    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Franklin Electric (Bluffton, IN) in February 2010.

    Interview

    There were three preliminary phone interviews, two with the hiring manager, then one with the HR Director. A plant visit, on my dime, was scheduled. Upon arrival, meeting with the hiring manager was OK, as the first hour was pretty much meet and greet, which was expected. From then on, I felt like I was dropped unexpectedly on employee after employee for the next five hours. The BIG meeting with the resident VP was not what anyone would mistake as pleasant or inviting. No focused objective questions were asked for at least an hour long interview. I guess he thought I looked like someone who owed him money. Back to the hiring manager, who was a friendly, competent person anyone would be happy to work for. Unfortunately, he told me during our last 1/2 hour that he was on contract and leaving at the end of it! WOW! A day I will never get back.
