    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Logistics Sales Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to recruiter I had already been in contact beforehand. Received email the next day setting up a phone interview. The phone interview was relatively straightforward. The HR recruiter reviewed my resume, asked me to explain my industry experience, and gave me an overview of the hiring process at JB Hunt. Proceeded to in person interview at branch office the following week. The interview lasted roughly an hour and was mostly one-on-one with the branch manager. We went over my resume and prior experience and gave me an overview of what to expect while working at JB Hunt. I then shadowed an employee for roughly 20 minutes to see what day-to-day tasks were expected of them. I was then left in the conference to simulate a call by one of the employees while the manager listened in. The simulation involved how I would cover a load that was due to be picked up in 30 minutes due to a driver emergency from the carrier that was previously on the load. The interview concluded after a final Q and A session. Did not hear back after the interview. Followed up with email but did not hear back from that either. The interview process itself was a positive experience but the fact that no one from JB Hunt has bothered to reach out or even reply to a simple email requesting the status of the application has turned the overall experience negative.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at J.B. Hunt (Fayetteville, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    HR people were easy to talk to and were sincerely trying to find a fit between my needs and goals and their corporate needs and strategy. Most of the interview(s) content revolved around my background and skills and the company's current and future direction. Much attention was given to my willingness to relocate (I was willing) and to my understanding that non-office hours may be required at times. They further wanted to know how I approached a difficult problem and also how I would manage working on a problem in a group context. Customer service and fulfilling customer needs were also foci points.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview

    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.

    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).
