    I worked at General Mills full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexibile working hours and good facilities

    Cons

    The upper management does not judge you by the quality of the work you done but more by how you appease people

    Advice to Management

    Focus on work and not on politics

    Pilot Plant Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Golden Valley, MN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Golden Valley, MN (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and I was contacted a few days later for two 20 minutes phone interviews. I was later emailed to schedule an interview at the General Mills James Ford Bell Technical Center in Golden Valley, MN on Monday February 22, 2016. I met with the recruiting managers, the reliability manager and 3 team leads as well as a technologist. The whole interview took about 2.5 hrs including a tour of the plant. I really enjoyed the meeting and got to know more about the position. All the interviewers were very professional and very informative.The interview consisted of primarily behavioral questions about my prior work experiences. At the end of each interview, I had the opportunity to ask questions.
