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.

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.”

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.”
