-A typical day at work includes with me going to the job and having a cup of coffee. I would log in to my computer at the cubicle and check for emails. I would check my calendar whether there is any meeting for that particular day. I would take care of any urgent work that needs my utmost attention and if there isn't then I would start off what is left from the previous day. - I have learned how to document, update and modify test plans and test cases corresponding to the business rules and requirements.

Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Murray, UT – December 7, 2017
I can't say what it's like now but I loved working there. Things started changing right after I started. The new CEO started cutting programs but the people working there were great. After two years they started voluntary lay-offs. I took it as I had other life changes happening.
A typical days includes doing inventory, planning daily activities, and supporting crew members. I am given the authority to order raw material for my department when needed, so I have to pay close attention to raw material count. I need to plan out my day so that i can make enough material for production to run. When I am done with batching material for production to run, I go help them on the production floor. The people are friendly, but management is hard to engage.

Quality Systems Coordinator (Former Employee) – Decatur, AL – November 27, 2017
Job I was involved in was a one of a kind so not much opportunity for growth after topping out. Worked long hours and sometimes from home. Excellent Manager who was very supportive and backup if needed.
Data Analyst, (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – November 21, 2017
I was a contractor, but 3M was nice place to work. The employees were friendly, no drama. Everyone seems to be dedicated to their jobs and loyal to the company. 3M offers extracurricular programs and training to employees and contractors. There seems to be lots of opportunities for employees to develop and acquire new skill sets. However, changes are slow. Patience is a requirement.
Pleasant working environment. Everyone seems to be treated the same.
Slow to make changes. Process improvement changes needed.
good work balance despite being on call after working hours this was a conversion and new access control system implementation assignment. i finished my portion of the project and then started to do customer support and ticket resolution
old technologies and little chance for change to newer technologies

Sales Analyst (Current Employee) – Murray, UT – November 14, 2017
If I had it to do over again, after having been here for almost a year, I would never have accepted this job. They treat contract workers like they are trash. They have parties and free food and make sure you know that you are not invited or welcome to eat the food or participate in any way. They even have meetings that will include treats that you will not be included. It's appalling! And THEN all of their employees keep giving you some story as to why they feel it's ok to treat you so poorly. What a joke!
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Ames, IA – November 13, 2017
If you are a drone, you will be fine here. If you have a brain or an opinion of any source, this may not be your bag. The work is fine, the pay is great, the coworkers are mostly great and helpful, but management at all levels in the Ames plant is pretty much an unfunny joke.
pay, benefits, mind-numbing work
no reward for hard work, management treats you like you should do as they say without question and not complain, working 60+ hour weeks several weeks in a row, hot and sweaty
