    Pros

    Parker creates a positive culture with focus on high performing teams. They also understand that people have lives outside of work, and provide much flexibility.

    Cons

    Parker’s corporate structure can create confusion and cause duplication of efforts for very similar initiatives. It takes time to understand everything Parker can do.

    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.
