Helpful (1)No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whirlpool (Benton Harbor, MI) in April 2013.
Initial screenings were conducted by search firms and both of the resources I worked with were very professional and I would work with them again. The itinerary,travel arrangements, and reimbursement were handled by an HR resource in Texas. This information was very comprehensive and I did not have any problems with travel or reimbursement. The onsite interview there were some logistic issues because there was not a point of contact who knew my interview schedule or could provide me with any details about next steps. The other issue I had was that they had a local city representative show you the area and basically I spent 30 minutes driving around and eating lunch in her car. My interviewers were all very nice and explained the job details to me but none of them expressed why I would want to work there or what my career would be like there.
- Most unexpected questions were regarding my marital status and my family situation. 1 Answer

I interviewed at Whirlpool in March 2013.
Submitted application online. Got contacted after two months for a Skype interview. The interview lasted about 1 hour (general questions about the company, motivation to join, situations from the past). The recruiter has never got back with the promised feedback after the interview. Neither the recruiter nor the scheduling person answered emails about application status.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whirlpool (Chicago, IL) in November 2012.
Good process, found by a recruiter, interview was typical. Questions focus on previous work experience, with lots of examples. Be prepared to discuss previous success, learning moments, mistakes you've learned from, leadership characteristics, etc.
- It wasn't a specific question, but it seemed to be a round robin of the same question worded different ways. Bottom line is... come with a list of examples of things you have done in the past that demonstrates your strengths in a number of differing capacities. Answer Question
Offer was good, and fair... did not negotiate.
