    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Franklin Institute (Phila, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process went well,. I was pretty much hired on the spot after we discussed my availability which was most days and about 3 nights, including weekend nights. However after discussing this with my fiance, we decided that just one of those nights would not be good , The manager called the next day told me when I could start and I told her about the one night and she said she'd call back. When she did, she said they couldn't hire me because I wasn't flexible enough. Well I guess im not the only one that's not flexible, especially since they weren't specific in the interview about their needs.

    Interview

    was set up an interview with the departments you are looking to intern for. it is a one on one interview with the head of the department. it was a more relaxed interview and felt more like a conversation which was nice but still was asked the general type of interview questions. it was a an overall good experience and better than previous interviews i have had.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Franklin Institute (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Surprise phone interview with follow up interview in person. Waited very long in the atrium, which was awkward for my first interview experience. Many people kept asking if I worked there. Very easy and approachable people, found out within two weeks, but the application process took several months.

    Interview

    Once I was able to finally meet with the hiring manager, I enjoyed the process. I met with one hiring manager first, then was called back in for a second interview with two other members of the department. One negative: I asked the HR department for information on benefits several times before receiving the information.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Franklin Institute in July 2010.

    Interview

    It was pretty good, and just consisted of a quick interview with the senior manager and one of the other interns who was doing the position currently. Mainly the interview was just talking about recent technology and how I could implement those technologies for the company, meaning facebook, google, twitter, all of that.
