    Accounting Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at PACCAR.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Human Resources Summer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PACCAR.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PACCAR in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Only made it to the phone interview. Mostly behavioral questions, the only technical one was asking what I could do with Excel. My particular interviewer was sweet and didn't try to make the interview too hard on me. If they had offered me the internship, I would have liked to accept (based on what I learned from the phone interview).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PACCAR in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied through Husky Jobs and got a phone interview. The interview was very friendly. She explained what would I be expected to do during the internship and she asked about what I expected of the company, the work and my colleagues at PACCAR. It was my first interview experience so I was kinda nervous. I got selected for the next round so I believe I did the previous interview well.
