    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    If you live in NW Arkansas, they will likely hire you eventually due to constant turnover in basic positions.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no core values, no sustainable culture, high turnover of talented leaders and meritless promotion of less talented 'hanging on' leaders. Brokerage operation is a true sweat-shop with commission driven cold-calling, just look around at the age group...they draw desperate college grads in only to grind-them-up in 6 months or so. No cafeteria, the gym is a joke, being an executive is a social status achievement and contributes to the absolute void of direction by the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time and energy building the values of the organization and less time feeding-off the company earnings. Address real leadership gaps, create and empower a true performance management process.

    Work with employees to meet goals and expand knowledge

    Regional Operations Manager

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Allows flexibility in your schedule to work from home. It is very fast pace environment, gives you an opportunity to manage your own business, make executive decisions, and lead/direct a team of managers. It is a great stepping stone to grow as a mid-level manager and gain different experiences you really can't get from normal day to day operations. This position definitely trains you on how to be a good multi-tasker.

    Cons

    Always on call 24/7, and working 50-60 hours a week. Work-Life balance is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-Life balance needs to improve for all managers. Need to come up with a solution where employees can go home and not have to answer business phone calls on the weekends or after hours.
