    I have been working at Barr-Nunn Transportation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My good driving record,in part the result of company managements being aware of hazardous conditions at shipping customers. Very Safety conscious company. Seems to value the employee drivers need to earn a good pay check and have time for other obligations,family,children,and other matters. Contact people on nights and weekends are usually available and helpful. Mostly good equipment,and Safety record. "IMPORTANT" Team Leader is the person to contact for help with Barr-Nunn needs.

    Cons

    Over obligated to family atmosphere. Some of us don't need to cultivate our family connections. Be careful visiting company offices everywhere Charlotte,NC. ,Manchester,PA.,Columbus,OH.,Jacksonville,FL.,Granger,IA., Thanks Everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Perfecting freight base Barr-Nunn needs to limit commitments for short miles, with long waits.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barr-Nunn Transportation (Granger, IA).

    Interview

    Very extensive interview process. Had an initial phone interview. Then about a week or so later had a interview with the head of the department, two employees, and the head of HR in one day. Overall it was a 2.5 hour interview process. Only complaint is I was told I would hear something in a week and didn't hear anything for 3.5 weeks even after I sent a follow up email. I understand it's a common practice in interviewing/HR but I do think it's a bit rude and reflects poorly on the company. I eventually received a letter in the mail saying they selected a different candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of behavior based questions. You'll get asked the same questions by multiple people so I suggest you remember how you answer.   Answer Question
