Driver (Former Employee) – livermore,Ca. – November 13, 2012
start of a day was to inspect my truck and drive.I learned a lot about the rules of the road. mangers lots of times treat you like a number.co-workers are good.hardest part of this was driving in the winter mo's most enjoyable was when you got to where you were going
Hard work, at an average of 14 hour work days. Great place to learn how to use an electronic pallet jack, on the other hand horrible equipment especially for new comers, down right dangerous in my opinion. During my time at JB HUNT Windsor Locks, CT management was horrible, no respect for new drivers, very slow response time, they were not helpful at all when something went wrong with equipment on the road. Great mix of employees, from different cultures. A lot of Jamaican, and Spanish people, minority were American, Russian and Polish people. The hardest part of the job and most stressful is dealing with NYC customers and NYC traffic. Most enjoyable part was getting to work in the big city, delivering food to downtown Manhattan.
Driver Helper/Installation Specialist (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 27, 2016
A typical day maybe thirteen stops all over San Antonio. I learned how to use a dolly more proficiently. I realize i am a lot stronger than i think. I really wasn't in close contact with management more close with the staff i worked with. Co-workers very experienced people who where knowledgeable about assembling house hold appliances. The hardest part of my job was doing apartments having to do the fourth and fifth floor with no elevator its ruff on the body. Most enjoyable part of my job seeing different parts of tx.

I am so sorry I had to leave j.b.hunt. the reason I had to leave was because I had a child that needed me home because of so personal problems he was having and I couldn't be safe driving for j.b.hunt while he was going through what he was going through. my mind was always on him and I knew it would affect my driving safely so I decided to quit with help from my councilor at the time. this company treated me excellent and I am sorry to have had left and hope they didn't think ill of me how I left. the people I worked made the time away from home not so bad lol a great bunch of people I worked with and the drivers.

Have worked here a month. Sad sad sad. Recruiter totally embellished n she didn't have to because my expectations were so low to begin with. Lol no miles. Poor planning. Have a family vacation scheduled in 8 weeks. Hope I don't go broke before then.
lots of time to eat sleep n workout
have to use my savings to buy food. otherwise I'd starve .
This was not the type of job explained to me by JB Hunt Recruiter
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) – Harvey, MI – August 28, 2016
Job is not hard but is fast paced. Your pay depends on your output. Job consist of delivering coal and stone to the Cleavland Cliffs Mines. The equipment is beat up and needs replacing. They are in the middle of contract renewal or extension talks so I kind of understand them not wanting to replace equipment yet.
Pay is not too bad as long as you produce
hours, recruiter either lied or didnt have correct info, work is 6 days a week
