I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at 3M in September 2013.

Interview Details – I met a recruiter at my campus career fair and was contacted for an interview shortly after. The interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and went a little over.

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.

Interview Question – i see that u lost 0.02 points in your gpa. tell me where did that go?   Answer Question
