    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Lowell, AR).

    Interview

    Weird interview. I felt like they were trying to sell me on the job instead of having to sell myself to them. Two managers sit across from you in a conference room and tag team with questions. As stated, not many questions for me, more them trying to get me to see what a great company J. B. is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Fayetteville, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    HR people were easy to talk to and were sincerely trying to find a fit between my needs and goals and their corporate needs and strategy. Most of the interview(s) content revolved around my background and skills and the company's current and future direction. Much attention was given to my willingness to relocate (I was willing) and to my understanding that non-office hours may be required at times.
    They further wanted to know how I approached a difficult problem and also how I would manage working on a problem in a group context. Customer service and fulfilling customer needs were also foci points.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview

    It was a campus interview process. Met with two Fleet Managers. They described the job, required hours, how well the industry and JB Hunt has done/are doing. The interviewers were both friendly and there wasn't any pressure at all. There was not much to the interview process before, during, or after the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    After the interview, they said that they would fly me out to their office, but sent an offer email only a few days later (JB Hunt did this to others on my campus). I originally accepted the job (good pay and benefits) but turned it down after seeing the facility and thinking more about the required hours (3pm-1am).
