    Applications Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Lowell, AR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and 24 days later I got my first phone call. For the first call, they asked a few questions such as "are you willing to do a drug screen?" "this is what the position entails, does that sound like something you'd like to do?" "Tell me a little about what you do now," etc. Then she scheduled a phone interview for me 2 days later, which involved similar questions. Then I was invited to an on-site interview 4 days after that. The process was overall very comfortable and inviting. I was in a big room with 2 interviewers who were both very kind and made it less intimidating. My interview was on a Thursday, and they called to offer the position the next Monday. It was a great experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Lowell, AR) in March 2018.

    Interview

    There are a total of three interviews. First is over the phone and only 20 minutes followed by a three person interview with managers and followed by an interview with three Directors of Intermodal. Then the process takes about two weeks to get feedback on. While I did not get an interview, I did find the process not too taxing and the managers and directors are quite nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Lowell, AR) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted via Skype. I joined the Skype meeting a few minutes early. The two interviewers joined a few minutes late.

    When the interview began I could see two men sitting behind a table with some notes in front of them and one laptop on the table. I was not actually viewing them from a camera on the laptop but from a camera on the far side of the room. This made the two interviewers appear far away which was a little off-putting.

    When the interview began, there were three things that transpired which raised my suspicions about how the rest of the interview was going to proceed. First was the interviews late arrival. They arrived about 7 or 8 minutes late. Not terribly late but enough to make you worry and fidget in your seat. Second was they way they set up their camera. Once I could see them on my computer screen, I was almost certain I had joined the wrong Skype meeting. Their camera was just too far away. I found myself leaning forward in my chair to get a better look at them. And last but not least was the way they had dressed for the interview. It was just too casual for me. For an interview, the least you can do in this situation is wear a buttoned down shirt.

    Ok, so that was three minor red flags. No big deal right? Well, things got worse pretty quick. The began asking me questions and i was happy to answer all of them. The big problem was while I giving my answers I noticed one interviewer kept rubbing his face with his hands to try to stay awake. And when he wasn't rubbing his face, he would have his arms crossed in a very defensive manner. As you can imagine, this made the interview feel a little uncomfortable. And to make matters even worse, neither of the interviewers would look at the camera. As an interviewee, I was gradually getting the feeling like I was wasting my time.

    The last straw was towards the end of the interview. I was about midway into answering one of their questions when I noticed one of the interviewers showing the other interviewer something on his computer screen. This lasted for several seconds and I came to the realization that even though I was talking, they just had very little interest in listening.

    By far the worst interview I have ever been on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Elizabeth, NJ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me for a phone interview. They asked typical managerial interview questions. Then scheduled an in-person interview with a few of the managers. The interview was very laid back. It did not feel like an interview more like having a conversation, assessing if you are a good fit for the job of managing 25+ people.

    Interview

    I had an amazing experience interviewing for J.B. Hunt. The questions were resume-related, and some of them were general questions. You should know yourself and you should know your experience really well. Do your research about the company. There was one technical question.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through college job posting site and was subsequently contacted by recruiter to schedule a quick screening call. Was asked to confirm that I was aware of the location of the job, base salary, benefits, etc.

    At the end of the screening call, I was asked to schedule a panel interview over Skype. This interview lasted around 45 minutes and was with 3 employees. The one coding question asked afterwards was verbal and more of a sanity check than anything.

    Received offer over the phone two days later.

    Managemet Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (College Station, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was for the "getting to know you process". Pretty laid back. Telling you what your options are and what area you see yourself in. Basic interview questions. The second interview came from a recruiter from an area that I was interested in and she seemed very uninterested in everything I had to say. The interview was supposed to take 30-45 min and it took less than 15. Didn't ask if I had questions or anything which I was told by the first interviewer to prepare for.
