    The folks that like to say how much they hate JB Hunt and the other Mega Carriers turned out to be a blessing to me.

    When I first started out I needed to go to a company sponsored training program but no one would take me except for CR England, yes the most hated player on the entire internet.

    They were completely fair with me. I got my cdl, worked for them the agreed upon six months, and they paid for all my training. If it was not for the bad things you guys all say about them then they probably would have rejected me like all the other companies

    Same exact thing with JB Hunt. With only six months experience they gave me a dedicated route that I love and earn over a thousand dollars in gross pay each week. Sometimes even net. They are still short handed in my account and I know it has a lot to do with them being known as such an evil company. But that is why I got the job so easily.

    I wont knock any carrier I have never worked, I believe in the fact the company doesn't make the driver the driver makes the company. You have to start out somewhere and sometimes you may never leave. I have heard all the jokes about Jb, I have been insulted by drivers for who I work for. But in reality they can say all they want cause I don't care. I know what I am going through and they aren't going to change my opinions. Can I do better than where I am at probably, But almost 13 years at the same place and I have been treated great here why would I change..

    I have been at jb for about 2 months now and what I have gathered is they are like werner and the others the only thing that sets them apart is their commitment to safety and their pay, and their guaranteed hometime, most of the time I get home the day befor I request. as for pay I average right around 900 a week in my pocket after taxes, insurance, and 401k, but I also get along really well with my dispatcher. if you have worked for a big fleet you already know how jb is because they all work the same so I say pick the color truck you like and go work for them.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Don't worry about the Haters. They are just mad because JB wouldn't hire them.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    ok soooo ..... here's a short version of what was discussed between myself & a jb hunt recruiter through text ... he texted me asking if i was still interested in work - i reply yes but looking to stay in the western states preferably the i5 corridor or even the more local the better (i'm in stockton, ca) & that more money wasn't as important to me if it would be at the sacrifice of closer to home ... he replies that he has a perfect new account home daily that runs from tracy to reno 1200 weekly .... i reply i only have 3 weeks experience hauling grapes... he replies i'm sorry i need 3 months experience for that account, but ok i do have this that you qualify for, which is a delivery specialist in hayward (50 miles from me -no prob) loading appliances at warehouses & delivering them to customers home daily 10- 11 hour days 1350 avg weekly.
    so ..... what should i REALLY expect when i call him tomorrow for him to connect me to his "application specialist" ?

    Sounds like local work in a straight truck for FINAL MILE Service.
