Not really for me
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Redmond, WAAugust 12, 2013
Advertises a work to hire recruitment, but it seems to be pretty rare that this happens. This may be for you if you like variety to see what you may like to do in the future, but they cut me from my job a few weeks before I was eligible for insurance.

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 on.

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 in my department. There is a lot of changes going on currently and a lot of cutbacks placing a hold on moving up.

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.
