Production Worker (Former Employee) – Marion, OH – 17 August 2019
Made for a very unhappy workplace, hardest part was listening to people complain all day. even the team leads and the supervisors hate the place....doesn't leave you much hope for your future with the company
Assembly Production Associate (Former Employee) – Amana, IA – 12 August 2019
Fast pace environment. They push you and breaks ar about 9 minutes. Break starts when you leave the line and starts back up right at 15 minutes. Lunch is the same way they treat you like a machine. I would never work for them again. I got hurt and did what they said and they didn't take care of me and fired me because I couldn't do the job. I hurt my back. The test showed a bulging disk and there doctor and nurse said I was fine.

Nepotism. People that have been there long feel like they can treat new hires like dirt. Everyone acts like it's high school, with gossip and talking about each other. Lazy people get rewarded while hard working ones get trampled over.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Cleveland, TN – 10 May 2019
The absolute worst place ever to work. Hardly any training provided, unfriendly and unhelpful coworkers. Not worth the pay. They just throw you on a line and expect you to catch on. And quickly. And don’t dare ask for help.

Its a great job...the people are very nice..the employees are always willing too help and train when needed ... They are a very fast paced work environment but with there rotation schedule the time goes very fast.

Management is horrible. Seniority means nothing. Favoritism everywhere. In a state that is an at will state...they seem to think they aren't allowed to fire people for harrassment. One guy here has ran off many women because he harasses them and supervisors and mgt won't do anything about it. Corporate wouldn't even do anything. He still works here, no punishment at all. He even laughs about it. Supervisors are awful. I can't wait for the day I can walk out of here. Don't come here unless you have no other options!
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – 15 October 2018
Good when first starting out but unless you are in a social cliche or good friends with the management you won't get far. Seniority and experience means nothing as people who basically got hired in would get good positions and others wouldn't be considered
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – 28 August 2018
Whirlpool was a decent company to work for before they made the move to leave the U.S. and do most of their production in Mexica. They shut down most of the U.S. factories including the one I worked at in Fort Smith.
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Marion, OH – 16 August 2018
Whirlpool was an okay place to work until they used their "lean-tech" to make every job on the line super hard to do. Once they did that, every job was stressful and difficult and took a bit of time to master. Once your done working, your so tired you don't want to do anything else.
Good benefits, decent pay rate.
Stressful, difficult, and tiring on a daily basis.
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Marion, Ohio – 3 July 2018
If your fresh out of high school and are looking for a career in fast, robotic, mindless assembly work..this is the job for you. It's unbearably hot in the summer and you have to cover your arms with sleeves and gloves which makes it even more unbearable. Your supposed to be trained on a job for 30 days but they expect you to keep up with people who have been there 2 or 3 years after only 6 days of training. You stand all day long unless you know your job well enough to sit once in a while. If you get bumped around on the dryer lines ( which you will )..you will loose your 15 minute break and your lunch! Believe me..you want your break and lunch! I hated every minute I was there and prayed to have enough nerves left at the end of my shift to make it home.
Pay is good, benefits
Heat, stressful, older applicants get treated like dirt.

Whirlpool is a okay place to work when you need funds to support your family. I worked there for 7 months and left because of management. I worked on the door line and felt like I was being harassed by the first shift supervisor everyday for the type of clothing I had on and I worked second shifts only. There is no room for rising in the company when people are trying to cut your neck and make sure you don’t make it to the top . Also there is no air conditioning inside but big ceiling fans that do not help when it’s 100 degrees outside and feels as if it’s 120 inside. The management does not know how to talk to you and can make you feel very upset. I believe the wages should be higher than the pay thats being given today!
