Does J.B. Hunt hire CDL-A students?

Currently, we do not hire student truck drivers. We require at least 3 months of post-training CDL-A driving experience for jobs in our Truckload, Dedicated and Intermodal divisions. In-school experience does not count towards the 3-month requirement.

How much experience do I need after I get my CDL-A?

We require at least 3 months of post-training CDL-A driving experience for jobs in our Truckload, Dedicated and Intermodal divisions.

While we do not have CDL-A jobs for inexperienced drivers, we have Final Mile driving jobs open in select locations that do not require a CDL or commercial driving experience. Final Mile delivery driving jobs involve making deliveries driving box trucks so a CDL is not required. Interested in learning more about our Final Mile division? Give us a call at 1-877-776-5188.
