    Logistics Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric (Cleveland, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Responded to opening online in early June. Did not hear anything until end of July. Met with hiring manager and peer to open position second week of August. Very informal discussion talking about processes and procedures. HR called me two days later to schedule another interview the following week to meet hiring manager's manager and leaders of other internal company groups. Only scheduled 30 minutes with each and never had chance to ask them questions. Once again the conversation was very informal and easy to chat with except for hiring manager's manager who asked me about qualifications that were not even mentioned in the job req. Thus, I thought I was finished as a candidate as that manager said he had to move to another meeting and didn't even recap with me. Then a month later the hiring manager calls me and asks if I'm still looking for a job. Wants me to come in and meet another peer to the role and his manager again. Meeting with peer was great and he told me I would be a great fit. The manager spent his time conjuring up scenarios that were unclear and became unrealistic once I began asking clarifying questions. He told me three times "I'm not trying to trap you." Funny, but I felt like that was what he was trying to do. Once again after about 35 minutes said he had to go. Once again no recap or follow-up. Contacted the this person the following week and withdrew from consideration.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric.

    I started with a quick 40 minute phone interview. The interview asked basic questions about why I was interested, why I applied, basically a get to know you. After the phone interview I had an in person interview with a local representative. This was very casual but more in depth. I was supposed to have a 3rd interview with the manager of the office I was going to be placed but they offered me the job before the interview.

    Interview

    First round interview, then online aptitude test, then flew to Cleveland for final round. Had round robin style interviews with senior sales management, really relaxed and conversational.

    Technical Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric (Austin, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got an interview through university campus recruiting, but I was referred by an employee. I was required to attend an information session the day before the interviews which was very informational. The presenter was very friendly and easy to talk to and was the same person that ended up interviewing all the candidates.
    As I understand, the first interview is followed by an online aptitude test. Then, if I make it past the first round, I will be flown out to the headquarters, in Cleveland, Ohio.

    As far as the first interview went, the questions were very straightforward and scripted. Questions included, "Are you someone that people look for to complete tasks or decisions."

    Interview Questions

    • The hardest question that caught me off guard, was when they asked if I was good with conflict resolution and how I deal with conflict.   1 Answer
