Productive and interest in succeeding
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

Facility manager/support departments supervisor (Former Employee), Chetek, WIFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: clean, organized safe work environment
Cons: poor work/life balance
Excellent work environment.
Internal training in lean was productive and helpful to meeting the bottom line.
Far too many non productive meetings causing long hours for managers and supervisors. Expectations for salaried employees was far above normal/reasonable expectations. This is a divisional issue as expectations and culture vary greatly between – more... divisions.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with hourly employees, they truely cared about their performance and the performance of the company. – less

Mechanical Engineer, Contractor (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXJanuary 25, 2014
At Parker you feel you are with your family. At Parker you would enjoy your work because of the very nice people around you. Also, I've learned a lot more about new aerospacial products that I haven't dealt with before. Here, I gained many new friends that make you feel that you're working for your own home and family.

Nice Place to Work With Exceptions
Production Planner, Specialist (Former Employee), Irvine, CAJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: good benefits and security
Cons: weak management
No balance of life at Parker. Nothing but work. I found the management style to be indifferent to the employee's welfare. There didn't seem to be much appreciation for what I'd contributed but more for what I apparently didn't do.

Assist in development of lean production schedule (Current Employee), Lynchburg, VAJanuary 10, 2014
I've been an intern at Parker for about five months. Everyone from the management to the operators on the production floor is friendly. I've had the opportunity to step up from book and classwork knowledge to an actual business where decisions have real consequences and efforts have more tangible results. It's been a great learning experience.

HR duties for Chas Plant
Human Resource Senior Administrator (Former Employee), Charleston, SCJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: large company with good benefits
Cons: large company with headquarters in another state
Handled all HR, benefits, worker's compensation and safety for a workforce of 45 employees.

Enjoyed working with all the employees in a different environment for welders. Most welders work in a dirty environment but at this plant all work was done in a clean environment due to product produced.

Hardest part is working for a global company with headquarters – more... in another state with different laws and culture. – less
