I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

-Very, very intelligent, humble people
-Lighthearted staff
-People get their work done and then help others to finish their work
-Amazing investment in their interns

-Great vacation town

Cons

-Full-time offer requires moving anywhere with only last second information
-You have little to no control over where you live as a Sales Development Representative
-Corporate is located in a town not suited for the younger crowd who needs more to do than eat at the same 7 restaurants.

Advice to Management

Keep the horizontal hierarchy. It allows your interns to feel free to ask you for input. I had no issues with Management.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are the best I've worked with. They have a great leadership development program, and the people willingly invest in others to help grow professionally as well as personally.

    Cons

    The location can be limiting in the winter and during cold weather. Benton Harbor doesn't have a lot to offer for entertainment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pouring knowledge and development into your young employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    insurance benefits and 401(k) for those with hired in the right time frame.

    Cons

    Does not follow the employee handbook guidelines. Favoritism. If you dress a certain way (showing a lot of skin, etc.) you are treated better and get the job you want over those with seniority. Doesn't offer 401(k) opportunities to newer employees.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate the reasons for new and temporary employees getting promotions. Check into the fact that the people getting these jobs are dating other advisors or are relatives (by marriage or otherwise).
