    Good experience in Logistics however compensation and career path do not match up with my interests

    Current Employee - Carrier Sales Coordinator in Lowell, AR (US)
    Current Employee - Carrier Sales Coordinator in Lowell, AR (US)

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The corporate culture is very friendly and inviting. Fortune 500 gives great exposure to large customers and all aspects of the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Slow to react to internal issues or employee needs. Compensation no better than industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on retaining talent and cutting turnover rate. Young workers get the impression that intelligence and hard work isn't valued like it should be.

    Pros

    Pay, Rate of raises, benefits, great eating & exercise facilities on site.

    Cons

    High Stress, High Competition. Everyone is at each others throats to move up and the pace is so quick that you have to be very careful not to drown. If it isn't something your heart is in it will eat you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more PTO. Spread team work evenly. Recognize success and reward.
