Pacvac Perks

It’s rare these days for employees to stay with a company for more than a year or two, unlike the good old days when people became a part of the place they worked. Well, we’re all about those good old days, and we invest in our people, which is why we currently have people who have been here for 28 years! We do great work in a casual office environment, where you’ll find good music playing, a self-serve candy bar and a fully stocked Kitchen (not that you’ll need it with the array of food everyone brings in to share!). Our warehouse boasts a basketball hoop, darts, tennis, and pool tables to keep up with our strong sporting culture. Not into sports? No worries! We have plenty of social activities to get you familiarised with in our multicultural, dynamic Pacvac family.
