    Talked to a 3M representative at a career fair. Walked through my resume with the recruiter. The next day I was contacted for an on-campus interview. After the on-campus interview, I was contacted 2 days later to schedule a phone interview. During the phone interview, I was offered an internship position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 3M.

    Interview

    Phone Interview. Lied to about level within company. Misled about who I would be interacting with. Job titles that 3M uses do not reflect any common understanding of job function. The title "Architect" is given to those who do data entry. Outright lying to candidates about level, responsibility and even basic software employed by the company appears to be common.
