I have been working at Lincoln Electric full-time (More than 10 years)
The people hands down are some of the best you will ever work with in your career. Senior management is doing their best to re-connect with the workforce which is very positive for the future. The wage increase this year will help bring back morale.
Benefits are very high and there is a lack of acknowledgment that this is an issue. If this does not change we will continue to see high employee turnover.
Advice to Management
Walk a mile in your employees shoes and recognize who the back bone of this company really is. Empathize with your workers and their family who have family medical plans with Lincoln as we all don't earn huge salaries to offset the medical costs.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric in May 2017.
Had a phone screening with HR. Asked about resume and experiences. Then another Phone Screening with an Engineer. After that I was flown out to Cleveland for the Final interview with 5 different Engineers. All of them asked questions from Resume. Very relaxed and professional environment. Also got a tour if the manufacturing plant. Overall a great experience.
