the mile to run local is total B.S. if u think dispatch playing favorites on loads affects you're paycheck when u run O.T.R. think what it does when u have alot of 300-500 mile loads and alot of 30-50 mile loads..some drivers work 50 hrs a week and make $1100..and some drivers work 60 hrs and make $900 total B.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay by the hr

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

    Pros

    Will hire veterans with no driving experience. Similar to most other major trucking companies otherwise. I enjoyed working for them up until I didn't.

    Cons

    I had a truck driving job. Weeks away from home, and plenty of downtime in areas where there's nothing to do. I read a lot of books.
