My experience with Parker was good i enjoyed the hour and the people that i work with. I had a chance to learn different jobs so that i might could advance in one day with a little more training the management was not that great but we had a job to do regardless..the work culture could have been a little better but through it all it was fair.there was not any thing that was so hard about any of the jobs if you was train right. I guess i can say for the most of us that the short time that we work for this company is that the most enjoyable was when we had a chance to enjoy some time off to be with family because sometime we put in a lot of hours.
Freelance Designer (Former Employee) – Morton, IL – May 23, 2018
Freelance work for this company was amazing opportunity to build up my skills. They allowed me to grow with their company. They were fast on getting back to me if I needed to resend something or feedback.
Service associate (Former Employee) – Greenfield, TN – May 21, 2018
Run orders according to schedule. I learned how to manage time better. I was in direct contact with management and they try to assist you in any way they can. They had me setting up machines and instructing people how and when to do their jobs. The people I worked with was the most enjoyable part of being at Parker.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 16, 2018
As this job may be stressful at tiimes, it is a very great company to work for. Its fast paced, and you will be able to get overtime. I ran the materials department by myself and became a backup lead 3 months after I started.
Incoming Quality Tech Calibration Tech (Current Employee) – Haverhill, MA – May 16, 2018
Haverhill is a place filled with long term employee's that whine and complain about everything. The new employee's are fresh out of college and have no clue on how the working world revolves The run to HR over everything. This place is a pit summer time it's more then 100° in the building. Good luck if you decide to take a job in Haverhill.
The boss is lazy. Management only care about the bottom line
The boss is lazy. The supply quality engineer will stab you in the back

IT technical Associate (Former Employee) – Red Oak, IA – May 11, 2018
I loved the plant I worked at and the position was very neeed. Was disliked by corporate manager who was severely out of touch, let go due to cut backs for position to be re-opened 1.5 years later. Didn't even apply had 0 interest in working in that corporate environment. Loved my direct manager and my plant manager everyone above that was a typical corporate villian!
Electronics Assembler (Former Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – May 11, 2018
Very poor management. A lot of mandatory overtime because management doesn't know how to plan anything around there. Not much opportunity for advancement. Never know where you are going to be working at which may be good for some people who like to move around. Company is moving Illinois. All the plants seems to slowly be shutting down and moving production to Mexico.
Get rewarded for turning in ideas to improve production, and rewarded for safety.
UPS line packer (Former Employee) – Waterville, OH – May 8, 2018
A typical day at consisted of pulling orders based off ship-sets. The ship-sets were prioritized by deadline times. There were 5 deadlines on 2nd shift. I learned additional management skills with the company after advancement. The culture is extremely poor most employees have been there for 8+ years and do not like to train new people. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the negativity from veteran employees. Management is extremely inconsistent 5 supervisors in 5 years most only staying 6 months.
