    They don't force you to do overtime. You get Saturdays and Sundays off which was nice since i had younger Kids. The pay was very nice for easy work. Benefits were great. Very Friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to keep up with the production demands.

    I have been working at Peterbilt Motors Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When you do have work, it's very interesting work especially if you want to know the ins and outs of the automotive industry.

    Cons

    I was left to dry with days on end with no work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire less interns, so that there is a larger amount of work for each intern to do.

    I have been working at Peterbilt Motors Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Also given regular and consistent hours. The work as far as checking in parts an equipment is easy to learn an do.

    Cons

    Must be outside in the elements on a regular basis. It's a very labor demanding job. In other words you must be used to hard labor an a hot sun.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to younger employees. I feel that if they gave an incentive and or goal to reach for they're younger employees they'd be given a better opportunity to grow as a company .

    I have been working at Peterbilt Motors Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Work/Life balance is great for most. Great people to work with. Opportunities for travel. Denton has improved a lot since I started.

    Cons

    Below-average pay, with infrequent promotions/raises. Two big layoffs in the last decade. More of the interesting engineering work takes place at the Technical Center.

    Advice to Management

    I certainly appreciate the effort to improve things with added vacation and flex time, keep at it! Lots of experts retiring soon and no incentive for younger employees to fill their shoes, maybe something to consider. Less emphasis on cost savings, more emphasis on quality improvement. Take notice of your hard workers and reward their efforts, recognition can be very motivating.
