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

Pros

-Lots of autonomy
-Very, very intelligent, humble people
-Lighthearted staff
-People get their work done and then help others to finish their work
-Amazing investment in their interns
-Would intern again in a heartbeat
-Great vacation town

Cons

-Full-time offer requires moving anywhere with only last second information
-You have little to no control over where you live as a Sales Development Representative
-Corporate is located in a town not suited for the younger crowd who needs more to do than eat at the same 7 restaurants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the horizontal hierarchy. It allows your interns to feel free to ask you for input. I had no issues with Management.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    insurance benefits and 401(k) for those with hired in the right time frame.

    Cons

    Does not follow the employee handbook guidelines. Favoritism. If you dress a certain way (showing a lot of skin, etc.) you are treated better and get the job you want over those with seniority. Doesn't offer 401(k) opportunities to newer employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate the reasons for new and temporary employees getting promotions. Check into the fact that the people getting these jobs are dating other advisors or are relatives (by marriage or otherwise).

    In 3 years I found this place to work to be all about politics, and very little for employees

    I worked at Whirlpool full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Its a job that if you can survive long enough, you might make enough money to put some food on the table

    Cons

    Management always looks for way to discipline or terminate their employees while dragging them under the short bus so to speak. You are supposed to work to live, not live to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your facts straight, stop trying to pull the discriminatory card, and remember that the employees work for you. If you want a good company, then treat the employees good. Otherwise you will get negative feedback, unhappy workers, and less of a work force to push your product out the door. Which in turn, will mean you will lose your job. If you don't want to lose your job, then get your act together, and treat the employees better.
