Pros

Rewards Results driven, career oriented professionals. Simple mission statement, make profits by providing the best trucks in the world. Exceedingly smart management and peers. Seventy-Three Years of profits and large cash surplus provide stability and enable the company to invest in the future. Nice to be able to work at a company where you are proud of the product.

Cons

Strict rules on work hours. Very conservative norms. People not emotionally invested in their job will get washed out quickly (Pro?).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update Salary Structure.

    I worked at PACCAR

    Pros

    They have a good tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    Unfair promotion practices!!! You are ok if you are not a minority or woman. You have to be a member of the good old boy club. All employees are allowed only 5 sick days per year. They require you to wear out dated suits, but no advance to help you buy business attire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micromanaging and update your dress code. Corporate gray and black went away a long time ago.

    Pros

    PACCAR has a good reputation in the industry. They do a great deal for their employees and offer good benefits. If you are able to relocate, there are many opportunities available for advancement.

    Cons

    You must be willing to relocate to truly advance in the company if you do not live in the Seattle area. They are more interested in you having a degree than having actual experience. The salary is average, but could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great people that work for the company already that could benefit the organization but are overlooked due to their lack of a degree. Experience and loyalty should mean as much as a college degree, especially when some people had to go straight to work instead of college (for financial reasons) when they were younger. You need to look internally for your future leaders.
