    I saw an ad from JB Hunt advertising for an OTR position. At least I assume its OTR. I know from reading the forums that this company is very diverse in its business and your success and failure at this company depends on the account you are on. I would like some advice from former and current drivers on whether I'm wasting my time, or if this is a good opportunity. Below i'll post the position details as I got them from the career placement guy from Lowell, AR. Orientation will be in Memphis, TN. I was told I'd be delivering to DCs mainly doing retail.

    Do NOT sign up for OTR under any circumstances!! I am a current driver on a dedicated account and have done jb hunt's version of otr and it is horrible. DCS and intermodal are the 2 segments that provide good wages with intermodal being the best.

    I agree with dgarricksr. The was once a place for the OTR driver with JB but day has long passed. The OTR drivers I have come across are usually picking up the freight the Intermodal can't cover or there isn't OTR freight at the moment. And trust me, there is no more of a miserable creature than seeing an OTR driver in the rail yard. I am not knocking them and I honestly feel for them. To be thrust into a rail yard, not having idea where to go or what to do, I'd be miserable too.

    If DCS or Intermodal is something you don't want to do, depending on your area, there might be a Regional option for you. You should ask about that.

    You can make that at McD's. You definitely deserve and are worth more than that!
