I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at General Mills in August 2008.
Interview Details – The process took less than a week. After phone interview, they had me flying next day to the plant. I was interviewed on Tuesday morning and had an offer next morning. There were 4-5 interview sessions, one with each manager e.g. plant, operations, department head, and logistics. There was a lunch session where I met with other employees that were holding similar position as the one I was being interviewed for. There was a brief plant tour, a personality test and an a skills test - general math, analysis etc. About 40 -50 questions and about 30 seconds for each question. There was also a personality test on line before the interview day that was 90 minutes long i believe.
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. You can get a grand or two more but thats about it for TL II position.
The process took 2 months - interviewed at General Mills in January 2012.
Interview Details – Phone screen by a corp recruiter, followed a week or so later by a phone interview with plant HR, followed by another phone interview with plant management. Finally got a call to come up and interview at the plant in person. Took a personality test (Hogan) and an IQ type test. (wonderlic). Took about 10 days to get the offer. Standard behavioral questions, they are looking to assess key attributes and will probe until they get a complete answer. Plant tour was also part of the morning. Four 1:1 interviews, assessment, and a plant tour took around 5 hours.
Interview Question – Very standard questions about decision making, results leadership, coaching barriers, etc. View Answer
Negotiation Details – The offer was in line, I did not feel the need to negotiate. Since I moved from another company in a similar role, I knew what the market range was for the position. Benefits package was pretty comparable to what I have seen.
