Productive and Mature Work place
Local Driver (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJuly 10, 2014
Pros: i love the paid time off program you accumulate hours every week
Cons: healthcare to high need a better rate plan
A typical day would consist of going in and out of the
rail yards and dropping off containers to customers.

Managers on night shift are great

The job is laid back as long as you do your part.

Cubicle work environment
ICS Flatbed Operations Broker (Current Employee), Lowell, ARJuly 9, 2014
Pros: free lunches time to time, holidays off
Cons: management, too enclosed
7 am - 5pm workdays, Monday- Friday.

Sit in a cubicle for 9+ hours

Management is not the best... could use a bit more construction. Micro managing is a huge thing.

Hardest part of the job is details. Have to pay a lot of attention to detail. One mistake can jeopardize a huge part of the project.

OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), Lowell, ARJuly 7, 2014
Pros: easy company to work for
Cons: no miles. sit sit sit
if you are not looking to drive a lot of miles or if you're looking to sit it as much as you drive then this is the company for you. Very easy to work for. No touch freight. Approximately 2,000 miles a week.if your happy making between 400 and 600 dollars a week then call a recruiter today.Company does not drive all 48 although they say they do. trucks – more... equipped with electronic logs. also equipped with wingman and rollover sensor. The electronic logs are not that bad but the other two items make the truck very hard to drive and wlll get you in trouble with safety and will negatively impact your driving record.. basically they are not much different from any of the other government subsidized companies. They are big so they can afford to have you sit. I was in over the road truck driver and the worst thing that they would do that would totally agrivate me off would be to send me to the rail yard and move around empty rail boxes. They would pay you $100 meanwhile you're losing 500 miles over the road because that's what you could have accomplished that day. They do not have enough over the road freight to keep all the drivers busy. they're big money making part of the business is intermodal or rail boxes. Next time you see a train pull out of Chicago or any other rail yard look and see how many JB Hunt boxes are on it. That is where their money is. Over the road is it not a priority for j b hunt driving. – less

VACATION ON WHEELS
Commercial Driver (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 19, 2014
Driving the vehicle is the main responsibility of the commercial truck driver, but some also need to load and unload cargo. Long-haul truck drivers must maintain a logbook of their driving activities to ensure compliance with federal regulations governing the rest and work periods for operators. Drivers also keep a record of vehicle inspections and – more... make sure the truck is equipped with safety equipment, such as hazardous material placards. Some long-haul truck drivers plan their route according to a delivery schedule. Local-delivery drivers may be required to sell products or services to stores and businesses on their route, obtain signatures from recipients – less

This company sucks
Driver/Installer (Current Employee), Hayward, CAMay 27, 2014
Pros: not sure
Cons: everything else
Why you ask? They are dishonest, not forthcoming about their practices, and disorganized. Every time the company starts losing money the drivers end up getting screwed. I received a flyer in the mail after Obama Care was implemented that health care costs would rise and that everyone along with the company would have to share in the increase in costs. – more... It increased $50/wk when the actual cost of the premiums was only $30/wk. The company took advantage of the employees expected increase and decided to start paying $20 less/week than before and allowing the employee to cover that $20/week. They have over 16,000 employees. Saving $320,000/week. Good job guys. Their is no sympathy toward the driver you are just expected to try and complete your route no matter how unreasonable. The pay was good before a recent change (because the company is losing money), the amount you get payed now for the type of work and the amount of hours worked is laughable. The position used to require a class a or b drivers license. Most commercial drivers who have been part of a organized company realize how screwed up the company is and leave. The turn-over rate for drivers is ridiculous. So now the company has no requirement for a commercial drivers license which opens the doors to anyone willing to do the work for the lower pay rates. They expect you to work 12-14 hours/day delivering and installing appliances on a production-base payed system that isn't fair . They may send you out to deliver a 700 lb refrigerator (That's not a typo 700 lbs) by yourself. They can't keep quality installers (the guys who help the driver out in the field) because they pay them $9/hr with no benefits. They don't even work for JB Hunt, they work for a staffing agency called Bright Sky (Gloomy Skies if you ask me). So when the "quality" installers they employ who typically are fresh out of high school or out of options calls off or quits from being over-worked you will be expected to do your work by yourself with no increase in pay. The more experienced you become the more they take advantage of you. Take my word. This company is not worker friendly and heading down-hill. Stay away. The only reason I gave 2 stars because believe it or not I actually like my work and I was paid well until the recent changes. – less

