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.

    Whirlpool has their own health insurance which they have managed through a third party (HealthScope). This is very basic coverage with high deductibles. The coverage is not very good compared to other companies healthcare where I have worked for the high monthly price in addition to a high deductible. It is nearly impossible to get documentation on the coverage even once you are working at Whirlpool and if you call the third party you will get different answers. Whirlpool as ZERO human resource personnel who will answer questions about healthcare. In addition, they frequently change their healthcare network so you may have to change doctors. Whirlpool matches dollar for dollar for the first 3% of your salary contributed to 401k and fifty cents to the dollar on the next 2% of the your salary. Whirlpool offers 12 weeks of maternity leave and 4 weeks for paternity leave. Whirlpool is very hit or miss on whether an employee can work from home. They frequently say they have no problem with employees working from home but then upper management will come through and say no one is working because they aren't at their desks in the office. Whirlpool offers summer hours between Memorial Day and Labor Day. They allow you to work 9 hour Monday - Thursday and then work a half day Friday which is nice. In general, Whirlpool offers the minimum benefits and provides very little to no documentation on any of their benefits. It is frequently up to the employee to figure it out.

    Strong 401k employer contribution at 7% with good investment options through Vanguard. Medical insurance ok, with low premiums in High Deductible Health Plan and $2,400 employee contribution to HSA. Very nice improvement to offer maternity and paternity leave. Fantastic childcare option onsite at headquarters.

    The best things are 401K and stock options, Vacation and sick pay is wonderful. Medical and dental is a little bit more costly then I would like to see but not as bad as other companies I have worked for.
