A day starts with a sms from superior and ends in a phone call to distributor/dealer. A normal day is busy with meeting people and dealing with the day to day sales and service activity in the market. providing solutions to trade partners.
What I learned was achieving the assigned target by better planning and execution through analysis of thoughts and situation given.
Management is more inclined towards customer satisfaction and betterment and efficiency of the existing work force.
Co workers makes one feel homely.
Hardest part is dealing with trade partners who do not keep up with there commitment and then making them stretch to do the unfinished job.
Most enjoyable part of the job is making them stretch the trade partners achieve the unfinished job.

For me a typical day at work was calendaring, scheduling, follow up on tasks, expense filing, and reconciliation.
I have learned to multitask, not giving in to pressure, flexibility to change, eye for detail.
I am very lucky to have worked with great leaders who walked the talk.
The culture at the workplace was open, though extremely focussed on deliverables.
The hardest part of my job was to see people leave when a project was done on clean up of resources.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my stint with the leadership team and its a precious workplace memory I will always cherish.

Overall I did not mind working at Whirlpool. I absolutely enjoyed the work and was fine with the physical labor that went with it. I'm fairly fit and try to stay as healthy as possible. If I want to give an honest reason why I'm giving such a low review I will be truthful. When I first started I knew it'd be a physical toll and I had to either get used to it or it wouldn't work. My back ached and my hands felt like I was a 100 old man with severe arthritis and etc. I didn't try to complain about the pain because I knew it's something that came with the job and it was something I had to get used to. Only times I mentioned it were if I felt I was slowing down and needed some assistance. I was a little alarmed when I was flat out told. "Either it gets better or it's just not going to work." I was told either I get better or I'll be fired. I wasn't a bad working and I was trying to find ways to make the pain manageable so I could do the best of my abilities. It was confusing to me that a job would throw out a hard worker without any negotiation or compensation for at least trying to do my best in spite of my physical pain.
Whirlpool is all about quality and I don't knock them for that. This point ties with the subject of my pace and my soreness. Of course if someone is in pain the pace will be slower. I understood I needed to perform at a certain pace to meet requirement. I was only a month new and I for sure felt the soreness. Again I tried to explain this "I'm sorry for my s
ProsGreat pay, a lot of hours, constant moving (personal preference)

Bottom line, this is a call center job like any other. It is very stressful: customers complain on every call. You will get yelled at by customers and you will get cussed out. The turnover rate is extremely high. Management tries to act like everyone there is a family and that you can assert yourself on calls. This is just not true, they will put business needs above the employee every time. Policies change daily and sometimes they don’t tell you, or sometimes management doesn’t even know which policy has been changed. If you try taking off at certain times of the year, forget about it because everyone else will take off and there will be no open spots and then many people will call out leaving the rest of the team burdened by more calls. Calls are back to back every day, with only 15 seconds in between. There were times when I was taking 40+ calls a day. If you use personal time to catch your breath in between calls, you will get a verbal warning and if you continue, you will get a written warning and be reported to hr for a correctional plan. Supervisors are only helpful in certain situations if it is of benefit to them, in other instances they will not back you up and merely tell you to contact HR. HR is equally as unhelpful and once had an HR rep disconnect from me when I was IMing them. Even if you want to help the customer, it is very difficult because even though they say you can assert yourself on the call, you can really only do what is written in policy. You can’t o
la empresa tenia varios practicantes por lo que me fue muy agradable el periodo que estuve ahí y aprendí mucho de los Ingenieros
Mi trabajo en específico era verificar si en almacén habían llegado materiales de nuestro proyecto para ir a recogerlos y así posteriormente entregarlos a los departamentos, si no había material que recoger normalmente mi jefa directa me pedía que le ayudara a sacar sus pendientes, que en la mayoría de veces me refería directamente con el líder de proyecto para ver en que lo podíamos apoyar. Ahí variaban mis actividades dependiendo de los encargos, sin embargo la mayoría de las tareas que me asignaban era estar armando refrigeradores para pruebas o estar organizando los materiales,
El líder de proyecto era de nacionalidad brasileña, él era una persona muy alegre que sabía cómo motivarnos y en el caso de los practicantes nos llamaba la atención sin necesidad de exaltación eso fue algo que siempre aprecie, mi jefa directa estaba en el área de logística.
Mi jefa por motivo de embarazo se tuvo que retirar de labores por lo que me asignaron directamente con el líder del proyecto y en este tiempo fue muy bueno ya que conocí todas las áreas del proyecto y trabaje tanto como con ingenieros industriales como también con ingenieros mecatronicos, eléctricos e incluso con diseñadores industriales.
Aprendí tanto como de los jefes de departamentos apoyarlos a sus necesidades como también me relacione con los obreros, en esta gran parte fue con los de almacén y tuve que aprender a relacionarme y llevarme bien con ellos todo esto fue con humildad y sencillez.

