interesting work

Project Engineer (Current Employee)
Benton Harbor, MI

I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 3 years

Proslots of free training. good pay and benefits , friendly people.

Conslong hours, travel to factories from design center. large workload. people shift positions every year so it's hard to build up expertise. Headquarters town is highly racially divided. Life is good for corporate folks but not so much for other people.

Advice to Senior Managementhire more people to get better quality work. Reduce playing of musical chairs with job positions for people. Otherwise, keep up the emphasis on lean, OpEx and other initiatives.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Whirlpool full-time

ProsThe pay, benefits, 401K match, and bonus program are all excellent. You will be challenged every day, but the rewards for meeting those challenges are great! Time off is generous.

ConsI don't believe there are any cons here that don't exist in most large corporation these days.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Amazing people, Amazing company

GSCLDP Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at Whirlpool as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe people are the best I've worked with. They have a great leadership development program, and the people willingly invest in others to help grow professionally as well as personally.

ConsThe location can be limiting in the winter and during cold weather. Benton Harbor doesn't have a lot to offer for entertainment.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pouring knowledge and development into your young employees.

Whirlpool overall was a great company to work for.

GIS Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompany has great integrity and the leading appliance manufacturer in the world. Is excellent at lean manufacturing. Provides salary employees lots of opportunity for career advancement. Invest heavily in training personnel to improve job skills.

ConsIT technology lags due to lack of funding. Has sent too many manufacturing jobs out of the country. Has outsourced or removed too many value-added jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in technology and systems that can benefit manufacturing. There was a trend in the early 2000's where this was done and it was a great benefit to the manufacturing plants, but that was eventually eliminated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
