Houston, TX
CDL driver (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 26, 2014
Pros: excellent opportunity for those foolish individuals who like making $600 per week for 70 hrs
Cons: too many to list. avoid, or don't, but i did warn you.
Do you like being treated like a child?
Do you like being lied to?
Do you like working long hours with poor compensation?
Do you like an overbearing safety department that views you as a liar?
Do you like ignorant coworkers?
Do you like slip seating?

I'll stop here.

JB Hunt is paradise for those seeking the above.

Don't think DCS or Intermodal or whatever other division you choose will be better. They are all the same. They all suck.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Do not work for this company!
C&S Local Driver (Former Employee), York, PAAugust 24, 2014
Pros: home daily/employees
Cons: salary/job/management
JB Hunt will ruin your DAC, fire you and fight to make sure you do not collect unemployment whenever they feel like it! I worked for them for four months. The pay was a joke, nothing like they promised, you might get lucky to see 400-500 a week if you kill yourself. No organization, the favorite drivers get the best runs. Save yourself the trouble and work for a company that values their employees.

If you don't perform the Smith system, you will be terminated. They have people following you around to make sure your not talking on your cell phone, because if your caught, you will be terminated. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving, and finding another one.

Their way or no way
Yard Jockey (Former Employee), Brattleboro, VTAugust 20, 2014
Pros: home time...
Cons: equipment, pay, hours, management, did i miss anything...
I worked for them in Brattleboro vt. As a yard jockey, the work to pay balance is way out of whack. 16. Per hour is not a lot of money when they keep you near the 45hr per week. The things they have you do.( fueling trailers, door swaps, pretripping equipment, ect... Just not worth it. Jb hunt break down is a joke when you need service on the road. Just overall a bad experience here. Look elsewhere if at all possible. I would consider this short term employment at best.

trailing assistant (Current Employee), Lowell, ArkansasAugust 19, 2014
Pros: customer service with the drivers and vendors
Cons: need more growth and opportunities to move around. educate employees
My current position are really about family first and that is something I really love about the company and they really support the military. The hardest part of the job would be under staff but that is with any company but everyone overcome and adapt to the situation. Management cares about the employess. I learn something new about our equipment every day which I love and that is something that is very important for me. Growth with a company and being able to be a team player for a company and help it grow and others. My typical of day is to take care of my vendors invoices , make sure my drivers equipment are fixed in a timely manner and being a team player within my department when they need me to on top of my work load.

HORRIBLE!!!
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Harrisburg, PAAugust 6, 2014
Pros: none!!!!!!!
Cons: management, pay, miles, oh did i mention-management!
STAY AWAY!!! This is a horrible place to work. Management feels like they know everything and wont listen to a word the truck driver says, even when the truck driver is right.

Never work for Harrisburg, PA intermodal. They promise $1,000 take home pay and I only make half that! They promise loads and we cant get any! Again, management doesn't want to hear what you have to say. I get written up all the time for minor stuff. Also a VERY unethical company!

no pay raises
CLASS A CDL DRIVER (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 4, 2014
Pros: easy work, just bump docks, drop n hooks
Cons: no pay raises, low compensation, long hours
I still work for JB hunt, but I am looking for another job. I've talked to other jb hunt drivers that have been working here in Houston for 6-7 years and no one has got a pay raise. I'm sure the company has charged more for freight during the last 6 years, but I think the profits go to the share holders, not the drivers.

Not bad
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Winlock, WAJuly 29, 2014
I enjoy the job, just not the time away from home. The recruiter said it would be 1-2 nights away per week, in reality it is 3-4 night on a regular basis.

Driver (Current Employee), HoustonJuly 27, 2014
Cons: as a driver they provide very poor eye insurance.
Expected to work many hours 14 + daily in an environment that is very physically demanding then drive for 30 mins to 2 hours at a time the pay could be better then what is provided. FMS tries to be a jack of all and a master but fails at both.
