    Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Mount Vernon, WA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and interviewed on campus which led to a phone interview with hiring manager and then an on-site visit. The recruiter was very good about moving the process along quickly but at the same time being flexible to my schedule. On-site interview consisted of an interview with hiring manager(s), technical presentation and a mostly informal panel interview with my future team members. Everyone was very laid back and were honest to share their opinion about what they like/not like about the company and the location. Most questions were behavioral and some good technical questions during my presentation.

    I had a telephone screen within a week followed by an in person interview shortly after. the telephone screen was fairly short with pretty generic questions regarding my interest in the position and my understanding of the company's background. the in-person interview was more directly related to the specific position and how my experiences fit

    Summer Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PACCAR (Bellevue, WA).

    Interview

    I filled out an application on the website and recruiter called me months later and set up a phone interview. It lasted about 30 minutes. I was later called back for an in person interview.

    The in person interview was basically a bunch of college seniors being shuffled with three different department managers. So everyone got to interview with three different areas such as tax, corporate, and international (BRIC Brazil Russia India China).

    I was very excited because working for a huge corporation was a dream on mine. Paccar seemed very respectable. However, I was immediately turned off as I approached the building.

    It is older than other buildings in Bellevue. The furnishings are old. They claim they do not invest in the glitz and glam of the office...but here's the kicker...you have to wear a suit to work everyday. I'm not wearing a suit to work with Office 2010. No thank you. $18 an hour isn't enough to go buy a wardrobe of new suits.

    But I said to myself...don't judge a book by its cover. My first interview was just your basic behavioral questions. She read them off a piece of paper and wrote down some answers. I was worried I didn't do very well. I said to myself that I still have 2 more and to take a breath.

    I reached my second interviewer and I was ready to wow him. He pulled out a piece of paper and I kid you not....asked me the same exact questions in the same exact order as the previous interviewer. I was baffled. I mean, is it really the best way to get to know a candidate? By making them perform the same exact interview 3 times? I even tried to tell him I have been asked these questions and he said "we are required by hr"...

    By the time I was on my way to the third interview, I mentally checked out. I just wanted to get out of here. My last interviewer asked me the same questions and I just repeated my answers. I was done.

    If you enjoy movies in black and white, this may just be the perfect place for you. Otherwise, stay clear.

    Return Parts Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by recruiter quickly. Had two in-person interviews the same week. First one was casual, second one - not so much, but I think that was due to difference in interviewing experience. Nice people but overall very formal environment so dress professionally. The interview questions were not that difficult - pretty standard. Asked me to bring copies of my resume, but then didn't ask for them at the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was a very short process. Only a fifteen minute phone screening and then came into their office for a formal interview that lasted forty five minutes at the very most. Not particularly challenging at all and the employees are very friendly and inviting. I got an email stating they would like to do a phone screening and I was hired less than two weeks later.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Renton, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Felt like I was just a box they had to cross off...once I entered the room, the interviewer just went through the motions. I have a lot of experience within the company but they know that I have 25 years in and more than likely will retire within 5 years...and most likely, that's the reason why I can no longer advance.
