Clerk (Former Employee) –  Covington, LAMarch 10, 2018
The best part of the job is leaving for the day.
Work culture is a nightmare including long term employees with zero talent & little to do. They have plenty of time for on-line shopping and surfing the net. This is NEVER checked. HUGE turnover.
Pros
Employees have benefits.
Cons
Hamster in a wheel type jobs.

Not paid enough and expect you to work any hours.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Enid, OKJanuary 17, 2018
The company is not bad but they hire kids with degrees right out of school and make them supervisors. It makes for a bad combination. They lack leadership and people skills. For instance, the supervisor at the Enid elevator has a god complex, listens to nobody and his idea of making people work is to belittle them and threaten there jobs on a daily basis.
If you do decide to apply here, watch out for yourself and watch your back. The supervisors will throw you under the bus to save there own skin.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Bad supervisors

Seasonal Scale Operator (Former Employee) –  West Memphis, ARDecember 26, 2017
The day starts with pre-shift meeting about the day's plan and safety then you get to your stations. The agriculture industry is one of those industries where growing up on a farm guarantees you a spot anywhere you go and if you're not but you get a job in it then you're pretty much going nowhere.
Pros
The hours during harvest
Cons

Terrible management!
General Laborer/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Jeffersonville, INNovember 20, 2017
Poor management. They take kids from college and throw them into a supervisor position with them not having much job experience. Their supervisors are young and dumb, don't know how to talk to people and when they do talk to people, they usually have attitude. They want to talk to you like you are a dog and you just take it. Not how it works, kiddos. Great benefits and pay but it's not worth getting walked on over. Even the big wigs are shady, everyone in the offices are shady. You try and tell them about their supervisors and they just stare at the floor. Management sucks something fierce.
Pros
Benefits and pay
Cons

Employee (Former Employee) –  Covington, LANovember 14, 2017
Corporate office managers are detached and unaware on a good day and rude and mean spirited on their worse days. If you go to work to just get a check and work environment isn't a priority, it's bearable. Otherwise, keep looking.

Busy during harvest
SCALE OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Perryton, TXOctober 25, 2017
Great balanced work/life until harvest times when everything seems to be happening at once, but you do get paid well for overtime. It's not too big of a company too, which is nice.

Nepotism
Grain Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Saint Louis, MOSeptember 1, 2017
The corporate level of this company is white male influecened. Any person out of that circle prepare to be placed on the back burner. I would not recommend this company because if you don't know someone in the upper rank or have a connection outside of work you won't get far. Be advised.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Nepotism and Racial discrimination

Not a good company
Elevator Operator (Former Employee) –  Osceola, ARAugust 24, 2017
There is no work/life balance. You know nothing until the very last minute and hours are never set. Grain isn't a good field to work in, especially at CGB. No advancement unless you know somebody or are family, opportunities are not passed around evenly.

Incredible benefits and little bureaucracy
Director (Current Employee) –  Covington, LAAugust 14, 2017
The far majority of the people at CGB are really down to earth, good people. The senior management is highly approachable and open to suggestions.

Due to the nature of the agriculture industry, the people who work at the elevators, do a lot overtime during harvest. I work at the corporate office. The parking lot isn't full until 8:15am and clears out pretty quickly at 5:00. I often work late and there are just a few others here.

The company has grown a lot in the last five years and continues to acquire new businesses. They are doing a lot of the right things to transition from a medium to large sized company.
Pros
Best 401K Company contribution ever
Cons
A bit behind in technology investment

Typical cubicle lifestyle with friendly management
Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Mandeville, LAMay 23, 2017
Day to day work was:

* 8:00AM Arrive at the office

* 9:00AM Short 15 minute meeting between all of the developers to discuss what you did yesterday and what you planned to do today

* 11:30AM-12:30PM Go to lunch

* 1:30PM Occasionally discuss current project with supervisor

* 4:30PM Email supervisor and team lead to see if they need something specific

* 5:00PM Sign out, stash changes, go home


There is a yearly crawfish boil where the whole department is invited to come. It was a great way to meet higher-ups.
Pros
Good people to work with, management were developers so they understood the frustration of interruption while programming
Cons
Cube lifestyle, developers also handled software support as an on-call rotation

Great place to work!
Personnel Specialist (Current Employee) –  Covington, LAMarch 24, 2017
Every day is a busy day. CGB continues to grow so there are plenty of opportunities for those that know how to manage their time and be productive!

There are times where we work longer hours but if you come from a farming background, you understand harvest and the need to work through this period.

With that said, everyone is on equal footing to progress as fast and as high as their abilities will take them.
Pros
Career growth and an opportunity for a yearly bonus.
Cons
If you can't think on your feet and make good decisions, you won't have a career here.

Mount Carroll savanna
Outside labor (Former Employee) –  Savanna, il Mt. Carroll ilJanuary 2, 2017
I worked there for a good 5 years. The pay sucks. The raises suck. The management is horrible. They don't care about there employees and they talk down on you all the time. They only care about themselves. They have a project manager that is a total jack wagon. The one reason why a lot of employees hate going to work the next day. They hire managers that have no grain handling experience. Which if you want to work here you need it. If you don't want to be sick all the time from allergies I advise you not to work here. There's a lot of dust.
My advice don't work here it's a joke of a company.
Pros
Health insurance
Cons
The whole company

You work outside, always something to do, great if you like using your hands and working with many different people, and worrying with machinery. Good pay, but quick to lay off.

Poor work conditions, horrible family life, underpaid.
Operator (Current Employee) –  Cahokia, ILDecember 12, 2016
The company does not care about family life at work how much time they overwork you. I am a current employees of cgb and currently looking for a new job because this company does not care about anything but the bottom dollar. I would highly suggest thinking of a different career and if you have to work in the grain industry I would check out Louis-Dreyfus or Nidra. The management is horrible and the office Personnel are horrible. There's too many cooks in the kitchen and nothing can ever get done on time or properly. I like many other employees that I work with are very unhappy with this company and are currently looking for new jobs I hear the turnover rate with our company is buying from the little time that I've worked here I can attest to that.
Pros
The benefits.
Cons
Underpaid, last minute notice on a Friday, to work on sat. They do not care about personal time or anything outside of cgb

Corporate Office terrible
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Covington, LAAugust 18, 2016
Definitely think twice before working for this company. Very high employee turnover.

Great Compensation. Great location.

This company will over work you(no job work/life balance). There is no such thing as 8-5 job. They do not do background checks on their employees which results in poor values of workers. Very high turnover of employees at the corporate office.

Can you say Nepotism?
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) –  Mandeville, LAFebruary 10, 2016
Hire those related, those who you know, and their close friend; all regardless of their skills or abilities! This sums up CGB. A company which continues to bring in one new person who brings in their cluster of family, friends and former colleagues to run their little facility or department. Of course, no consideration is given to those who have the exact same skills, abilities and passion as the ones being handed the same positions.

And, forget same pay for same job. They give higher pay to males in the same position as females. Provide severance to some terminated employees, but not others. Pay some employees who are permanently disabled, but never all............it depends on who you are related to or who your "buddy" is. NEPOTISM at its finest.

They take pride in their slogan...we are "a bunch of old white guys at the table and need some old white girls", as if that makes it less prejudice.
