The Best Driving Jobs for Military Veterans

Hiring Veterans is a company-wide effort at J.B. Hunt, and we are dedicated to hiring 10,000 Veterans by 2020. We value your character and what you bring to the transportation industry - hard work, sense of duty, intelligence, leadership and teamwork.

The Hunt’s Heroes program and J. B. Hunt’s Department of Labor National Apprenticeship:
Through our distinguished Hunt's Heroes hiring program and J. B. Hunt’s National Apprenticeship, we hire and train those transitioning soldiers and Veterans who have selflessly served to ensure our nation’s freedom and safety.

By participating in our 12-month J. B. Hunt National Apprenticeship Program, you may qualify for G.I. Bill Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payments from the VA - an educational benefit paid to you in addition to your paycheck. We will assist you in filling out and submitting the required documents to the VA for approval.

Our CDL A Program caters to Veterans across all military positions who are interested in pursuing professional driving as their civilian career, while our Military Finisher Program is designed for those who have experience driving heavy equipment during their service time.

To join our ranks or to learn more about our Veteran driving jobs, call 1-800-207-6097 or prequalify online.

  • Veterans will complete orientation and will begin either a CDL-A Program or Military Finisher Program.
  • Depending on your military discharge date, you'll spend either 80 or 160 hours at one of our approved driving schools.
  • We will also pay you a wage while you attend driving school, making our program the first to offer Veterans a stable income and living wage during their schooling.
  • You’ll be placed in the driver’s seat of one of our local (home daily) or regional (home weekly) Dedicated Contract Services or Intermodal business unit positions. 
  • Through our 12-month J. B. Hunt National Apprenticeship Program, you may be eligible to receive a GI Bill Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payment from the VA in addition to your paycheck. Although the MHA payment varies by location, our participants currently receive an average of $1,539 a month.
For ten consecutive years, we have ranked in G.I. Jobs' Top 100 Military Friendly Employers List. J.B. Hunt supports both active duty and retired Veterans in our driving force. We offer extended benefits for Veterans called to active duty, including MHA, differential pay and optional leave time.
