    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation.

    Interview

    The interview process was behavioral and asked some tricky questions. The first interview was with a manager and the second one was with coworkers that I could possibly be working with. Most of the second interview was me going over my resume and how I can contribute to Whirlpool. It was not too hard, but I would recommend studying up on what Whirlpool does and their different appliances.

I have had a wonderful experience with Whirlpool Corporation thus far and am excited to begin my journey this summer!

    Electrical Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Benton Harbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (Benton Harbor, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took 3 weeks. First one was phone interview and then they called for on site interview. They were interviewing both experienced and non experienced people and obviously selecting the experienced people. I didn't understand why they did that. Moreover after each step (Phone screen) if the result is positive they inform you immediately otherwise they doesn't care about you, they will not inform you unless you ask them.

    Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Benton Harbor, MI
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (Benton Harbor, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    They do a phone interview first, and afterwards they do an in-person interview. They mostly just did basic tests on what the potential employee can do. They do some behavioral interviews then they do technical interviews. The technical interview is a little tricky as how well you do on it plays a role on what job you get. Also the interview process isn't like most places, it is a little easier.

    Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (Benton Harbor, MI).

    Interview

    Took forever. I submitted an application online, 2 weeks later they contacted me for a brief phone interview. 4 weeks later I was brought to Benton Harbor for an in-person interview. 7 weeks after the in-person interview I was offered the position. I had 6 interviews in one day for two positions. Each interview consisted of two current employees and myself. Some interviews were just basic HR questions from people I may or may not be working with, I'm assuming for character assessment. The few interviews I had with my direct colleagues were more challenging, asking specific questions about how I would communicate with them and what type of leadership I would need and could provide.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus recruiting website. I was interning abroad at the time, so I initially had two phone interviews with campus recruiters. My understanding is they don't do this often. The recruiters then referred me to be interviewed by the internship program manager. I had a thirty-minute interview with her. The process was efficient.
