  1. Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at General Mills (United States)

    Interview

    Recruiter was proactive and wanted to hire a SDS for their eCommerce division. She then scheduled the tech interview with someone who has about 2-3yrs of experience and also a Sr Data Scientist. It was obvious that he lacks experience. At the conclusion, he replied that he thinks that I am a fit for the role. A few days later, I received negative response concluding the interviews.

    The hiring manger never spoke with me. I was told that they are hiring like crazy! My interview was similar to another review but mine did not make it to codality.

    Waste of time.

Annette Frawley works in our Law dept. as senior counsel, intellectual property. She says: “I wanted to work for Betty Crocker at the age of nine. I didn’t realize at the time that Betty Crocker was a fictional character, but I knew the products with her name on them meant quality and were quite often present on the table during meals, family holidays, birthdays, etc. I remember the day I told my mom I had been hired at General Mills; she reminded me of what I had said as a kid. My instincts about the company at age nine weren’t wrong. I love working at General Mills with teams and individuals who care so much about each other and the consumers they serve. And who are so passionate about quality, innovation, the environment, engaging with those who choose our products and with those who do not choose our products, the farmers in our supply chain, giving back, making a difference in communities of various shapes and sizes. I love being able to still feel a connection to my farm roots. I am humbled by the caring, talented people I am so lucky to work alongside of each and every day."
