J3 Herds person (Former Employee) – Neb4aska – May 19, 2018
Poor working employees cause good employees to leave. Not a stable environment, cry loud enough may get your way. Id keep looking. Good workers try and get nothing, poor workers stir the pot and get rewarded.
J2 position/herdsperson (Former Employee) – Kansas, IL – March 18, 2018
I loved my job here and would never have left. But some of the barn managers are only there for a paycheck..they pick and choose favorite team members and if you disagree with an opinion of theirs they do not like it.
Working wth animals and learning new things about pigcare
Animal Caretaker (Current Employee) – Kansas, IL – January 5, 2018
Management get taken advantage of and have little power to change things. They are salary and work tones of hrs. The pay for management is not good. The only thing they have going for them is weekends off when they actually get them and holidays off. Some managers are running 2 farms and get little compensation. As a farm worker the job is great but don't move up
schedules, the days off some during the week, caring managers
low pay for management and they get taken advantage of.
Every day is similar for work, but not every day has the same amount of work I learned alot about animals and all the care to keep them healthy and productive Management was really good and supportive Workplace is very busy, but clean and enjoyable The hardest part is keeping up on busy days and making sure everything is top notch The most enjoyable part is defiently seeing the numbers and how everything comes to place when things are done right
Human Resources Representative (Former Employee) – Sleepy Eye, MN – November 13, 2017
I worked a temporary position through Christensen Farms in the Human Resource Department while in college and loved it! I was supported by a great team/management and felt they were flexible with my schedule. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and I couldn't have asked for a better experience there.
At first it was very interesting but as I worked I wanted to learn other steps in other areas. I was always overlooked. It seemed like you had to compete for knowledge. I was never taught the things I requested to learn.
Nice pay for this area.
Work load unevenly distributed. Very poor managment.
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.
