    I have been working at Peterbilt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and a pension plan. Work force is loyal and great to work with. Plant employees are loyal and incredible.

    Cons

    Only 2 weeks of vacation for the 1st 5 years, pay is below market average for exempt employees. Most departments run lean, and you can work as much overtime as you want.

    Advice to Management

    Could be a lot of openings in engineering and purchasing with Toyota locating to Frisco, TX.
