    Pros

    There is really nothing good to say about Paccar. If you make the mistake of going to work for them. Start looking for another job

    Cons

    Employee turnover is ridiculous pay is horrible way to old school. Pay sucks. Little or no raises ever. All the good employees get hired away by good companies

    I have been working at PACCAR full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Trucks are top quality. Benefits such as pension and 401k are excellent over the long run. There are many opportunities for advancement if you work hard, are a white male and your personality is a fit for the PACCAR culture.

    Cons

    Relationships are more important than competence, results or creativity. Benefits for regular employees are being eroded over time. Management is arrogant and deluded about what it's really like to work here. Smart employees have options and they are bailing on the company -- leaving behind a team of inexperienced managers who are leading inexperienced employees who generally lack creativity. Salaries are no longer competitive. The management team is almost entirely white, male, conservative and clean-shaven -- all others will feel uncomfortable and will have to walk on water to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to have quality employees and adequate resources to continue to produce quality products and services. You have to have a fun atmosphere that is open to new ideas if you want to foster creativity. Invest in your people, give them some latitude, and treat them in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and they will be much happier. Good employees will continue to bail if you don't change the culture of the company.
