Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – October 9, 2017
I was with this company for almost 4 years and never received any type of career advancement. They speak to you very rudely and treat you like you're less than human. I wouldn't recommend this job for anyone.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – October 2, 2017
Typical day is show up on time and begin working. Managers are great to work with. Training is spectacular. Workplace culture is inviting. The hardest part of the job was 3rd shift. The most enjoyable part of the job is the work and coworkers.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Racine County, WI – September 28, 2017
If you have a criminal record or just don't have any luck with finding a job they will help you get a job as soon as one comes available. You have to call them to let them know your available for work.
Substitute Teacher K-12 (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 12, 2017
Control over your schedule is the best reason to work here. The salary rates are competitive with other substitute teaching companies as well. The office staff is always available and very helpful too.
CUSTOMER SERVICE - SUPPORT (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – August 17, 2017
I have worked at many locations through this temp service, but they didn't stay in contact with the client or myself at the last place I worked. I was let go without any notice and neither the company I was working at or the temp service knew what was going on.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – June 30, 2017
I worked for them on one assignment. Staff was friendly, except for one of the recruiter who actually rolled her eyes at me. Other than that they are there to get you a job and they do just that. Of course, based on your skills.
They can get you long term jobs, on top of payroll
Recruiting Specialist (Former Employee) – Racine, WI – March 4, 2017
Parallel Employment is a good company. There is always something going on and no two days are the same. You do have to catch on quickly but once you do there is so much to learn. Management is easy to work with. I liked my manager and the people that I worked with. You meet a variety of people but with any job you learn to deal with things as they happen.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 27, 2017
I had to wait for a call to come into work. I didn't get many calls after the 2 year of working there. I worked at different schools in Milwaukee, Racine, and Waukesha. Some of the schools were really nice. I loved teaching the students. The hardest part was when I had a classroom filled with students that didn't want to learn and all they wanted to do was start fights with each other.
temporary help (Former Employee) – Delavan, WI – May 2, 2016
Pretty much anything you know about temp agency's are accurate about Parallel. Same stuff different place really, but the staff is helpful and friendly so that's a plus, not like QPS representatives. QPS are still by far the worst to work for.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 26, 2015
This is a great way to earn extra income in between jobs. The flexibility was one of the biggest perks! The staff at the agency were in regular contact to assess how well things went on each assignment. The per diem rate wasn't high enough. Otherwise, this was a good short-term / temporary employment experience.
Regular contact with agency, ability to choose hours and assignments
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – September 11, 2015
Love love working here. Environment is decent. You work on your own little work station. No coming across any problems with others or being crowded with others. Everyone's respectful and very hard working people. Learn what wires belongs to which plug in order to work. Very interesting, especially knowing you're like making lights or wires for other company such as military truck companies.
I am a beautiful people person. I learn very quickly at my assigned job. Because of the correct type of training I provided so much to the team. I was in tune with the managers and the corporate Mangers when they were present.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 27, 2015
A typical day at work is to pick kids up from lunch room and escort them to class to begin our day of learning. I learned that today's students are much different than when I was a kid and from my children. Therefore I have to adjust teaching to their understanding and try to have fun as well. The coworkers are great with providing information about different schools we may be assigned to and if the students are unruly etc. The hardest part of the day is trying to reach and teach todays students when some of them don't care about their education and interfere with the ones who do want to learn. The most enjoyable part of the day is when I actually do reach the ones who say they don't care along with the few that do!
Packaging (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 12, 2015
It was very nice because the managers weren't always looking over your shoulder to make sure you were doing your job. They were just hoping that you are doing your job the right way and hope you would tell someone if you messed up.
Not so many employees so it wasn't crowded
Some of the employees would tell you what to do even though the managers were not around
