    Former Employee - Technical Aide in Maplewood, MN

    I worked at 3M part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    he people were awesome, pay was great for that level, hours were very flexible, and work was pretty independent of supervision. Overall it was a really good opportunity as an undergrad to get some experience in a real engineering position, learn from engineers, scientists, etc. The daily work itself was was nice, pretty chill, stress free. It was VERY hands on too, which was a huge plus. This isn't a job where you're sitting at a computer all day. You are in the lab, getting your hands dirty, doing something you know is meaningful to the company.

    Cons

    For me, the work wasn't challenging enough. I learned everything pretty quick, and after that, opportunities to learn more, take on more responsibilities, didn't come up very frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give tech aides more opportunities to take on more responsibilities - they are definitely capable, no less than a summer intern, for example.
