Pros: the company treated people well. good benifits, and pay. a very clean place to work for a cereal and cake factory.

Sales representative assistant (Current Employee), Gilbert, ArizonaJune 8, 2014
A typical day working as a sales representative assistant includes consulting with various managers, lifting 25-50 pound boxes, setting up displays in various store to promote general mills products, and tracking which products are selling and which products are not. I have learned how to work in a fast-paced environment and how to communicate with – more... others well. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my boss because I really admire her. – less
