J.B. Hunt’s Mission: Employ 10,000 Veterans by 2020
Hiring military Veterans is a company-wide effort at J.B. Hunt, and we are dedicated to employing 10,000 Veterans by 2020. We value your character and what you bring to the transportation industry – hard work, devotion, intelligence, leadership and aptitude.
Under our Hunt’s Heroes division and as a Department of Labor Apprenticeship Program provider, we offer a number of hiring and mentoring programs that employ Veterans and transitioning soldiers, as well as military spouses.
Our most well-known programs fall under our J. B. Hunt National Apprenticeship Program – the Hunt’s Heroes CDL-A Hiring Program and Military Finisher Program. The first caters to Veterans of any MOS who are interested in pursuing professional driving as their civilian career, while the latter is a fast track program for those who have experience driving heavy equipment during their service time.
Through the CDL-A and Military Finisher programs, Veterans are paid a stable income while they complete orientation, driving school, and behind-the-wheel training. They assume their responsibilities at either a local (home daily) or regional (home weekly) Dedicated Contract Services or Intermodal fleet. As a participant in our 12-month J. B. Hunt National Apprenticeship Program, one may also be eligible to receive a GI Bill Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payment from the VA in addition to his or her paycheck.
Our Military Spouse Hiring Program is designed to hire a Hunt’s Heroes professional driver’s spouse OR an active duty military spouse. The program involves a normal interviewing process and allows the spouse to work from home, base or any convenient location.
Lastly, J.B. Hunt offers a Maintenance Hiring Program where Veterans are trained under a certified professional trainer. They will receive on-the-job instruction and training, certification and full-time employment.
J.B. Hunt is proud to offer an array of career opportunities to Veterans, transitioning soldiers and their spouses. Learn more about joining our ranks by calling 1-800-207-6097 or view our jobs for Veterans online.
