A disgruntled employe shared his experience in a review, "Horrible management. You'll be in a environment that doesnt respect drivers or customers. Most executives are from University of Arkansas, so diversity of thought is minimal. If you want to progress with your career, you'll need to move to Fayetteville, Arkansas. The commission is far below average. 500k in rev at 12% margin could equal $500 in total commission."
Current Employee - Transportation Manager says"Horrible hours No work life balance A lot of older managers don’t do their jobs so it falls on the good ones. No morale, pay increases are 3% yearly. No empathy managers. No organization structure. They let older managers do whatever and take off whenever they want."

Breakdown Coordinator (Former Employee) says"There was no part of my time with this company that I enjoyed. I can’t express how much I would advise someone to avoid this company at all costs. Toxic doesn’t begin to describe the department I worked in; let alone how much of a disaster it was. The turnover in my department was astronomical, and there’s a reason."
Fleet Manager (Current Employee) says"Hours are too long and the shifts are unusual. Leadership is lacking. Inclusion doesn't take place. Culture often seems biased. Although they promote from within theprocess looks different for everyone."
Driver (Former Employee) says"In the beginning they pay good for about a month. Then after that they please all the new drivers and then when they have about a month in they please the other new drivers coming in. Maybe it was my area I dont know but this place was a waste of time."

Straight Truck Driver (Former Employee) says"I was in the straight truck and home delivery program for JB Hunt Final Mile Services. This particular job was very stressful and time consuming. Not to mention that management and co-workers were not pleasant to work with at all. This job is not good for someone that has a family. I wouldn't recommend anyone to EVER work there.NoneStressful Work Environment"
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) says"They make you work a 50 hr workweek on a salary meant to be for 40. They’re salary increase is a measly 1%, but expect above and beyond from employees. They’re quarterly “bonuses” are insulting. They don’t tell you that bonuses are impacted by driver performance.You have a jobNo work life balance"
Deiver (Former Employee) says"I use to work in west haven Connecticut, omfg Mangement, horrible is understatement , A guess this is what happen when u have persons who don’t operate commercial vehicle managing commercial drivers .. they don’t care about there Driver’s they only care about the The load been delivered they don’t care about your safety I wish the review would allow me to say what I want to say cause I would be calling names.. all west haven manager are horrible every single one of them.NothingNothing"
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) says"They are a bit misleading. Most of the dispatch team and managers are very cool. Only a few of them are embisils and want to micro manage. I was a contractor for them and I got a truck I didn’t want and I froze at night because it didn’t idle . They did nothing about this. They fired me for safety reasons but I was definitely on my way out anyway. You had to work your butt off to get a decent pay. They are definitely just a name and very overrated. I understand the high turnover rate but I am always appreciative of different experience.Nice dispatch managerThey are cut throat"
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) says"I totally regret working for this company. Too many cons to list but you will see favoritism ignorant managers, rude staff very low pay...,I would deal with everything, but the low pay is so ridiculous that you can literally drive for Uber and get a way better pay check.noneeverything bad you never sow in your carrier history, you will see it here. ask other drivers before making your move."
Phil says"I had to deal with JB Hunt for a fridge delivery from Costco. They are a mess, all up. They are not able to deal with the workload that they take and they missed the delivery date by...A WEEK! When the actual delivery day finally came, they gave me a 4 hour window for the delivery. 4 hours during a workday! People work, they don’t have the luxury to waste time waiting for JB Hunt to provide a decent service. Unfortunately I don’t have the option not to use them in the future as they were contracted by Costco, but I already escalated with a manager a Costco the poor service that this delivery company provides. They should go with someone else who is actually able to deliver, on time and with a proper service."
