    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Peterbilt Motors Company (San Francisco, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Very detailed questions about experience and productivity. While most companies would dig into sales results, Paccar wanted even more detail about past jobs. In fact, stability at one or two past jobs would be the cutoff; any greater number of previous employment reflected poorly on candidate.

    Electrical Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denton, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Peterbilt Motors Company (Denton, TX) in November 2012.

    Interview

    When I arrived for the interview, a person from Human Resources took me directly to a conference room where a panel of eight people from different disciplines had copies of my resume. Each individual would take turns asking different situational style questions. They did not go into much detail about the company itself. However starting as a new engineer, they did explain to me that you must work out in production for 6 months before you actually enter into the engineering department,
    They found out that this works better due to the fact that you have experienced and have a better understanding of how these semi-trucks are built.

    Interview Questions

    • The majority of the questions were situational type scenarios.   1 Answer
