A driver referral bonus is offered to active J.B. Hunt company and lease purchase drivers and independent contractors as an incentive to refer non-J.B. Hunt drivers as candidates for our truck driving jobs. The following criteria must be met in order for a referral bonus to be paid:

  • All referrals must be received and documented by driver personnel prior to the referred driver's hire or contract date.
  • The referring J.B. Hunt driver's hire or contract date must be at least seven days prior to the referred driver's hire or contract date.
  • The referring driver must be actively employed or contracted with J.B. Hunt at the time the referred driver is hired/contracted and takes dispatch.
  • The referred driver must be hired  into a company position or lease or contracted as an owner operator and take dispatch within 60 days of when the referral was received by driver personnel.
  • Referred drivers may be rehired/re-contracted as long as they have not worked with J.B. Hunt at any time during the 60 days preceding the date of rehire/re-contract.
  • J.B. Hunt drivers are eligible to be paid a referral bonus for drivers they have previously referred (and received a referral bonus) if the referred driver has not been actively employed or contracted with J.B. Hunt at any time during the 12 months preceding the referred driver's latest hire/contract date.
Once the criteria above are met, the referral bonus will be paid out within 2 weeks of the referred driver's dispatch date.
