The interview was set up through my school and we had to pick from 30 min time slots. I presented my work to two members of the design team and when I was done they asked questions about different aspects of the projects. Then, they asked general interview questions.

Interview

I was given a call and the interview seemed to go well except about 20 minutes later there was an email saying I wasn't selected. The interviewer did seem annoyed that I didn't ask a lot of questions about the job but I had researched the company and knew the job expectations from reading the paragraph on the site.

Interview

The interview process was great. First interview was just a quick phone screening. The second interview was longer and included part of the team in the first half. I felt like my interview extremely well and I was assured I would hear back the following week no matter what the decision was because the manager did not like the leave people hanging. And then I waited almost a month just to get a generic form email rejection that you usually get when you first apply somewhere. It's fine that I was not choosen. I just expected more professionalism from a company like 3M and the person I was dealing with. Especially since I was specifically told I would hear back from.

Interview

It was a good interview process. I was interviewed by two packaging engineers, and it was straightforward. You had to provide a lot of examples of work related things that showed how you overcome certain situations, it shows your thought process and how you handle things.

  • Give me an example of a time when you disagreed with someone and how did you overcome it?

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Maplewood, MN)

Interview

Thought my interview went horribly because I was nervous since there were many moments of awkward silence. I made the mistake of preparing to answer behavioral questions more than I prepared to present my portfolio. I assumed I didn't get the job, but I received a phone call 2 weeks later with an offer.

I interviewed with four people for 30 minutes each, and it was fairly straight forward. They asked me about my resume and background, and a few technical questions. The interviewers were really nice and laid back.
