    Return Parts Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Renton, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by recruiter quickly. Had two in-person interviews the same week. First one was casual, second one - not so much, but I think that was due to difference in interviewing experience. Nice people but overall very formal environment so dress professionally. The interview questions were not that difficult - pretty standard. Asked me to bring copies of my resume, but then didn't ask for them at the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was a very short process. Only a fifteen minute phone screening and then came into their office for a formal interview that lasted forty five minutes at the very most. Not particularly challenging at all and the employees are very friendly and inviting. I got an email stating they would like to do a phone screening and I was hired less than two weeks later.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Felt like I was just a box they had to cross off...once I entered the room, the interviewer just went through the motions. I have a lot of experience within the company but they know that I have 25 years in and more than likely will retire within 5 years...and most likely, that's the reason why I can no longer advance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PACCAR (Bellevue, WA).

    Interview

    I applied through glassdoor and the recruiter contacted me to schedule a phone interview the next day and set up a phone interview. Typical phone interview, almost all behavioral questions. The only technical one was about Excel skill and SAP experience. It went smoothly, just basic behavioral questions. But the connection was really bad. I had to ask the recruiter to repeat herself for several questions. Got the second round interview confirmation in 2 months. The second one is three 30 min interviews with hiring managers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Two interviews consisting of one phone and one face-to-face with a panel of HR personnel. The interview process was rather simple. I recommend being prepared with as much knowledge as possible of what PACCAR does internally as a culture and externally in the communities they serve, and just show that you have a genuine interest in the company and the position you are applying for. I really enjoyed getting to talk to the PACCAR team as it felt more like a conversation than an interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Kirkland, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initial interview with HR revealed that the engineering staff has a dress code (shirt and tie) and they don't like facial hair. This company is living in the '60's. They expect to find an experienced engineer willing to work for modest wages and doing elementary wiring work. Very lame!
