As a 3mer, you’ll have opportunities to make a substantial impact, fueled by competitive pay, comprehensive quality benefits and recognition of your achievements.

Your Pay

Your 3M pay recognises the meaningful contributions you make to business results. Your pay may include two components: base salary and variable pay. Base pay applies to all employees and is linked to your individual performance each year. Variable pay is offered to eligible employees.

Annual Incentive Plan
For eligible salaried employees, this links a portion of your pay to company metrics. Based on company performance and eligibility, payments are made to employees annually.

Long-term Incentive Plan
Based on your job level, you may be eligible to participate. Includes stock options, stock appreciation rights, and restricted stock units grants for management employees.

Sales Incentives
Each sales representative's pay includes incentives paid monthly or quarterly, depending on business performance and the business you represent.
