Laid back
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 30, 2018
There is a little bit of a learning curve coming in from other warehouses. They will help you learn. If they feel like the department you’re currently working in isn’t a good fit they won’t just get rid of you they’ll try and move you around to see what benefits the company and you.

Great Company
Outbound shipping coordinator (Former Employee) –  American Canyon, CAFebruary 13, 2018
Dynacraft was a great company to work for, and I learned so much during my time there. It is a fast paced environment that was fun and challenging. I would recommend this job to anyone looking for work in the distribution field.

Dynacraft is a Paccar company and is great to work for
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Algona, WAFebruary 6, 2018
My short time at dynacraft was a great experience. Management is great but will keep you continually challenged if that is what you like. If you have the desire to grow they will help you along. Great benefits and room for advancement.
Pros
Great hours
Cons
Tough late policy and time off

Poor Management
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 13, 2018
This could be a great place to work if upper management were changed. The company is run on the good old boys network and it is a cutthroat management style. Management looks for flaws and exploits them on a large basis. A change in management would be a great thing for this company.
Pros
salary
Cons
Plant and Asst Plant Managers

Very Goal Driven
Unit Manager / Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYApril 5, 2017
I advanced very quickly to management with Dynacraft. Unfortunately, Dynacraft's policy for internal recruits for management positions is not competitive with outside hires. I never had a negative review since I have been working there.
Pros
Easy jobs.
Cons
No respect for internal candidates that were promoted.

Business is unstable in warehouse

If your in working in the warehouse, job security is not great. While you are working you do make enough to take care of all essential needs for living.

Good people, too much managment turnover
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Algona, WAJune 15, 2016
The people that work there became family. The turn over of upper management made it difficult at times (4 plant managers and 2 GMs in five years). Every one of them had a different way they wanted to run the business.
Pros
Building relationships within a diverse working environment
Cons
Managment turnover and everybody looking over their back

Good but not Great
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Algona, WANovember 2, 2015
Overall this is a very fair work environment but it is quite bureaucratic in terms of driving actual change. They pay lip service to a continuous improvement mentality but employees are not really empowered or driven to excel.

However the work environment is extremely balanced, people are very friendly and it does allow for exposure to the resources that PACCAR as a company provides.
