I have been working at Franklin Electric full-time (More than a year)
I really enjoy my Co-workers
Low pay raises that do not account for the cost of living increases. 1, 2, and 3% pay increase after 1 year and sometimes nothing.
Advice to Management
Hire some women supervisors

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

Franklin Electric's products are used primarily by OEMs that incorporate them in underground petroleum pumping systems, sewage pumps, vacuum pumping systems, and freshwater pumping systems. The US makes up nearly half of sales.
