Very Stressful Work Environment always in fear of losing job.
Assembly Worker (Former Employee), Machesney Park, ILJuly 11, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: only 1 break during 8 hour day
Most days start off well but by the end of the day it gets kind of hectic. My Co Workers were great. I learned that honesty is not the best policy at parker. Most enjoyable part of my parker experience was having sundays off. The hardest part of my job was taking care of co workers who don't have determination to learn and keep up with what is going – more... on. – less

Productive place with lots of committees for the employees
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Batesville, MSMarch 31, 2013
Pros: air conditioning, free gatorade during summer
Cons: short breaks and designated smoking area on other side of parking lot.
I have learned alot working at this company and feel I have matured a lot since I first started working here. The Supervisors are great! The hardest part of the job is the obtaining goal every day when your relying on machines that do not always work the same everyday. The enjoyable part of work is the co-workers we are like a little family especially – more... in my department. There is a lot of changes going on currently and a lot of cutbacks placing a hold on moving up. – less

Do not work here!
Financial Services Rep (Former Employee), Denver, COJuly 30, 2012
Pros: the chance to help people with their finances in a meaningful way.
Cons: the management doesn't expect you to last so they don't do much to encourage you.
Basically, they exploit there financial reps. for contacts. Out of 15 - 20 new reps., I was the only one that lasted longer than a year before finally getting burned-out.

I loved the actually work I was doing. I tried to continue despite the way we were treated. Ultimately, I quit for my own mental well-being.

Pros: sense of achievement.
Cons: regular night shifts.
CNC Setter responsible for the setting and the operation of 3 CNC Lathes within the hydraulics industry. Whilst there I had training on health and safety, LEAN manufacturing and cost reduction. I was not responsible for any staff below me and I reported to my line manager on a regular basis. I worked within a friendly team and also when required on – more... my own. The hardest part of the role was the regular night shifts however the sense of achievement I gained from producing work accurately and on time made the role more enjoyable. – less
