Plus, I’ve got the freedom to schedule my daily tasks as I see fit. I’ve been in the mobile mechanic position for 7 years now, and I won’t go back to the shop!” Ricky, Columbus, OH  

 “I work on customer sites and really enjoy visiting different accounts, meeting fleet managers, and learning more about how the business runs. I’ve worked in this position for a year, but have been with J.B. Hunt for 6 years total. As a people person, this has been my favorite position.” Gilberto, Dallas, TX  

 “Mobile mechanics get to work on tractors, trailers, containers, chassis, and lots of other equipment, so there are lots of opportunities to grow your skill set and advance. I enjoy trouble-shooting, and every day is something different.” Jose, South Gate, CA
