Overall Reviews at General Mills

Good pay and benefits, bad plant closed 2015
Good pay and benefits. Management was ok. Some were really cool, others stab you in the back so they get their "golden tickets". Plant closed in December 2015. Nothing in the building since except a patio furniture place.

Strong Marketing Company with midwest values
Good company, brands and people. General Mills is a leader in the CPG Industry and a Marketing Powerhouse. Plan to work hard, but get rewarded for your work and get to have some fun along the way.

Very careless with poor management
Worked at General Mills for 7 years. They preach how big they are on safety and how " were one team that works together" I can tell you that's far from true. You have hourly employees on the floor and salary as in management. Management dont like to be told how to do their job. If you raise concerns about safety concerns or improvements it's one ear out the other. If you push the agenda to try and make it to what they preach about daily on safety and keep mentioning those concerns they will look for ways to get you out the door. You have team leads and leads out there whom team leads are part of the salary family and instead of them leading by example and being out on the floor they are in their office 90% of the time, at least on 2nd shift and nights. Yet will be first to criticize you on your job performance when they have not a clue what is even going on or how hard alot of the jobs are since they decided to eliminate some adding more tasks to jobs in the areas. Leads job title is considered working leads as in they help out if needed but that never happens. They rather do nothing even if it means someone having to do extra work. Hourly has been working 13 days on and 1 day off for the last 2 years while management gets guaranteed weekends regardless. I've been gone from that place for 3 months now and my family has noticed I'm more happier then when I was working there. Since my departure 3 months ago they have fired 4 people and 2 quit just in the department I was in. Th...more
ProsGood pay, benefits and 4 weeks of vacation
ConsPoor management, forced every weekend, sanitation, humidity, turn around ratio and fast paced/rushing

General Mills / DHL
I don't work there anymore but it was a good place to work. Not much room for advancement, but I knew what the position was when I accepted the offer of employment and was happy with the hours and compensation. If you like driving forklifts or order picking then this is the place for you. It's located right outside of fort Wayne passed airport expressway.

Hypocrisy, and BS
I wasn’t there for long, but training consisted of a week in each department and a test after each week (Seriously not enough time to adequately learn the scope of your work AT ALL!). If your not a excellent Spanish speaker you’ll be going nowhere pretty quick...get used to being in the way 9/10 even though you’re encouraged to shadow everyone your in the way, believe that. Upon being let go you can expect no professional explanation.
