    Associate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Renton, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA (US)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Received a phone call to interview on campus - there was no phone interview. The interview was a panel interview with 5 of my would-be peers, and the manager. They all asked various questions, most of which asked for definitions of "everybody should know" software development terms. There was a "what would you do in this situation" question regarding support. After the panel interview, I was called in for a 1:1 with the manager. They asked some personality questions and then I was sent upstairs to have a 1:1 with the director. More personality questions, and a few days later I received an offer. I'm giving this a negative rating only because I think it is a terrible way to interview if you're looking for a competent software developer.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were easy but this one stuck out as kind of odd. I was shown a piece of paper with 2 blocks of markup. I was asked to identify what each of them was.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as I was young and naive. My suggestion is to negotiate if you feel like you deserve more. Treat any promise like you would a promise given by a used car dealer. Make sure everything is on paper.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Renton, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA (US)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Interview and hiring process is average. They call you and schedule an interview. You come in and meet with the hiring manager one on one. Sometimes depending on the job, they will have group interviews. Second interviews usually consist of meeting the director of the group. When going into an interview be sure to wear a suit for any job interview here. First impressions are very important here. They ask typically interview questions. Make sure you do your research on the company, industry and job.

    Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PACCAR (Renton, WA (US)) in September 2008.

    Interview

    The first step of the process was a phone interview. After a few days I was contacted and they set up another interview for the next business week. It was 5:1 and not even at a round table. Me on one side of the table and the others all asking questions from what looked to be duplicates of the same sheet. It was difficult knowing whom to address with so many people and I thought it was weird to have all at once as opposed to separate interviews. Either way, I think my case is rare, but expect standard questions and zero creativity. Like everything at PACCAR, they were by the book.
