My experience. Over 20 yrs of service. I was always just a number not an employee.
Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 18, 2018
Enjoyed working with them for over 20 years. Thought I was part of a really good company that took care of their employees. When I reached a point of no advancement in my area, I was offered a job with great pay and benefits. Was a tough decision to leave, but decided it would be better for me in the future. After putting in my notice, I worked till the last day. Had over 7 weeks of vacation and my manager tried to get me paid for it but was denied. I have went above and beyond many times. I sacrificed family time and my wellbeing many times. Up to the last day, I felt good about JB hunt. My last day was like I only been there a year. That’s when I realized that I was just a number.

JB HUNT Intermodal Okay company to work for.
Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – November 9, 2018
Okay company to work for but I was looking to make more capital for the work involved on delivery and mileage. I have noticed that within my experience driving tractor trailers there is always something new to learn weather the people you meet or the customers you come across on the daily basis, there is always a challenge to help enhance your customer service capabilities as a professional driver.
Thanks for reaching out. We so appreciate your feedback! We are always striving to improve the driver experience, and we are thankful for your comments.

Unorganized and Unprofessional
Independent Contractor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 9, 2018
This company is no different than any other company, they tell you what you want to hear. When you get here it is toldly different. Contract is not a walk away lease.They are trying to force older trucks with high mileage on independent contractors. No trucks are available for drivers in orientation. They have a take ot or leave it attitude. I was told I would receive a newer truck. I gave up a nice truck to come here. It's either wait on a truck and get paid $100 while waiting. No one is here to make $100 per day. If they don't have trucks available they shouldn't waste people's time and money coming here. Now that we are here, they will not get any new trucks until next year. The way we are being treated here is unacceptable. I would not recommend this company to anyone.
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 9, 2018
Entering a truck driving career, I couldn't have selected a better company than JB Hunt. They were fair and upfront on all requirements. They kept me busy, and provided all the tools to be safe and productive.
big company wide payraise in 1997, which raised industry standards
not a good place to work if you like a steady paycheck
Driver (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 7, 2018
Not a good place to work if you like both making, and spending time with your family... if you work enough hours you will make decent money but in order to make decent money you have to give up a lot of family time. i worked 12-13 hours a day 6 days a week in order to get the bills paid and maybe take the kids to go do something fun on Sunday... Health benefits are really expensive and are only good for the employee being insured alone... this isn't as much of a family friendly company as they claim.
decent pay if you work enough hours/days
have to chose between spending time with family or making enough to pay the bills.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Harrisburg, PA 17111 – November 7, 2018
J.B. Hunt was an alright company to work for. But when I had a problem that needed addressed, everyone pushed you onto someone else and nothing got done about the issues. Pay, time off, and benefits were all pretty good. Just I don't want to work for a company that doesn't back you up when they need you more than you need them.
We are sorry to hear that. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback!

Dedicated Driver (Former Employee) – Tx, WI – November 7, 2018
I had work on several dedicated accounts, and was always satisfied with my work load, management, equipment, working conditions, pay, time off, and only left due to health reasons. I would recommend employment with J B Hunt, to anyone, looking for excellent home time, great pay, relaxed atmosphere and great equipment.
Job is ok if you want be gone most of the time. no advancement opportunities. pay would be ok for a family without a lot of expenses. Working to long hours and to many company regulation that are not necessary.
I worked for JB Hunt for 3 years. Payroll issues started within the first year but I didn't pay much attention at first. Then I noticed and started checking only to find they were shorting my check every week. It'd be different amounts every week but once it was short by $425! I tried to get the issue resolved, gave more than enough time for a resolution and no one bothered fixing it so I left them finally.
