What Can You Find at J.B. Hunt?

What Can You Find at J.B. Hunt?

Apr 10 2014

IMG_7942Ken Fryar has driven for J.B. Hunt for only three years, but he knows this is where he wants to retire.

“I love driving for J.B. Hunt,” says the intermodal driver. “I don’t see me moving anywhere or anyplace.”

Ken started as a regional intermodal driver running out of Chicago and transferred to his current position as a local driver.

“The transition wasn’t bad, but it’s a big difference between moving regional freight and local freight. You’re in and out of the truck more. I move a lot of freight. So when I am working, I am moving.”

When asked what his favorite part is about driving local, Ken didn’t hesitate.

“Home time” he answered. “I love going home. I love if I want to see my daughter, I can. I can go out and see the guys and I get to ride my motorcycle a lot more than when I was a regional driver.”

Ken’s typical day as a driver includes him coming in around 6:00 am, getting his paperwork from his manager, Erin, grabbing breakfast, pre-tripping his truck and then heading out for the day.

“Once I get in the truck, it’s constant moving all day long. The work flow is very heavy, very steady and it’s consistent. If a driver’s looking for work, they come to J.B. Hunt. Believe me, it pays out.”

Another perk about driving local, Ken says, is having an onsite manager.

“This is like a family atmosphere—she (Erin) makes sure I’m taken care of. You can talk face to face and fix things. If the manager can’t fix it, it will go to the next person, but it’s not going to go past two steps. It’s going to get taken care of.”

Ken also trains new drivers. He gives his trainees a bit of advice.

“Every job has its ups and downs, but for the most part with J.B., the ups and downs I have, it’s nothing you can’t get over.” Ken also encourages drivers coming in from regional or OTR to keep at it and keep safety their first priority. “You’ve got to keep your eyes constantly moving,” Ken said. “A lot of city drivers don’t understand what we do.”

“At J.B. Hunt, I found home time. This company has a very bright future and I love what I do,” said Ken.

Apr 04 2014

Think daily home time and weekends off are unattainable for a truck driver? Not with J.B. Hunt’s Final Mile Services (FMS).

Final Mile is different than a traditional truck driving job. Drivers are in a box truck, but it’s their destination that makes their job unique.

Final Mile drivers deliver and install appliances to homes and business. Because of this, they have a Monday – Friday schedule with some Saturday work. Final Mile drivers also boast top-notch customer service skills and are in good physical condition.

We have both CDL-A and B positions available, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Final Mile driver, call 1-877-776-5188 or pre-qualify here.

J.B. Hunt Truck Driving Career Path

J.B. Hunt Truck Driving Career Path

Jan 07 2014

Publication3At 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.

A career path is one of the many benefits of being a J.B. Hunt truck driver. No matter your season of life, you’re likely to find your fit at J.B. Hunt. Call 1- 877-791-9458 pre-qualify online now and start your career with us. You know never know where your path might lead.
