    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allows flexibility in your schedule to work from home. It is very fast pace environment, gives you an opportunity to manage your own business, make executive decisions, and lead/direct a team of managers. It is a great stepping stone to grow as a mid-level manager and gain different experiences you really can't get from normal day to day operations. This position definitely trains you on how to be a good multi-tasker.

    Cons

    Always on call 24/7, and working 50-60 hours a week. Work-Life balance is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-Life balance needs to improve for all managers. Need to come up with a solution where employees can go home and not have to answer business phone calls on the weekends or after hours.
