    interviewed at General Mills (University, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Questions were simply all behavorial questions with little focus on long - term or short-term goals. No questions on why General Mills, why sales or why the CPG/Food industry. Very little background or information provided on the actual work I would be doing.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at General Mills in November 2007.

    Interview

    First I applied through my college job search system (resume only) and was told to attend their info session. I did and spoke with them again at the career fair. My resume was accepted and my first round of interviews was one-on-one on campus. I was notified later in the week about the second round interview and tests. For this, I took a test that we "were not expected to finish" that was a measure of our general intellectual ability. It included word and math questions. We were given information about a personality test we needed to take online over the next week. Finally there was a second one-on-one interview. A week or so later I was notified about the third round interview. I was flown to the sales office, given a tour of the building, shadowed someone in my desired position for 30 minutes, interviewed by the top brass in the office, and then taken to lunch. I went home and received an offer a week or two later.

    Interview

    The first interview was a one-on-one interview with a high-ranking executive from the sales department(very nice guy, down to earth). After I passed that interview, I was interviewed by three other senior ranking executives via phone interview which also went really well and gave me a good impression of the company
