    I have been working at Franklin Electric


    -Great mentorship
    -Great culture
    -Lots of growth potential
    -Work life balance is good


    One of the motto's is "mediocrity is not tolerated" but I've seen a lot of mediocrity and worse being tolerated.

    Many cross department issues that hinder collaboration are overlooked and tolerated.

    Positive Outlook

    Product Manager - Vertical Pumps Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Franklin Electric in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
