Business Management Associate Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Mills in March 2015.

Interview Details

Met through career fair and applied through school website. Was emailed and was told that I had been selected for an interview. Went in for the interview, very informal, but pretty awkward. Questions caught me off guard a bit. The interviewer was very nice but was typing away the whole time which was pretty nerve-wracking. Was told that I'd know if I got to the 2nd interview (which was the next day) by that night. Did not receive a phone call or email which I thought was very rude, I at least expected a rejection email.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at General Mills in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university. Asked to interview. First round all behavioral, invited back for another the next day. Got through. Then 600 question personality test! tedious. 20 question deductive reasoning test was tough, but doable. Invited to final round at HQ. 3 30 minute interviews with higher level management. Everyone was incredibly nice, very helpful. HQ is amazing. The questions are never tricky or too difficult always straight forward and will work with you to find out more about your answer.

    Great interview process, very friendly, professional environment. It was a little intimidating at first, but General Mills does a great job at making you feel welcome, and allowing you to be yourself throughout the process.

    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.
