    Fairly laid back. Look for young college graduates/military experience. Interview with a manager that you will eventually report to. No difficult questions, just want to make sure you will be willing to work whenever, for as long as they need you to.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Fayetteville, AR) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Thursday: Received an email saying they were interested based off my resume. I had to answer a few questions that would help direct the first phone interview, including best times to have someone call. Monday: Had phone interview in the morning with HR recruit, even though email said I would be available in the afternoon. Did the interview and killed it. Was scheduled for next phone interview with the HR Corporate recruit manage for the following week since the person was out of town. Next week Tuesday: Had 2nd phone interview with HR Corporate Recruit Manager. Went well, very interesting questions. I felt like I did a lot of talking though. Was told that I'd hear back the following Thursday or Friday with a phone call or email in regards to the next step in the process. Following Thursday/Friday: Nothing. Weekend passes. Monday: Received email saying I was no longer being considered for position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Greenville, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I talked with a recruiter one on one at a career fair and handed him a resume for review. About 2 weeks later I received an email asking if I could come in for an interview for a manager trainee position the next week. Interview was at a Final Mile Facility, in the warehouse break room. Very spartan setting, low pressure environment.

    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.
