Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) – Marion, OH – December 8, 2018
The pay is great especially when you have high seniority and the benefits are pretty good as well. But sometimes the people you work with can be very toxic and make it hard to work with them. Management still needs a lot of work... I do love that they don't force overtime anymore.
PRINCIPAL ENGINEER, Whirlpool MI (Current Employee) – St. Joseph, MI – December 8, 2018
I am a unique thinker. I simply do things different and have a different way of thinking. At whirlpool they force you to think a their way and when you do not comply with the norm you are singled out and 8-balled despite your excellent work history. Plus the managers do not appreciate how difficult the work is/was and have no patience if issues arise in the work.
Master Production Scheduler / Master Scheduler (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN, LaPorte, IN. – November 30, 2018
Typical day was to make sure parts were in stock for all promotions for Sears and Whirlpool dealers.
I leaned that the customer is the ultimate decision maker. Our Whirlpool team had to make sure the buyer (customer) of out finished products and service parts. We adjusted our entire day / week to make sure the largest customer Sears was happy with our delivery performance.
The management team was good to me during my years of employment. I was promoted from a Production Scheduler for one plant to a Forecast Analyst that supplied service parts for the entire world. I was rewarded for making drastice changes in how the production ran down the line. I helped get a plant running from 96% output to over 100% plant relization.
Hardest part of the job was getting communication to the close by vendor base when we were forced to make a production change due to an unforseen quality issue with parts on freight trucks.
Very challenging, Supervisor trust in me was high.

Assembler (Former Employee) – Middle Amana, IA – November 17, 2018
It's a pretty good place to work. As long as you show up on time and willing to work everything will go smoothly just like any other job. There are good opportunities for you to move up within the company.
Shift differential, good benefits, vacation time, pay
Extremely hot summers, no sick time your first year
Assembler and Utilities Specialist (Current Employee) – Amana, IA – November 14, 2018
Assembly line work here comes down to: if you can't keep up or don't like the conditions, you should quit. English speakers are the minority, especially for second and third shift, so brush up on your French. Also, be prepared to do the same thing for 700-800 times a day, including lifting refrigerator doors.
I enjoyed going into work to work with people that became really close friends to me i enjoyed the area i worked in i done my job exceptionally well the only down side was we got new management that basically drove me to quitting trying to change everything i had been doing
Technician (Former Employee) – Owasso, OK 74055 – November 13, 2018
busting your butt learned - large corps suck to work at management - poor as managers are underpaid to what other companies pay culture - bad none hardest part of job - standing all day long on concrete most enjoyable - leaving at shift end
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Findlay, OH – November 12, 2018
The work isn't particularly difficult but management of all levels will not help you when you need it. They will try to pawn you off on all of the other area coordinators and supervisors until you finally just give up on getting any help at all.
Kitter (Former Employee) – Marion, OH – November 8, 2018
Its a nice place to work, its mostly the people that make it stressful and make you not wanna work there. If you're fast paced and you want to work somewhere that you do the same-thing everyday then this is the place for you.
Wages are fair. Health care is much more expensive than other area manufacturing facilities by a long shot. Management changes constantly which can be very frustrating at times. There is plenty of oppurtunity to grow in the company. The company takes pride in training it's employees. There is multiple classes available to continue your manufacturing knowledge.
