    I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay Lots of benefits Work is not difficult or too physical Lots of overtime and opportunities to work

    Cons

    No work life balance for regular floor operators. However, upper management positions do have more time off and have more 1st shift positions. Lots of 12-hour days due to staffing. Very little communication from management as far as your personal performance Consistent short notice on work schedule (Sometimes you do not know until a Friday if you have to work the entire weekend, so you cannot really make plans outside of scheduled vacation days)

    Pros

    Good insurance and pay. Good vacation days

    Cons

    Too much things that are evil going on and surpervisors are fooled by leadership which most are eating up overtime pay and lying. Don't do random drug test on fulltimers or temps. A lot are coming high and drug deals going on.

    I have been working at General Mills for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Made investments and gained shelf space because General Mills is a large company with lots of money. Always moving people

    Cons

    Corporate care's only about money...no investment in people. This is a label company and not a people company. When other label in company doesn't perform then they close plants to improve thier bottom line

    I have been working at General Mills full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good 401K, benefits, and you get all of your vacation after 90 days. Some employees there will make you want to stay forever. Strong safety initiative!

    Cons

    Only 2 call in days. Vacation can be denied and they can switch your schedule daily. New employees walk out mid shift to pursue anything else.
