    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Bengaluru) in July 2015.


    It was made so as to test if I was capable enough for the role, to develop concepts and make prototypes of the same. The role was to bring ideas to prototype stage and hence the interview was designed to be so.
