Employer Summary

Whirlpool offers two comprehensive high deductible health plan options, one includes a Health Savings Account (HSA), which you can take with you wherever life leads you; and the other, a Whirlpool account called an I-Account, that you have access to while you are a Whirlpool employee or retiree. Both accounts are used to help cover your out-of-pocket medical costs.

The Whirlpool vision plan offers a free eye exam as well as an allowance for frames and lenses or contacts through the Vision Service Plan (VSP).

The Whirlpool dental plan offers free preventive care and pays a portion of the cost of other dental expenses, including orthodontia.

Whirlpool helps protect you and your family when the unexpected happens. We cover the cost of short term disability, basic long term disability, and basic life insurance. You also have the option of purchasing additional coverage. These plans offer a cost-effective way to benefit from valuable coverage you might not buy on your own.

We know employees who enjoy the right balance between work life and home life are more productive and effective in both places. That’s why we offer competitive vacation, paid holiday and personal leave policies. Benefits are generally based on years of service with the company. Students beginning their careers with Whirlpool won’t have summers off anymore, but they’ll still have time to pursue hobbies and enjoy time to themselves throughout the year.

The Whirlpool 401(k) plan offers a variety of investment fund choices to give your savings earning power. We provide matching contributions plus a generous contribution whether or not you choose to contribute. What if you leave Whirlpool down the road? You take with you the full value of your contributions, the portion of Whirlpool contributions you own (based on years of service) and any earnings from all investments through the plan.

    The best benefit at Whirlpool is the performance bonus, the worst benefit is our vacation time which is less time off than previous employers

    Great benefits package all-around. Their matching 401k is one of the best that I have encountered. Low premiums and deductibles for health care too.

    Insurance, employee discounts, 401K packages are offered, can't say honestly if they are good or bad compared to other companies, but I've seen worse. They offer new employees 3 weeks, or roughly 120 hours of paid vacation time starting out, though the first year can vary, someone starting in January or February may get less time then someone starting in July or August. Paid holidays are Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. Currently, employees can pick up a 4th week of paid vacation at the 4 year anniversary, a 5th week at their 14 year anniversary, and a 6th week at the 24 year anniversary if they stay with the company that long. They do allow a certain amount of time to be carried over from one year to the next if not used up, or you have the option currently to cash out any unused time at year end.

    401k match is generous. Health insurance is decent. Vacation is standard.

    The worst thing about the benefits package is the deductibles which are very high, there are only 2 plans available and they have the same deductible, the 401k matching is great

    the fact that my benefits package started on day one really put me at ease and made me more motivated

    The Whirlpool benefits package is outstanding. Maybe slightly expensive but it includes almost everything you could wish for. Medical, Dental, Vision, EAP, 401k, Flex working arrangements, adoption benefits, maternity leave for fathers, reimbursement for gym membership, cash incentives for meeting health goals.

    As a Co-op you won't receive many benefits. In some cases you may be able to work over time. The co-op group I was with had a 401k plan, but I don't think this was standard.
