      Good pay People at the individual contributor level are great Work Your Way allows for employees to choose when and where they do their work


      No opportunity for advancement for mid-level employees, specifically females and underrepresented groups Too many legal challenges driving the stock price down

        Great, only if you are a 3Mer. I've heard about all the wonderful benefits and pay a full time 3M employee receives. It almost sounded too good to be true. It could have been a dream job.


        CW's are treated as sub humans. If 3M could have found a machine to do your job you wouldn't be there in the first place. You don't matter, and you will be reminded in subtle and not so subtle ways regularly. Don't fall for the lie that you are going to get hired soon. There is a good chance you will hear this repeatedly to keep you on the hook so you stay. The fact is you will work hard and waste years diligently, constantly proving yourself only to be reminded you are not a 3Mer. YOU ARE NOT ONE OF US CW. You can't participate in so many things as a result of being a CW, you get isolated. 3M Club? No, CW's can't be a part of that "Enhancing 3M Culture since 1934" club. That culture is exclusive, only for 3Mers. This is what an inclusive place for all looks like? What it looks like is alienation.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Senior Financial Analyst

      I went through the final round of interview last Thursday with the CFO. It seemed to have went well, she said she'll talk to me soon. I haven't heard back yet. When is an appropriate time to follow up. And should I email the recruiter or the hiring manager?


      Customer Service Representative CSR

      I had an interview this afternoon for a customer service position in a call center. The ad was very vague to begin with and at the end of it I felt like I really didn't know anything more about the job. When I asked about the starting pay, which was not published in the ad, they looked incredulous (they were doing on-the-spot hiring today) and then asked me "What's your range?" And only responded with "I think we could meet that." And still never gave me a straight answer. Is this a red flag?

      Software Engineer

      I did my initial interview with a “better established” startup and they said the interview process is 5 interviews. 3 technical then 1 interview with the CEO then another technical interview. Idk about you but that seems like a lot of interviews and they said they want to do it as fast as possible in a short time span. Is this a normal amount of interviews? Is this a red flag? For a full stack software position 4-5 years exp how much salary should be the norm in a hcol area?
