Pros
Fair Pay, Great coworkers

terrible shift schedules and weak management team

Productive, action packed workplace (Maintenance department)
Manufacturing Engineering Student (Co-op) (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON6 September 2017
The atmosphere is very friendly and inclusive which is a great benefit to start a new position with. There is constantly something going on so you'll always have work on your desk but that's expected when it comes to maintaining a 24/7 operating plant. With the help of your smart coworkers and reliable supervision, Mother Parker's is definitely a good workplace I would recommend to anyone looking at the manufacturing/production work environment.

As a 4-month co-op student, a typical day involved creating reports, complicated spreadsheets and combing over work orders, machine manuals and the parts database. You'll be given the guidance you need to complete your tasks but expect a fast-paced workflow and differing deadlines you'll have to prioritize to complete.
Pros
Free lunches, great environment, laid-back but hardworking atmosphere
Cons
May be stressful to start, fast-paced, not for everyone

its ok for temporary work
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON1 September 2017
Hired thru Randstad so you are not really a legit MParkers employee. As such you are treated differently so no one really knows you at work. Some employees/supervisors might take advantage of you because of that so be careful. i.e. One time i witnessed employee X and supervisor Y abusing break times and so I had to do 2x work than usual. Hours are long and you are on your feet all the time and will be tiring. Pay is also not the greatest. Overall, I would say if your desperate for some extra coin I would work here. There are certainly better warehouse jobs that pay better and have benefits.
Pros
free coffee and tea
Cons
long hours, might have lazy employees and supervisors

Severe shift in management to inexperienced and know it all. Unwilling.ro accept new ideas and take ideas for their own. Total negativity instead of building they beat people down and lie to suit their needs.

No regards for mental health or work life balance.

Free coffee

Too numerous to mention
