    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

    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.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They offer Plenty of hours, secured working area

    Cons

    Once you start picking up extra hours they expect you to always over work yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your employees and how hard they do work for you. Do not try and burn them out.

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

    Pros

    You learn a ton about transportation and employee management. You learn to be very detailed with your work and a lot of promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Once you start they add on to the work load until you spend very little time at home and don't have much of a life. The company also has a lot of policies that put you in compromising situations. They also make you "review" every little thing with drivers and the whole process is very time consuming. People don't stay at this company very long, A LOT of young people just getting their start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that people have home lives and personal time is much needed. Waiting a full year to get a week off is a long time when your working 60+ hours a week.
