    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Whirlpool.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Whirlpool (Amana, IA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    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.
