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.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Whirlpool is a global company that still feels like a small company. The value placed on support of the surrounding community makes me feel good about the company I work for. The investment that Whirlpool makes in ensuring a valuable work/life balance for their employees reinforces that feeling.

    Cons

    As with any midwestern company, trekking in through the snow and adverse weather can be tough during the winter months. That's where the ability to work remote though is a great benefit.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by multiple in person interviews. Mostly situational type questions. The interviewers were polite and did a good job of not leading me to the right answer.
