    Had a great internship there. Really learned a lot. Not really any complaints about the work.


    The internship was an unpaid position, which is difficult to work unpaid as a student but that's my only complaint.

    Greeter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phila, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


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


    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.
