Our Industry Firsts Come From Putting People First

We never let our passion for helping create today’s special moments distract us from empowering even more purposeful innovations. We understand that innovation takes its first step backward when it stops moving forward. That’s why we’ll never stop pursuing new products that resonate with the people who use them. We work tirelessly to create exceptional design and purposeful technology that blends into the home rather than stands out in a house. 

For more than a century, we’ve been innovating and implementing designs that free up more time for what’s important. From the first washing machine to the first stand mixer to the first laundry pair with steam cycles, innovation is second nature to us and essential to our passion. We’re extremely proud of our history of innovation, but we believe our greatest accomplishments are yet to come.

    Cons

    Insurance coverage could be stronger; however, the company does reward healthy behavior.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation.

    Interview

    The human resources department at Whirlpool is very unprofessional. I advanced several steps in an interview, only to have the recruiter go completely silent. I followed up with a few emails asking if I was no longer in the running. The least thing this incompetent group could have done is take thirty seconds out of their day to say I was no longer being considered. To make matters worse, I was sent a survey asking to discuss my interview experience. For such a large and respected company, the recruiting department lacks common decency. Learn to follow up with candidates, because they (like me) probably spent time preparing for this interview. If this is how they treat applicants, I am now happy I didn't get the job to see how they treat their employees.
