    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online with an employee referral after finding job on Indeed. After getting contacted by HR I had a phone interview that was around 30 minutes.

I had to fill out my profile including job history for a second time, complete 2 personality tests and a logic test. The onsite interview process was great and took around 4 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • The logic test was very difficult and tricky. It is timed and you have about 2 minutes per question.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Golden Valley, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Mills (Golden Valley, MN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Initially had a brief 15 minute phone interview, the in person interview was long, approximately 4 hours. I met with 3 managers, 1 team member, 1 HR assistant, 1 team specific HR member and 1 IT HR manager. All interviews were in 30 minute blocks with the exception of 1 team member (1 hour) and the 1 HR assistant (15 minutes).

    The HR manager questions could have and I would recommend, should be combined. All 3 asked predominately the same questions, each had 1 or 2 different questions. The opportunity to spend time with the team member was wonderful, I was taken on a tour of the Corporate Offices in Golden Valley, he answered questions I had regarding culture, career opportunities etc.

    The interview portion with the team specific HR member was not very beneficial and again I would recommend removing that portion from the interview process as the HR manager provided a much clearer insight into HR related questions.

    Overall a very positive experience, just a little too lengthy, which could easily be resolved.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were generic PM related questions, some questions regarding Agile experience, have you worked with a difficult person etc.   Answer Question

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at General Mills (Golden Valley, MN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a three part online test and a 4.5 hour interview with 5 people. The interview in person was fast and pretty relaxed. The problem I have is when there was no offer and I asked for feedback they said they cannot offer any due to company policy. How is someone supposed to know what they could improve on for future consideration???

    MANUFACTURING and ENGINEERING ASSOCIATE Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Horrid experience. Lost all interest in the company when I toured the plant. The environment was chaotic to say the least. Workers were packing pie dough as fast as they could into packaging.

    The interview in Chanhassen was foolish. At no time did I feel like the interviewers actually cared about my situations. I feel it was a waste of time for both parties. Don't waste your time with this company.
