Very Corporate very stressful

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management expectations were high and kept changing therefore it made it difficult for me to complete projects. Its a corporate environment and most of the departments reports to international managers who did not understand the African culture and logistics.

Parker is a very challenging and also fun place to work in. The broad product base and different types of customers with different needs keep you learning more about the industry.

Great company to work for

I enjoyed my working environment at Parker. I had a challenging position which required a fair amount of travel within South Africa and Sub Sahara Africa. Was subjected to very professional technical and motivational training.

Fun workplace

To make sure that on a daily basis everything that's needs to be done for the day is completed. I have learnt so much experience and to always obey your superiors. Management comes first and the workload they give you as at the end of the day you need to keep the customer happy. My fellow co - workers are like my second family as we are one big and happy family that work as a team and give a helping hand to one another. The hardest part is when is month end when everything needs to be done and make sure that all the paper work has been processed for that particularly month. The most enjoyable part is when you have all the right answers for your customers and always making sure that you always makes them happy.
