OTR Tractor Trailer Driver (Current Employee) – Hobart, IN – May 7, 2016
I enjoy the people I work with. My only gripe is money. Sure I make the cents per mile but I haven't been getting the miles. Been with me for almost a quarter now and the only reason I went JB was the possible money through guarantee by even the dispatch team. We all know the game but at the time I recieved the call I was in dire need. The unfortunate aspect is it has hurt me more than helped. I truly wish it were different.
National Account Manager (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – July 18, 2016
JB Hunt is an industry leader in supply chain logistics that offers its clients a vast array Work/life balance is an issue with most sales people having to constantly travel or take care of service issues at night and on weekends. Pressure to bring in business is heavy but if you are successful you will be compensated.
Overall Hunt has a strong vision for the future. There will be growth opportunities for the right person especially women.
Class 8 Diesel Technician (Current Employee) – Channahon, IL – November 23, 2015
I perform federal safety inspections daily on vehicles so that they are safe to travel down the road and meet strict federal safety DOT regulations for 50,000 miles. These vehicles routinely have failures that require immediate repair or replacement to safely operate the vehicle or to maintain optimum life of powertrain, electrical, and mechanical components. These jobs are timed and graded based upon completion and accuracy. I am trained in diagnostic scanning equipment for Cummins, Navistar, Detroit Diesel, and CAT. I am a quick study and require little to no supervision. I lookforward to reviewing my quallifications in person if you believe that my skills will benefit us both mutually. I am looking for a career with an establlished company who is exited to expand on my skills.Thank you for your time and consideration.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Shafter, CA – March 19, 2016
It is a great starting Job for anyone straight out of college that wants an opportunity to prove themselves. It has Job security as well. It is a stressful job but if you keep your head down and work it will open doors for your career.
Area Risk Manager (Current Employee) – Sandston, VA – March 19, 2016
Good company for a young person to enter out of college. Good starting pay and rapid advancement are possible. You must be willing to relocate to move quickly otherwise you will become stagnant and get passed over
I have learned alot from working the dedicated contact services department
Operations Office Specialist (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – April 4, 2016
Lots of inbound and outbound calls for regional and local distribution centers all over the US, I have four locations that I call and schedule home deliveries for :: One in Hanover, MD, Corapolis, PA, Wichita, KS and one in Port Allen, LA... Love being able to come through for a customer that is in need of an appliance if they have been without for a while.. or if a birthday present can be delivered on time..
Excellent place to work. Great benefits and good hours.
Installation Specialist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – July 13, 2016
Excellent place to work and great benefits, along with good working hours. I enjoyed meeting their customers and working with the contractors on builder jobs. JB Hunt was the "final mile" of their appliance delivery. We ensured the customer's new appliances and other products were installed in a timely manner and made sure they worked properly.
Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 24, 2016
a typical day at work started with unloading 3 semi trucks stacked with dryers washers fridges . i learned alot about the type of work.management was awesome!!!.my co workes were very friendly and helped me when i needed it. the hardest part of the job was unloading trailers by yourself . the most enjoyable part of the work day was going home
Great company to work for if you like being away from home.
Driver (Current Employee) – New Jersey – February 29, 2016
On any given day, you start with a safety and maintenance check. On average, you drive 600 miles before your hours run out. Typically a 12-14 hour day, then sleep in the truck. The company does have local positions, but they require a Hazmat endorsement.
The hardest part of the job is being away from my family for long periods of time for the average of 7-10 days.
Nice equipment, very safety oriented, drivers are treated with respect.
Sporadic mileage for paychecks, only 34 hour reset at home.
Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Southern California – February 12, 2015
JB Hunt is a good company to work for in terms of transportation but there is a large presence of the "Good Ole Boys" club. If you don't know people that are at the executive level, it is tough to advance. Also the pay and compensation is low compared to the responsibilities given to managers who have to be on call 24/7 a week. There isn't really a work life balance and you are expected to work during off hours and weekends.
you can manage your own business and make majority of the decisions.
it is a stressful job for having to manage your truck drivers, manage your relationship with the customer, and meet financial goals.
Driver (Former Employee) – Lithia Springs, GA – January 26, 2016
The most enjoyable part of my job was the interacting with customers and the pay. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the paperwork mix ups that seemed to happen at least once a day. My day usually consisted of picking up and delivering to rail yards after inspecting the truck. Management was efficient and my co-workers were good hard working people. I learned patience and also got to know the area really well.
Partnership Development Analyst II (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – April 11, 2016
I work anything between 100 emails a day to problem solving several 3pl accounts. I am the middle person that is all hands on deck for current issues to aftermath. I love a great environment where my personality is able to shine and grow and work close to the work family. Hardest part of the job is always finding balance to be able to give everyone the attention they are needing.
Cargill Meats Outbound 3rd party Account Manager with JBHunt Transport
3rd party account manager (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – January 7, 2016
A typical day at work is getting in at 6am. Starting the day by checking on my drivers positions along their routes. Notifying the customer, Cargill, if any problems have or will arrive in the future. Holding drivers for 2nd runs or random pick-ups throughout the day. I completed: payroll, vacation time, Physicals, DOT requirement, KPI's for customer and JB Hunt, Forecast, safety reviews, driver monthly training, violations, and multiple other things like a small business. I see my boss twice a year. Much of the account is left in my hands to run at tip-top shape.
Always on call and ready to fix a problem.
Getting calls when you are sleeping, but the Job needs to get completed.
Operation Service Manager (Current Employee) – Edgerton, KS – July 2, 2016
Fast growing trucking company with good pay and good benefits. However, 12 hour work days are the norm in a stressful office setting where it's hard to get away for lunch. The result is high turnover and high burnout.
Good pay for the industry. Fun group of co-workers.
Long work days with high stress. Being able to get away for lunch breaks is dificult.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – July 21, 2016
I learned a lot working here, I believe they could do better at training and explaining company policies by the book instead how workers interpret them. I learned so much about organization, computer skills, and time management.
Productive and fun workplace with an exercise room
Finance Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – April 27, 2015
Everyone has the right to form their own opinion, and I do not have the best knowledge of anything out of my department. I am more than happy to say how I feel, though. I do not recommend starting in an entry level position unless you are desperate for a job. If you can get into the right department, such as Intermodal or ICS, you will go a long ways! The people who work here are great, and even the executives and CEO are respectable people. Every manager has their own way of doing things, but based on my experience with the management team, I would not think she/he were a manager. She/he seems to come and go as she/he pleases, and she/he does not do well with confrontation. The coworkers are great! The environment is excellent! You will definitely get your lunch and breaks. The company offers great and affordable benefits plus the opportunity to accrue PTO and earn Vacation Time after a year of dedication to the company. Overall, the company is a good place to work. Must be motivated in every aspect!
Exercise equipment, daily lunch and breakfast vendors, friendly environment
Not the greatest compensation, managerial team(s) could be improved
