    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (Less than a year)


    Great supervisors. Chill environment (on 2nd shift) Nice people (only 2nd shift) good pay starting off if you need the money. In your own space. No customers.


    When it gets hot it's gets really hot. A lot of people tell on others which feels like I was in elementary. No phones or headphones. Loud environment. You get very dirty.

    Advice to Management

    Private situations should be kept private. The whole plant shouldn't know someone's business.

    EHS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, AZ
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker Hannifin (Glendale, AZ) in August 2017.


    The interview process was conducted professionally and thoroughly. It consisted of a phone interview with Corporate HR. Then a panel interview at the location. From there I interviewed with two levels of management (phone interviews). Division manager and then Group manager. Interviews were appropriate for the position. Overall, I was impressed with Parker Hannifin and would recommend checking them out. Everyone I interacted with was very helpful, friendly and came across as highly competent. The only reason I declined their offer was due to another job offer that was slightly better.

    Posted by Parker Global Team on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 They say you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. That is, unless you work at Parker. When beginning the Parker Appliance Company 100 years ago, Art Parker understood that it's the strength of individuals growing together and working toward a common goal that would build and sustain the Parker "family" of employees.
