Negative Outlook

I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

paid vacations, health insurance benefits and 401k.

Cons

how dis -satisfied the Advisors are at all times. No appreciation is ever shown, unless its a certain day of the year that they receive their bonus checks. The only way to get to promoted to a higher position, is if you're married to or dating a person high up on the ladder.

Advice to Management

If profit sharing and pensions were once again given to the hourly employees, there would be better quality products put out--they would once again start to care . Also if advisors were to speak to employees for other reasons except to let them know that they're doing something wrong, employee morale would be a lot better.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good for employees that can stay with the job for several years. Temporaries from Kelly start at $10.25 an hour. The average assembler makes $12.40 and the team leaders make $16.50 an hour. The work areas are very clean and organised.

    Cons

    The KitchenAid Hand Mixers are assembled and tested by teams of six workers and one is completed every 30 seconds so you have to concentrate on the job you are assigned so this is not for people that don't have a serious attitude about assembly work.

    Advice to Management

    I am gratefull that Whirpool management brought the Kitchen Aid Hand Mixer production back from China and encourage them to do all Whirlpool production here in our country.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Solid brand with exposure to multiple areas of the business.
    Opportunity to learn process development and process control.

    Cons

    Strategic direction of the company is consistently changing and functional areas do not/cannot align.
    Does not provide leadership development opportunities. Always seeking the next "top talent" without understanding the implications or training required to grow talent.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a path to grow the company and pursue, the continued meeting of bottom lines through cost cutting does not feed innovation or drive talent development. Leadership is touted, but in reality is weak. Take hold of every opportunity to develop junior employees and strategically bring in outside talent, do not use it as standard practice. Stop the continued focus on individual functional area results, actually hold groups accountable for the performance of the shared company goals.
