    Applications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lowell, AR

    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.

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    It was good back when I started. Trainers were good and management was good. But started to go downhill once people started getting tired of the crap and leaving. Every place has ups and downs but when you have to deal with high school crap just to have a job it is not worth it if u can move on to better with a lot less stress and drama.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website. Had a phone interview with an HR person from Arkansas. I did not feel very confident on how my interview went, so I figured I did not get the internship. 3 months later, I received an email that said they decided to go with someone else.

    Operations Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tracy, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Tracy, CA).

    Interview

    Applied after a going to their college presentation. The process took a week. Had a phone interview that lasted 30 minutes, then had an in person one set up at the end of my phone interview. The in-person interview was with the Regional Operations Manager. It was a very laid back, casual interview. After that, I had an on-site interview set up. They were very quick with the scheduling of every interview. The on-site interview was one where I was supposed to ask as many questions as I could. Was shown around the property. Took about two hours. After the on-site visit I had to write about the experience explaining what I learned and liked about the on-site visit (about two pages). Overall, the interview process wasn't stressful, just time consuming.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview

    Very laid back, but still professional. Asked a lot of basic questions about past work experience and leadership styles. Was asked to come in for a in person interview at the end of the phone call. Make sure you ask questions at the end. Seemed like they were waiting for at least three and make sure you send a follow up email!
