For J.B. Hunt driver Marcus, the Transfer Portal at J.B. Hunt made it easy for him to make the career changes he was looking for and move to North Carolina.
“I personally went from a driver up in Richmond, Virginia, transferred down here a year into my career,” he said. “And about a year after being here, I got certified as a driver trainer.”
Becoming a certified driver trainer is one of many career progression paths our drivers can take. For Marcus, talking to his manager about further career growth brought him even more opportunity.
“He showed me the DMIT position. The DMIT position, it’s the roadway to being a manager,” he said. “So going from just a regular driver to the driver trainer, up to the manager, it’s a journey, but it’s definitely possible.”
From the Driver’s Seat to the Office Chair
Our drivers’ opportunities here at J.B. Hunt are as limitless as their interests. Two examples are Quincy, a former Final Mile Services® driver, and Tim, a former Dedicated Contract Services® driver and driver trainer, are now both in office positions.

Tim, a director of corporate safety, says, “I realized early on that the people at J.B. Hunt cared about their drivers and managers and were invested in their future.
