As part of our overall commitment to creating greater equity in our communities, business practices and workplaces, 3M is setting a new global, education-focused goal. The company will advance economic equity by creating five million unique STEM and Skilled Trades learning experiences for underrepresented individuals by the end of 2025. “As a global science, technology and manufacturing company that operates across an incredible number of industries, 3M has the unique capability and opportunity to introduce all people to STEM and trades skills careers,” said Vice President of Community Relations, Michael Stroik. “That introduction can start with an experience that gives someone a peek of what could be or fully opens their mind to a path of opportunities they may or may not have ever been thought about. We want to be the catalyst to that spark, five million times over.”

"Excellent company to work for as long as you have good management."

No opinion of CEO


Benefits are massive. Pay is competitive. Tons of room for advancement on either scale as long as you work for it.


3M scouts from top universities around the world, with the highest degrees, so it can be intimidating, however, if you prove yourself you can still make it to the top regardless.

    Pretty straightforward interview without many elaborate technical questions. Mostly just about my experience and my past projects. There were a couple questions about specific SQL statements, so just be sure to know your SELECTs and JOINs
