Wouldn't recommend this job
Customer Experience Representative (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AROctober 16, 2017
In my year and a half at Hunt, I became bitter and grew to dislike my job very much. Pay isn't what it needs to be for what we put up with, and the lack of management skills is apparent.
Pros
PTO and understanding on sicknesses
Cons
Pay, lack of good management

Fleet Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 14, 2017
Everyday something new happens, and a new issue arises that you may not be familiar with. You are in charge of a certain amount of drivers that you watch over throughout the day. Your main duty is to make sure the drivers are making OTD (On time delivery). During the drivers tour of duty you are to alleviate any issues that may arise and to make strategic business decisions that don't affect the efficiency and time sensitive day to day business operations.

Truck Driver Class (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AROctober 13, 2017
They want to manage your pockets the way they want you to believe you suppose you to make. Pretty much its a starting place for new drivers. They make sure they work you for the little money they give you.

Intermodal Driver (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 3, 2017
JB Hunt is a great company to work for if you're just getting started into truck driving. Even if you plan to retire they're great to work for. I worked for the Chicago intermodal division, Typically you will recieve a dispatch the pick up a load at a rail yard or shipper/receiver. Then take it to a rail or reciever/shipper. you will always go from shipper/receiver to rail, or rail to shipper/receiver. Which makes it great from planning you're trips for the best milage. If you are on top of setting your ETA then you will more than likely be have a good week and will make it much less stressful to do your job. The only con I have about this company is sometimes the dispatchers arent on the same page as you are. and it can be hard to understand what they are talking about over the OBC system. Yes they do use electronic logs and PeopleNet systems. All in all a great company to work for.

Overworked and underpaid
Driver/Installer (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VASeptember 28, 2017
Managers look out for themselves and the end of the year bonus they get. Meaning, the less money they spend, the bigger bonus they get which means less looking out for you and making you do things that you shouldnt be doing. Also you are not paid enough for the physical requirements of the job and the stressed placed upon you.
