steady work pace goal orientated detailed quality detailed safety always striving to maintain a clean and productive work environment which gives a employee room to succeed and grow with in the company
horrendous management,no job security whatsoever.Workers who give years of service are quickly a target for release.They talk about people culture, teamwork, spirit of winning but they dont practice what they preach.They give all the American jobs to Mexico and Brazil, they use Employment agency not to pay medical or even full salaries.People from other countries want you to abide by Brazil laws when we work in the USA and even by Mexico policies, its an absolute joke.

I love working there abs I do not want to quick I just need a little extra cash. Everything there is pretty simple and straight to the point. They have good training too. They don’t let you start a job on your own unless they know that you are comfortable and safe

They hire through Randstad so starting out you don't actually work for Whirlpool. Because of this your starting pay is minimal and you gain no real benefits. You do get 80 hours of vacation but it's unpaid. There's also no guarantee you'll ever move up from the "temp" position. You're not at risk of losing the job, it's just getting converted to an actual Whirlpool employee seems to be a rare occurrence.
If you're just looking to supplement your income or have some extra spending money, it's a very relaxed work environment with fun and friendly management. It can pay the bills if your bills are minimal but it's definitely a paycheck to paycheck kind of lifestyle.
Production Assembler (Current Employee) – Middle Amana, IA – May 13, 2018
Poor place to work. Break room is right in front of restrooms where people wait in line to use the limited facilities. Bad working conditions and leadership. Harassment appears to be ok with Human resources.
9 minute breaks are fast and have to be used to get a toilet if lucky.
The company is going thru alot of changes and job satisfaction depends greatly on team you are on.
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Saint Joseph, MI – May 8, 2018
The work can be very impactful and a person can make a difference. There is just inconsistency in leadership quality and the company is going thru reorgs, cuts and implementing new processes. Has good potential but there are still unknowns
Engineer (Former Employee) – Benton Harbor, MI – May 6, 2018
What a disappointment. Unintelligible product branding and employees from the many acquired companies having positioned themselves into management positions makes it impossible to get a fair shake here. Big push to reduce costs but only if it makes your department look good. For example, management wouldn't step in to make one group spend $.50 that would have resulted in a $2.00 overall cost savings to the product. They talk TEAM but don't walk TEAM. If you enjoy being a foreigner in your own land then Whirlpool Engineering is the place for you. The last time I felt that out of place was when I was working in China.
I enjoyed my employment here. Staff was helpful with my training, and a positive influence from management as well. I think that this job is great for people looking for a first job experience right out of high school. This job teaches you dedication, and hard physical labor. Staff are open to teaching unexperienced employees.
Managers promoted great team environment everyday and opportunities for growth, as well as career advice and feedback. However, the work was very demanding and working hours were typically long. The best part of the job was working with very supportive team members and partners.
Planner / Project Analyst Engineer (Former Employee) – Benton Harbor, MI – May 2, 2018
This place is great, if your young and fresh out of college. This company will not see job loyalty as a positive. Instead, they will fire people who have dedicated many years. Whirlpool sees age and time invested with the company as a undesirable culture.
Associate Consumer Insights Brand Manager (Former Employee) – Benton Harbor, MI – May 1, 2018
Depending on department there can be absolutely no work life balance. Continued reorganization due to company being in bad shape. People are let go every 6 months and the people who are left behind are scared thinking when will it be there turn
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Benton Harbor, MI – April 30, 2018
Whirlpool is a great job for someone who can sit and take phone calls of customers who are most likely not polite to You, if You find that enjoyable and can do it all day then it is awesome with great benefits and nice hours, not to mention they pay for Your college. It is not for someone with a creative mind and would like to be more apart of something, nor is it for someone who enjoys different things and different task. It is very repetitive.
