Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Chillicothe, OHApril 25, 2018
I loved the job itself, but the hours is what drove me away from the company. Being stuck on second shift 430pm-1am was not something I could do for 3-4 years before i could bid onto a day shift job.

Fast paced production facility
Team Assembler (Former Employee) –  Renton, WA 98057March 7, 2018
work is fast paced and demanding. Not a good fit for everyone. Motivated people will have no trouble fitting in. You are expected to work hard and complete your assignment on time.
Pros
Good pay with excellent benefits
Cons
sometime dificult to get things repaired.

Miserable place to work
Facility Controls Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chillicothe, OHFebruary 28, 2018
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.
Pros
decent medical
Cons
Everything else.

Great Worklife Balance
S&O Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Kirkland, WAFebruary 28, 2018
Great work life balance, have plenty of work to keep you busy. Management is poor, does not get involved and show a "don't care feeling." Mostly all on your own work, you learn by doing.
Pros
Worklife balance and business casual
Cons
Management, low compensation, and all on your own work.

Assembly and Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Renton, WANovember 14, 2017
No room for advancement. It was a very fast paced workplace. The assembly was not a very effective workplace, had lots of errors due to lack of time to work on the trucks.

Detailer (Former Employee) –  Lackawanna, NYAugust 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.

Excellent Company for Summer Internships
Information Technology Intern (Former Employee) –  Kirkland, WAApril 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.
Pros
Great Work Environment, Friendly Coworkers, Look forward to going to work
Cons
Some days might not always the most exciting
