    Business Management Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at General Mills.

    Interview Details

    1) Attended their company info session and went to their table at the career fair
    2) Invited to a special session after the fair for people they were seriously considering for BMA/internships
    3 1st round interview conducted with head recruiter. Very easy, was only asked 1-2 questions (where do you want to relocate/why do you like us?), and then for the remaining period, just talked casually
    3) 2nd round interview the next day, talked to current employee. Only asked 3-4 behavioral questions. Submitted a personality, behavioral, and math assessment later that day (math test is easy but asks you to sort and organize 5+ elements per problem with 1 minute/problem, kind of nervewrecking to finish on time)

    I was informed that I would be notified early the following week about final round interviews. I never heard back until this past Wednesday with a rejection email. My second round interview had been 2 weeks before.
