Commercial Truck Driver Class A certification (Former Employee) –  Lowell, AR 72745September 14, 2017
On a regular work day you would have a full day of driving, safety control, training provided. Meeting every week. Heavy haulage from unknown locations. Weekends off were enjoyable. The company has great personnel fellow drivers and dispatchers.
Pros
matching 401 K, health benefit, rewards for safe work.
Cons
management is all about covering themselves.

Professional Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Lowell ArkansasSeptember 13, 2017

fun place to work
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLSeptember 13, 2017
good company to work for but if you drive local you never know when your load will be ready. if you are a new employee you start at the bottom.you the last load that the warehouse loads so you work all hours of the night. the pay is good for being local avg 1000 a week. if your looking for a job that you can advance in management then this isn't for you jb hunt hires managers right out of college that never drove a truck before.
Pros
pay, benifits and management
Cons
hours, no room for advancement

Good first job, not a lot of room for advancement
Logistics Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Lowell, ARSeptember 10, 2017
This was a great first job for learning about sales and brokerage. Outside of that experience, J.B. Hunt is an old fashioned company that is slow to react to a changing marketplace. They struggle to place people in positions based on their success and personal advancement.
Pros
Relaxed Sales Evironment
Cons
Long work hours, little room for advancement, low pay

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARSeptember 7, 2017
Great company for the driver. Management was looked at as secondary when it came to needs being attended to. While drivers are the core commodity of the company, all employee's should be treated with respect and treated equally.
Pros
Great way to get experience in the transportation field
Cons
Management not helpful when it came to covering your position for vacation

Fast Paced and Energetic Field Branch
Logistics Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 3, 2017
Spending nearly the entire day on the phone and responding to emails - keeping up with market trends, negotiating, communicating to customers, and pricing.

The office was fairly laid back, but you must be self motivated and take initiative to succeed.

Business casual dress.

Stay on your toes.
Driver/Installation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lockbourne, OHAugust 28, 2017
It is a fairly easy job. However, if you happen to have a damaged product that is revealed upon unpackaging, they will try to blame it on you. The routes are horrible and even after being there for a while the route planner will still give you the worst routes and of course the guys that suck up to them and who also cut corners will get the better routes that pay more and get done earlier.
Pros
None
Cons
No advancement

Alot of sitting around
Regional Driver (Former Employee) –  Dayville, CTAugust 24, 2017
Drive 6 hours and take your 10 hour break.
