Hey everyone just a check in to say hey. Been really busy lately and have had no time to do anything but drive and sleep lol. I wanted to take the time to jump in and ask a question. I have a good job right now and the money is good. Only downfall is my home time. Missing my wife and kids. Im home on weekends which is cool but regardless still miss them. Now the question I have.

I got a call from a JB Hunt recruiter and just as an fyi I have not been actively looking for a new job. Anyway he calls and asks how everything is going blah blah blah. To make a long story short I was offered a local job. Home everyday work every other Saturday. Job only goes a radius of 125 miles from Grand Rapids. Do you think this recruiter is telling me the truth? Also the job is kind of a 3rd shift job. Start at 6pm and work 10-12 hours. Im so stuck on what to do.

Assuming you applied with JB Hunt at one point or used other online apps other than the ones here. I would call JB Hunt themselves and talk to a recruiter. Being cold called out of the blue to me raises a red flag. If you have not given a JB Hunt recruiter your number then it was gathered by a process called "Data Mining" which is a search to find names and numbers of those interested in something specific. Regardless of how he got your info it can still be a ligitemit offer and people get paid to bring in new people and that is how they add to their income.

I would call the company myself and ask about. I had the same thing happen to me and I was already woring for JB Hunt.
