Lincoln Electric provided a good internship experience, however, it was extremely variable from intern to intern what the work would entail. In my experience, I was in an area that lacked guidance and direction, so the internship was almost entirely what I made of it. I met a lot of awesome people on the job and I enjoyed the culture of Lincoln, but myself and other interns felt lost at times due to the lack of direction for projects.
lincoln electric is a very fast pace job, you have to be willing to work all shifts and some times the shift could change in a middle of a work week, and that is where the problem comes in, no set schedule.
Productive and fast-paced. Challenging and fair. Always finishsed assignments 3-5 days ahead of schedule & had to request more work.
Millwright (Former Employee) – Madison Heights, MI – September 21, 2018
Productive and fast-paced. Challenging and fair. Always finished assignments 3-5 days ahead of schedule & had to request more work and all related to the automobile industry: General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford.
Overall a positive experience. Pay is very comparable to other locations in Cleveland. You need to be ready to work in a very fast-paced job. Your earning potential is truly dependent on how hard you are willing to work and understand your job.

sales (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – June 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....
