    Pros

    Company well known & provides access to lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Difficult pricing model which makes it difficult to gain sizable awards of new business.

    Advice to Management

    Too much administrative work required. Need to focus on being more efficient in all aspects of the business. Improve customer service.

    Pros

    Good company, with talented leadership. Leader within the transportation industry especially the Intermodal segment. Company will continue to be a top performer due to unique relationship with railroad.

    Cons

    Not much mobility, modest to low pay. Easy to get comfortable and stay too long in one job. Time off is decent however you don't get 4 weeks until after 15 years. Training is limited and moving within the company can be difficult depending on your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing pay and time off or work from home alternatives that give employees more flexibility in todays work environment. The biggest complaint employees have is lack of transparency, low pay, and poor communication between groups. Helping employees find their career path and providing opportunities to train to meet those goals is equally important.

  3. Definitely better than most trucking companies

    Pros

    The pay is good even when it's slow. Easy to make $1000/week for a 5 day work week. You keep an activity sheet and you calculate your pay at the end of everyday. it averages $220/day if you're willing to put in 12 hours a day. Management is good. Definitely a friendly atmosphere. Really lenient on changing shifts or needing days off. Generally a good company to work for if you're a decent, hard worker.

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive. They assign you a truck but you share it and sometimes they aren't done with their shift when it's time for yours so you have to walk the terminal searching for a loaner for the day (doesn't sound bad but it's annoying when you're in a hurry), you WILL start offun graveyard. Everything JB Hunt does is based off seniority so all the good shifts go to the drivers who have been there for years. I've met people that have been there for 5 years and are still on the graveyard Shift. The seniority thing also gets annoying because if you request a day off a couple weeks in advance but if someone who has been there longer than you requests the same day they won't give it to you. LONG HOURS TO MAKE GOOD MONEY. 14 hours a day is not uncommon to make $ 200.

    Advice to Management

    Petter pay packages so we don't have to burn ourselves out working 12-14 hours a day. Cheaper benefits would be nice too $160/week for a family is outrageous.

    Pros

    The scheduling is up to the individual and how much they want to work.

    Magen starting out at Jb hunt you work on weekends more than anything,

    Advice to Management

    Hire more dispatchers for the intermodal fleet and open up more rotatable shifts for weekends off, ALSO ADD BETTER EQUIPMENT AND RAISE PAY!!!

    Pros

    Jb hunt is a Very dependable company,the pay is good,its always busy,and jb hunt is a leader in the trucking industry.

    Cons

    The heath benifits offered at jb hunt are horribly expensive,around 175 dollars a week for family medical,and because it's a ppo you will get a bill in the mail every time you see the doctor into the deductible is met.

    Advice to Management

    Make heath benifits a benifit and not a large expense for your employees. Saia trucking pays for employees heath care benifits after 10yrs of service,I think that would work great at jb hunt.

    Pros

    its a paycheck though its not consistent on money earned

    Cons

    activity based pay so if there is anything wrong with it you don't get paid and that could be for hours worked , they say safety first but thats just to cover their butt they put you in very very unsafe working conditions and management des not know how to support you on the job because they have never done the job.

    Advice to Management

    come out and do the job learner what your say is so easy ...is not easy
