Pleasant experience overall. Had 2 interviews so far, one telephone and one in person. Questions were straight forward and were answered by referring to past experiences. Looking forward to a 3rd interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Mills in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. I applied through my university so i had to attend an information session and then interviewed the next day. The interview went well and the recruiter kept asking me to elaborate on experiences because she was actually interested in what I had done.

    I interviewed at General Mills (University, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Questions were simply all behavorial questions with little focus on long - term or short-term goals. No questions on why General Mills, why sales or why the CPG/Food industry. Very little background or information provided on the actual work I would be doing.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Mills in November 2007.

    Interview

    First I applied through my college job search system (resume only) and was told to attend their info session. I did and spoke with them again at the career fair. My resume was accepted and my first round of interviews was one-on-one on campus. I was notified later in the week about the second round interview and tests. For this, I took a test that we "were not expected to finish" that was a measure of our general intellectual ability. It included word and math questions. We were given information about a personality test we needed to take online over the next week. Finally there was a second one-on-one interview. A week or so later I was notified about the third round interview. I was flown to the sales office, given a tour of the building, shadowed someone in my desired position for 30 minutes, interviewed by the top brass in the office, and then taken to lunch. I went home and received an offer a week or two later.

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at General Mills in November 2010.

    Interview

    The first interview was a one-on-one interview with a high-ranking executive from the sales department(very nice guy, down to earth). After I passed that interview, I was interviewed by three other senior ranking executives via phone interview which also went really well and gave me a good impression of the company
