A waste of two years.
PRODUCT SUPPORT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CADecember 11, 2018
I needed something while going back to school, and boy did a find a job... Low pay, hard work, long hours, stressful coworkers and managers. Sometimes I would have to work outside in the sun for hours, mandatory with pants, using old and slow tools because of budget concerns. It is almost impossible to advance. There were a couple of a good coworkers that you could possibly engage in thoughtful conversation with for a few minutes out of the day. That was about it. The fact that I was a temporary employee for two years with no real benefits or raises made it terrible. I'm glad I'm finally done with my degree and moving forward, hopefully never to be in a position like that again.
Pros
Overtime, not always micro-managed
Cons
Overtime is unspokenly mandatory, high stress/high pace

Disconnected
MACHINIST/MOLD MAKER (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJanuary 18, 2019
I enjoyed my time there half the time I was there. It really changed once a new manager was hired. Also the plant manager runs the place as a dictator and is quick to tell people they aren’t doing their jobs well with no real ideas in ways to improve, you can’t win with him. What really turned me off was the win strategy they have and the ideas of having empowered employees who have a voice, hardly the case there. Also no room for advancement and they don’t put anything towards employees advancing in their careers or improving. In fact they were trying to take away responsibilities. The disconnect from management to employees is bad and created a poisonous environment. Used to be a great pace to work, but turned into a secretive environment that felt like you couldn’t trust people around there. Their ability to find replacements and train people who are coming is laughable, don’t have much hope for the current regime there.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Not a place to grow your skills, no employee voice, can’t be trusted.

Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Davenport, IAFebruary 13, 2019
The job itself is fun. The processes and all are very simple. However there is a extreme lack of communication. Managers in my personal experience on my shift are not concerned about employees needs only thing they care about it quantity of pieces built. No matter the issues that you may face your effeciency score is affected and your constantly down talked for poor efeenciancy. My training was fairly medioker and unrelated this to managers and now re training was done. However there is plenty of hours to work the benefits are great pay is highly competitive.
Pros
Pay, benefits, vacation time
Cons
Lack of communication, poor equipment, poor management

An okay job to start out at
ELECTRO/MECHANICAL ASSEMBLER (Former Employee) –  Irwin, PAJanuary 19, 2019
Pay isn't commensurate with skill sets required. No sick days are allocated to the blue collar employees. If you get sick and need to take time off, your option is to take an unpaid day or to use a vacation day. Not a place that affords much upward mobility to a white collar position.

Very unorganized with lots of slack in the supply chain. Individual effort raises are partially based on productivity, so supply chain issues indirectly affect assembly employees.

Production manager during my time at this facility spent minimal time on the floor. The andon light could be blinking red for most of the day without any contingency actions taken by the manager.

Upward mobility within the assembly line is also limited.
Pros
Paid lunch breaks/Daylight only shift for assembly/good employee discounts
Cons
No paid sick leave/pay isn't commensurate with work.

Poor Management
Lathe Cut Operator Grade 5 (Current Employee) –  Gothenburg, NENovember 11, 2018
The management is always changing. The current manager does not like confrontation and will avoid it at all cost. No one is held accountable for anything except for missing work. Reviews are always late and HR functions are not complete. Schedule is not accurate all the time.
Pros
Great people to work with, great pay, great benefits, Alot of overtime
Cons
Alot of overtime, no advancement, no opportunities to change shifts

Assembler II (Former Employee) –  Washington, NCDecember 4, 2018
Great company with great benefits. Recently acquired the company I worked for, and things had improved since they purchased. Unfortunately, they decided shut down our location and move all production to their other facilities.

Great benefits, Employee Appreciation perks

Unprofessional Department
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYDecember 22, 2018
More focused on getting work completed but does not have training for their complex computer systems. A lot of pressure from management to catch up on work when some employees knowingly do not carry their own weight, so it falls on ones who do timely work. Some other employees like to tell you what to do or may ne rude and not addressed about their behavior even if management knows. Very unprofessional and do not care about what is going on in your personal life but will act like it. Mandatory over time even though upon hire and the job description do not require it, usually about 6 hours a week working extra hours. Great benefits and pay but only worth it if you like dancing with the devil!
Pros
Free food, benefits, great pay!
Cons
Mandatory over time, no training, focused on getting work done without regard to its employees.

Great place to work
Division Accountant (Former Employee) –  New Hope, MNFebruary 17, 2019
Upper management offered very beneficial daily morning staff meetings to help get the day going in the right direction.
Obtained knowledge, skills, and experience to deliver high performance. Management was proficient in managing relationships and building networks internally and externally. Parker Hannifin's models professional and ethical behavior in all circumstances. Most difficult time which was rarely when their were no days when management did not promote continuous learning and development. I enjoyed the development offered by management to promote continuous learning experience to deliver high performance when achieved Parker Hannifin recognized with Rona. Parker Hannifin is a Great place to work!
Pros
Rona
Cons

Stepping stone
REAPAIR AND OVERHAUL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Ogden, UTNovember 2, 2018
If you have no experience in the aviation industry this could potentially be a good place to start. Equal opportunity does not exist unless you're a woman. Pay is absolutely horrible. There is almost zero opportunity for advancement and the means to get there are unclear to almost non-existent at best. The way they run their temp agency is incredibly unethical. Do not leave the HR office until everything that Jerry Wallace said is written on paper. Management for the R & O Department will lie to your face and do not have your best interest or the customer's at heart. You will never get a thanks or good job, instead just more assignments with no compensation. Parker has become the job you get so you can comfortably look for another.
Pros
Always work to do
Cons
Horrible management and pay

Pros

Cons

Great benefits, but very old-fashioned and not much upper-level diversity.
Marketing Communications Analyst (Former Employee) –  Haverhill, MAFebruary 17, 2019
Parker is a wonderful company, but still very old fashioned in many ways in the way it operates. A lot of things about the company are cultural and the old way (an ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ mentality).
Pros
Great benefits (including tuition reimbursement up to $12, 000 per year).
Cons
Old-fashioned culture and tribal knowledge / sucky training.

Good company, bad culture depending on plant
Multiple Knife Lathe Operator (Former Employee) –  Goshen, INJanuary 28, 2019
Depending on the plant you are hired at depends on the quality of the job. At the Goshen plant the culture is awful and the plant is ousted by other plants so no chance of advancing anywhere.

Benefits, Union

Deluxe assembler (Former Employee) –  Grantsburg, WINovember 2, 2018
I loved my job but it hurt my body. Extremely repetitive and not very ergonomic. Things have changed since I was there but I'm not sure I would want to go back because of repetitive motion injuries that I have not been able to have corrected surgically.
Pros
Good benefits, decent pay
Cons
Short breaks, long hours, very physically demanding

They don’t care about their employees
Machinist Operator (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTOctober 15, 2018
Do not work for Parker unless you have too . The culture thier is horrible and sad . Their culture is to keep production workers in their place with no chance for advancement. With poor work procedures and low standards. all the employees thier are 10 year or more veterans of the company which don’t leave because of the time investment otherwise I feel they would leave if they had less time invested with benefits. because Parker really doesn’t have any positive benefits. Just a paycheck every week
