Software Test Engineer (Current Employee) – Bethesda, MD – April 28, 2016
-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.

Production Operator (Current Employee) – Aberdeen, SD – May 21, 2018
Long hours and swing shifts are hard for life/work balance. Typical days are repetitive motions for packing supplies and running machines. Management changes too much. Work place culture can be competitive and people spread rumors easily.
incentives for good work
get attendance points for being sick, no real sick days
Work was fast paced and lots of hours every day but it was not stressful.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – May 17, 2018
One thing that made working for 3M great was that everyone worked as a team and got along. On top of that all the overtime made work much better because you are getting paid time and a half at that point.
Global Marketing and Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – May 15, 2018
3M is one of the finest corporations in the world. It has a training track for their management team that spans decades. They promoted from within most of the time. They required higher level management to have had a sales role at sometime in their career.

Chemical Processor (Former Employee) – Cordova, IL – May 11, 2018
I liked working at 3M, you get plenty of overtime if you want it and the pay and benefits are good. On the production floor you will work with a lot of dangerous chemicals that are reproductive hazards or can cause cancer or death so wear your proper PPE.
Pricing and Merchandising Analyst (Former Employee) – Maplewood, MN – May 10, 2018
My role was to assist with the duties of full-time employees in the transition from legacy contract management systems to SAP. Aside from some communication issues in Chargeback Management, my time there was enjoyable. The workplace was peaceful and the hours were very flexible, occasionally allowing me to work from home.The pacing was irregular- sometimes there was little to do, then everything comes in at once and it's pedal to the metal. need to be flexible ad able to work in high stress situations for short periods of time.
I had a good contracting agency that provided benefits
issues with process timing. Some weeks there was little to do, then everything would come in a week before deadline. Be prepared for times of high stress
Chemical Process Engineer Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Maplewood, MN – May 9, 2018
The work environment was very nice and coworkers were very friendly and understanding. Most enjoyable part of the job was flexibility in schedule. I learned many new skills such as scanning and using Microsoft Excel.
Manufacturing Technology Development Engineer (Current Employee) – St. Paul, MN – May 8, 2018
3M strives to make sure they benchmark everything against competitive companies, and therefore pay, benefits, work environment, etc. are absolutely average. No real incentive for high performers to stick around. Culture is VERY slowly transitioning to a more modern workplace, so some employees are utilizing a work-from-home arrangement. Many others are absolutely abusing the newfound freedom. Overall, they pay fine, are reasonably stable, and make for a fine place to hang out for 35 years until you finally feel death's cold embrace.
