    Current Employee - Tech Aide  in  Maplewood, MN
    Current Employee - Tech Aide in Maplewood, MN

    I have been working at 3M part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, helpful bosses, fun perks. Although tech aide positions aren't the greatest thing in the world, they are very good for soph.s or jr.s in college. They provide a basis of knowledge that will help you get a future entry level job or internship.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons working as a tech aide, at least for my job. The only thing that is a bit cumbersome is working while you are in school. However they don't force you to work during the academic year and many students only work summers or breaks.
