    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PACCAR full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    clean work environment to work in

    Cons

    Experience means nothing, only way to advance is with a degree. Managers have zero training being managers. can't run a crew effectively, repairs are done by the "it's on fire" method. no forward thinking. spare parts are trashed if not used within a year so managers will look good. no idea how to maintain a budget. yet at end of year, there is extra money to be spent.
