    I have been working at General Mills full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - very competitive benefits, RRSP matching, car for Sales
    - very intelligent and hard-working employees, especially our leadership team

    Cons

    - significant downsize in last couple of years has impacted culture and stress levels
    - CPG is a high-pressure environment given its declining trends

    Advice to Management

    - with less people managing more work and more deliverables, be understanding, and provide more resources (time, support, training) to ensure we can manage these complexities.

    Application

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