Quality Control Supervisor (Former Employee) – Chillicothe, OH – July 18, 2018
I worked in a salary position, and the company was usually fair and recognized our efforts. It used to be a family oriented company/atmosphere when I worked there, but heard things have veered away from that atmosphere since. All in all if the economy hadn’t tanked, I would’ve stayed there.
Extra effort and hard work was recognized
Driven by economy, layoffs may occur when economy is down
A typical day would involve taking verbal and mental abuse from the management while your coworkers plot to pass all blame to you. My own manager would not stand up for me while I was learning the job. There is a lot of politics, and the "good ole boys club" rules it all. It is an unethical company. They have no qualms about taking advantage of the employees to increase the management's pay. I do not recommend this place, or any PACCAR company, to work for. If you do, watch your back because someone IS out to get you.
Took on many different projects for the company and got exposure the manufacturing world. Worked not only with the manufacturing engineering department but also line workers and other engineering departments within the company.
Detailer (Former Employee) – Lackawanna, NY – August 7, 2017
Fair pay and benefits for decent work. Good management. very poor workplace culture. Can get hectic and work will build up with deadlines looming. Days can drag on because your co-workers projects can be int he way of yours ruining your plans for the day.
Information Technology Intern (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – April 30, 2017
This was my first ever summer internship focused around what I want to do as my profession (Information Technology). Amazing first-time experience and Kenworth knows how to treat their interns well. The company has specific projects and an outline for their interns the minute that they start working for the summer. I was kept busy the entire summertime and received a vast amount of knowledge of what the Information Technology Department could withhold. I highly recommend this to any college students who are just starting out and want an enjoyable first time experience in the work force.
Great Work Environment, Friendly Coworkers, Look forward to going to work
