Torchmate Reno - Horrible
sales (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJune 30, 2018
Fake - this division is ridiculously full of lies. The GM has tried to make it better but the products lack quality. The quality of workmanship in the manufacturing process are really bad. The production staff is horrible and it starts at the top. Poor Management within manufacturing. --- The lack of accountability is evident in production. Some really good people work there but the lack of good management and really poor quality of the products. The really sad point is that they could be really good but the egos get in the way. Lincoln Elec. made a bad business decision investing in Reno at Torchmate....
Pros
great wages
Cons
Quality is horrible

a lot of standing

Pros
It's a job

paid by the pieces you make

Requires hard work
Boiler Operator (Current Employee) –  Euclid, OHMarch 15, 2018
Lincoln is a VERY a competitive place to work. Demanding hours and work schedule make it very hard to have a proper work/life balance. Overall it pays the bills but it is not for everybody!

Terrible
Tow Motor Operator (Former Employee) –  Euclid, OHFebruary 19, 2018
Worst work enviroment you'll ever experience. Every day they strive to pay you less in order to do the same job. I stopped two people from assaulting me while I was there. I've had four coworkers physically assault each other. I lost count of how many people that were fired or quit.
Pros
Always hiring.
Cons
Hot, dirty, unsafe, pay, hours

reduced wages and benefits increase turnover
Coil Winder (Current Employee) –  Euclid, OHFebruary 16, 2018
when i started at lincoln it was a tough place to work,but the pay and benefits made it worth it. over the last six years as the company has focused on global expansion, they have slashed pay and benefits for their workers. this has caused an alarming amount of turnover as workers have had more work added to their jobs and have had their pay reduced as much as sixty percent. lincoln has frozen the pension, the price of healthcare(you pay the full price out of what little bonus you still get) and high deductible alone drove away many long time workers. there are no paid holidays, sick time or personal days. often they will send workers home early during the week if it is slow, then bring them in on saturday for straight time. the attitude of most workers is now very negative. that along with the high turnover have impacted productivity and quality, the two things lincoln had championed for a hundred years.

Pay is decent
Machinist (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHFebruary 7, 2018
Extremely racist company!!! Management is horrible and they don't know what they're doing. Hardest part of the job is being here. Most enjoyable part is clocking out. Everyone in the building is currently job hunting. Do NOT come here expecting a large bonus!!! Those days are long gone!!! The bonuses now are laughable!!!
Pros
Close to my house...
Cons
Pay is horrible compared to other companies where you do wayyyyyy less work and get paid more...

tough cut throat envirment
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Euclid, OHFebruary 5, 2018
if the management was better I could see working there. problems brought up were not addressed in a timely manner. a very visible disconnect with management. Also piece work and swing shifts calls for a tense culture. Mentor Plant is a better workplace with better General Managers.
Pros
pay
Cons
work hours
