I have been working at PACCAR full-time (More than 5 years)
PACCAR Parts has done a major culture change in recent years. The newly formed Diversity Council has done fantastic job by hosting language days, pride parade event, volunteering events and food trucks come on site to spice up the food offerings. Management is really engaged in employee well being and has done multiple changes based on employee survey responses. The culture is changing and there is a lot of opportunity for growth. If people choose not to advance or grow they should stop blaming the management. There is opportunity to travel, learn more about data analysis and be a part of a team based environment. All new employees get to meet PACCAR Parts upper management 1:1. Some remodels and furniture updates have made great impact on overall culture and environment. Great 401k, pension and also vacation policy has improved in the last year. Recently more casual dress, but know when to wear your suit.
Allow working from home from time to time. PACCAR ITD allows more flexible schedule due to business model.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing because the employees see the change. Music in Cafeteria has been another great addition!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA) in December 2010.
Received a phone call to interview on campus - there was no phone interview. The interview was a panel interview with 5 of my would-be peers, and the manager. They all asked various questions, most of which asked for definitions of "everybody should know" software development terms. There was a "what would you do in this situation" question regarding support. After the panel interview, I was called in for a 1:1 with the manager. They asked some personality questions and then I was sent upstairs to have a 1:1 with the director. More personality questions, and a few days later I received an offer. I'm giving this a negative rating only because I think it is a terrible way to interview if you're looking for a competent software developer.
I didn't negotiate as I was young and naive. My suggestion is to negotiate if you feel like you deserve more. Treat any promise like you would a promise given by a used car dealer. Make sure everything is on paper.
