This pandemic has forced a lot of people to hit the unemployment line, but here's some good news; the General Mills plant in Belvidere is currently hiring for several different positions!

General Mills' website currently has openings in Belvidere listed for:

  • Line Mechanic
  • Refrigeration Operator
  • Skilled Operator or Forklift Driver
  • Storeroom Analyst/Purchaser

Qualifications for each of those positions differ, and so do the starting wages, but most of the jobs feature a 12 hour work day, 3on-2off – 2on schedule.

All of General Mills' open positions offer great benefits with vacation time and medical benefits available immediately.

I know several people who work for General Mills in Belvidere, and all of them say it is a great place to work, so I would jump on these opportunities ASAP. To apply online right now, just go to generalmills.com/careers, search for Belvidere, and click "apply" on the position you are interested in to start the process.

If going back to work in the midst of worldwide pandemic makes you nervous, perhaps you'll be comforted to know that General Mills takes the safety of their employees and products VERY seriously. The company has also stepped up their game in supporting families and people in need by donating food, and creating a program to help support the restaurant industry.

Sounds like a pretty darn cool place to work. Good luck!
