Engineer (Current Employee) – USA – 23 August 2018
PACCAR is an excellent place to start working and an excellent place to retire. As a starting job, pay and benefits are amazing. The retirement plan is amazing. Not only do they have a 401(k) (with up to 5% matching) but there's also a pension plan. Not many companies have that anymore. However, for a mid-career employer, it seems lacking. The advancement potential seems low as they prefer to practice "pro-tations." This is when, instead of a promotion, they rotate you around for you to gain experience in other fields. Eventually though, you will have done everything and stay where you are. Given that that is the only negative I can think of at PACCAR, I very much do recommend it.
Intern (Former Employee) – Sainte-Thérèse, QC – 28 August 2018
I was an intern for 4 months. People said that the starting salary is good but it doesn't go up as fast as other companies. I've seen some people count the number of days before their retirement. They looked bored in the offices.
Sr.Lease Admin./Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – 20 August 2018
My day never began as intended. Before my coat was off I would have several people asking for something. It was fast paced, stressful and demanding of perfection.
I learned how to multi-task and prioritize work tasks.
The work culture was very professional as this was a corporate office environment. I could be tasked to provide upper management to CEO and senior staff assistance as anytime.
The most difficult part of my job was a very demanding senior officer requesting assistance in simple daily operations, i.e. computer usage, email and phones. I have to say after 20 years I did a great job in training. At year 6 - I was able to eliminate the Dictaphone!
The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I met and had a professional relationship with. A great company with support and training.
A progressive compay, well rounded
Stressfull work enviroment, must be able to multi-task.
Accounting Intern (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – 13 August 2018
I had a good experience working at PACCAR and learned a lot working in the accounting department. The company is definitely behind the times and needs to start adapting to the current job market or they won't be able to attract new talent. Overall I don't regret working at PACCAR because of how much I learned, but the company definitely needs a cultural overhaul.
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.
