    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.
      Have you worked within an organization where security is still a bit behind and you need to help sell the success of it.   Answer Question
