J.B Hunt Trucking Reviews from real truckers
I am an employee for JB hunt and I have worked for the company for more than 4 years now. The company has good bonuses especially if you land in a good branch and a great environment to work in. However, what I do not like about the company are the long hours, poor systems that are sometimes not effective, temperamental management and slackness in dealing with employee complains on the management.

I worked as a full time employee for JB hunt and I would never recommend it to anyone out there. Okay..Getting 20 bucks every hour was ok. They had well maintained trucks…can’t think of anything else better than that. The management is from hell! The truck which I was given broke down so many times and even after I explained the problem to them, they could not give me a better truck or better still get me a rental one. They stayed with my pay for about 3 weeks and I finally decided to quit. They still never got me my last check that was about $450. My advice to the management: you had better fire those people who run the FMS in Minneapolis. Pay my last check. Spending all the time on the phone reminding you about my pay is not that fun! This is one company I will never go back to work in even if it was the last one standing! (Lewis)
The company was great and fun to work for. Everyone possessed a good personality and they were all willing and ready to help especially when I just joined the company. The management was great too. You work with both production and upper management which is a great tool for anyone who wants to move forward. I worked for the intermodal division out of Haslet. They had very steady miles and I never spend more than one hour waiting for loads. They had well maintained vehicles which run so well. The intermodal boxes are often fine, but in most cases, they use recapped tires on them therefore they blow out a lot of times. The best thing is that I could always go back home to my family each weekend. It was the first company I worked for right out of school and they sure were excellent.( Laurel)
