    The process took a day - interviewed at 3M in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview took place on campus. Lasted about 1.5 hours. Questions were pretty straight forward, basically all fit questions such as 'tell me a situation in which you...'. The interviewer did refer to my resume and asked for past experiences. Overall good experience, but my guess is they did not extend an offer because I needed sponsorship for visa.
