    Logistics Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lowell, AR
    Anonymous Employee in Lowell, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at J.B. Hunt in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    At first they gave they basic summary of the position. Asked if you're willing to relocate and other questions such as strengths and weaknesses. There was another question regarding a driver that did not follow safety procedures and continued to ignore them. The answer to this question would involve a progressive discipline policy. First you would give them a warning and send them to safety training. If there is no improvement you would suspend them and if it still doesn't change you would have to fire them.

    • One of your driver's gets into an accident. How are you going to handle it.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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

    Anonymous Employee in West Orange, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in West Orange, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online – 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.
