    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at 3M (Odessa, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online directly on company website. Got phone screening interview in 4 days. After that on second day got HR interview with panel of 2 and after that Technical interview with panel of 2 people.

    Interview Questions

    • Funny thing. There was NO technical question at all other than general queries. Technical questions are a necessity in this interview. I was surprised. I did not ask on their face as I did not want them to feel insulted about that. And what if they hire me without asking technical question and this may become blockade in career. Other than that overall company is good as I know.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 3M (Decatur, AL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 5 employees asking a range of "Tell me about a time when". Then my point of contact took me on a tour of the facility. The atmosphere was fairly comfortable. This was my first panel interview, and I was a bit nervous. However, the questions themselves were your garden variety "come up with a story about yourself" type questions.
