Style over Substance
Product Development Manager (Current Employee), Algona, WAJune 30, 2014
Pros: easy to work an 8hr day.
Cons: management rules by fear, original thinking penalized, living in past, and not a problem solving culture, rather a quick fix and move on culture.
Management rewards people who can look good and make mundane daily activities look good.
This is not a problem solving culture and attempting to solve problems is met with resistance. Speaking against management, or having an original thought is considered insubordination.
Management rules by fear and smart people are mushed into corner for non-technical – more... people that speak well but have no practical experience.
The culture lives in the past about how they have always made money cutting employes benefits in the down turns to pay dividends and make profits, but isn't innovating and looking to be competitive in the future. – less

Corporate Commodity Manager (Current Employee), Denton, TexasApril 11, 2014
Dynamic environment, hands on experience gained in terms of logistics, reading drawings, material management, supplier quality, project management. The commodity manager is the point of contact for any issues that happen anywhere in the supply chain at any point in time. Great learning ground, however long term career growth, management development, – more... or mentoring programs are a major weakness at PACCAR. – less

Management too controlling and not focused on helping employees succeed.
Analyst (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: work is pretty consistently 40 hrs/week
Cons: no collaboration, teamwork or growth.
Senior management creates a culture of intimidation that is not healthy for the employees. Focus is too heavy on shareholder return rather than career development and longevity of the company. There is a "do what your told" mentality rather than collaborating to find the best solution.

Paccar is a growing company that has a lot to offer to those that know how to operate forklifts. It can get real busy at times during the spring/summer seasons. I learned how to operate forklifts and other equipment.

Great work/life balance!
QA Program Manager (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAOctober 2, 2013
PACCAR Inc has an extremely positive work/life balance - the best I have seen in my 19 years in the Information Technology industry. Their IT division is composed of very seasoned and professional leaders who are very good at mentoring. Overall, it has been a very positive experience for me.

One heck of an opportunity!!!
Distribution Associate (Current Employee), Renton, WaMay 18, 2013
Pros: top of the industry pay, normal hours and shitfs, appreciation shown by management, hard work pays off here.
Cons: warehouse technology seems a little dated
There are not many other places I would consider working after being here at Paccar. A old school company that has solid values and business practices. The compensation is outstanding and there is great work-life balance. This is a place you take pride in working hard for; they work hard for you in return.

Friendly but cheap
Technical Writer (contract) (Current Employee), Mount Vernon, WADecember 23, 2012
Pros: friendly co-workers
Cons: the owner is an ego maniac and it negatively affects morale and business.
The owner is a little off like Howard Hughes. There are dozens of crazy stories about him. He fires people because he doesn't like the way they look, for example. This chaotic management trickles down through the management structure and makes it an odd place to work.
Also, wages are lower than average. Havings said this, if you get an offer here, you – more... might want to take it. Most of the workers are very friendly. – less

Profitable Company, High Management Turnover, Initiatives to Copy Toyota
Six Sigma Black Belt - Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee), LouisvilleNovember 8, 2012
Pros: free coffee, independence
Cons: work life not stable due to management turnover.
This company has implemented PPS which is a half-hearted effort to copy TPS (Toyota Production System). Managers tend not to spend much time on the floor. Orientation is toward quality, but not much training given to employees. Some managers, engineers and salaried people do not have a good work ethic. The shop floor employees basically run the company. – more... Standard Work Instructions exist but are not available to employees only through computers which are not readily available to operators. They seem to treat long term employees well. – less
