    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at 3M (London, ON) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through Zip Recruiter. First had a quick phone call from HR i'm assuming this was a phone screen interview. I was then contacted to interview where I met with my now boss and HR.. Following that interview I received notice that had made it to the second stage of interviews. I then met with the boss's of the business division I would be reporting too. All four interviewers were very nice, they were also accommodating with interview times allowing me to reschedule because of a personal conflict. I then completed a phone interview in order for them the check my language skill. I was then offered the job on the premise of successfully completing a background check.
