Advice to Management

Learn to be flexible on the stuff that does not matter and focus on who delivers what - not just one what has worked in the past.

    Pros

    For smart driven employees, PACCAR offers most everything you could want in a company. The pay is good for my position and experience and there is an extremely high work life balance. You have the opportunity to move all over the world and gain a broad number of experiences. Unparalleled access to senior management. I enjoy my job very much.

    They will pay 50% of college tuition for an MBA which is almost required to move upwards in the company.
    There is also lots of training available in Six Sigma(big emphasis), foreign languages, managerial skills etc.
    Matching 401K and a pension

    Cons

    Many of the cons I read about PACCAR are that is too traditional, the pay is bad and the computers are old. My office is business casual, but I do still wear a tie although many do not. The pay might be below some of the other companies in the Seattle area, but the benefits and stability make up for it in my mind and there is no expectation to work 60 hours a week. The computers are old and slowly being replaced, but I have never worked anywhere with nice computers. The company is frugal, but I think that is a good value as a shareholder. We haven't lost money in over 73 years.


  2. Great help getting hired on for interns.

    Pros

    PACCAR is great for individuals that seek employment upon graduation. The management works really hard to try and help interns find jobs that fit their career path.

    Cons

    I am not writing cons.
