My boyfriend used to work there and loved it. He regretted leaving there and wishes he didn't. I'm sure he could back on...don't know why he doesn't. But, he said they treated him like family and the work wasn't that bad.

I'm sorry, but there is no possible way you got hired without first going through the temp agency. I don't care if your friend is Jesus himself. I call bull.
I take it you are either a temp or wondering about the place. Either or, it's a nice place to work, but you have to put effort in. To each there own because some of the workers will snitch on you in a millisecond if they don't like you.

A few questions...

Is all of the factory a really dirty environment to work in or is that just for the temps starting out?

How does the overtime work at Parker? Is it all 8hr shifts with Sat/Sun as needed?

Is it a good place for a woman to work? I mean as in not having to lift really heavy objects all day long.

Is there a union there? I'd think not but wanted to ask and be certain.

Serious replies only please.

Why do they pay their temps below average wages when they are a Fortune 500 company making billions a year?

It's not Parker's fault. It's the temp agency.

Highly doubtful because they have workers at other factories that make at least $4.50 more on the hour than what is paid for working at Parker as a temp.

Believe what you want. If people don't like the pay, they can go somewhere else.

It is a fact and people cannot just go somewhere else in this economy. It's not like there are millions of jobs available in Greene Co. or anywhere else for that matter.

Wow....Alot of wishful thinking..Months before you get hired. That's even if you do. 8 to 10 or 12 hrs a day..And some weekends..Depending on the job maybe every weekend..They try really hard to paint a pretty picture though..I will give them credit for that..
