Who We Are

 

We exist to make food the world loves. But we do more than that. General Mills is a place that prioritizes being a force for good, a place to expand learning, a place to explore new perspectives and a place to reimagine new possibilities, every day. We look for people who want to bring their best — bold thinkers with big hearts who challenge one another and grow together. Because becoming the undisputed leader in food means surrounding ourselves with people who are hungry for what’s next.


Overview

We create meaningful products and packaging through a culture of innovation. Our campus hires can start in one of two areas and over time, we encourage and enable movement across these and other areas within Innovation, Technology & Quality (ITQ).


R&D Development Program:

The General Mills R&D Development Program is a great way to kick-off your career. As part of the program, you will have 2-3 robust experiences in your first few years at General Mills, building broad experience in technical foundations, functional depth, and professional development. The program allows candidates to demonstrate leadership, embrace a learning mindset, build a strong network of peers, develop business context, and learn the General Mills and ITQ culture.

Interns will experience a robust 10-week program leading business critical projects.
