If money is more important than life and family...
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Mentor, OhioDecember 20, 2014
Pros: pay (when your machine is working), benefits, bonus
Cons: swing shift. no days off except sunday. no sick days. filthy. extremely physical. no lunches.
The expectations at Lincoln Electric are high. Very high. I agree that they should be for quality product to be created. HOWEVER, the piece work required to make a decent living or to keep your job period, is WAY to high. If your machine does down, not their problem. You DO NOT get paid if your not producing. It kills your body and the swing shift will make sure you never sleep again or exist on a few hours of sleep at most. GUARANTEED. This is the only company that gets away with not giving you a lunch and only one 20 minute break; regardless of if your working an 8 or 12 hour shift. They will also schedule you to work mandatory during your vacation and if you don’t like it, they will tell you to find another job unless you’ve been there at least 3 years. Then they will suspend you if you don’t do what is asked of you. They scheduled people to work 52 1/2 hours during Christmas week. No paid holidays. No sick pay. No days off. 6 days a week. Alternating shifts. Unless you are 19, in great physical condition, single, no social life and on your parents insurance... this is not the job for you.

Manager Cost Accounting and Property (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHDecember 5, 2014
Pros: well defined roles, bonus, advancement opportunities
Cons: no fringes, high health insurance (pay yourself)
Great company. Granted it has a different culture. Salary is lower, but year end bonus makes up for that.
Having a good manager can really aid you for advancement. You need allies for the bonus compensation plan. There are lots of opportunities to make a difference. The culture is always ready for innovative change.
The people do make this a wonderful place to work.

Quality Control (Former Employee), Mentor, OH.January 11, 2014
Pros: enjoyable staff, great benefits, decent pay
Cons: long hours, dirty enviroment, heavy lifting
A typical day at Lincoln Electric starts at 7:00AM. It begins with opening up the tool crib and helping employees get the tools and equipment they need to begin their job.
I learned how to negotiate with Vendors, order product, Inventory Control, Cost reduction and create better plans to run a more effective Tool Crib.
The hardest part of this Job was the work environment which was un heated or air conditioned and required a lot of physical labor which in extreme climate fluxuations created a challenging day.
