I learned how to better treat employees
Manual and CNC Lathe Machinist (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXMarch 31, 2014
Because of poor management, I was able to better serve my employees as a supervisor. I was mistreated along with coworkers. Due to mismanagement, I became a better employee and supervisor for other employers.

Do nothing management, double standard management, lazy management
Engineer (Former Employee), Moncks Corner, SCMarch 29, 2014
Pros: heath benefits are fair
Cons: bad lazy management, hostile work environment, production folks waste time texting on phone playing videos games
Hostile work environment. Supervisors and managers allowed to yell at and intimidate engineers and workers. Management have their little clicks. If you are in the click you are good. Managers and supervisor support each other in a non-spoken code I got your back and I will not let you fail even when you made the mistake or wrong decision. So when an – more... associate disagrees then the management circle the wagons and start the intimidation tactics of workers and engineers. Management does nothing to solve problems, just blames engineers. Managers are good at assigning, blaming and loading up work on coworkers/engineers. Unfair when given out bonus shares, saying you have to do something special, but giving others shares just for showing up, the click factor and used as hostility towards those that management dislikes. – less

Unproductive workplace with no advancement oppotunity
Test Engineer (Former Employee), Morton, ILMarch 22, 2014
Originally owned by a Canadian company. Parker had just recently bought out this company before I left. While I was there management seemed to be in disarray. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with.

Loved it !
Department Lead (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHMarch 2, 2014
Pros: special events and celebrations through out the year. located very close to home.
Cons: todays competitive economy. life happens
I advanced my skills, knowledge, and put it all to good use. While continually making improvement by spearheaded projects, I had a very great working repore with my employees and management! I loved the open door policy, which made it easy to deal with all issues and new ideas! I could always count on management with their support when needed. My operators – more... never hesitated to ask questions and perform the tasked assigned to them. We were very team oriented. Accomplishing goals and then setting new ones! Soaring to continually keep the customers happy!

Unfortunately, my job was eliminated due to downsizing with todays economy and overseas competition. These are things that happen in life that can not be controlled.

With that being said................I am looking for a new home to be able to achieve world class productivity and have the same pride I did at Parker! – less

A mixed internship
Intern (Former Employee), Batesville, MSFebruary 15, 2014
Being an internship, of course there weren't opportunities for advancement before graduation or much compensation. My internship was extended to 2 years from one until budget caused my layoff so they had some flexibility and appreciation of my efforts.

The people were pleasant to work with and I was supported when I expanded my skills to take up CAD – more... drawing of production prints. Minor mechanical improvements were used by the toolsetters and my suggestions were seriously considered by engineers.

The production employees were enough set in their ways to make fixing problems in their habits very difficult. Perhaps that is why management and the engineering department have been replaced since I was there, trying to find leadership to take control of a marginally profitable plant. – less

Deburring (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: good administration
Cons: reduced space
A typical day at work would include meetings in the morning to encourage the workers. There was always harmony and cooperation between co-workers, never arguing or disagreements. The hardest part of the job was working on big manifolds since they were complicated and delicate parts to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job was lunch time because – more... we'd all get together to eat and talk about experiences in the job or in our life. – less
