    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Greenville, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I talked with a recruiter one on one at a career fair and handed him a resume for review. About 2 weeks later I received an email asking if I could come in for an interview for a manager trainee position the next week.

    Interview was at a Final Mile Facility, in the warehouse break room. Very spartan setting, low pressure environment.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to recruiter I had already been in contact beforehand. Received email the next day setting up a phone interview. The phone interview was relatively straightforward. The HR recruiter reviewed my resume, asked me to explain my industry experience, and gave me an overview of the hiring process at JB Hunt.

    Proceeded to in person interview at branch office the following week. The interview lasted roughly an hour and was mostly one-on-one with the branch manager. We went over my resume and prior experience and gave me an overview of what to expect while working at JB Hunt. I then shadowed an employee for roughly 20 minutes to see what day-to-day tasks were expected of them. I was then left in the conference to simulate a call by one of the employees while the manager listened in. The simulation involved how I would cover a load that was due to be picked up in 30 minutes due to a driver emergency from the carrier that was previously on the load. The interview concluded after a final Q and A session.

    Did not hear back after the interview. Followed up with email but did not hear back from that either. The interview process itself was a positive experience but the fact that no one from JB Hunt has bothered to reach out or even reply to a simple email requesting the status of the application has turned the overall experience negative.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone from the central office who found my resume in a resume book at my school's career office. I scheduled an interview, which turned out to not work for the manager so we rescheduled. The interview was very basic, mostly just going over my resume and asking me to expound on the points they could see. They also asked me what I knew about the company and why I wanted to work for them. They said they would be in contact but I followed up after a week and again after three weeks and they said they were still interviewing other candidates. Finally I just gave up and accepted that they had moved on and never let me know.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at J.B. Hunt in September 2014.

    Interview

    There are multiple people interviewing you at the same time, but overall wasn't too hard. Very easygoing people and they try to make it as comfortable as possible while interviewing. Two people are kind of just watching you and noticing how you say certain things while another two will lead the whole interviewing process.

    Interview

    I applied for this position on two separate occasions. The interview begins with a phone interview. I passed the first phone interview and was invited to do a face to face panel interview. The panel interview was fine and not really intimidating even though there were about 10 people in the room of which only 2 were there to actually fill positions. The others were people who was just sitting in on the interview. In my opinion, the interview went well, but for some odd reason I was not notified about weather or not I got the position. I had to reach out to the hiring managers to see what was the status of the interview. One lady emailed me back 3 weeks later telling me that the interviewer said I was a great fit for the company but they basically chose someone else. Later on when the position became available again, I reapplied. I was emailed saying I have a phone interview on a specific day and time. On the day of the interview, the lady who was not doing the interview called me saying "oh.... well... we are going to have to reschedule your interview. there is a conflicting meeting that your interviewer has to attend. We will call you back to reschedule your interview." In my opinion, the lady who called me sounded like she made up something really quick to get me off the list. Never the less... They did not call me back to reschedule my phone interview. I reached out to them again to see what the status was of the phone interview. This time, I did not get a response. These two HR people have no tack about themselves, no common courtesy, and lack professionalism. If there was a problem, or mistake, or what ever the case may have been, its best to do things professionally. Instead, these two individuals set the tone for my opinion for the entire company...... Unprofessional. Don't get me wrong, the people who I interviewed with face to face were all wonderful. J. B. Hunt gets a big Thumbs down from me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Chantilly, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Saw an ad on Craigslist for Appliance Installation Specialist, submitted resume to the email address and was contacted a couple of days after with a form to fill out online, submitted the form and did a preliminary phone interview.

    Job is Appliance Installation Specialist with Final Mile Services, a division of J.B. Hunt. First phone interview was with the staffing agency, after that she put me through to an HR rep with J.B. Hunt who conducts a second interview along with a few questions, after that she scheduled a 1 on 1 interview at the local office.

    Interview was fairly simple, a "few what if" questions, or "how would you handle" type. They go over the position and training in detail, offer to answer any questions you may have.

    They had more people to interview so there was no decision made that day, although the interviewer was very pleased with my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Spanaway, WA).

    Interview

    Applied to job online. Randomly received a call during the day about three weeks later asking if I wanted to interview. I said yes, and was immediately transferred over the phone to do a lengthy and rigorous background check. Warning: this will take 30-45 minutes, which they didn't mention to me. I felt uncomfortable giving them my social security number, drivers license, and a bunch of other personal information in such an impromptu manner over the phone, but whatever.

    I went and interviewed for the job. They barely asked me any questions - I had to bring a copy of my resume since they had not seen it. They basically read my resume while I sat there, and I felt like they wouldn't have brought me in to interview if they read it ahead of time. After he mentioned what the job duties were and what the salary was, and I explained what my current job was, I think we were mutually embarrassed that I was there interviewing. The salary that they advertised for the job was way higher than what they told me face to face. The the entire process was a complete waste of everyone's time.
