I worked at PACCAR full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A great place to start learning about work ethic and discipline
Professional working environment with high level of peer respect
Depending on your team, managers are very weathered (~30 years at PACCAR) and can get you up to speed in no time.

Cons

Salary is lower than other competition's (sort of a known fact).
Conservative ol' grandpa mentality - Wear a tie, be quiet, and laugh even when the manager makes a horrible joke.
Don't even try to negotiate for extra PTO. 2 weeks is what you get. Period!

Advice to Management

Please, let people wear jeans at least on Fridays, and not when there's a raffle or a new truck line coming out.
Oh, and most importantly, please quit laying off shop employees just to be profitable and be able to brag about this continuous profitability (at employees' cost) to the clients.

    I have been working at PACCAR full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    401k match 1%-5% depending on State of truck plants. Good Health care benefits. Decent pay if you live in the area. $12-$21 for floor workers.

    Cons

    Management has fallen into a bottomless pit of ignorance. Layoffs are getting more and more often. They keep worthless workers and layoff the hard workers (revert back to first statement) Horrible pay if you live 30+miles from. Cost of living raise? whats that?

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves or listen to your workers.

    I worked at PACCAR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had a clear career growth plan, offered above average benefits, and was close to my home. There was a few different directions you could go within the company.

    Cons

    Very rigid environement. there was always a feeling of people being hostile to each other, and random firings seemed like a normal occurance
