    Unfair treatment

    Current Employee - Machine Operator in Hutchinson, MN

    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Payrate is good. This is the ONLY good thing.

    Cons

    All team leaders treat employees differently, some employees get by with everything, other employees are written up constantly. They keep taking away production workers, so that 1 person is required to run an entire line alone (used to be 3 people). Massive amounts of overtime-no time for family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more production workers, not salaried workers. Treat employees fairly. Stop coming up with more ways to write people up. Let production workers smoke on break (outside, in smoke shacks-this is not hurting non smokers). Limit the amount hours of overtime from production workers-this is bad for morale and health.

  2. People are great, mentor-ship is valued, outsourcing development has become a priority.

    I have been working at 3M full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are great, mentor-ship is really valued by people at 3M. Working in the plants provided a great opportunity to understand manufacturing. Working within the businesses allowed for diverse opportunities.

    Cons

    In an effort to bring down support costs outsourcing development has become a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure the people making the decisions have the technical framework to understand the impact choices made will have in the long term.
