    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    It took about 3 months for the company to contact me. There are hurdles in order to stop anyone from actually contacting about an interview or really following up at all.
    It's fairly frustrating to have to wait for so long for such a near-entry level position.
    Mostly the entire contact was cold and mechanical, the woman who called didn't even say the right name at first.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected about what my ideal boss would be like. Also hinted at lowering my salary expectations.   Answer Question
