Business Technology Project Manager (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – 29 June 2018
I've learned a lot at PACCAR. Management tends to give promotions to folks who actively try to make PACCAR a better company. It doesn't matter what your job is, your experience is based on what you make of it.

on m'a promis que j'aillais essayer plusieur poste, on m'a laisser au même poste, et lorsque j'ai poser la question on ma dit que j'allais avoir une note négative dans mon dossier comme quoi je suis trop difficile ( même si c'est promis a la base ). mais sinon cest correct
Very fast pace physical job that has great pay and benefits. Politics play a great part in this occupation. The jobs vary in easy to hard but you dont get to choose where you are put and some jobs are a lot more physically demanding than others. Most management got to where they are by knowing a friend that was already in management and got an interview with them to get moved up, not by knowing skills or job qualifications. You get two 10 min breaks at which you mainly work through or are trying to gather tools for the next truck leaving barely enough time to use the restroom, and one 30 min lunch. Recommended you bring your own because by the time you get to the cafeteria there is a long line not giving enough time to sit down to enjoy the meal. The best part of the job is the benefits and pay handsdown!
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbus, MS – 9 May 2018
Overall, it is a great place to work. Great benefits and pay. Management staff was very knowledgeable and easy to work for. A typical day was relaxed but could expect environment to become fast-pace and stressful at any given time.
District Manager (Current Employee) – Renton, WA – 22 April 2018
Workplace culture is a sad place to work, PACCAR gets new people in all the time, but they don't stay very long and the ones that do are lots of "yes" men.
PACCAR is a public traded company run by accountants and they do make money, Yearly goals do not come out till mid May, but you have to have all of your accomplishments into mgmt. the first week in Jan, so you have no idea what goals are to they are sent out. Tons of busy work, just to "check the box". Weekly news sent in to upper mgmt. can be only positive, no negative and no one is ever sure what they use the info for
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Ohio – 30 March 2018
PACCAR is a conservative company that is a leader in the heavy duty truck markets under Kenworth and Peterbilt name plates. You aren’t profitable for 78 years consecutive and not have a certain way of doing business. For some that style is not meant for them. PACCAR is very dependent on 6sigma methodologies in making decisions regarding investment opportunities.
Pension and 401k. If you put the time in and work hard you can advance.
People need to learn how to perform their own work balance situations.
Stay away the company is a fake in regards to appreciation of their employees.
Employee (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – 26 March 2018
The company is still in the stone age after making billions of dollars a year. Management is on a high horse and feels as if they are to high to help or get their hands dirty to help. Management puts constant pressure on you and provide no assistance when you ask for help. Frown upon you if you ask for time off. Management works against you and not with you.
Constant degradation, Long hours, No appreciation for employees, Stone age systems, and programs
Supplier Quality Manager (Former Employee) – Farmington Hills, MI – 23 February 2018
PACCAR is a strong industrial company that is very conservative and very slow to change. Suits are mandatory everyday, regardless off what your activity may entail. Many unwritten rules (no facial hair, etc).
