I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Hub Group.
Interview Details – HR phone screening. Invite to interview. Interview. Phone call. Offer letter.
Interview Question – Pretty standard textbook questions. During my interview I just kept talking about my leadership experience. I worked at a rail facility prior so I had some very limited transportation knowledge. Just google some transportation jargon, any sort of expressed interest in transportation will make you stand out. Answer Question
Interviewed at Hub Group
Interview Details – Hiring process was very laid back. I had an initial phone interview and then they called me a few days later to do a face to face interview which took about 25 minutes. I received a call a week later to say I received the internship.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected just be personable Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Hub Group in October 2013.
Interview Details – First you will meet with Regional Manager and Intermodal Manager, they will ask you about your logistics experience, and what you do at your former/current job to see if you have the necessary skills to be successful at Hub Group, examples: Attention to detail, time management, multitasking, and handling service failures. Then the VP of the office will come in and basically pitch you on why you should work at Hub Group because you have been deemed a good fit. If they VP comes in during your interview its a good sign because otherwise he will not waste his time.
Interview Question – How would you handle a service failure that was not your fault? View Answer
Negotiation Details – After the initial interview it took a month before they called me to offer the job, I found out while working there that it takes a long time for them to get new position approved by Executive Management.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hub Group in June 2012.
Interview Details – I applied for this position online and they actually did get back to me pretty quickly for a phone interview. That unfortunately, was the high point. The phone interview took 10 minutes and overall was very easy. What should have been a red flag for me is that they could not figure out what the job title was that I was applying for. The website said that I was applying for a marketing specialist position. The confirmation e-mail said that I was applying for a marketing analyst position and then the HR associate who called me told me I was applying for the marketing support analyst position. I got an interview for that Tuesday and the time that we agreed on was 10 AM. I then get that confirmation e-mail saying the interview was at 2 PM. The day of the interview comes up and around 11 AM, I get a phone call from the same HR associate saying that the interview has to be rescheduled due to staff meetings. I said that I was fine with that and we rescheduled it for that Friday. I did try to contact the HR associate because I had some questions about the paperwork, but found it impossible to get in contact with her as she never answered the phone or return my messages. Apparently, she gets in contact with you and not the other way around. The interview day comes and I do end up getting to go. I did arrive two minutes late due to getting lost in the building but one of the managers assured me that it was fine and that it happened a lot. I guess it was casual Friday because I was by far the best dressed person there with my suit. I go into a conference room with the director and senior marketing manager. Throughout the whole interview, I felt like my candidacy was never taken seriously. I definitely felt like a filler candidate as both the interviewers were too busy looking at their Blackberry phones rather than listening to what I was saying. The one interviewer was asking irrelevant questions based on the position ("Why is a manhole cover round instead of square? and "If you were a car, which one would you be and why?") The interview only took 40 minutes and when it was over, they said that I would be contacted if there was to be a second interview. I knew that I would never be contacted and thanked them for their time. At least I didn't get lost on my way out.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Hub Group in June 2010.
Interview Details – one on one interview which went into very detailed description of the position and asked general behavioral questions
