At J.B. Hunt, career paths aren’t something we simply advertise – our employees live them out every day.
J.B. Hunt driver Steve Kirschbaum is proof of that. Kirschbaum, a three million miler, has been driving with J.B. Hunt for almost 25 years and has worked in every business unit. Starting out as a truckload driver, he’s since run intermodal, automotive and is currently a team driver for a dedicated account in Arlington, TX.
When asked about his driving experiences over the years, Kirschbaum said, “Different job opportunities J.B. Hunt offers give you more knowledge about the industry. All of them teach you something new and challenge you.”
Job opportunities and a steady pay check are just a couple of reasons Kirschbaum said he’s stayed with J.B. Hunt so long. Fellow J.B. Hunt driver David Spore can attest to that.
Spore, a three million miler, has been with J.B. Hunt since November of 1990 and drives team with Kirschbaum (if you’re keeping count, that’s over 6 million safe miles and almost 48 years of driving combined).
“Back then, there were companies out there that drivers would complain about not getting paid. I’ve gotten a paycheck every Thursday since November of 1990,” Spore said.
In his years at the company, Spore has seen J.B. Hunt grow into one of the largest carries in the nation.
“I’ve seen a big change in everything,” Spore said. “The trucks…the trailers…I did some rail as OTR before J.B. Hunt Intermodal existed.”
Spore has also built relationships with his coworkers and said he likes seeing operations managers grow into corporate positions and celebrating achievements, like three million miles of safe driving, with them.
