    I applied through college or university – interviewed at General Mills.

    Interview Details

    Met at a campus career fair, applied online, offered an initial interview. They make sure you are okay with relocation and ask you to rank your top 3 location preferences. Pretty general questions. Was invited for a second round the next day with a different interviewer. Also had to complete some personality assessments and interest inventories.

    I went through the college recruitment process. There was an information session followed by interviews the next day. The interview was relaxed and comfortable itself. It was behavioral but also gave the opportunity to discuss my resume.

    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.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at General Mills in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    General Mills came to our university's career fair & I was invited for an on-campus interview after meeting some of the current BMAs and the company's recruiter. First round consisted of behavioral questions. Was invited back immediately the next day for a second interview, which also was comprised of more behavioral questions. The second interview gave me a chance to ask more personal questions (the interviewer was a current employee). In addition, had to submit two online "assessments"--very easy, no prior preparation required. Was invited and flown out for third round interviews at one of the business centers, which gave me a chance to really gauge the company culture. General Mills really seems like a family and I enjoyed my entire interviewing experience.

    I applied online – interviewed at General Mills.

    Interview Details

    1st round: video interview
    2nd round: video interview
    3rd round: online assessments/office interview
    The video interviews were straight forward and informative. Despite no face to face connection, I was able to gain an understanding for the company culture.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at General Mills in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an on campus interview scheduled for two weeks after the career fair. Interview questions were split 50/50 between general information questions and behavioral based questions. Interview experience was very pleasant for me but despite my best efforts and a great interview performance, I was not asked to come back for the second round. Great company with a great culture. If you have anything below a 3.4 GPA, don't fool yourself into thinking you have a chance. This is an extremely competitive position.

    Interview Questions
    • Very basic behavioral based questions. Tell me about a time you used data extraction to support a claim, what happened and what was the outcome of the situation?   Answer Question
