A typical day at work

At Electrolux, we are committed to delivering outstanding consumer-quality experiences.

You will be expected to make Quality Visits and execute related chargeback activities to suppliers as well.

As part of the culture of continuous improvement, you will be involved in Lean Thinking projects and activities (EMS/C2W).
