Must know the job to make money!
Intermodal Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  South Gate, CANovember 11, 2015
To be an intermodal truck driver at J.B.Hunt, you must learn the ins and outs of the job. Know the rules, know what you get paid for, and be safe. If you can do this, then the company is pretty nice to work for.
Pros
Paid Time Off program, Flexable work schedual, Promote Safety
Cons
Activity based pay, Not always clear what you can get paid for. High turnover.

Overall the company was not terrible to work for but they misstated what the pay would be.
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Taunton, MANovember 10, 2015
Working for J.B. Hunt was not bad. 10 to 12 hr days was standard and sometimes 14 hr days when they were busy. I came in with a lot of experience and learned to pace my self. The management was I feel overall good and there was good communication. The hardest part of the job was during the winter months. The most enjoyable part of the job was generally the customers.
Pros
Customers and having a good working relationship with them
Cons
During the winter, not being able to make my deliveries in a timely manner due to snow conditions.

Great Place to Work, Wrong Position
Career Placement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lowell, ARNovember 9, 2015
The CPS position is not for everyone, but JB Hunt as a company is a fantastic place to work. Extremely high turnover in the CDP department that won't stop anytime soon, but the rest of the company is solid and retains employees well.

A great place to gain experience for new drivers.
Local Driver (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 4, 2015
The management needs improvement. Dispatch needs improvement. Compensation by the hour would be ideal for a time consuming job such as working a JB Hunt. You're in and out of rail yards for various times in addition to traveling to the destination.
Pros
Well maintained equipment
Cons
Compensation.

BEWARE
Regional Commercial Driver, Dry (Former Employee) –  South Gate, CANovember 1, 2015
I would not suggest any driver to waste their time driving for JB Hunt. Do not for one instant believe their "false advertising" you will not make any money and the waiting period for health insurance is 90 days! They are a bunch of crooks, period.
Pros
There are no PROS with JB HUNT
Cons
too many cons to list...

Very competitive work environment, management worked very well with sales and operations to help them achieve their goals
TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Lowell, AROctober 26, 2015
JBH is where I learned everything that I learned regarding transportation as a whole as well as account management. Management working closely with sales and operations as well as coaching sales and operations is a driving force in that corporation. I worked a lot of hours there but never minded doing it. I never minded being the one to go above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done. They recognized hard work and dedication.
Pros
Advancement, Training Availability
Cons
Sometimes limited in ways of doing things when it comes to brokerage
