    When you see a fire truck and see the name Pierce on the side, you know that you help to make that truck. You were part of something special. Everyone is very helpful if you have any questions they will help you. You are able to learn new jobs and able to work you way up the corporate ladder.


    There are non that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Working at Pierce was a great experience and I would love to return. I really enjoyed working with Pierce and if I was given the chance I would return to work my way up to the designing team. I have a Bachelors degree for design, I have the knowledge and experience to really create a new look for fire trucks.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Pierce Manufacturing in November 2012.


    The first step in the interview process was a phone interview with an HR Generalist and the hiring manager which took about 40 minutes and was very in depth. The phone interview was very helpful for me to be able to ask questions of the hiring manager and him to ask me questions to make sure this would be a good fit. I was called back within a week to come for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was scheduled over a 4 hour period with 6 different people and was a very intense process. My interview took place right after Thanksgiving and I was told that I should hear from them the week before Christmas but to be patient because the hiring process was usually pretty slow. I followed up with the HR Generalist two weeks after Christmas to see if she could provide a status update on my candidacy. It is now two months later and Pierce has not responded to my follow up email and I haven't received any communication regarding my candidacy of this position. I feel that the lack of communication is unprofessional and reflects very poorly on this company. A simple email to say thank you for your time but we are considering other candidates would have been appreciated as I took an entire day off of work to travel and partake in the lengthy interview process. I hope that more respect is given to potential clients and their time.
