We are a worldwide team of 39,000. And each day we bring passion and creativity to work.

Our devotion to community and planet drives the way we give back and do business.

Our brands - such as Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Haagen-Dazs, Annie's and Cascadian Farm, to name a few - are enjoyed in more than 100 countries on six continents.

No wonder a Harris poll ranks us as one of the top 20 companies in the U.S., home to our world headquarters.

In 2016, General Mills celebrated its 150th anniversary. (See it in 50 seconds, in this video). The company had its start in 1866, in Minneapolis, with the first flour mill of our predecessor (Washburn Crosby).


Hiring Heroes at General Mills

At General Mills, we believe that the unique skills and perspectives of veterans strengthen our company and our communities. Military experience aligns well with our values of integrity, innovation, respect, people development and superior performance. Veterans succeed here because of strong leadership skills, a global perspective, and an understanding of what teamwork really means.

Veterans Network

Hundreds of our employees are veterans, and we have benefits, policies and resources to support their unique needs. We also have an affinity network for veterans and friends of the military. The network has three pillars: Service, Leadership, and Recruiting and Retention.

Veterans Club

The Veterans Club is a group for employees who offer support to veterans, their families and friends through community outreach and service projects. The Club also serves as a source of information and education on veterans affairs.
