PACCAR Employee
in Algona, WA

"Company focus is profitability, not being profitable through operational efficiency.Culture is style over substance. Therefore people get promoted by looking good, not understand how the operation works.As a result, goals a vague, impossible to achieve, but non-managers are held to them.Management direction is top down and will not accept lower employee's know more than Sr. Leaders.Very difficult place to work if not a long term career PACCAR employee."

What don't you like about working at PACCAR?

"Very conservative company that is traditionalist and demands things done accordingly. Also a few management issues. For one there was a lot of micro managing. Two, when I went to immediate Manager for feedback, clarification or questions, on whatever project I was currently working on, I was given the impression everything looked fine as is; however when the two of us would meet with senior management, the immediate manager's entire attitude changed, suddenly having all these bright ideas. Making individual look bad, while building her own image."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Less micro managing, trust the people you hire to perform their job. Senior manager need to be more accessible to disclose issues between immediate supervisors Allow differences of opinions and changes. Allow for a more laid back environment"
