With nearly 32,000 containers traveling the roads and rails, Hub Group knew we had something unique to offer: mobile billboards.  Why not designate some of the containers to transport charitable messages?  From that simple idea, the Cause Container campaign was born in 2015. We transformed four of our 53’ containers into mobile billboards with message of hope and action for our charity partners.  For every original photo taken of a Cause Container and posted in social media with the hashtag #CauseContainer, we donated $100 to that partner.

In our first year, we raised nearly $70,000 for our charity partners. 

Our current charity partners:

  • Bright Pink, which educates on breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection;

  • Fisher House Foundation, which provides housing to active military, veterans and their families during times of medical crisis. At Hub Group we have over 100 active military and veterans;
  • Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, the top children’s hospital in Illinois and one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation;

  • The National Park Foundation, which manages and preserves our national parks;
  • Chicago Blackhawks Charities, which supports programs and institutions that impact the lives of youth and their families in and around the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Hub Group (Oak Brook, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    HR process is very unprofessional and disorganized. Hr called, asked a few questions, then scheduled interview. After that there was no interaction with HR. No follow up, no response to any of my emails. Was waiting on feedback and finally a generic email came back saying there wasn't a position that fit my qualifications. Really? Then why did you have me waste my time coming out for an interview if I wasn't qualified for the job?

    Definitely not a place I would want to work! Worst experience ever.
