Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), Covington, GA – January 26, 2014
Pros: very good pay and great workers and management
Cons: could be dangerous at times.
Very good company and team oriented. We worked 12 hour rotating shifts. The company treated their employees with the utmost respect. The hardest part of the job was when there was a system malfunction (could get very hot and messy. Overall I learned a lot thru the years and it would take a long time to explain.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Wellston, OH – January 7, 2014
Pros: fast pace, and something new everyday..
Cons: would have like to have drove the forklift longer..
operated forklift to get different materials for the pizza roll fillings for production on that day..Shred cheeses for the fillings. Recording the materials usage on the batch sheets..stronger than I thought I was picking up 33 pounds of block cheese for a hour at a time. I shocked myself.
General Employee (Former Employee), Shelbyville, TN – January 6, 2014
I worked 8 hour days, 4-5 days a week. The different tasks were simple and repetitive. It takes awhile to advance to a higher paying position. The management was o.k. They did their jobs, but, compared to management in other jobs I have worked for, General Mills/Select Staffing management did not stand out.
Scientist/Business Technical Manager (Former Employee), Golden Valley, MN – January 1, 2014
Pros: great benefits.
Very fast paced company. I learned how to work my way up the technical ladder from hard work analyzing samples in the lab using various laboratory techniques, then worked in method development for short time before being asked to manage the HPLC and GC labs. I worked with many types of personalities all with the same goal - completing our responsibilities – more... on time and to the best of standards. – less
Research and Development Scientist (Current Employee), Plymouth, MN – December 19, 2013
Great working environment. Typical day will be developing benchtop prototypes and then preparing for scale up in pilot plant. Day also involves meeting with cross functional team and update with manager. I have learned a lot about product development and project management.
Marketing & Sales University with continuous improvement mind set
Market Manager MENAT (Current Employee), Dubai, DU – December 8, 2013
Pros: leading strong brands performing in multiple categories with large talent pool, lot's of know-how, established operational process and procedures with extremely healthy hr policies
Cons: due to it's large size, slower rotation between roles and markets compare to the peers
In summary, Country Manager in General Mills has the full accountability of the business planning, execution and result of the market or region. And everything evolves around creating & executing. Obviously it's a big team and should be played among the functions in full harmony, hence being a team player is the number 1 skill to have to be succesful – more... in the organization. Hardest part of the job is to select the right priorities for the both current and upcoming fiscal, quarter, etc.. The region has lot's of potential and running after every opportunity could make the team lose the real big picture & focus. Most enjoyable part is, the team, industry itself (food) and continuously experimenting and improving ourselves. – less
