    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Maplewood, MN (US)) in April 2018.


    Was a very straight foward interview process. Met with the head of commercial solutions divisions, she basically asked me about the jobs I'd listed on my resume. The supervisor that I'd be working more closely with joined us about half way through and finished the interview. After the interview concluded, he gave me a tour of the facilities.
