    Security Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maplewood, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Maplewood, MN).

    Interview

    Interview process itself was similar to other companies, though 5 interviews for the first day, next set was with two-three additional people a few weeks later.

    They seem to lack an HR dept so an admin assistant, who was fantastic, reached out to arrange the interviews. There was no one to ask the standard initial questions one would normally ask of HR prior to accepting an interview offer.

    Their follow-up was not up to the standards they sold during the first interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • how would you setup cloud authentication
      what types of technology have you used and how did you use them
      Have you worked with significant technology dept and aged systems, how did you address it.

    Risk Assessment Facilitator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maplewood, MN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 3M (Maplewood, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. First, I had a phone interview where I called the interviewer. It was quite strange, but apparently it was the new system they started implementing. Within a few days, I got a on-site interview at 3M. Was told I would be meeting with one person, turned out that I met with 4 people, the phone interviewer, two engineers, and the staffing agency representative. The 4th person walked into the interview a few minutes late so I had to catch him up on my answers. He asked oddly formatted questions that made it hard to answer a simple question. Overall, it was a simple interview asking about my experiences, how I would tackle issues, and working with engineers. Lasted within an hour.

    Materials Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Maplewood, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Simple meet and greet with technical phone interview. The hiring manager insisted I talk with another team that I would be working with. The hiring manager had silly questions like he never interfaced with these interviewers before and didn't understand what they did. The managers were going to follow up once they got feedback from the group and never called. I guess 3M must have too many applicants to bother being decent.

    Friendly phone interview between me and 3 managers. It was a stress free conversation and basic interview questions were asked. Don't act nervous and be confident throughout the process.
