    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

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

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

    Interview

    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).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at PACCAR (Mount Vernon, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview came at a college career fair. That interview was a friendly 30min interview with two people, one who asked all the questions. I felt great about how it ended, I wrote follow-up emails to both of them asking when I would hear back from them and neither replied.

    4 months later and 10 job applications at this location later, I get a call asking me to review a different opening than any of the ones I applied for. I liked it, so I applied and had a phone phone interview with the program manager (30, super easy resume stuff). Scheduled and onsite interview for 3 weeks later where I met one-on-one with 4 different team members and an HR person. All were very laid back and had good conversation. No difficult questions, just making sure that I understood the position. Another awesome interview down. 2 weeks later I got a miserable automated email telling me that I didn't get the job.

    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!
