• You’ve Received an Offer: What’s Next?

    • Man and woman walking and talking

      Congratulations, you have been offered a position with 3M! Starting a new position can be stressful, so we wanted to provide you with more details on what’s about to happen after officially accepting your offer to your first day.

      After you accept the position, you will receive a confirmation email from the recruiter that will have instructions for next steps.

      Within one business day of the confirmation email, you will receive an email from our background vendor, HireRight (noreply@hireright.com). You will be asked to review and complete the information requested.

      Once your sensitive data is received, we will email you additional information regarding your medical exam, which includes a drug test and medical questionnaire. If you are local to the St. Paul, MN area, your appointment will be held at 3M Center. If you are non-local, we will provide instructions to schedule your appointment in your local area using our vendor, MedTox.

      On average, these post-offer contingences can take 10 business days. If you have a previous employee agreement, that will be requested and reviewed during this time. Upon approval and clearing of all the post-offer contingences, you will receive an email that you have been cleared to hire.

      Your hiring manager will reach out to you to discuss your start date once you are cleared for hire. It is at this time that we recommend that you provide your formal resignation to your current employer, if applicable.

      3M typically starts all new employees on a Monday, unless there is a holiday to take into consideration. Once a start date has been confirmed, you will receive an email that includes instructions for New Employee Orientation and additional information to help build your new employee profile. You will have contact with your manager and recruiter throughout the process, and they will be there to help answer any questions and check in with you.

      On day one, new employee orientation will cover:

      • An introduction to 3M, its history and culture
      • A review of corporate policies
      • An overview of compensation and benefits
      • An introduction to corporate systems and resources
      • Building access and getting your 3M security badge
      • Meeting your team

      Congratulations again on becoming a 3Mer and good luck with your first day!
