Holidays on the Road

Holidays on the Road

Nov 26 2014

J.B. Hunt TruckAs the holiday season approaches, we’d like to take a minute to remind you of some of our efforts to make this difficult time of year a little easier for you, our drivers. We know being away from your family during this season is tough, especially for our Truckload drivers who are gone for weeks at a time. Our hope is that, with proper planning and communication, we can make this time worthwhile for our drivers.

To ensure our drivers are moving and therefore making money, our Truckload drivers have the benefit of being able to pre-plan loads a day in advance. Additionally, many drivers are permitted to have a rider – allowing them to spend this time with a friend or loved one in their home away from home.

We are proud that the majority of our drivers will be home for Thanksgiving Day, and it is our goal to get every driver home on Christmas. While most of America enjoys days off around the holidays, from the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to give you a special thank you for making a great sacrifice and keeping us moving during this time.

I Found: Financial Stablility at J.B. Hunt

I Found: Financial Stablility at J.B. Hunt

Jul 11 2014

Darren, Rick and Rob are three drivers with three different career paths. However different, they have one thing in common: They all found financial stability at J.B. Hunt. Combined, they have 59 years of driving experience with J.B. Hunt and have each prospered in their respective business unit.

Darren currently drives local intermodal out of Cleveland, OH and says he stumbled onto J.B. Hunt many years ago by making a wrong turn and ending up at the Cincinnati terminal.

J.B. Hunt Intermodal

Darren – 25 Years with J.B. Hunt

A 25 year veteran with the company and a Million Mile driver, Darren says he’s here for good. “In all the years I’ve been here, I’ve never thought of going somewhere else.” Darren said, “For me it has been stable employment—I’ve never been laid off, never missed a paycheck. If you want to work, this is the place to make money.”

One thing Darren utilizes is J.B. Hunt’s retirement plan. “J.B. Hunt offers a 401(k) with company match. As long as you contribute money to your retirement plan, they match it. And that’s me looking out for my future.”

Rick is a Truckload driver and is also a 2 Million Mile Safe driver. He says driving with J.B. Hunt pays off, “Almost 20 years of safe driving comes with a nice little bonus if you stick it out long enough to get it. It’s a $10,000 bonus for 2 Million Miles and a $5,000 bonus for 1 Million Miles. It’s a nice award to get.”

Rick – 19 Years with J.B. Hunt

Through the years, Rick has seen drivers leave J.B. Hunt and continue to come back, “If you try hard, you can make good money here. I still make really good money compared to any other job I’ve had.”

A straightforward man, Rick said, “I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t happy with the career I’ve made for myself. I don’t like the aspect of being away from home a lot, but the money I make balances that out for me.”

DCS driver Rob has driven Dedicated in all his 15 years with J.B. Hunt. In fact, watching the company, and DCS in particular, grow is one of the things Rob enjoys most about his job. “I very much enjoy my career with J.B. Hunt and my financial gains have been crazy.” He added, “When I was with the other company, I was a trainer and my first year with J.B. Hunt I made more money as a solo driver than I did training new guys who had never driven before.”

Dedicated Driver

Rob – 15 Years with J.B. Hunt

Rob received the 2011 Driver of the Year Award for his region and said this to fellow drivers, “If you just do your job right, the money will come. Run everything legal and you won’t have to worry about making money. It’s a great place; I truly recommend it to everybody.”

Find your fit with J.B. Hunt and start a career with financial stability today! Call 1-877-791-9458 or pre-qualify online. Visit our Youtube page to hear more from Darren, Rick and Rob.