A Job for travelers
Class A Truck Driver (Former Employee), Tracy, CAMay 22, 2014
Pros: you travel alot
Cons: random off days
14hr work days is the typical work day as a Class A Driver. You learn patience in this line of work. Management are very laid back and easy to work with along with other drivers. Not knowing if you'll make it home from some deliveries is the hardest part at times with the job but its manageable. The places you get to travel to and the companies you – more... get to work with are exciting at times. – less

THE TRUTH !!!!
Worker (Current Employee), GeorgiaMay 18, 2014
Pros: work schedule
Cons: management, pay, work conditions
Jbhunt is a multi billion dollar company (I know this because they so gladly point it out to you) that staves out it employees. There is no room for advancement unless you're one of the good old boys ,management are nothing more than Modern day slave drivers, Jb likes it that way so in order for them to receive there bonuses checks , while you live – more... pay check to pay check , drivers have to fight dispatch everyday to get there correct pay, mechanic have to deal with hazardous work conditions, faulty equipment and rude management (but let them tell it SAFETY IS THERE MAIN GOAL when supervisor's cover up half the accidents) the pay scale they use is very very outdated a cost of living raise has been none existing for a quite sometime now --BE AWARE of this company !!! Do be fooled by the smoke and mirrors – less

Good place to work, but!
Driver/Support DCS (Current Employee), Hatfield, MAMay 14, 2014
Pros: pay, co-workers and management very friendly, training
Cons: use of poor equipment from time to time, lack of commitment to drivers when pedestrians, using 7-8 year old trucks, maintenance and return of truck to driver
A typical day starts in a drop yard, picking up a shuttled load, or an empty trailer and driving to the terminal for your load assignment. Operating in the extreme conditions of New York city and the 5 boroughs with very tight streets, one ways, and blind side backing, low bridge heights, and L's. I was taught the Smith system of driving which on open – more... road is great but much more difficult to apply in the extreme conditions stated above. The co-workers there were always very helpful even if the company didn't stand behind the driver but instead blamed them for any and everything that happens. Overall a good place to work and would be better with a little more tolerance of drivers having a difficult time adjusting to what is expected. – less

Lots of mileage, detention, pay discrepancies
Driver (Current Employee), Elwood ILMay 8, 2014
Pros: safety
Cons: pay, pay pay
Based out of Elwood Home Depot account. Our mileage starts 15 miles away in Romeoville IL so our mileage is short by 30 miles everyday. Often paid miles much shorter than driven miles, sometimes short by 1/2. Recently drove a run for 176 miles and received 72 miles in pay. Detention often not paid, especially detention that cannot be billed to Home – more... Depot ie waiting for dispatch/ paperwork.
JB Hunt has always had a bad reputation for pay and they live up to it.
Company is good about safety now that they are self insured.
Use them as a in between jobs bridge and have a quick exit plan! – less

Not bad
Driver/Lumper (Former Employee), Yorktown, IN/ Chicago, ILApril 30, 2014
Pros: compensation pays always paid, home time
Cons: nothing worse than a typical tucking co.
There are a lot of perks to this company, the pay is great and depending on the account you are on great home time, and you will get all of your comp pays such as lay over breakdown detention etc. Now for the bad never in 2+ years employment have I met a driver who didn't whine about everything lol, the driver managers are a joke most of them have never – more... seen a truck till the started working for JB, they are good about getting you the miles but for not being forced dispatch they sure force you to take any load they push on you, and usually the loads are already late when dispatched or you'll have about 1 hour to deliver or pick up 3 hours away, that being said a great company to work for since all the bad is not as bad as most trucking companies out there, and there are way worse companies – less

j.b. hunt doesn't want truck drivers to work for them
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Lowell, ARApril 28, 2014
Pros: hometime
Cons: poor safety attitude poor administrative staff and manegment
I had many safety concerns and when I voiced my concerns I was ignored , and when I persisted and eventually fired over a forced dispatch overweight load.
very unsafe company with a 62 mph governor and a bendix wingman system that just adds to reasons for them to fire you

dilapidated equipment their main concern is money not safety.
