Whirlpool Corporation has called Southwest Michigan its home for 112 years. Working in southwest Michigan offers a unique blend of rural charm and urban opportunities, creating a distinctive work environment. The region’s landscape is characterized by lush vineyards, serene lakeshores, and picturesque farmlands, making it an ideal location for those seeking a slower-paced lifestyle that values work-life balance.

With all that southwest Michigan has to offer, attracting top talent to Whirlpool Corporation has always been top of mind. By working with the city of Benton Harbor and surrounding communities to improve the quality of life for area residents, including the opening of our new state-of-the-art technology center in St. Joseph and a new 80-unit, multi-family housing development in Benton Harbor, we’re continuing to invest in the community.

“In today’s environment, companies have to be located in places where they know they can find talent,” says Pam Klyn, Whirlpool’s senior vice president of corporate relations and sustainability. “Michigan has more than double the number of mechanical engineers than any other state in the country and leads the nation in commercial and industrial engineers. Companies that are looking for engineers know they can set up shop in Michigan and find the talent necessary to be successful.”

Every day, we’re developing products that make a difference in people’s lives. We’re also proud to be building something else – a special, unique work environment where every member of our teams can feel right at home as they shape, steer, and mold their career and future how they want it to be.
