    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A co-op position at Whirlpool Amana provided a challenging and rewarding experience. Hands on learning was available in every situation and I was treated with fairness and respect by the older employees.

    Cons

    Don't like the heat? The inside of the plant can get up over a hundred degrees on most summer days. Due to the nature of the building there is very poor cooling and it often can be unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge the co-ops with meaningful work. This is what set you aside from other employers.
