Only thing I didn't like was you had to bid on a job and they have a point system but they have great benefits and discounts... You can move up in the company to different levels you just have to keep from pointing put..

Working in a manufacturing facility has its ups and down. It is a relaxed work environment, but is loud and...well a factory. But the people are incredible and the company is great and responsive to its employees. This company firmly believes that people are their best resource!
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Amana, IA – October 18, 2017
The job can be very stressful for someone with anxiety. The people working there are great. HR doesn't work with you very well on hard situations until you have been there for a year. Everything goes by seniority so new hires have a really hard time. You get two 9 minute breaks in the morning a half hour lunch and a 10 minute break at the end of the day.
Consumer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Cleveland, TN – October 13, 2017
I constantly felt judged for everything done, so I was worried to even do what I was allowed to do. The customers were also highly stressful when they called. They seemed to gain this sense of confidence over the phone and can be extraordinarily rude. Workers are told that if they have a bad call that they can take a minute to regather themselves if it's necessary, but they get on you for taking "too long" even when it's only been a couple of minutes. Being someone with mental health, sometimes it takes a little longer to recoup. My advisor knew this and still made me feel bad about taking a minute to regather. I LOVE my coworkers, however, and a lot of the advisors are wonderful, but I have just had an overall unpleasant experience.
Trade Partner Service Support (Former Employee) – Yakima, WA – October 12, 2017
Based on my experience in the appliance industry, corporate America asks its' employees to redirect a great deal of animosity from dissatisfied consumers to trade partners. To summarize my experience, it forced me to become slightly desensitized to people when I'm unable to provide assistance due to restraints in place to save the company money.
Sacrificing your time for a company I strongly felt doesn't truely value its' employees
Manager (Current Employee) – Benton Harbor, MI – October 10, 2017
I am impressed with the quality of employees Whirlpool manages to attract - especially given its location in a very small town in Michigan, two hours' drive from big cities. But in my opinion the company is struggling to define itself and adapt to changing consumer needs and preferences.
General Worker (Former Employee) – Clyde, OH – October 9, 2017
A typical day at Whirlpool would start out by going to your work area and having a meeting with you TL (team lead) of your area giving you updates about things going on in and out of Whirlpool, safety tips and anything else they wanted to share. You would go to your station and when the bell rang you started working, rotating every half hour. Some areas are less physical than others. That sums up a work day at Whirlpool.
