    ATTENTION ATTENTION!!!!

    This is one of those evil JB hunt recruiters that likes to come out here and laugh on occasion. I havent been out here in awhile but I thought I would come out here and fill you all in on something.

    Recently our recruiting dept has been hired by outside companies. In otherwords we JB recruiters are now recruiting for many different companies. These are companies that dont compete with our company.

    The reason i tell you this is because I know a lot of you drivers like to hang up on us when we call. Just want to fill you in that the next time you hang up on us, you might be missing out on your dream job.
    Example: The job Im trying to fill now is a local tanker position that pays 70K per year. To let you know how good this one job is....I have put tons of ads out there and talked to at least 50 drivers...I have NOT YET talked to a driver who didnt beg me for that position. However, with good jobs comes pretty strict qualifications for that job...so its a little harder to find qualified drivers.
    Those who have had us remove you off our call lise, I guess you are SOL.

    Thanks for your attention....feel free to go back to your regular griping about every company out there.

    Yall have fun....and once again you can block me

    You just demonstrated why JB Hunt is not one of the favorite companies on this forum! You are unscrupulous as is your company!! There is a place reserved in Hades for your type of recruiters....:biggrin_25521::biggrin_25513:

    I have confirmed, via IP, that this post DID originate from actual JB Hunt headquarters. Now for my reply:

    IF ONLY: JB Hunt would take the same time as they did here (to post smart-aleck comments) to treat ONE driver right
    IF ONLY: JB Hunt KEPT drivers happy so as not to have to have 24hr manned recruitment lines
    IF ONLY: JB Hunt would send that poor driver wasting away this weekend, far from home, home OR pay that poor driver (instead of their recruiters to come here)
    IF ONLY: JB Hunt would get their heads out of their butts and LISTEN to drivers, we wouldn't be here right now

    JB Hunt, I absolutely despise you and your cronies. You are the worst of the worst. I started this site because of JB Hunt as a matter of fact. I guarantee you, we have STOPPED thousands of drivers from going through the pure hell that IS JB Hunt...for that, yes...I am proud. The time you spent coming in here could have been better spent if JB Hunt paid you to keep drivers happy and get them home on the weekends OR pay them for their time...which JB Hunt does NOT. So, another 5,000 drivers (or more) sit in parking lots this weekend, for no pay, and waste away...while here you are posting smart-aleck comments...SAD!

    Now, I CHALLENGE JB Hunt:

    Are you ready to change and listen to drivers? SHOW us here!
    I will leave you here and block you from PM's and E-mails (so you don't recruit) IF you are willing to make some changes at JB Hunt, and PROVE it to the trucking world
    Are you willing to WORK with drivers here and take in the issues and resolve them and become a GOOD company?


    Now, put up or shut up, JB Hunt...you have messed with the wrong people to be sure. We WILL be hard on you here...you KNOW you deserve it...but, maybe you can actually get our support by changing to "keep" your drivers happy (of course we all know some truckers will never be happy, but you know ###### well hundreds of THOUSANDS simply cannot be wrong about JB Hunt). What say you, Mr Smart-Aleck?

    so basically, you recruit for other companies, and by hanging up on you, we might miss out on our dream job with another company....

    sounds like youre not getting enough people to work at j.b. so your own company outsourced you to make back some of the loss theyre taking on your salary....

    LostBoy, EXACTLY. I have now called JB Hunt out, man to corporate beast, let's see what they do now. Let's just say...I set out to make JB Hunt famous (and have succeeded) now we'll try to make them GOOD...IF they have the balls. They wouldn't post in here IF they didn't feel us as a threat, its simple. I'll work EVERY day of my life to make you change, JB Hunt...I work FOR the truckers and their families, period! You have either started a PR nightmare for JB Hunt right here...OR you'll be FORCED to change.

    Well, while we have their attention, let them chew on this.

    One of the biggest complaints about JB Hunt on this site is the old bait-and-switch, of which I was almost a victim.

    About 5 years ago I was hauling asphalt shingles up to the New York area every day, which didn't pay much at all. I looked into JB Hunt, not knowing any better at the time, and was offered a dedicated position with their Rite-Aid account.

    I gave notice with the flatbed company, and was all set to go to orientation in East Brunswick, NJ. The day before I was supposed to go I get a call saying that the dedicated position I was offered was filled all of a sudden. I was then offered OTR, to which I replied with a profound "NO THANKS".

    What a waste of time that was, and I thought this was an isolated incident until I found this website, and seen I was far from alone.

    JB Hunt can go to hell, along with any and all recruiters on their payroll, like this arrogant schmuck. I haul LTL freight, make a very good living doing it, and there is no amount of BS any recruiter, especially one working for the likes of JB Hunt, could shovel my way to make me even think about giving up my $24 an hour job.

    Something is definately going on with JB Hunt. All their fleet managers are moving around and changing positions. And otr is pretty much getting no miles. Ive been told by other JB drivers, of which Im still one otr :biggrin_2553:, that JB is trying to change mainly to a dedicated and intermodal company. They will still have to maintain some otr but they are definately changing.

    Mr. Buddy, you say I'm SOL because I won't let you pester me, yet here you are begging me to allow you to pester me. If this job were so good, you know it wouldn't be advertised. You would never need to come here and push it. Hell, YOU'D be doing it if it were really that good.

    I'm still looking for that NASA janitor's job. I know that job is good, and it's worth having. It's not advertised, and no one begs me using a slick sales pitch to drop what I'm doing, to become a job hopper, so I can go do it.

    You've "not been out here in a while". I guess way, way back yesterday morning was the last time?

    I smell blood at JBH. That ship is listing and may be sinking.

    While others on this site may make fun of you...I WILL NOT!
    I commend you for the job you have. I mean i don't know how you do it ?
    i mean how do you convince someone to drive a piece of #### and work for a pile of ####?? with your stress level i bet you eat more Zanex than your drivers eat No-Doze. I don't know what your quota is per month but if it's more than 3 your under way to much pressure. but hey....if it gets to be to much you could just give that 70k per year tanker job to yourself !!

    Papa T, Jeff778 and LostOne9 Thank this.
