People You Trust
No matter their pursuit, J.B. and Johnelle Hunt brought passion to the dreams they were chasing.
Even in the earliest days of J.B. Hunt, they dedicated everything they had to grow the company – not just for themselves but for the people depending on them, too. The spirit and energy that the Hunts brought to the company each day helped evolve it from a business that was established to find new uses for rice hulls into the Fortune 500 transportation company everyone knows today. Even after 60 years, we continue to build a company culture that reflects upon the spirit Mr. and Mrs. Hunt first instilled.
Our workplace culture has created a truly great place to work for so many – we have 33,000 employees, with 24,000 of those being drivers. These are the people you trust to drive our trucks and work hard to get freight right where it needs to be. Each of our employees brings experience, an individual spirit and a passion to their position and we welcome that individuality wholeheartedly.
We’re building more than a workforce at J.B. Hunt. We’re building a family.

Our Say-Do Culture
J.B. Hunt can call itself a say-do company because we honor our commitments to the people we work with and our employees alike. We hire and train people with their strengths in mind – committing to their growth, then building upon their strengths while making safety a high priority. We do this to create a strong workforce and cultivate an environment of empowerment.
J.B. Hunt drivers complete thousands of hours of training through hundreds of unique courses with safety at the forefront of it all. All our company drivers receive training and certifications specific to the industry they’ll be working in. This safety standard doesn’t just apply to our drivers though. Safety is a focus throughout each of our employees’ careers. We utilize tools and technologies company-wide that promote a culture of safety and accident prevention.
We also celebrate our drivers through our Million Mile Safe driving recognition and awards program. Our Million Mile program promotes an overall culture of safety among our employees by turning safety into a celebration!
More Than an Employer
J.B. Hunt invests in our employees and our culture to create even more opportunities for career growth and advancement. We are led from within, encouraging our employees to join employee resource groups that work to create an environment where each person can be their authentic self.

We make these investments in our culture because we want each of our employees and those interested in becoming an employee to feel like they have a place within our organization.
