    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Lowell, AR).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with an intern council group as well as the group I was interviewing to join (Client Services/PC Support).

    Operations Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hayward, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt (Hayward, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later I got a call from Zulma in Arkansas who works for the recruiting department at the company. She was very nice and told me a lot about the position and the company. Next was a 30ish minute phone interview. She then referred me to the site where I'd potentially be working and I interviewed with someone there. The interview was overall easy and it seemed more like a conversation than an interview. He said someone will get back to me in a week with the decision. However, more than two weeks went by and I contacted the Recruiting department inquiring about whether a decision has been made. Cassie got back to me and said a decision has not been made yet and they'll let me know once they decide. It's been a month and a half and still nothing. Following these experiences, I no longer seek to pursue a career with JB Hunt as I strongly believe them to be extremely unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of 1 brief phone call and two lengthy in-person interviews which lasted 1-2 hours. During one of the in-person interviews, the office staff had a chance to do their own in-person interview of you as you shadowed them. This was probably the most important interview. The staff had a lot of decision making power on who got hired.
