DMiT Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in August 2013.
Interview Details – I was already employed with JB Hunt at corporate in Lowell, AR during college. The transition was a little easier for me. There were two interviews with Regional Operations Managers and then I was offered the position relatively quickly. They paid for me to move to Dallas and helped with the moving process.

Operations Supervisor Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in March 2014.
Interview Details – As stated in previous reviews, it's pretty much the same. HR from Lowell, AR contacts you and sets up a telephone interview, they're essentially the gatekeeper in the process. If they like what you have to say they pass you on to a hiring manager in the next 7-10 days for a physical interview. Interview with a hiring/regional manager and then it's up to you...Total time spent was about 3 weeks until I accepted an offer.
Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary, my interviewer was a seasoned regional manager and interviewer so it was fun, interesting and a rewarding experience. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very simple and direct; salary = "X" take it or not...
Fleet Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.B. Hunt in April 2014.
Interview Details – Went to a recruitment fair and talked to a regional recruitment manager. Received a request for a phone interview a two weeks later. Two weeks after that, I conducted a panel interview with two managers at their Chicago office.
Questions were easy and more focused toward personality fit and understanding of the demands of the position. Lots of “how do you manage people?” questions. I received a call 3 days after the interview with a tentative offer and received a formal offer 3 days later.
Pay is low - $48,000 with a 10% bonus if the company hits its marks. The work environment is also transportation focused. Expect night shifts, work on some holidays and 10 to 12 hour days. However, there seems to be a lot of growth and the company culture is very centered on employees starting at the bottom and rapid internal promotion if you're willing to put in the time.
Interview Question – How would you handle a driver who refuses to work, keeping in mind the trucking industry has a very high turnover rate with a lot of opportunities for drivers at other organizations? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Low pay with long hours with poor benefits.
