    Marketing Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at 3M (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Applied via email and got a response inviting me to take an online ability test. As far as I can remember there was a numerical data section and a critical reasoning section.

    I got past this stage and was asked for interview at 3M's offices within 8 days. I had to repeat the online test of the same level once I got into the offices. That took about an hour. Then I had a 2 person panel interview which contained the normal marketing/team-working questions. That lasted another hour. It all went quite well.

    The offices were brand new and well designed. There was a lot of office space for the number of employees I could see. Only thing I would say is that public transport to the location was not good. Dress code throughout was business smart.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were able to launch a new product into a market right now, what would you do?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    At the time of application I was a masters student in a very poor economic climate. The job had been offered at crica. 25-30k. I was willing to accept anything as I figured experience was more important at this stage of my career. I was offered 27k and took it. Only thing that took me by surprise, which was not advertised in the job spec was that it was a one year contract.
