    Windows Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 3M in September 2020.

    Interview

    There was an online test with two SQL and two Python questions. They wanted to hire a windows person with PowerShell experience so it was odd that they didn’t even ask about it. 3 hour marathon interview where the director shouted me down and told me I was wrong. Almost hung up on the process after that. Didn’t get an offer but wouldn’t want one working with that negativity.
