    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at General Mills in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school and company website, missed the reception but was contacted for an interview. They asked basic questions at first, location and interest, etc. I wasn't asked to tell about myself, but instead, they kind of jumped into several behavioral questions. The recruiters all seemed outgoing and friendly, and gives me the impression that the workplace is challenging but somewhat laid-back.

We discussed my professional experience and she explained what the job was about. She then sent me a questionnaire by email that I had to fill in giving more details about my experience and explaining some of my achievements. She forwarded it to the Finance department for them to evaluate if they were interested in having a personal interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at General Mills in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got an email from a recruiter who was interested in my resume and invited me to their booth at the career fair/information session. Interview seemed a bit strained on their end- went straight into behavioral questions and never asked anything about my resume/experiences. There were two interviewers and they both kept looking at each other as if to see who was going to ask the next question. The technical questions were situations regarding a potato chip fryer and fruit roll ups. They asked questions to see how you would go about problem solving/maximizing efficiency. Overall the interview was not as comfortable/conversational as other interviews I have had, but was standard difficulty with regards to the questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Mills.

    Interview Details

    I applied for General Mills through my school. The questions were behavioral but the woman was typing what I said as I spoke, which made things a bit uncomfortable. She said she would get back to me a few hours later and never did. The questions were basic but she did not show interest so I found myself going on and on.
