    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Mills.

    Interview

    Interview was relatively difficult, considering it was entirely behavioral. People I spoke to were very friendly, but the interview questions definitely required a good amount of thought. I would advise any prospective interns to spend more time than normal researching the company. Besides several questions that made the interview harder, most questions were relatively generic.

    Logistics Management Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process at General Mills was great from the moment they flew me out of Tennessee to giving me a box of Lucky Charms ( My favorite) at the end. Everyone who I spoke to was extremely friendly and welcoming. The process began with breakfast with a previous LMA who had nothing but good things to say about the company followed by 3 behavioral interviews with members from the Supply Chain team whom were very knowledgeable in their discipline. Then we ate lunch with another LMA graduate who was a pleasure to meet as well. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a great company with sound values. HQ was awesome, cool offices and meeting rooms. I had a great experience and appreciate the invite and opportunity to interview.

    Tech Lead Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Prepare for a half day of many 30 minute interviews. You meet with leads, other developers, department heads, etc. They ask a lot of questions but don't really provide you with a whole lot of time to ask questions of your own, which I would say is the biggest downfall of their interview process. Overall, though, they are all very friendly. The preliminary phone interviews were great/easy.

    The worst part of the interview / application process is those online exams they make you take. Those have got to go!

    It seems a really great company to work for.. Under the right circumstances I would have accepted the job.
