    Fleet Manager Trainee Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    • Why should we choose you?   Answer Question
    • Open to moving around the country (moving around seems about the only way to move up in the business)?   Answer Question
    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).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by someone from the central office who found my resume in a resume book at my school's career office. I scheduled an interview, which turned out to not work for the manager so we rescheduled. The interview was very basic, mostly just going over my resume and asking me to expound on the points they could see. They also asked me what I knew about the company and why I wanted to work for them. They said they would be in contact but I followed up after a week and again after three weeks and they said they were still interviewing other candidates. Finally I just gave up and accepted that they had moved on and never let me know.

    Logistics Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application through their website and was contacted by a recruiter 2 weeks later who was REALLY selling the Northwest Arkansas area. She briefly reviewed my resume and told me a manager would contact me regarding another phone interview. 1 week later I was contacted by an engineering director who told me a lot about the different areas of engineering within the company and asked a little about my resume. A week after that I was invited for an on-site interview that lasted all day and consisted of interviewing about 45mins each with pairs of engineers that work there and about an hour lunch. The interviews included all levels of experience from new hires all the way to a Vice President. The interviewers were also from different business units and really focused on helping you decide which you would be interested in.

    They were very adamant about three things: love what you do, enjoy the people that you work with, and feel that you are making a positive difference. I can see how the process could be a bit tiring but during lunch they take around the different buildings and introduce you to the different engineering teams so you aren't sitting all day long. There is a technical interview but it's nothing ridiculous and they are more interested in your problem solving thought process than how much you remember from your college classes.
