Working at 3M
Benefits & Compensation
At 3M Canada, compensation has two components: base salary and variable pay. Variable pay may include sales commissions and annual incentive. You may also qualify for merit increases or promotions based on performance.
Annual Incentive Plan
This plan 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 in the long-term Incentive Plan. Stock options, stock appreciation rights and restricted stock units grants encourage management employees to increase their 3M stock ownership and align their financial interests with those of other 3M stockholders.
Each sales representative's pay includes a monthly base pay and sales incentives, paid monthly or quarterly, depending on business performance and the business you represent.
