    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Mills (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email for an initial phone interview a week later and a week after that an invitation for the in-person. Before the in-person interview, I was asked to fill out two behaviour- based and one decision-making test(took about 1.5 hours). On the phone, it was a mix of behavioural and technical questions (i.e. how do you validate a model, what would you do in x scenario). In person, you were given the same style of questions. The technical involved a 'code-review' case study, less than 20 minutes to understand the problem and give recommendations). Doable, but felt rushed.

    Met with a total of 7 people in a span of 4 hours.
