best for workaholics

The job sure was interesting on the technical side (inside sales rep.) but quickly became life consuming between taking call, doing appointments and also follow-up with number of clients and clinics. Busy workplace that can be very stressful at all the times. Quite often understaffed. Tasks keep getting added to the daily workload and although enough training is given not given proper chance to sale items.Poor management, busy store, often no time to take lunch, good luck for the job.

Pros

good pay

Cons

less time lunch breaks

Intresting technologie, But Stressfull, over worked, often on call.

The job sure was intresting on the technical side but quickly became life consuming, between many remote plants shutdowns, being on call, low pay for being on calls, no leadership/recognition from the boss, low vacation for the enormous work we had to do.. the work/life balance is really poor here unfortually, but it is a great job for workaholics.. the only positive points i see is work safety is respected, paid food when on the road, experience gained, and unlimited overtime.. in the end unfortually for Linde this job in this departement is nothing more then a good temporary job... too bad for the company, the trainning can be a year or 2 until your completly autonomous...

Work hard, play never.

Do not expect slow days! Or company events. Or a thank you. Or a decent pay increase. Expect to WORK HARD (Unless your in HR, in which case its kinda the opposite and you should really apply).Regardless of the position your job will be secure as this company does business EVERYWHERE. Its a giant company that knows how to service the shareholders. Its going to be around for a very long time.Mainstream globalist corporate culture.Top down restrictive everything. Decisions come from on high to the peasants. The executive class is an actual thing.

Terrible company

Undertrained and overworked is a great way to describe my time there. There was no real guidance in what needs to be done - it's a sink or swim operation. They care so little for their employees it's disgusting

Absolutely Poor Management

Do you want to get thrown under the bus regularly? Do you want to receive zero positive reinforcement at your job? Do you want to work in an grossly understaffed facility? Come work for Linde!The middle management of this company is completely lacking in leadership skills, accountability and responsibility. They will never accept responsibility for anything. They will always pass the buck. And you will never be rewarded or congratulated for anything you do. This company implemented an arbitrary COVID charge on all their customer bills over $20 because they claimed they were bleeding money so they needed to pass this on to their customers. That year they posted amazing financial results and gave the board record compensation packages. Oh! And they cancelled all overtime for staff except drivers, understaff their facilities to the point of negligence and then chastise you for not getting all the work done. This company advertises incentive programs and then doesn’t come through. They advertised within the facility about a safety rewards program. Then the rewards were not doled out despite the safety record qualifying according to the stipulations of the program. In conclusion, this company is a nightmare to work for. Look elsewhere if you value your sanity.

Avoid!

Management and long time employees have created a toxic work environment similar to the ‘boys club’. If you’re looking for a diverse place to work where you feel valued amongst your coworkers for the experience and background you bring to the table, this is not the place. Stay clear!

Cons

Poor Management

Better off elsewhere

Weak management and HR have created a toxic work environment. Despite job postings, many positions are pre assigned. Constant elimination of employee rights and perks. Many long time employees are leaving and even new hires are only staying briefly. Stay away.

It was alright

Just not what I was wanting to do for the rest of my life. Sitting behind a desk being yelled at by customers for problems out of my control was not something I loved.

Decently run location, poor direct management as a worker

Bit of a mixed bag here at Linde. The office and those in charge of running the location were kind, efficient, and generally a pleasure to work with. Direct management in the warehouse would often micromanage and generally gave off negativity and stressful and contradictory instructions, which was common knowledge among the warehouse staff (and even customers/other businesses picking up would observe and note this). This led to a frequent turnover and dissatisfaction with the role amongst co-workers.The pay was good for the skill of the role itself, and you were given the opportunity to interact with a variety of people when filling orders who were usually pleasant and friendly. The work itself could be rote and repetitive, and there was an element of corporate bureaucracy as the company is so large and multinational.The hardest part of the job was the lack of variety in tasks and occasionally heavy physical demands in shoveling large quantities of dry ice. Additionally, the warehouse was a bit run down and poorly maintained/cleaned.If you're patient and okay with being micromanaged and repetitive work, the wage is pretty solid for an entry-level position within the company.

Good enough!!

Have to deal with a lot of headaches with equipment problems but the pay and dedication to safety more than make up for it. Worldwide company so lots of room for movement. Management always has your back

Pros

All about safety, great pay, decent managers

Cons

Equipment not suited for use in snow and cold

If you like fast paced environment this is where you need to be.

Big company. Alot of good people there but lack structure and training. Lack of staff and ressources puts strain on the ressources they do have. Otherwise this is a good paying company with great benefits.

Pros

Salary and collegues

Cons

Systems are not user friendly. Training lacks structure. Lack of training.

You need to know how to talk to Customers. Research the company before your interview.

Really great place to work within a team environment. Customers are friendly. You sell chocolate for a living. Fast pace environment. Great employee discount.

Pros

Great teamwork, fellowship with other team members.

Collaborative and Friendly work environment

An excellent place to work with friendly staff. There's a fair amount of physical labour involved, but you pick it up quickly. The store was a little dated and could have used an overhaul, but overall a good work environment.

A merger ruined this company

I have worked here for a decade, the first 8 years of my employment we were under a Praxair company. A merger fell in place and slashes, cuts, layoffs and less benefits fell in to place.Profits at the happiness of their employees. A false sense of safety being the highest priority, until it costs money. In the healthcare division we have home service advisors who are on call, and receive an on call wage, on a fairly regular basis you will get a phone call while at home asking work related questions.I’ve received pay raises basically every year, however they match inflation so I basically make the same as I did 10 years ago.The merger killed what was good about this company. Now there is nothing

Pros

Two times a year during inventory you get lunch provided

Cons

There are many, poor salary, poor review process, poor safety practices, neglect of regulations.

Toxic

Management has no clue about the business with unfounded and totaly unrealistic business ideas. There is never any consideration for outside ideas from them..its just their way or the highway....which is ok if there is some well founded ideas coming from them....but there's not.

Pros

None

Cons

Nonstop control by micro manager's who have no idea what they are doing.

productive but stressful place to work

the job was steady and a bit busy but management and several key team members made it very stressful - this made the job challenging at times there were no written instructions or expectations of jobs just verbal that may change according to who you were dealing with and the challenges of that day

Do not work here

Upper management was a disgrace, no respect for employees, cannot trust co workers. Manager verbally and mentally abusive to woman. Not a happy place to work
