    Electrical Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric (Euclid, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Lincoln Electric is switching from MicroStation to AutoCAD and was looking for someone with experience in AutoCAD Electrical to help them institute new drawing standards and help establish footprint libraries. I have previous experience doing exactly what they are looking for and I was able to get an interview with the help of a recruiter. I first spoke to an electrical supervisor about my knowledge and experience with everything AutoCAD Electrical and he was very impressed with me. I also interviewed with two other employees who are working on instituting AutoCAD and I was a total hit with them as well. All in all, the interview went fantastic, and an hour-and-a-half later the recruiter called me and told me they wanted to hire me. But, I unfortunately have a felony record completely unrelated to the job and which in no way hinders my ability to do the job, and this did not sit well with Lincoln Electric. After yanking my chain for over a week they finally withdrew their offer. This was, of course, expected since, in spite of what recruiter after recruit has told me, people with AutoCAD Electrical experience are not in short supply and/or difficult to come by, because if this were true then companies wouldn't arbitrarily throw away valuable talent. They were, after all, ready to hire me until they found out this one indiscretion. It is a consistent trend in the industrial engineering industry to love a candidate until the background check comes back and then throw them away completely for some moral elitism that assigns a label as their entire identity and completely ignores the actual encounter the company has with the individual and leaves an apparently desperately-needed slot empty. But, after reading many, many, many less-than-stellar reviews here on Glassdoor about how terrible Lincoln Electric is to its employees, such short-sighted decisions should not be a surprise.

    Interview

    The process consisted of a phone interview to prescreen the candidates. After this, about 6 to 8 people were selected to interview in person. You were placed in a group with other engineering majors, so not all were applying for the same job. Then a panel of 4 people interviewed, one at a time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric (Nashville, TN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I landed an interview at a huge career fair. They were all dressed casually, and the interview felt almost as casual. They took things seriously, but it was nice to not have everyone be so uptight. It was the typical question type that everyone asks and you get really tired of answering. I never got a follow up email because it was a recruiting deal, and I literally never heard from them again. I didn't have to apply they said, but I think I might have.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric (Euclid, OH).

    Interview

    Got called in for an interview via email. Got the email about 3 days after applying online. The interview turned out to be a mechanical aptitude and math test. These tests were taken on the computer. They gave you like 2 hours. I finished in about 45 minutes. A couple days later I was called back for a one on one interview. I had 2 interviews when I went, one with my future manager and on with HR. About a week later I was called and told that I was going to have to take a tobacco test and a hair drug test. I was a cigarette smoker so they told me they would give me 6 weeks to quit. After 6 weeks I went in and took the tobacco test and hair test. I passed both and got a call 3 days later with a start date.
