    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PACCAR.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 people. Each person I shook hands with had a limp, defeated, loose handshake. A bad sign. They put me in one of the shared workspaces and proceeded to ask me questions I would expect for an entry level tester. When I asked about all the bad feedback on glassdoor about working there and they all sort of laughed it off as not being very true. When I asked about the suit and tie they said it doesn't apply to IT but if you want to eat in the on campus diner you have to be suit and tie. As a test lead their expectation was for the lead to do more execution that leadership. The producer was nice and an ex microsoftie which was nice, but she seemed like she was only doing this job because it was closer to home and flat out told me she'd rather be at microsoft. Overall this was a bad experience and I felt like it was a huge waste of my time.

    Transportation Planner Interview

    Interview

    During the initial phone screen with the internal recruiter I was asked what my minimum salary requirements were. After conveying that, her response was "oh yeah that's very doable". From there I went through an interview with the hiring manager, and then a final interview with a regional manager. A few days later I was extended an offer from the recruiter which was significantly lower than my minimum salary requirements discussed on the initial call. It was a complete waste of time for both myself and PACCAR to put me through additional interviews and time if they knew they would low-ball me and not accept my salary requirements. When I asked the recruiter why they continued to push me through the process her response was, "because that was what I was directed to do". This shows a complete ineptitude and overall lack of respect. Maybe they thought it was possible to bait and switch me. Apparently they have the time and energy to do that. Buyer Beware! Very similar to dealing with a used car dealership. To be frank, I wasn't even asking that much considering the Seattle market. PACCAR--please don't waste people's time and energy and if you expect to hire the best talent you can't pay pennies on the dollar! Improve your antiquated and incompetent processes.

    IT Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PACCAR.

    Interview

    Their recruiter reached out to me. I first interviewed with the IT hiring manager, he straight up said that they don't need someone technical but he would like to hire someone who'd entertain the team. Next, I interviewed with the IT director who was professional. Then, I met the team: obviously they had never interviewed someone and they had no idea what kinda questions should be asked on a technical interview; they kept complaining and talking to eachother. They really needed entertainment. The next day, the recruiter emailed and said that they would like to move forward with the hiring. Then she disappeared for 10 more days before calling me. By that time, I found a better company.
