General Mills reviews



Albuquerque, NM - May 7, 2020

A Company That Takes Care Of Its Employees

I have only worked for General Mills for a short period of time, but I see myself staying with this company for a long time. This company offers great employee benefits and competitive wages. The safety of their employees come first and upper management is welcoming of employees that want to address concerns or improve the work environment. There is a lot of opportunity for growth, which is great for someone like me who hates becoming stagnant at any job. I learn something new everyday and this job really allows me to expand my skills.

Fun place to work!

There was never a dull day there! The most enjoyable part of the job was the COE Admin Team and the knowledge they share for you to grow! Wonderful support system they have going!

They care about there workers..It was a great experience. The company cared about needs of others..Safety was a big plus...You always have an opportunity to advance to a higher position..



Wilmington, IL - April 23, 2020

Overall it’s a great company I never had any problems working there .. everyone got their job done and we worked as a team doing it .

Transportation provided for temp workers who don’t live in the area , decent timed breaks and a nice fast paced environment in and out as long as everyone is getting their job done


Maintenance Mechanic

Cedar Rapids, IA - April 22, 2020

Great pay, poor atmosphere

Pay was great, very clicky environment. Regardless if your doing your job correctly if you don't "fit in" you'll get pushed out as fast as you got in. Communication sucks there. And trust no one. Lot of snakes that watch over you act like your friend but are really trying to find a way to get you out.


Manufacturing Technician

Covington, GA - April 22, 2020

Hard work

Very disappointed in General Mills a Fortune 500 company. Interviewing process was long. Workplace culture was terrible. Employees did not treat each other with respect and lacked integrity. HR failed. Discrimination.


Material Handler

Milwaukee, WI - April 18, 2020

Productive and Fun Enviornment

Working here was one of the best experiences of my life. Its a very fast paced place to work, with room to move around and grow within the company. Highly recommend for employment.



Cedar Rapids, IA - April 17, 2020

I enjoyed working their

I met a lot of great people and we had good times I enjoy it their they are just letting us go so I would like a more permanent job at this time that’s full time


Chewy Machine Operator

Belvidere, IL - April 16, 2020

long hours

They offer optional overtime that in fact is not really optional. Was extremely burned out. If sick with the flu or anything like that even with a doctors note saying dont go to work would not except it or excuse you from work.


Technical Operator, Level 2

Carson, CA - April 14, 2020

Good company to advance

Great company to work for. You can learn new skills. Advancement in career is encouraged and help is given to achieve all of your goals. Salary compensation is good.


Retail Sales Manager

New York, NY - April 12, 2020

Great Company

Spent 10 years in various positions. Great products and great benefits I had promotion opportunities and the training needed to succeed. It was a sad day to see them go away.



Belvidere, IL - April 10, 2020

People are what I miss the most

12 hour shifts makes it hard to have a home life. Always ran short staffed. Would always get mandatoried to work on days off and are still 12 hours. Takes about half a year to replace a position with someone from the outside and by the time the person is trained and efficient on the job, a year has gone by. When you get hired in, you get promised the opportunity for advancement within the company then pretty much immediately you realize that moving up is limited. The longer you work there the less chance you'll have of moving up within the company. These roles are pretty much reserved for people that suck up the entire time. These people barely do any work, their only job is to suck up to management. The better worker you are as a reward you get to do two jobs at one time. If you can deal with that, this is the company for you.


Manufacturing Technician

Covington, GA - April 5, 2020

Excellent Company

Excellent company to work for. Anyone else who says otherwise is delusional! Period. Culture is great, pay structure, benefits are great. Overall, awesome!


Facilities Technician

Wellington, OH - March 30, 2020

I think the overall culture in the plant lacks diversity

Overall the job isn’t bad for this area as far as pay goes. The culture in the plant is stale and I really don’t think the company in general pays much attention to this.


Safety Coordinator

Corporate Minneapolis mn - March 28, 2020

Too Many Chiefs

I was in a small group of 7 which had 3 leaders. We had so many meetings that were pointless. Parking was a hassle in the 5 story attached ramp and it made it impossible to leave for lunch or find a spot when you return or arrive late. Workers are stuck there all day and groups rarely interact making a dull atmosphere.


Purchasing and Payroll Coordinator

Carson, CA - March 23, 2020

Productive and fun work environment

You must be able to adapt to your environment. Being able to take on different adhoc requests aside from your day to day work. Be excited to learn more and work with your business partners.


Maintenance Technician

Murfreesboro, TN - March 23, 2020

Good place, lot of hours

Money to be made if don’t mind working a lot. Sometimes there isn’t any work. It’s all over the place but you can usually find a happy medium. Lot of cleaning


Team Leader/Supervisor

Hannibal, MO - March 19, 2020
