Great People, Tough Work
Operations Analyst, Supply Chain Division (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 July 2018
The people at General Mills are some of the most amazing coworkers I have had the chance to work with, with positive and friendly people across the departments. However, with the plateau of CPG in the marketplace, the company is in a tough position to raise market share, so a company that was once able to fill all 3 floors of its Canadian office can now fit everyone onto one floor. The expectation is for everyone to take their work home with them in order to complete their daily tasks, which leads to a hard work/life balance.
Pros
Friendly people, subsidized lunch, fitness centre
Cons
Long hours, management

Senior Analyst, Customer Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 May 2018
I can't say anything bad about working at General Mills. Quality people work there. Are you a people person? If not, you won't fit in. If so, perfect.
Pros
Best cafeteria on the planet (and it's subsidized)

Really busy traffic in the area

Internship
Associate Marketing Manager Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 April 2018
Worked at General Mills Canada for 4 months as an AMM intern. I was constantly challenged as I worked on business innovation and business management initiatives. Marketing at General Mills is not a 9 to 5 job.

Environnement agréable à travailler
Représentante aux ventes (Current Employee) –  Rive-Sud de Montréal17 December 2017
Produits très intéressant à présenter dans les épiceries, très bonne clientèle d'établie, toujours des ventes répétitives de produits mais beaucoup d'annonce circulaire pour appuyer les ventes. Budget pour le bill back à offrir aux clients, très avantageux pour les gérants. Trop grand territoire, et beaucoup de kilométrage.Objectifs réussis depuis le début (2 ans) à 100%.

Account Development Manager, Longo's (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 September 2017
Not a bad place to work, just wasn't the right fit for me. Almost all of their categories are in decline yet they still have outrageous growth targets year after year.
Pros
The young employees.
Cons
Corporate life and politics.

Millwright
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 August 2017
Read the fine print: "AS OTHER DUTIES AS ASSIGNED". If your expecting to repair/ diagnose problems, maybe 25% of your work, the remaining 75% is filling in for operations lack of staff or skill. Tools, uniforms (if you want them) are provided. Being a GMP plant there are regulations to follow. Clean the tools, the tool boxes etc. Inspections done in lockers, your tool boxes to insure these regulations are being followed. 12 hr. work days, weekdays and weekends. Within the same week expect a night shift and be asked to also work a day shift, or reversed. The pay is slightly below average, but every year drops lower as the annual increase is low. The benifits are on par with any other plant so there fair. The work environment is cold, wet but relatively clean. Coverage is1 electrician and 2 millwrights.
Pros
Uniforms and tools provided
Cons
To regulated, forced OT
