    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to GM by a friend who was declining an offer. I got a phone interview from the hiring manager. After that I was invited to on-site interviews. I had 3 back-to-back interviews with stakeholders of the analytics team. The day was planned perfectly: trip from hotel to GM offices, breakfast with the hiring manager and another applicant to ask any questions, 3 interviews, lunch with an analytics consultant to ask any further questions and finally the trip to the airport. The visit was very pleasant, everyone is very nice and welcoming.

    Supply Chain Analytics Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a 30 min phone screening with one of the hiring managers and another consultant. Later that afternoon, I received an email to set up an onsite interview for the following week. I met with the recruiting manager at the General Mills HQs; she let me know a little about each of the interviewers. I then had 3 1:1 interviews with members of the supply chain team. To finish off the onsite interviews, I had an informal meeting with another supply chain member over coffee. She returned me to the recruiting office and one of the recruiters answered any last questions, gave me a swag bag, escorted me out and let me know they would get back to me the following week on their decision. They got back to me sooner and actually wanted to offer me one of 2 other positions which they thought would be better fits. The interviewers are looking to see if you will be a good long term fit with General Mills, not for just a single role.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me a time when you stopped a project early? How did you determine that it should not continue? Did you need to influence others on the decision; if so, how?   Answer Question
    • Where do you see yourself long term?   Answer Question

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They send you an online quiz with 18 deductive reasoning questions. You have 20 minutes to solve these. It's awful.   1 Answer
