    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My boss was a great mentor. He taught me how to be the best I could be. He created a fun and challenging career for me.

    Cons

    Management did not treat all customers the same. We were told not to spend too much time with what management called Z customers. i thought that is wrong. All customers should be treated with the highest level of customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are a lots of good people and opportunity to learn about my job and my roles based on my assignments. People are helpful.

    Cons

    I do not allowed to attend any type of "pay training" like "full time". I wish I can get training (that pertain to my assignment) like those full time employee does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the contractor for a training that pertain to their job assignment like full time employee. The knowledge to do the job will pay off the investment.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked in the HR department in Morton and the training and opportunities to advance or take on more responsibilities were great! My boss was awesome and always willing to teach me and help me set and reach my goals. She was always open to ideas and suggestions and willing to try new things. Employee incentives and recognition programs were top notch. I also liked the fact that for the most part everyone worked together as a team.

    Cons

    Sad, but true, I honestly can't think of anything that actually pertained to me.

    Former Employee - Design Engineer Intern  in  Irvine, CA
    Former Employee - Design Engineer Intern in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Parker Hannifin as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great compensation for an intern.
    - Heavy involvement with actual detailed engineering work. Very little menial tasks that are often expected of interns.
    - Lots of networking opportunities with clients and vendors.

    Cons

    - Given the great level of confidence placed on interns, it can be very easy to acquire the same workload as a full-time engineer while still attending school full-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really, perhaps offer more training opportunities to interns and co-ops.
