    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hub Group (Oak Brook, IL).

    Interview

    Quick turn around from the online application. After that it took weeks for an in person interview and over a month to set up a final interview. Don't expect to hear back unless you have the job or their 1st choice falls through. Very nice, polite, but exceptionally disorganized group.

    Highway Solutions Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hub Group (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    I applied and it took them a little over a month to respond asking for an interview. I came in on a Friday and interviewed with a panel that included the director of highway solutions, senior director of logistics operations, and the team leader. This lasted about 45 minutes. Very typical questions like why I was interested, what I knew about the company, and previous experience questions. After I interviewed with this group right after, I also interviewed with the senior director of highway solutions 1 on 1. Again, not a hard interview. He questioned my education and how I felt it would help me on the job, typical interview questions. my first interview was on a Friday, that next Monday I was contacted about a 2nd interview over the phone, here I was asked questions that went into more detail and whether or not my skills was a match. The interviewer afterward critiqued my interview and told me he would recommend me for a job offer. From the 1st interview to the job offer it took about 8 days, however, again it took them a month from the point of applying to the first interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Very typical questions. "How did you hear about the company" "what interests you about the industry" "tell me about your self" "How will your ______ experience help you in this field"   Answer Question

Just google some transportation jargon, any sort of expressed interest in transportation will make you stand out.   Answer Question

    Pricing Analyst Inter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    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.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Downers Grove, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hub Group (Downers Grove, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    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.
