We are aware that job postings may have been made by people who claim to be recruiters for 3M Company, even using 3M employee names, but who are not affiliated with 3M. We have also been made aware that unauthorized individuals may have posed as 3M recruiters, made contact about job opportunities, and extended job offers via text message, instant message or chat rooms. These job postings and offers are not authorized by 3M.
Recruiters who ask candidates to submit unusual personal information like bank statements or utility bills, to pay a fee in order to be considered for a job, or to pay "start-up expenses" after being hired are not affiliated with 3M. 3M does not require candidates to make any type of payment to us as part of the recruitment process or job offer. The Federal Trade Commission has online resources for detecting job scams.
Positions posted on the 3M.com/careers site are legitimate. If you find a 3M posting on a site other than our careers site, verify its legitimacy before applying by visiting the Career section of our site and searching for the requisition number.
