    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Parker Hannifin in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Was first contacted for a phone interview. This was the standard phone screening to see if you would be qualified for the second round. For the second round I was flown out to Cleveland, OH. The interview was a two day process with an informal dinner the night before and an intense session of interviews the day after. The second day consisted of an educational power point on the different divisions and further information on Parker then a group activity, then 6 rounds of 30 minute interviews with a break in the middle. Overall was a great experience.

    I applied online – interviewed at Parker Hannifin.

    Interview Details

    I received a call back about one week after I applied for the position. The interview was set up for the upcoming week. I was interviewed by four people. They took turns asking me questions. Some of the questions were more difficult than others, but the most difficult ones seemed like a test to see how you respond to adversity. Everything was handled very professionally.

    I applied online – interviewed at Parker Hannifin.

    Interview Details

    I found the job description on their website and was called for an initial phone interview after three weeks. The interview questions were very straight forward and a part of it concentrated on extra curricular activities too, analyzing the leadership abilities. The phone interview was a conference call, with two of the project engineers.

    Interview Questions
    • Many of the questions were as expected, one of them was, what steps did you take when there was a conflict between you and your teammates ?   Answer Question

    Hiring process took forever. It took over four weeks from the time I applied to the time I heard from the company. Then there was a phone interview and two more weeks before I had a face to face. Once there however it went smoothly and a job offer was very quick after.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moncks Corner, SC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Parker Hannifin.

    Interview Details

    Most people are now hired through a temp agency, before being hired. As with other companies, it takes too long to become a Parker employee. Parker has lost several really good temps due to taking too long to hire them as permanent employyes. The drug test and the background checks are good.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not have any problems with my interview and was hired immediately, but that is probably not the way it is now.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate for the people that actually do the hands on work. Your prior experience and the amount of money you save the company are never factored into raises either. The result is that a lot of good suggestions are no longer presented to management.

    Senior Customer Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Parker Hannifin in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Senior Customer Quality Engineer - Parker Hannifin HSD in Kalamazoo. Overall the process was a bit disappointing. During the initial phone interview it was communicated to me that the position would be a lateral move salary wise. I communicated how I was looking for the next step up in my career and thought that would be the end of the process. A short time later I received an email asking if I wanted to come up for an interview. I again communicated my concerns about salary and was told they could work something out if I was the right fit. The interview was a group discussion with 4 hiring managers / employees. It went well enough however only lasted about 45 minutes. There was no plant tour or anything else. Seemed like there would have been more to it considering I drove 4 hrs to get there. I was given a PAR booklet (A personality test) that took about 6 hrs to complete and send in. They said they were very motivated to make a decision in the next few weeks and would let me know. After a number of follow up calls / emails all initiated by me I finally got a call on April 18th (almost 45 days after my interview) asking if I was interested in an offer at a lateral, however no actual numbers were discussed. I said I would like to see an offer and they said they would have one in a few days. On May 2nd (14 days) I received a call saying they could not offer me the position at even a lateral salary wise because it was not in-line with others in that role. Overall the process was disappointing. I can understand if my salary expectations are not in line with what is offed but I would have rather have ended it there instead of wasting time only to circle back to that road block later.

    Interview Questions
    • Very standard interview questions. The PAR (personality test) was VERY involved and took a lot of time to complete.   Answer Question
