    Predominantly behavioral, with writing exercise. Met with senior managers then went to lunch with senior analyst team. Key was my academic background and interest in financial markets. And in retrospect the fit within the team at the time.

    Summer MBA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Franklin Templeton Investments (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted on-campus with Portfolio manager responsible for equity investments in Industrials sector. The interview lasted for about 30 min and was a mix of behavioral / motivational / technical questions. The interviewer was very nice and kind, and it was hard to understand where exactly I screwed up. I guess it's just a tough competition, 1-2 MBA internship spots for hundreds of candidates from top schools

Zero communication to applicants after interview process. Have other offers pending and would like to make a decision and not be held up by one company.

    Web Content Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Franklin Templeton Investments.

    Interview

    After meeting over the phone with the recruiter and hiring manager for a half hour, I was given a marketing assignment to redo a web page and create a new splash landing page for financial advisors. This (typically reserved as the final hurdle for a job offer) was asked of me before going in person. I followed up with the recruiter for weeks after that to confirm I was "still in the running" and to which she replied "you definitely are!" then I was told two months later from an auto-generated email that I was not selected. A very poor experience especially after putting time and effort into an assignment.
