What is the retirement plan like at PACCAR?

Pros

The benefits are good, 5% match on 401K, immediately vested, plus a pension. Medical and dental are ok cost wise. It is nice that PACCAR offers so many (5) medical plans. It's easy to standout here, there are some groups that are lacking in motivation/skills so if you are a hard worker and care about improving things you will be standout

Cons

Some groups are dragging by day to day working with these groups is like pulling teeth. You will end up spending the majority of your time working through road blocks with these groups and often doing their job for them. If their work is upstream of yours you can expect your schedule to compress to allow them to complete their work, while your own work gets tighter and tighter

Advice to Management

What is the feeling of job security at PACCAR?

Pros

Awesome coworkers, you can move around the company easily, they provide tools (sometimes that's an issue), decent work life balance but not for everyone (depends on your role and manager), paid for my CDL, cafeteria on site.

Cons

Not high enough wages for the work you're doing and the cost of living here. Some managers are cancer to your career if you aren't overly buddy buddy with them. Some managers are outright unprofessional in their distaste in employees. HR does not care about legit complaints about coworker and managers who cross the line. HR is more in control than managers when it comes to your reviews. They only allow probably 5% of employees a "exceeds expectation" review. Everyone else gets "meets expectation" or worse. You can go WAY above and beyond but you will never get recognized for it. Most people there talk trash about technicians compared to engineers. The company laid off people even though they preach job security. The management at the top care more about their stock holders than they do their product quality or employees.

Advice to Management

Fire the top people and bring in people who care about the company, product, and employees

The company laid off people even though they preach job security.
