I applied online. I interviewed at General Mills.
The company took the interview process for granted. Two long panels in a specific recruitment process where time is of the utmost importance. The two panels started later than the scheduled time and there were other forms of miscommunication between themselves causing a lot of confusion and delay between the processes. I was asked an inordinate number of questions, especially during the second panel, wherein with every answer the interviewer dug deeper into personal experience related questions. I still don't understand what the person was trying to achieve with that level of detailed inspection.
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."
