Long work hours everyday. One of the most underpaid jobs I have had. No life

Long work hours in preform-Nac Large. Work everyday of the week plus weekends. One of the least paying jobs I have worked on. Definitely underpaid. In the summer time you work in extremely hot conditions. Most days are over 100 degrees in temperature. There are some job orders that are called viton when handforming you cannot have any air circulation.


It’s a job.


Short breaks, No life, You work long hours and everyday of the week and weekends in Preform-Nac Large

Bad management and extremely negative culture

You can be promoted to management but then you will be hated by hourly staff. Very Very Poor training. Talk about safety first but won’t fund safety. Preach compassion and other virtues, but don’t know how to practice them. Tell you it is a family oriented business, but ultimately your just a body filling a position to get the numbers they want. Pay isn’t competitive. There is better out there, but if you need a job, that’s what they offer.

They treat there employees wrong. They pretend to you L.E.AN. But don’t know how to follow things thru. The materials manager doesn’t know how to keep material in stock or know how to keep up with inventory. They show favoritism to Certain races. And the systems there using is so out dated. The warehouse is burning up while the front is cool. Just a horrible place


Bad management, broken promises, under paid

Share your experience to help others

Great on paper, but this is why you avoid 'fast-paced' companies

Pros: the benefits and people are top for the area.Cons:Machinists / Operators / Assembly: Because the Supply Chain is broken, you're sent home on Wednesday and then come into work Saturday/Sunday. Specific to the role:It doesn't matter if they call this role a buyer , Purchasing Specialist , or Sourcing Specialist : you're basically doing the (purchasing) work of three-four positions.There are emergencies created by a lack of fundamentals and general carelessness across the organization.Management is unsupportive. There are downright rude personalities. No opportunity for career advancement unless you move your family or change departments.Long story short: This isn’t a job that makes you happy, it’s one that pays the bills.

Overall slightly above average place to work

Office culture is meh. There are some really nice and helpful people that work there but also some that are only out for themselves. Corporate disconnect to individual and division needs. Micromanagement is somewhat manageable and mostly work independently. Pay is decent.

Ok place to work, pays ok.

For what you have to do you are paid well at Parker. The job is very boring. The “lean” system is way too lean, tons and tons of back orders due to not having the parts you need in stock.

Safe clean environment to work at. New friendships are made.

I really enjoyed working for Parker Hannifin. The benefits are great. I was having transportation problems at the time. But their working with me with a second chance. I'm proud to be working for a great such as Parker Hannifin.

They like to pretend they care about their employees. Not the case.

They like to lay people off when it suits them, but then want to hire temps instead of calling back who they laid off. Management won't listen to anything you have to say and will employ a Kaisen to help them when they can't figure stuff out.

Not very fun , if you can settle with just having a job , than this is a job for you

Managers are the only ones who get rewarded , they don’t say it directly but you are expected to work overtime. They only care about numbers, poor quality


If you don’t have a life they do have overtime


No raises

Efficiency is king

Working as a setup at parker wasn't all bad. The pay is decent, but as with any manufacturing position, expect to work overtime and not have much of a choice or way to get out if it.

Little opportunity for long term advancement

The work itself is fine and people are very nice, however, the company would rather hire from outside than promote from within. This led to a constant revolving door effect which has clearly hampered long-term goals and cohesive vision. Only consider it as a stepping stone for your career, better pay with less stress can be had elsewhere.


Friendly Coworkers


Management missing deadlines

Used to be a great place to work

Used to be a great place to work, run like a family business with a decentralized mentality, company is now being run like a PE holding firm squeezing SG&A costs and cutting divisions and groups giving everyone more work, less focus, less work life balance, more stress. The people that can cut it are the ones whom are solely money motivated.

Worst place to work ever.

This place made me dread going to work each day. Absolutely the worst job I’ve ever had. Management from the top down was the most awful of any place I’ve ever worked. Ed was the worst. Stay away if you can.


Breaks are too short need to be 15 min and lunches should be an hour.

Good Company

Typical factory work. Easy job, pay was decent for what the job was. Worked a lot of weekends during my time with the company. Overall, there are a lot of tenured folks that work here.

Great company for growth

Many opportunities for growth within the company but not much work between different departments. Really heavy on lean with an emphasis on continuous improvement.

Great benefits package. Terrible warehouse environment for minorities.

Mandatory overtime (10 hour days) during last week of the month. Excessive micro-management. Too many "chiefs". Preferrential treatment runs rampant.

Mandatory overtime. Ladies there are full of drama. They’re also very strict what we wear. It was also hard to call off. They overwork you for very little pay, on top of that, they’re cheap with stuff we needed for the job. For example, they gave me one 2 pairs of gloves for the 3 months I worked there. The cheap gloves that Amazon gives their employees every day if needed.

Lots of growth

There is alot of growth but not much vision or direction to get there. Lots of pressure and demand from outside customers to perform without the tools or resources to do so.


Great people and benefits


No culture or direction
