Truck driver (Former Employee) – Tipton, IN – October 31, 2016
First off they have a bad dot rating, so they ride the drivers like there all rookies! Crazy safety rules that make no sense. The D.C. I worked out of had a very bad manager and would lie to you constantly!! I ended up having to deal with some mental health issues and that's when the manager made stuff up and fired me! What shocked me was corporate had his back the whole time even through the lies!! Sad I wasted 4 years there thinking it was gonna be something and all the time management was just blowing smoke up my buttI learned that it doesn't matter how good of a job you do it's the ones who know people that get ahead in this business!!
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Wyoming, – October 7, 2016
Great place to work in general. They provide good compensation and have tremendous benefits. They hire good people who are devoted to their work and their customers. I would be happily working there if I wasnt laid off.
Operational Accountant (Former Employee) – Loveland, CO – May 30, 2016
People at the corporate site in Loveland were terrible to work with and didn't allow you have a work life balance. They weren't very people orientated and looked for ways to get rid of you. They don't promote promotions and even if you got a better position with more responsibilities and possible longer hours, they don't compensate for the promotion. They try pigeon hole you into one position. Many people moved on from I was working there including myself. They start you off at a terrible salary despite your prior accomplishments and/or degrees.
I'm working on my 5th year her and I've had only one pay raise of .39 cent. Taken on extra duties and responsibilities. Took classes to advance in my work area, all my reviews were satisfactory and still no pay increase. Spoke with other admin coordinators and they have been here less time than me and their manager has given them yearly or by yearly raises. .39 cent for 4 years of work is pathetic and wrong to an employee.
Pretty laid back. Didnt offer much recreation during off season
Application Specialist (Former Employee) – North Salem, IN – January 22, 2016
They had good equipment and updated frequentlly, Usually every 5 years. During the busy season the hours could get long.The technology has expanded in the Ag Business. Overall the co-workers have been good, But you will have the occasional bad apple in the bunch. hardest part is keeping up with the new technology. I enjoyed being in the field.
We did get free lunches occasionally and a ham or turkey for Christmas
Internship (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, IN – November 10, 2015
Crop Production was a great place to work with great management. It was about growing personally and bettering yourself. The Northern Indiana division was a great crew to work with. The best part about working at Crop Production is having great friends that you also work with. Everyday was different from what I do daily.

Truck Driver/Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Big Lake, MN – September 9, 2015
I have been working at many jobs within this facility. Most of the time I would start between 5 and 7 in the morning and work until the management told me to go home. I am a seasonal worker that works April 15 thru August 1. Some years I have worked up to October 15. The management that I work with is excellent.
Lunch provided on safety meeting day
When the weather is too wet for farmers in the fields we do not work
fun place to work besides for amount of hours worked
Applicator (Current Employee) – Marissa, IL – July 9, 2015
I run sprayers in spring/summer time to kill weeds and insects in farmers fields so they can have great yields on crops. When not spraying I keep my sprayer maintained and serviced so its ready to be used when the time is needed. The biggest thing that bothers me working here is the amount of hours I work which would be 14 to 18 hours a day 7 days a week for up to a month or longer.
Truck Driver and Heavy euipment operator (Former Employee) – Millen Ga – August 17, 2015
A typical day of work was transferring chemicals and fertilizer. I learned how to multitask and public speaking. The management was ok and the hardest part of the job was the weather. The most enjoyable part of the job is the seasonal functions.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IL – August 23, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management at the local level. Continuation in growth and development of oneself.The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learing from them.
slave (Former Employee) – Crawfordsville, AR – October 20, 2014
You will only get far in this company if you know a customer. The guy who cuts our grass got some BS job title and a company truck all because he knows a customer and ALL he does is mow. He never even has to step foot on the lot. And the secretary is married to the salesman now, so she gets paid 25 hrs a week and has maybe been here a total of 3 hrs in 3 months. Terrible ethics by this company.
90+ hour work weeks, no credit for the work you do
