    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin.

    Interview

    The interview was a four person panel. The collection of supervisors and HR personnel had a very conversational tone. The interview was not tense. Questions were fairly boilerplate and common. Did go into some detail about the position. I personally had a successful interview which was followed by a take-home personality test(PAR). It would appear the personality test hold a lot of weight. Do not take it lightly. Analyze every single because there will be a 3rd party company that will analyze every single answer. Overall a good experience in what appears to be a good company with good people.

    Contract Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    The person who was going to be my immediate manager was late to the interview by about 30 minutes. I met with three others and a human resources person. The interview was mostly conversational and I do not remember there being any really difficult questions. I sat down at a table in a conference room. The human resources person sat next to me and three others sat across the table. When the manager who was to be a supervisor finally arrived, the interview was almost complete. This type of behavior was not uncommon by other individuals working in the company. I should have taken the lax nature of the interview as a sign.

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin (Irvine, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is one that is simple to say the least. If one were to stick to the basics of strengths, weaknesses, and why you want the position, then you will be fine. There is no doubt that this company is looking for someone to do the job and to do it well, not for someone that is going to lead the people of tomorrow.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were rather simple. If I were to state a question with the most difficulty it would be coming up with a scenario where you resolved a conflict or how you reacted to both parties involved.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I would have anyone that gets an offer to ask for more, seeing is that any company that likes to make money will try to give you less initially.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin (Toler, KY) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview by applying through career services. Interview, through general conversation and looking at my resume, that I may be interested in another position they had. Got called by a couple days later for the phone interview. I was interviewed by a panel of directors. Very very behavioral based questions. Think they wanted some one with more experience. I'm only entry level. Overall not too bad. About an hour over the phone.

    Typical initial phone screen followed by an in-person interview to gauge soft skills and intellectual curiosity. No technical questions were asked during in-person interview, probably because the software development internship program was only 1 year old.
