    I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly respectful culture, zero tolerance for any gossips, flexible working schedule. People approach questions with respects. Many have worked here for 30+ years. This is a stable company. Option to have every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Office design looks old fashioned. Requests & process can be slow for answers and updates. Cafeteria food not good but once in awhile if you have no food it’s bearable.

    Advice to Management

    Medical insurance is high. Wish there’s Kaiser HMO insurance option

    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.
