    You would THINK that considering the state of our industry, our nation, economy, problems world-wide 2 wars, on and on and on - we would look out for each other. We are brothers and sisters in arms RIGHT? Lets look out for each other.

    :whax:I got a call yesterday on my cell from a J.B. Hunt recruiter and being in a ill mood, I wanted to have a little fun. First of all I was impressed by this person, he could talk people into the grave before they bought the plot.
    First he told me on how special I was as a professional driver, a point that I never gave myself credit for or wanted attention from others. He went on to tell me that JB had two accounts, drop and hook and the money that the drivers were making each week and a promise (?), that I would get two days off for ever 7 worked. Some of his drivers would work for a month then take of 8 days. But if I was happy with my current employer's pay and home time he would understand, a dead give away on his part.
    He went on to tell me that there are abount 12,000 drivers who lost there jobs because of companies that folded and now are looking for work.
    I said with 12,000 out of work drivers and they are not busting down the doors of JB to get a job, and I was the only one that got your call?
    I told him to give me a break and the 12,000 drivers who lost thier jobs have good common sense than to go with your company, do you think I was born yesterday? Hvae a good day then hung up.

    BS!!! You have been spouting that stuff on here before and you know you are full of it--you were full of it before and you still are. I know at least 2 recruiters at JB Hunt and they have told me that JB is not paying anyone the type of salaries that you are talking about. Facts are that JB Hunt pays their recruiters one of the lowest salaries in the entire industry. If you dont beleive that then look it up. If you really recruit for JB, then you know that JB pays only $300 per recruit as the commisssion, and that is providing that he/she stays 90 days, if they dont it is only $50 per recruit.The average recruiter at JB is paid in the neighborhood of $60,000 per year. If you dont beleive this then look into it, I know I did.
    If you honestly beleive that recruiters in this industry are getting paid $19,000 ever 2 weeks then I have a bridge in ALaska to sell you. That is almost as laughable as Swift trying to tell everyone that their top company driver(who BTW, was not a trainer) made $100,000 last year. And they wonder why all us drivers think that the company will say anything, do anything, or be anything untill it comes right down to it--then the facts say that they are really nothing but a bunch of liars. And JB Hunt reigns as the "King Supreme" in this matter, and if you are truly a recruiter there then you know this. But see it is against JB Company policy to be on this board (or any other message board) while on their clock and if you want I can hook you up with either Wayne, Craig or Kurt and let them review the rules with you if you want. Or I can send you an employees handbook, in case you lost yours. You have been "outed" so get over it.

    I have no reason to lie to you, I dont work for JB anymore, nor do I recruit anymore. Yes, most of the time for OTR drivers the commission is 300 bucks. However, there are times when commissions are higher. There are certain times of year when the commissions were 1000 bucks a driver. Also when I was there owner operators paid $1000 bucks. Add that to the 30K a year salary and it adds up. Do you own math, If commissions are 300 a driver, and the average recruiter hires 3 drivers a week, plus the 30K a year salary. Thats, 76,800 a year. I didnt say that all recruiters were paid 19000 every two weeks. I said the highest paycheck I have ever saw a recruiter get was 19K for two weeks. You really should work on your reading comprehension skills. Although I dont work there anymore, I would say the 60K a year average is about right for recruiters there now. There are still quite a few there that make 6 figures. I was there for over 7 years and always made well over 60K.
    As far as a driver having to be there 90 days before the recruiter gets paid, you couldnt be more wrong. That policy has never been in place.

    Oh no, you are going to introduce me to Craig? I tell you what. You "tell on me" to Craig. Friday night when Im sitting beside him at the Shiloh Christian Football game, we will both get a good laugh about this.

    I do not see any useful purpose in this thread being open any longer.

    It has long ago outlived its usefulness.
    mrjuggalo9er, BillJ72 and Cybergal Thank this.
