I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Whirlpool (Cleveland, TN).
The team lead chooses who they want to Interview. A panel Holds the interview and "grades" your answers according to how they think you answered. Answers do not have to be true. Just make it up. Advice given was to practice answering questions from a handbook given to me as my job experience and qualifications play a minor role in getting offered the job.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Whirlpool.
As part of an internship before my senior year, I interviewed with the intern manager/recruiter. They were typical behavioral type questions. I'm not sure how the manager liked me since earlier in the summer I (even after reading the emails multiple times) didn't follow their directions exactly.

HR screening interview first, wait for about 2 weeks, then a phone interview from the hiring manager. HR interview asked questions about visa status, project preference, available time to start the job and the pay range for the position. The phone interview from the hiring managers asked questions mainly based on the resume. Get familiar with your own resume before the phone call will be fine. Get an onsite interview after about 2 weeks. I will set the answer to the following question to "Yes, and I accepted" to submit although I haven't finished the onsite interview yet.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Whirlpool (Amana, IA) in December 2014.
I applied online and HR contacted me after 3 weeks and set up an initial interview which was pretty easy. She went over my resume and asked what I did my previous internships. Later next week she confirmed an interview with Hiring Manager in Benton Harbor and other Manager in Amana. I had interview over phone with both the Managers. They wanted to have another interview onsite which happened after like 4 weeks after my phone interview with both Managers. Manager in Amana went over and explained me what the job is all about and went over my resume and asked few questions. The onsite interview went for almost over an hour. They took 5-6 weeks after my final interview to let me know, I was selected for the job and had an offer in two days. The process of hiring really depends on how fast the manager wants to fills the position. In some cases, they might have to take lot of approvals before they bring you on board.

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks – interviewed at Whirlpool (Knoxville, TN) in December 2014.
Interview took about an hour. Spoke with 2 groups of 3 people and each asked questions off of a sheet of paper. It was very scripted and no questions were that difficult. After the interview it took about 40 days to hear anything back from them. It was a long and dragged out process.
