    I'm considering checking them out; I'm tired of working a dock every night.

    I know they don't have a good past reputation..
    How are they now?

    Pay?
    Good miles?
    Hometime Policy?
    Orientation?

    Etc..

    The whole scoop and nothing but the whole scoop.. Anyone?

    Good luck with that depends on what you do with them, their dcs are the best but still got 10 drivers quit in a week.

    Ouch! That's a lot. My current driving job has a turnover of hardly any at all. I make good money but I'd rather not work the dock so much. I do LTL linehaul.

    Well jb hunt has been great to me and many others i know in most northeast accounts..I dont know much about there otr operation but I can tell you dcs and intermodel are excellent jobs. As far as turnover well at my 1 location we have 140 drivers and turnover about 10 drivers a year but I still see the same drivers everyday that are still here with me from day 1 3 years ago when they got account. We do alot of nyc and tough docks so newbies sometimes top a trailer and get fired or just dont like it and quit. When your talking about the largest trucking company only behind ups and fed ex then 10 drivers leaving dcs is hardly an issue. Anyways Ive been with jb 4 years and never had an issue and work between 40-50 hours a week and make between 11-1500. Theres practically unlimited work and great earning potential. Home everyday with 2 days off. Benefits are excellent and very cheap. 401K is great and have good investment options within. Guys that are using up there 70 by choice are making north of 75k a year. Never had big brother corporate bother me. If you do your job nobody bothers you. You go out and do your thing and if u have an issue or question you just call. They have cascadias and prostars and maintain there trucks well. I dont like the prostars cuz they use maxxforce engines and alot of issues with them. I get 2 weeks paid vacation at my average hourly rate for 52 weeks which is calculated by total earnings divided by total hours worked. My 52 week avg. hourly rate is currently $29.56 an hour x 8 hours per vaction day equals $236.48 per vaction day. To be honest the job is sweet! I heard bad things about otr on ttr so maybe not jbs strong suit. But if u get dedicated or intermodel local or regional than your in a good spot. This is all current 4 years of perapective. Not from 1992 or from my cousin who worked there 20 years ago lol.. These accounts I know from first hand are good to work for: toys r us flanders nj c&s chester newburgh ny w locks ct bethlehem pa springfield ma and vermont, intermodel in harrisburg pa. Home depot pittston pa. and the other location in pa near harrisburg area. Sealy mattress idk but heard its tough but pays good. Thats all I got...hope this is some help to ya. Best of luck to ya

    That account runs NJ,NY, and PA. I think annual is 52,000 but you can always make more. Pay is .38 cpm but the drop n hook pay is 35. 3 out of 4 weekends home if you live near Tannersville or Taylor PA.
