    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    Get to see many aspects of manufacturing as they have metal stamping, plastics, paint, and etc.
    Upper Management really wants to see you succeed and gives you the tools to do so.

    Cons

    Associates themselves take some warming up to.
    Actually desk/office space is very limited

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

    Pros

    There a good people working here. The management is good to work with. Jobs are not to hard once you learn them.

    Cons

    Takes awhile to make day shift. Traffic is bad in isles. Must watch out for tow motors. Fast pace work in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable. Hourly people ask to get things fixed to only have management tell them that they put in a work order. Problem is no work order was ever submitted

    Pros

    You must be willing to work. Whirlpool is not that conducive to people who don't do well in a team environment, or want to just show up and put minimum effort in. You get what you put in at any job, and Whirlpool is no different, in my opinion. My supervisor and manpower coordinators have been great, and I've been given many unique opportunities due to my "can-do" attitude and willingness to at least try my hardest to learn things.

    Cons

    There's not that many. The only real drawbacks I'm sure are the same in any environment that has thousands of people employed at it.

    Advice to Management

    Just be willing to listen to your people who do the jobs every day. They almost always know what's up. :)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule and an incredible training program called Real Whirled that makes you desirable to other companies as well.

    Cons

    Occasionally field representatives feel that their opinions are not heard by corporate but that seems to be common in any large organization. Communication barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer communication and fewer surprises for your field reps. It is difficult to stay enthusiastic about a position when it is constantly changing.
