Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – October 20, 2015
Worked for CHS for several years and really enjoyed working for the company. They have great benefits and offered many opportunities for growth and development. Recent changes in leadership and new leadership lacked providing direction.
The company is so big that each department has its own culture.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – South Sioux City, NE – July 29, 2016
Worked for CHS for 5 years and the people that work there are great. The management team are unwilling to hire from within and give no direction to employees to grow. Communication is unheard of. Bad employee to management relations.
Human Resources (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – July 25, 2016
CHS is a diverse organization with fourteen business units. Due to our diversity there is no "typical day", which makes it fun and challenging. If you are looking for a company where you can make a difference, this is the place for you! Co-workers and customer owners are truly like family. There is so much to do, prioritizing is the biggest challenge. Leadership competencies are: Integrity, Accountability, Owner Focus, People and Talent Focus, and Enterprise Collaboration.
Farmer owned cooperative, employees are like family, commitment to helping our farmer owners grow, excellent benefits, flexible work hours

Office Manager/Safety Leader (Former Employee) – Tillamook, OR – October 16, 2015
Working for CHS Inc under the Energy Division was a great experience. The company is a large Fortune 100 company but feels more like a family. Safety is the number one priority, and you feel from Corp. that they truly care about you. They offer training and advancement opportunities.
Sr. Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Creston, IA – September 21, 2015
CHS is a wonderful company to work for, especially as a Repair Tech. Heavy work load, but wonderful teamwork. A company that is truly all about the employee. Although I had to leave because I continued to contract lung infections while working in the high dust environment, CHS stood behind me in every way, including the transition back to full time self employment.
Great pay and benifits
Very long hours, and sometimes many days from home
Made sure all equipment was in perfect working condition prior to start up. Routine check ups of the plant. Maintenance conducted on anything that need repair. This included fabricating, replacing, installing, and housekeeping of facility.
co workers and managers was cool you would have to be there at 6am ready to go work was m-f and weekends off sometime youd get extra days off due to weather you got to be outside and you meet alot of new people
forklift operator and Quality Assurance (Former Employee) – Hutchinsons, KS – September 9, 2014
I enjoyed this job due to the physical requirements. In the warehouse a typical day started with wrapping finished pallets from the day before, setting up all orders to be loaded on trucks. After we started putting products onto pallets. 50lb bags were transferred from a large pallet to a smaller one. Usually 3 bags per tier and 11-12 stacks high. Management was always around making sure safety guidelines were followed. We usually worked in 5 man teams, 4 people doing the lifting and one driving the forklift. The hardest part of the job was keeping trainees motivated enough to want to do the work. We went through so many people it was hard to keep them trained and vigilant. I enjoyed the mental challenge, and I never stopped learning. It kept my attention from the first day until my last.
mentally and physically challenging
keeping new employees at the job for more then a week.
Independent assignment to create a dynamic Excel spreadsheet for domestic property tax accruals
ACCOUNTANT (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – August 7, 2014
I arrived each morning before 8 am to prepare for the day. At the beginning of the assignment, I conferred with the tax department on what the information described and the calculations produced on each of the 76 property tax forms. Then, with the appropriate understanding and knowledge gained, I created a complex and dynamic excel spreadsheet for each location that would calculate a monthly property tax accrual to enter in the company's accounting system. Therefore, if you wanted to determine the property tax accrual as of July, you just select the month of July in the calendar drop-down list and the spreadsheet would display the automatic calculations for each location according to that month. I really appreciated the help I received from the employees in the Tax Department and feel the hardest part of the job was learning the Excel features needed to make the data calculate according the tax forms and produce each monthly property tax accrual correctly. Thus, the most enjoyable aspect of the assignment was being able to learn, improve, and use my Excel skills to create a complex yet dynamic spreadsheet to be easily used when simply selecting any month from a drop-down menu.
expanding tax knowledge with property tax exposure and improving excel skills.
length of time spent researching excel features to accomplish calculation goals.
CHS is an amazing Fortune 100 company! I managed the loaded truck logistics, tracking and tracing movement of Crop Nutrient products across the United States. Very challenging position that required a "can do will do" attitude. The management team was very supportive and I was granted a lot of freedom to implement cost effective programs.

IT (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – January 29, 2014
Communication between and within departments is very bad. Pay differs a lot between departments. Management does not advertise other jobs within CHS. Watch your back, anything goes wrong and they need to pick someone to blame.
long hours, everyone is stressed out and putting more effort into watching their back then anything else.
