J.B Hunt Is a Family type business.
Regional/OTR Driver (Current Employee) – Stockton, CA – December 15, 2015
I loved working for the company, They don't call you as a number, but by name. If you run in to issues, they will do everything they can to help you resolve it. Their trucks are top notch and confortable. and the mechanics know their stuff.
I only left because of my wife's health and I needed to be local. other wise I would still be with them.
While there, I learned that they place safety as the number one priority. The travel times are great also. They give you as many miles as you want. and don't pressure you to drive unsafe to get to your destination. along the way. BUT!!! they do pressure you to drive safe and stay alert. Because of this I have avoided many accidents.
Another bonus, they provide SerriusXM to their Regional drivers. no more flippin through channels between stops just to get good music.
The only hard part of the job is home time. While they do everything possible to accommodate home time. you are only home every other week if your driving regional. you have a great opportunity to transfer to their inter-modal department after some time driving. and then you can be home daily.
one last note, a minor negative note. Their Regional OTR trucks have only 1 bed, and no second bunk. and no refrigerator. this will force the drivers to have to spend more on meals while out on the road.
I give this company a 4.5 star rating
SirriusXM, unlimited travel, safety, comfortable trucks.
home time, No refrigerator on trucks
