Used to be a good place to work
Sr. Scientist II (Former Employee), Golden Valley, MNNovember 19, 2014
Pros: some benefits
Cons: tense place to work
Used to be a good place to work. Tough place now. Lots of tension everyday. A mix of good manager with really bad ones.
If business goes bad (kind of common these days), prepare for lay-off's. Tough to advance, very competitive. Some good colleagues.

Left hand does not know what right hand is doing. The compensation and benefits we're good but not worth the micro-management.

this was a very physically demanding job, however, I worked with some great people. Management could be better at discerning when to be so strict with policy!

An unorganized and unfair corporation.
Packer (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 23, 2014
Cons: short breaks, no benefits, low pay, not many hours.
A typical work day would be me coming into work putting on my goggles and hair net. Standing in my area waiting for a box to fill up so I can pick it up and put it onto the next line. I really didn't learn much from this job. The actual job that had me doing can be done in everyday life, I believe. My co-workers were quite friendly. Very respectful. – more... The hardest part about my job would probably not being able to work at all. There would be days were the employees come to work and would get sent right back home. This could happen for many days before some of these employees can even work. Just a lot of wasted time was involved. The most enjoyable part would probably be the use of time. If you stay focused and pay attention to what your doing, time goes by fairly fast. You would also get a lot more done and possibly be a head. – less

Good company, slow to react though.
Team Leader 1 (Former Employee), IowaOctober 20, 2014
Pros: good work / life balance (manager depending)
Cons: training opportunities can get sidelined for production.
Overall a good company to work for. In the manufacturing sector you WILL move however, every 2-4 years. Declining sales in the cereal and yogurt categories have forces severe job cuts and closings of plants. This reflects the conservative (and slow) nature of GMI.

Mixing Technician (Current Employee), Lodi, CAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: paid benefits, 3 30min breaks during 8 hr shift
Cons: micro managing dept managers, the illusion of 1 culture, lack of communication, hrs notice of working on weekends.
I understand it's a business, and must continue to run as such, but not being able to plan for family or other functions for the weekend does put a strain on a person. You may not know you're working on that weekend until 3p Friday. Not a week ahead, not 2 weeks. But only a few hours. I have learned a great deal from them, good and bad. My company is – more... closing soon, and just like a previous plant closure, I will probably miss my co-workers the most. Most of our management staff could use a bit of brushing up on people skills, and not just micro manage and go home for the day at 3, 4 and 5p while we're there 24hrs a day. My direct supervisor on the other hand is probably hands down the most dedicated person I've ever encountered. And she actually does consider us in my dept, her family. – less
