    Interview Details

    I was called to schedule a phone interview. Interviewer seemed like she already knew who she was going to give the job to. I sent a thank you letter after interview nonetheless. I sent follow up email after 2 weeks without a response. After a month, I called the interview and got to speak with her after several attempts. I asked for an update and she was like, didn't you get the rejection letter? okay I'll have it sent to you. yup

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was really good. They called me on December for the first interview thorough a headhunter and after the interview with the 3M team. The only think is that it took a lot of time to conclude, they called me on July.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was professional but still friendly. I was taken to the on site Walmart showroom and asked a variety of experience based questions. They were thorough with my resume and were interested to learn. In the end they went with a candidate with more experience but I am thankful for the interview process. I feel like I gained a lot.

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at 3M.

    Interview Details

    I did not apply to 3M. I was contacted by their HR department and invited in for an interview in spite of the fact that I was not looking for a job. Prior to the interview, I received a few confusing calls and emails that seemed to be random or directed to someone else. Prior to coming in, a manager called me to ask for another interview on the same day I was coming in, not knowing that one was already scheduled. I arrived for the interview to find that the position they spoke to me about was already filled. I was kept waiting and did not meet the manager I was scheduled to meet. Instead, I met another manager from another department who talked to me about a different role (less senior). This second manager had not seen my CV and did not know my name. When I asked to leave, I was interviewed by a more senior manager who also did not know my name and was completely confused about my job experience. She also mentioned that this was my third interview and that I had done well in the first two, although this was the first time I ever stepped into the 3M office and had not had any phone interviews. She finally told me that I was overqualified but welcome to the junior role if I wanted it. I left and did not reply to any further emails from them. I found their process extremely unprofessional and disrespectful, especially since I never applied to the company in the first place.
