    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at 3M.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. After a few days, I received a phone call, in which I was asked about my expectations and my German language skills. At the end of the conversation, I was invited to an interview and told to prepare for a case study in market research. The interview had 2 parts: the normal interview part in which I was asked about what my motivation (especially with the particular division I applied for) and what I had learned from each job I had had. Then, the case study followed. I was given 20 mins to work on in alone. I had to describe my process going about doing market research for the introduction of a new product. It was also had a math part to be done in Excel. Nothing very difficult. Then the hiring manager came back and I had to present my "results", which was a list of steps and their explanation.

    Very selective process for the Business Development Consultant position. There was a 40 minute case interview. Maybe just 5 minutes dedicated for a walk me through your resume question. The interviewer was very cold and not personable.
