Maintenance Guy

A - Class Maintenance (Former Employee)
Cleveland, TN (US)

I worked at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWhirlpool (previously Maytag Cleveland Cooking Products) had an apprenticeship program, which allowed anyone who could pass the entrance exam and get through the inteview process to begin a career in maintenance. A four year program (part time) at the local college (Electro-mechanical maintenance certification) ALL EXPENSES PAID !!!!! Concurrently, there was three years of hands-on apprenticeship, with the guys who actually kept the place running and have done so for up to 30 years. WONDERFUL Opportunity !!!!!!

ConsWhat can I say, it's ALL about the bottom line. I wish it weren't so, but as the cost of living continued to rise, the pay stagnated. Our annul raises only covered the additional cost of benefits.
UnfortunateIy, I had to leave the company to fnd more gainful employment. 10 + years of experience out the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's ALL about the bottom line, companies have made that all to clear to their employees.
A persons loyalty to their employer is in great part tied to how well that they can supply their families needs. I suggest a quarterly profit sharing bonus structures implementation would help tremendously. Quality, attendance and LOYALTY to the company would soar to new heights.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: Good products and great discounts Cons: The I.T department is a joke. They outsource all there infrastructure and they pay for the lowest level of support which makes for very unstable… Advice to Senior Management: Ethics....get some! No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
