    I have been working at Lincoln Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, industry leader, job security

    Cons

    Non-competitive compensation, as nice as the profit sharing "bonus" is at the end, realistically it barely makes us competitive with our industrial gas suppliers

    Advice to Management

    Review the competition's compensation

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lincoln Electric in December 2017.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two phone interviews, & an in person interview. I was initially screened by a recruiter, two days later spoke with her manager. Was asked the exact same questions & asked to describe my prior experience.
    Two days later I was scheduled to meet for an in person interview that would consists of meeting with 3 people one after another.
    My first meeting was with the Manager who I'd spoken to on the phone. He asked me the exact same questions, to which I gave the same answers that I had on the phone.
    After about 20 minutes of talking, he announced that it was time to meet with the next person. So the recruiter who I initially met with came & walked me into another room. She then announces that I was supposed to be meeting with another manager, however after briefly talking with the first manager, it was decided that I wasn't selected. Her explanation was that I had all of the "hard skills for the job", however I seemed too "calm and relaxed" & the job is very demanding.
    Altogether it was an enormous waste of time. Any competent manager & recruiter knows how to screen properly over the phone. I don't understand why I was even called for an in person interview in the first place. It's almost as if I was used as some kind on experiment, as the recruiter told me she had only started 2 weeks ago.
