Sow Farm Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas, IL – July 18, 2012
Very progressive company, very process oriented company challenging opportunities and good people to work with. I have learned that the primary focus of any job, particularly management jobs is to strive to acquired the right balance between family responsibilities, work and other activities. To keep close communications with supervisors when time is needed to refresh and renew. The hardest part of the job was to prioritize and stay organized.

Technician (Former Employee) – Iowa Falls, IA – July 27, 2017
I absolutely loved going to work. My coworkers were willing to help without complaints. Management was egar to teach me new things about the company and pig care in general. I learned so much through this company and wish they'd had barns in western Iowa, so I could work for them again.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – New Ulm, MN – April 26, 2017
I really enjoyed working at Christensen Family Farms. CEO, managers and supervisors where great with their employees. They had great benefits and paid their employees well. It was like one big family. Very laid back.
Much has changed from my time working with the founder and co-founders of Christensen Family Farms but the empire that remains today is a force to be reckoned with and I hope the best for them in their future endeavors.
Great benefits and employees were enjoyable to work with
Payroll and Benefits Manager (Former Employee) – Sleepy Eye, MN – April 20, 2017
For the 6 years I worked at Christensen Farms, I was able to enhance my skills. I loved working with the other Christensen Farms' employees and enjoyed helping employees with their benefit questions and enrollments. I was able to contribute in many ways by improving processes.
It was very hard to leave my job at Christensen Farms. I really enjoyed my time there. I was able to move up from a feed truck delivery guy into the assistant manager position . There is any opportunities to advance if you want to. My reason for leaving was due to my wife and I desiring to relocate to Florida.
Good place to work at with alot of help full co-workers and managers

Animal Caretaker (Current Employee) – Kansas, IL – June 28, 2016
You have good job security with a bonus program. The day goes by quickly you are not standing around in one spot all day. I feel that there could be improvements that would make people want to stay. I feel that upper management is clueless to what we need for the farms. You can't say that something works when you are not dealing with the headache everyday.
Job Security, Bonus Program, and the day goes by quickly
Good Place to work as long as you don't mind the smell
Animal Care Worker (Current Employee) – Ackley, IA – January 31, 2015
Good place if you like to be in charge of yourself you have a list of things to do but you can choose in what order to do them and if you have good time management the day really goes smoothly and you get into a routine that works best for you.
