General Mills is proud to call Minneapolis, Minnesota, our home. This is where we started back in the 1860s, with two flour mills that revolutionized the industry. Over the past 150+ years, we’ve grown into a global corporation with $17.9 billion in net sales (2014).
Our hometown has grown right along with us, advancing into a robust center of commerce. In fact, MarketWatch has called the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul “The Nation’s No. 1 Metro Center for Business.” Over 20 Fortune 500 corporations are headquartered here, making the region a draw for professionals and families alike.
We have over 30 locations across the United States. They range from corporate offices and sales center to manufacturing locations.
Active Lifestyles in Minneapolis
The Twin Cities is also home to some of the best places to live in America. Money magazine has placed six of our communities on their “Best Places to Live” list, with a special nod to Eden Prairie. But that’s no surprise to those of us who live here. Few other metropolitan areas can offer such a wide choice of fun and active urban and suburban lifestyles.
- Over 100 Zagat-rated eateries, from pizza to ribs to sushi and more.
- Highest number of theaters per capita, outside of New York City.
- Six professional sports teams, with state-of-the-art arenas.
- The best financed parks and recreation services in America. More than 11,800 lakes of all shapes and sizes.
- A “Most Literate City” with great libraries and bookstores.
- Several shopping districts, including the Mall of America.
General Mills would not be one of the largest food companies on the planet without an exceptional supply chain operation. The coordinated expertise of our logistics, sourcing and manufacturing teams is an ideal example of the collaborative culture we enjoy here.
The manufacturing team works across plant and supply chain functions to establish goals, develop and execute strategies, and drive performance. Hands-on professionals with experience in processing and/or packaging systems or flour milling systems are in demand at General Mills.
We have over 30 manufacturing locations within the US that help us meet the demand of making sure the food people love is available at a location nearby. Opportunities for employment at these locations range from full time salary to part time hourly.
