    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

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt Transport 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.

    Interview

    A JB Hunt recruiter contacted me about a position that seemed like a good fit. He sent me a HackerRank test, which I completed that weekend. I never heard back from them, positively or negatively. I followed up with the recruiter via e-mail, but never got a response.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.B. Hunt Transport (Dallas, TX) in January 2019.

    Interview

    JB Hunt – the massive trucking firm – somehow found me, I think, on LinkedIn. One of their internal recruiters reached out to me and set up a phone screen.

    The phone screen is a typical first conversation in which you tell them about your background, they tell you about the company, and then issue a coding challenge – in this case, on HackerRank.

    My initial conversation was for a remote position in the Dallas region and went about 45 minutes. Since it was an HR-style recruiter, I could not deep dive on technical questions I had.

    Most applicants shouldn’t have problems with the initial phone screen. Passing this first milestone gets you a request to complete a HackerRank assessment (test). HackerRank is a very popular screening tool that combines various types of questions (multiple choice, true/false) with short coding exercises using a code editor with a subset of what you’d find in a full integrated development environment (like Visual Studio).

    The assessment consists of about 15 questions and takes 2 to 3 hours to complete. My particular assessment had two sections – coding and database. I was able to get through the coding portion but not the database portion (three questions).

    Attempts to contact the recruiter after completion of the assessment were fruitless – they didn’t have the courtesy to write back, so that should tell you something about this organization.

    If you turn out to be the kind of assumed superstar Hunt is seeking, you might consider other places first. If their recruiting organization is any indication of the kind of place they are, they’re a typical, large, disconnected enterprise with poor communication.

    I applied online a few days later I received a phone call interview and was declined. Not a negative experience as he was very polite and professional and told me to apply with a competitor for at least 90 days then reapply and he would give me a serious offer.
