Local Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 22, 2018
Advertisement said $1000 a week, more like $400 or $500 and yes I worked my full shift. Dispatch is slow, some good ones but they all collaborate each other’s boards. You get paid for almost everything you do except search for an empty. My question was I need a location for an empty. The answer back was there are trailers in the general terminal location or lots or at a customers. Do you really expect me to memorize these locations? I don’t get paid to search for and empty and also not get paid to the amount stated. I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone. Un organized, un productive and un professional.
Flex schedule, you have a job at least.
Lazy, slow to respond and not compensated as advertised
Intermodal Truck Driver (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – September 20, 2018
I have had a fantastic experience so far from dispatch and being out in the field hauling. If you are just starting, take it step by step, the San Bernardino rail yards can be a bit confusing in the beginning, but as long as you ask as many questions as you can during training you will set yourself up for LESS STRESS. I came from a job that was 95% touch freight, so this job makes it much easier on my bones. The JB Hunt truck driving app on your phone makes this job so very less stressful. It tracks everything you do and all assignments that are dispatched on you and have completed. The trainers here are very respectful and take the time to show you how to get the job done correctly and safely. I would highly recommend those with (experience) to give this company a go.
HOME EVERY DAY!! 100% No touch. Automatic trucks or 10 speeds.
There are no cons. Work hard and you get to come home! Don't be lazy.
You could easily spend 4 hours just waiting for a load and when you finally get a load. It's 12-14 hours long. There's no pay for when you have to take your 10 hour break out on the road. Also during a breakdown if it does not benefit dispatch to pick you up at the time. You can be left stranded for a couple days before they send someone out to get you.
Driver (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 19, 2018
I was told I’d be making 50k, it’s more like 37k.. weekends off and holidays paid time off. Currently not getting these things. The work performed here is super easy, I’m on a chep account hauling nothing but pallets. When times are slow, the boss will bobtail me all over the place counting and finding our trailers and moving them to other places for no reason, wasting time.
Client Services Technician (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 13, 2018
Management is constantly being shifted or moved, so every few months you have a new manager that does things their way. Then six months later, it is the same thing again. It gets to wear on you. The company expected all salary people to work at least 45 hours a week and 50+ being standard. This causes home life to become strained. You don't know when you are going to be able to go home for the day.
The benefits package is not bad, but it is very costly. I was paying over 30 percent of my wages to pay for insurance.
It's just not a good place for people who want to have a family.
Carrier Adoption Representative (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 12, 2018
The ICS business unit is very interesting. There seem to be teams that move in the right direction and make the business a lot of money while other teams are pure costs. The culture is not great, very misogynistic and overall not a professional environment compared to my time at other Fortune 500 companies. In all, I would recommend J.B. Hunt to somebody while warning them of these short-comings.
We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback. Thank you for helping us improve the driver experience!

UTILIZATION OFFICE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 10, 2018
As a utilization office specialist you are the backbone for billing. It is hard work at first and things change with the growing market but it really helps you when you want to move up into different departments.
Thanks for sharing your positive feedback! We appreciate you.

Good company not the best but fair, safety oriented and honest management. They provide very good trining for people interested in impruving and brnrfits are in level with other transportation companies.
Thanks for being a part of the J.B. Hunt family! We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.

Work Environment not up with the times.
Telematics Product Manager (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 6, 2018
Technology SDLC is lacking in structure. They are trying to instill a new culture with the technology and engineering departments. Management has the tendency of only working at JBHT and not other organizations. Leadership is minimal.
