STAY AWAY - Failing Company
Electrical Assembler (Former Employee) – Monee, IL – March 19, 2018
Even though whiting is over 100 years old the company is not profitable and is quickly failing.
The work is stressful and requires vast product knowledge and experience yet the pay is comparable to a fast food joint. The shop is full of under qualified employees, because that’s the only people they can find for $15/hr. The product being delivered to customers is not a quality product and more often than not the equipment is returned to whiting because of malfunctions, or warranty work is done in the field. Many people in the shop do not work at all on a daily basis, hide in the bathroom for hours, show up late daily, but still have a job. Other people who know what they are doing are required to handle all the work in the shop and are threatened to lose their job if they don’t meet management’s impossible deadlines. Speaking of management, they are clueless. 11% of the entire company are managers who are outside hires who have no clue what work is to be done and expect miracles to happen at the snap of a finger. This is a failing company that can not afford to keep it’s doors open.. STAY AWAY!
If you interview for a job at Whiting then think of it only as a learning situation, get some experience and then GET OUT.

Bad management. Low wages. Impossible deadlines. Hostile work environments
