Suggestions for improvement

  • For the most part, JB Hunt is a well-oiled machine. We all work hard and put it all out there and hope for the results to pan out in our favor.

What I like about the company

Upper level management at JB Hunt is heavily involved in all decision making. There’s a real team spirit alive at JB Hunt. Several times throughout the year, the CEO will make it a point to give every person at corporate a high-five for a job well done. We all work together to create a bigger, better product for our customers.

What I dislike about the company

I’d like to see more opportunities for young talent to be spot-lighted. Currently hard workers are worked hard rather than putting them in positions to accelerate their careers and JB Hunt should really learn to capitalize on their truly talented youngsters when they’re young and full of vigor.

Suggestions for improvement

  • We have way too many people in senior management positions who have forgotten what those in the trenches deal with on a daily basis. There needs to be a program where those senior people take the job of the middle management for a day or more to remember what it's like sitting behind a desk 10 hrs a day, running lickety split to the bathroom and missing 10 phone calls while you're gone. And to remember how difficult it is to deal with truck drivers on a daily basis.

What I like about the company

I've worked here for 29 years. In the last 2 years I have not received a pay raise and in the 10 years prior to that I only received 1% or less and the bonuses have become impossible to achieve especially since I can not directly affect my bonus based on my productivity. This company does very little to take care of their senior personnel. I constantly am told I make too much money and it's constantly thrown in my face that since I'm the most senior person I should be perfect. The only good thing is I have 4 weeks vacation that I have a hard time scheduling even though I'm the most senior person in the company in my position. I'm sorry I have little to nothing good to say about this company and I'm looking for another job.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove that they don't take care of people who have devoted more than half of their life to this company. They don't have a retirement program and unfortunately most of us can't afford to put enough into 401k to ever be able to retire.

Company Culture

Needs significant improvement. Dispatch is a mess, pay is terrible, work- home life is less then non existent.

Support from management

With exception of one or two managers, dispatch and management is in dismay

Teamwork

Team work only applies is more then one person works together.. your out on your own

Freedom to work independently

Yes you work alone all the time

Internal Communication

Theirs is communication, in a personal basis, but the communication is like dial up internet. It disconnects and fail in the chain with the slightest hiccup

Gender Equality

They seem fair on this

Attitude towards older colleagues

Sure they hire older employees, but the respect is not mutual through the entire age range

Career Development

Pretty sure their is no going up in the ladder

Overall compensation for your work

It sounds good, but you make no miles and the amount of hours spent working or waiting, have you making less then minimum wage.

Office / Work Environment

Poor lighting, technology is lacking

Environmental Friendliness

It's trucking... Diesel engines and moving freight

Work-Life Balance

Barely existent, consistently over hours, and enough home time to barely sleep. Waiting made some days a 24 hour venture

Company Image

Company image is a bit off once your hired, but to the general public, it's good

Job Security

The place is a revolving door.. lots of turn over.. 35% just at this terminal. 80% overall in the company

Handicapped Accessibility

Not for the handicap people

Workplace Safety

They teach safety but seems alot of people are always injured

Challenging Work

Pallets aren't hard in nature since they are off loaded by the store, but getting to the store and having a GPS that doesn't send you miles out of the way, or no guidance when your at the stores make it difficult

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity, sure theirs people from all walks of life

Suggestions for improvement

  • Gut the entire dispatch and management and put people that actually have driven trucks and know what their doing

What I like about the company

As a company, it's a broken toy, with no repair in sight

What I dislike about the company

Constantly waiting, broken, non existent trucks, no trailer lighting, disfunctional dispatch
