The Information We Collect About You and How We Use It

If you are interested in an opportunity with J.B.

If you submit information through an online pre-qualification form but are not hired or contracted, J.B. Hunt will retain such information for four years after the end of the calendar year in which the information was submitted.  These records will be retained for our internal recordkeeping and reporting purposes.  During that time, we may use your information to consider you for positions in addition to the position(s) for which you initially expressed interest.

If you apply for employment by J.B.

While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you submit through the Site, and you do so at your own risk.  We urge you to use common sense when providing personal information online, particularly when using public or shared computers.
