Carrier Sales Coordinator Interview

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

Interview Details – If your resume is appealing, you will receive an e-mail fairly quickly from HR wanting to set up a phone interview. If you do well on the phone interview, an in-person interview will follow. The in-person interview was a panel of 5 hiring managers from different departments. They each had several expected questions, and all had one or more difficult questions.

Interview Question – "How will you lose money for J.B. Hunt?"   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Logistics Engineer I Interview

Logistics Engineer I
Lowell, AR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in January 2014.

Interview Details – I first had a phone interview that was 20-30 minutes and questions regarding my resume and past experience were asked. I was flown to the headquarters a month or so later. The interview was long, 8am-4pm. Many different people interviewed me, mostly in teams of two. Questions were mostly behavioral, but there was a technical component to the interview. There was a lunch break in the middle of the day, but my voice was hoarse after the interview because I talked all day. Bring a bottle of water with you!
After two weeks, I contacted them to followup but they never returned my call and I never heard back from them after the interview. It seemed very unprofessional and left me with a bad impression.

Interview Question – One of the technical questions was to formulate a linear program   Answer Question

Carrier Sales Coordinator Interview

Carrier Sales Coordinator

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

Interview Details – Applied online, had a brief phone interview and was asked to come in for a face to face with a couple of the managers. The campus is extremely laid back and you will stand out during the interview process. All the employees and managers were very welcoming. After the interview I sat in with one of the reps and had the opportunity to shadow and see exactly what the job would require. I didn't receive and offer due to a more qualified candidate.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary if you show up prepared.   Answer Question

Manager Trainee for DCS Interview

Manager Trainee for DCS
Detroit, MI

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online about a month ago. Initial contact was a phone call from a recruiter. She asked me a few questions and explained the "Final Mile" & "DCS" positions to me. One major requirement is being able to relocate after the training. The recruiter explained that the relocation area is the Midwest area and that they do provide relocation assistants. An over the phone interview was then setup a few days later and she asked basic questions for the logistics/supply chain career field. The recruiter told me to expecting a call next week for a face 2 face interview.

Update:
I interviewed with this company/position over a month ago and I still have not received a call back from the recruiter. I have email her and everything but still no call back. So done with this company!!

ICS Interview

ICS
West Orange, NJ

I applied online and interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

Interview Details – Thought interview went well, spoke about my college ALOT and then manager asked me continuously about getting my professor's contact info so they could partner with them. When I didn't respond right away regarding that info, one of the employees called my home at 6pm on a Saturday and ask me to come in and shadow some employees. When I came in to shadow, I was asked again for professor contact info, I still had not released info yet. Once I got home, I finally sent professor info to manager. Seems I was kind of taken advantage of since it seems as though they were schmoozing me until I gave them info because the next day I got an email stating that I wasn't a good fit for the role. Just shows me that company is deceitful and probably happy that I am not working for a company like that.

Interview Question – No question was too difficult   Answer Question

RISE Leadership and Sales Interview

RISE Leadership and Sales
Lowell, AR

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview to gauge your interest and go through your resume, then an in depth phone interview in a couple of days later. Be prepared because they ask a lot of questions. If they like you, then you will receive a negotiation test. You will be expected to show off your negotiation skills with one of their employees, be prepared to leverage.

They will fly you out to corporate HQ, let you have dinner with their employees and a series of tests and interviews on the following day. It will be a corporate tour, job shadow, then interview with two of the managers that work there. After that there will be a sales test, which you are provided a scenario where you need to sell an internet package/service to a branch manager. Lastly, you are invited to go for lunch with the VPs, there you will be tested on your management capabilities.

Interview Question – The practice management scenario with the VP consists of lowering the operation ratio from 110 to 95, which involves saving $40,000. This can only be done by modifying the salaries and bonuses paid.   View Answer

RISE Program Interview

RISE Program

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

Interview Details – Started with an initial standard phone interview with competency based questions etc. Followed through to a "test sales call", and finally flown out to HQ for final interview. Very detailed hiring process, and very quick with call backs. Didn't get final offer, but decent company and offer high growth potential. Long hours and minimal time off is expected. Be prepared to live in Arkansas for 18 months before being transferred. They look for people willing to be mobile.

Dedicated Manager In Training Interview

Dedicated Manager In Training

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in November 2012.

Interview Details – It is composed of several interviews some onsite in a trailer or in an office setting. When you come out of college, you do not think that your job would be literally working elbow to elbow in a small dingy hot trailer. Yes it is the transportation industry but, I have seen better with smaller trucking companies. The interviewers are very informal,unprepared, and unaware of what was going on.

Interview Question – So where do you live?   View Answer
