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

    Pros

    Paid breaks, heaters, air condition, cafe inside building, training

    Cons

    Get attitude from TLs and people on the Line, you have 2weeks of training and it gets extended when you are pulled from the line. Kelly's (the temp agency they brought in) only gives you 3 call off and points you when they send you to the hospital. The place you on opposite requested shifts. So if you have a family I would not recommend this job. So if you asked for mornings because you have kids they will either give you evenings or night shift

    Advice to Management

    With Kelly's services, extend the days to at least 5. Some people actually have health problems and also DONT FIRE ANYONE THAT IS ON WORKMANS COMP!
