Mechatronics Reliability Engineer - Intern (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – January 27, 2016
I was employed as an Intern with Diamler for four months. During that time I was treated like a regular, full-time employee which was wonderful, because I was given the opportunity to learn from my colleagues that had much more experience in the industry than I did at the time of the internship. It was a very enriching experience, and I am very thankful for the opportunity.

If you plan to come to Portland, OR for a job in DTNA (former Freightliner) don't move to this city. You are contractor and when you leave you cannot go back for 6 Months. And here in Portland is nothing you can work in this rainy town. The coworkers are OK, the Managers are older men working partly with a MS-DOS program. My coworkers in full time positions are dreaming of the good old days. The hardest part of the work is, when you cannot bring your own ideas into the design team. After you left DTNA you have to annoying the recruiters, after you find a job offer in indeed for an CAD or Engineer job. Here a so many Engineers out of work.
I learned a lot of truck design.
No chance to stay as contractor after a contract position.
assembler (Former Employee) – Gaffney, SC – October 14, 2015
Good work environment but the company shows little respect for their employees. Management communicates poorly and seemingly operates under the 'good ole' boy' system that shows favoritism to some while belittling others. Most co-workers are good people there. Work fluctuates with market demands that can in most instances lead to lay-offs every few years.
Good benefits and pay
Poor management, retalitory behavior from management, frequent lay-offs
Productive and fun place to work with room to transfer and advance within:
Sr. Warranty/Transporter Analyst Tech (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – April 17, 2015
The best company to work for period: * Typical work day consists of claims processing for about 5-6 hours of the day and the rest are spent for breaks and meetings. * I learned a lot. Seems each day I am learning something new. * Management and upper management are great. They take really good care of their people. * Get along well with all of my co workers. * The hardest part about the job is working to find the right answer for a complicated Warranty/Campaign question and making sure assigned reports are out in time before deadlines. * The most enjoyable part of the job is just that, its enjoyable.
Fee or discounted Blazers and Timbers tickets. Paid tuition for school. Awesome company parties.
Business System Analyst (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – February 26, 2015
People are very proud of the product and the working conditions are great. I did not receive benefits as a contractor and this became the reason for my departure. Others received great benefits and were very happy with day to day activities.
