Supply Chain Logistics & Sourcing Careers
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 and sourcing teams is an ideal example of the collaborative culture we enjoy here.
Operations planning, transportation, customer service and warehousing all fall under logistics, which is supported by state-of-the-art supply chain management and e-commerce systems.
Opportunities are available at our field locations and at our Minneapolis headquarters for tech-savvy professionals at all levels of experience. We look for analytical leaders with a bachelor’s degree in supply chain management, transportation and logistics, business management or industrial engineering.
The General Mills sourcing organization (also known as Purchasing or Procurement) manages an uninterrupted supply of materials and services, implementing strategies designed to offset inflation, globalize our supply chain, and improve our bottom line. We do this through supply and demand analysis, strategic negotiations, market and industry analysis, and category strategies.
Working in sourcing, you will have the opportunity to holistically manage a reliable and cost-effective global supply chain strategy designed to deliver high-quality ingredients, packaging materials, equipment, supplies and services to manufacturing and business operations. Collaboration with cross-functional partners such as marketing, research and development, manufacturing, logistics, and quality and regulatory operations is integral to your success as a sourcing professional.
Management Associate Programs
Both logistics and sourcing offer training programs for early-career professionals who want to gain core skills. Depending on the discipline, assignments may last up to 24 months. LMAs and SMAs should expect to explore several areas of responsibility within their first five years with us.
