Lab Technical Aide

"I've worked as a lab tech aide at 3M for over 3 years now, and as expected it has proven itself to be a strong company that highly values its employees. The company is very large and the community is strong with most everyone I worked with being happy they were employed at 3M. The lab I work in isn't very aesthetically appealing but the equipment we can get is very good. The pay is not very competitive for the position I am in, but the hours are extremely flexible, and they can work around nearly any schedule. A fantastic job to have while in school."

3M Employee

"I worked for 3M for 2 years and hired and built an amazing engineering team that would work cross functionality with others teams on site. I spent large amount of my time developing the team to and challenging them to improve personally and professionally. I had a great working relationship with everyone except my boss as I believe he was threatened by the attention I was getting from 3M corporate VP’s as I lead an extensive successful launch of Visuant daily management software for our division. That is when he began to undermine me and try to turn everyone against me! I was only doing what was best for the great 3M! My team still calls to check on me every week to share their there appreciation for the leadership I gave them!"
