    Pros

    I struggled with finding a property that would meet my taste and needs. My boss was considerate in allowing me the time to work from home and the time to get transitioned. He really exemplified "Moments That Matter" and upheld what a true quality experience means to a new hire.

    Cons

    Finding a home for lease in a small area.

    Great people, very family oriented. Very flexible, if I had to work from home there were never any issues. Very supportive group.

    No complaints, managers care about their employees, and recognize hard work. I have always felt appreciated and awarded when putting in extra effort.

    Pros

    You acquire alot of skills. Great training in different areas. And get great discounts on products. Great experience.

    Cons

    Extremely hot and some of the people are hard to get along with. Have to walk far distances just to get the the bathroom and work stations.

    Advice to Management

    Get more fans that work or air condition the whole building. Build in some closer restrooms. More ice and water machines.

    Pros

    The motto, "There's no right way to do a wrong thing" is not just a flag to wave but a core belief at Whirlpool. Does Whirlpool make mistakes? Certainly. Do they tolerate unethical, disrespectful, or discriminatory behavior? Certainly not. I also love the small town community in BH, MI.

    Cons

    Whirlpool has traditionally been averse to risk, which is a double-edged blade. On one side, it has led Whirlpool to 100+ years of success; on the other side, that aversion to risk can lead to a different risk, the risk of not taking action quickly enough.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Whirlpool is moving in the right direction. I believe the culture of the company is going in the right direction, and the strategic priorities are based on sound principles.
