    What challenges do you face in your work? We have the unique challenge of designing products for multiple brands in the Whirlpool Corporation portfolio. This means that one decision can impact several other brands at the manufacturing level, so the impact of a new design choice must also be carefully evaluated from a manufacturing and assembly perspective.

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.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Findlay, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (Findlay, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Came through externship with the company and the interview was over the phone. Very casual and professional, and a speedy reply for when I got the job. Went through two interviews total for two different positions with Whirlpool and one I received an offer, the other I was rudely denied. Overall great process with the opportunity that presented itself.
