Written by Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) from Milton, ON on 1 June 2020
Parker is an okay company. They seem to spend money where they don't need to. Don't expect to be promoted very easily. They keep new people and get rid of senior employees when it comes to letting employees go. They don't listen to ideas or follow through with ideas from employees that are actually doing the work.
