Former Employee - Maintenance Team Leader in New Albany, IN

I worked at General Mills full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Benefits were fair. Lots of opportunities to take on additional work.

Cons

New Albany Pillsbury plant very unorganized. Union members not held to contract. Senior management let union members basically do what they please. No accountability for overtime yet junion salaried staff (team leaders) held to reduce overtime. Very much a 'Plan-of-the-Month' style of management. Senior management backs union members - not salaried staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard to hit a moving target. Give the floor managers 3 to 6 months to implement a plan and/or project. They need time to put a plan in place, monitor, and make adjustments. Changing the target every 30 days is just setting up the mangers for failure.
