Unreasonable Management but great coworkers
Equipment Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 September 2015
The environment at Mother Parker's is at times unpredictable and stressful. Management is under a great deal of pressure, and this trickles down to lower levels in unnecessary ways. That being said, the people who make up Mother Parker's are truly wonderful. Coworkers help one another to create a strong team work feel, as well as kindly engaging one another and providing professional support.
Pros
Monthly Free Lunch
Cons
Poor Management

Work there with caution.
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga27 August 2015
No doubt it's one of the most well paid manufacturing jobs around- but, if you will be a newcomer there you have to be careful with your working relationship with long time employees. Good luck to you if you have good credentials because not everyone will appreciate what you have. High performance is expected but even if you work your butt out the slightest mistake can cause you your job-EASILY- PRONTO in the blink of an eye just like in a Third World country sweat shop.
Pros
Free coffee, drinks.
Cons
Not all old timers there welcome new faces.