Whirlpool isn't a terrible place to work if you have no education and want a paycheck.
The supervisors are okay but there is one in particular that will hold a grudge and hold you back if he doesn't like you. You must watch your p's and q's when bidding off the lines, he will find a reason to write you up so you have to stay for another year.
They give the wrong individuals way to many chances instead of just firing them and getting rid of the actual cause of disruption. In short instead of firing people for actual reasons they will make you quit
It takes way too long to top out, its frustrating to see an individual with no education and who cant spell his name making more than someone with a college education.
Training is decent but the trainers on the actual lines are not up to standard
Company is going cheap and putting plastic parts into their mixers and causing all sorts of issues
Their short term company (matrix) will try everything in their power to deny your short term disability if you need to take it
HR is actually decent at whirlpool but they will go with upper management decisions instead of relying on actual facts
If you get placed as a motor builder you will be stuck as a motor builder for the rest of your whirlpool career. Even if you bid out. Take this to heart as I will repeat myself, IF YOU ARE PLACED IN MOTOR BUILDING YOU WILL BE STUCK.

Minha rotina era de desenvolvimento de novos busines cases, elaboração de propostas técnicas, elaboração e acompanhamento de cronogramas de projetos, follow up de projetos com áreas envolvidas, reuniões de projeto, suporte as plantas com problemas de qualidade, implantação de novos projetos, desenvolvimento de novos fornecedores e de novas soluções de processo e produto para motores elétricos.
Uma das maiores contribuições da Embraco em minha vida foi com relação a desafios. Aprendi a lhe dar com a ansiedade e assumir responsabilidades em projetos cujo as metas pareciam ser inalcançáveis, traçando planos com mitigação de riscos e cronogramas elaborados em conjunto com as partes envolvidas. Outro aprendizado bastante importante para mim foi com relação a atitude, hoje entendo que o mais importante para a empresa é o quanto você consegue realizar com o pouco que você.
A direção passou por muitas mudanças , trazendo muitos aspectos positivos com relação a novas idéias e reestruturações. Também deixou a desejar pois não houve um planejamento para estruturar o conhecimento, assim ao perderem pessoas experientes perde-se o conhecimento.
A empresa trabalha muito a motivação de seus profissionais, de modo que seus colaboradores são muito engajados e apaixonados pelo que fazem. Fomenta idéias e inovação.

This is a very good place to work. There's a decent amount of opportunity to learn during, and advance in, your career as Whirlpool. The majority of leaders are genuine and caring, with only a small percentage who are not. This is a great place to really learn how to lead yourself as well as others and anyone I've talked to that worked at Whirlpool, and then went to another company quickly shares how well they are prepared to work at their new company and how further ahead they are than others.
There is a strong push for the servant leadership model and most are embracing that, but those that don't are not being removed from leadership, negatively impacting this great culture change.
However, there seems to be more of a consultant strategy in the current Whirlpool leadership which leads to aggressive cost cutting, including to headcount, when there is a concern on the horizon. For example, a significant layoff happened during COVID (10-25% depending on the function) summer of 2020, yet Whirlpool ended up having a "record year" in 2020. Another example of the consultant strategy coming through is that while we have extremely smart, capable and innovative employees, we too quickly do not trust them to solve new problems or close gaps but quickly turn to third parties before finding internal solutions. This stymies Whirlpool’s ability to really develop and drive strong internal innovation in for the future.

A typical day in my role as a HR Business Partner includes supporting the IT leadership team in achieving their objectives from a people perspective. This entails delivering results in the following areas: talent management, performance management, team effectiveness, organizational effectiveness, talent assessment, talent development, change management, education and training, program management to the IT leadership development program geared toward early career talent, etc. What I have learned the most in this role is how important it is to align IT (a support function) to the business/value chain to drive greater results. The more aligned we are with the business in our operating model and org structure, the better we can provide value to the broader organization. I've also learned that having the right talent in the right role is vital to the health of the organization and us being able to accomplish our goals. This means, I have to make tough calls at times but it is for the right reasons.

Hiring process is dysfunctional, especially for contract worker temporary positions. You are put through a grueling 3 hour interview with 3 teams of 2 people each. Interview is a targeted selection type geared more towards management of people, rather than what your skills are and how your skills could benefit the company. The process unnecessarily eats up a lot of time and money on the companies part to just hire workers who are temporary, when all they need do should be a simple process of contacting an employment agency, phone interview and selection. The purpose of this system is to alleviate costs, but the process does anything but. Huge waste of time, people resources and loss of productivity.Defeats why they downsized HR and went to this type of system.-- cost.
They prefer you have a BS degree.
Even though they may specify a lower degree as minimum, they really want a specialized BS degree. Pay attention to detail in the postings. The "preferred" is what they are really looking for. The minimums are posted because it is required to.

A typical day at work involves handling inbound calls from external customers, and assisting them through the process of booking a delivery, or arranging a collection that could involve a varied range of household appliances. Outbound calls are also made that cover the same objective described above for inbound calls. Every contact with a customer is an opportunity to sell a service plan, which provides commission for every successful sale.
I learned that adopting a positive attitude that seeks to help the customer achieve their demands is crucial, especially when difficulties and unforeseen complications arise that may inconvenience customers. Understanding and patience when dealing with customers was vital, which could make the difference between a positive customer experience, or a negative one.
The management were often very vague and displayed visible signs of annoyance when assistance was required in areas that were not familiar or known. This was not encouraging, and it would result in a negative attitude among the team within the department, often resulting in apathy and lack of enthusiasm for their commitments, resulting in poor productivity and overall poor customer service experience. As a result, co-workers were isolated and lacked job satisfaction and empowerment that affected co-worker relationships negatively, which was partly a result of egotistical power plays between management in maintaining knowledge at the expense of de motivated employees.
