CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – December 19, 2018
The company has a lot of long term employees throughout all of their locations. They have a great retirement package also for their workers. I only left due to wanting a change in my supervisor and not wanting to take a major pay cut to go into a different position within the organization. My original intentions were to retire from the company unfortunately things change.
Certified Energy Specialist (Former Employee) – Moses Lake, WA Walla Walla Wa – November 4, 2018
Good company, see it through the the good and bad times. The sell off of assets in recent months is concerning. After relocating to fill a upcoming management position that was later removed from budget after moving my family, it all went down hill from there. In the west, CHS doesn’t have good supply of energy products, always behind.
Slow paced environment, laid back. the employees are OK to get along and work with. Management is the #1 issue. they're very secretive, they don't follow company policies nor follow safety guidelines unless its convenient for them, they're selfish and are only in it for themselves. they took away safety bonuses, Christmas dinners, etc, no compensations or thank yous. Management is Anti-Union, and if you're Pro-Union ( they probably wont hire you on from temp agency's). Biggest 2 faced management I've ever worked for. so much tension/stress between management and employees. Favoritism is a big factor as well.

Safety was the number one priority and was a good company to work for until they closed the plant. Company did a good job with supplying previous workers with the means to find another job thru a subscription with right management. They also paid severance and six months later we were still included in the companies profit sharing.
Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Toppenish, WA – February 11, 2019
Best job I’ve ever had complimented by an awesome boss and team; lots of room for career advancement; company is vested in its community; profit sharing is excellent and the safety incentives are totally cool. Fortune 100 companies are the best!!!
Crude Oil Driver (Former Employee) – Great Bend, KS – December 24, 2018
Very unprofessional management, junk equipment made doing job safely very hard. Many unsafe not road worthy equipment. Morally and ethically corrupt, they will make up lies in there favor. Needs to be investigated from an outside source for unfair business practices.
Logistics Analyst (Current Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – November 8, 2018
This is the company where every individual need to work because it has a great work atmosphere and people are good around. I have worked in a few companies where I know how team members will be so effective in one's success. you get all the support from manager and colleagues. all together happy and peaceful.
Infrastructure Lead and Coordinator (Former Employee) – Brentwood, TN – December 17, 2018
I was a contracted for work with CHS. They were a good fast paced company to work for providing excellent healthcare for patients. I worked with very educated individuals with great teams to work with across the USA.
A very large company with a close culture. With such an important impact on the world CHS has, it meant your work was meaningful. There is the corporate culture where some people just want to do there job and go home but many of the managers were passionate about their job, in my experience
if you like to be micro managed and constantly reviewed for a dull job then this is the place to be. they constantly have turn over and lose their best people because they do not care about anything but numbers and the best way to make the most money off paying as little as possible.
Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience but CHS Inc. is an agribusiness and energy company. We are not a healthcare organization and you are likely posting a review for another company with the acronym CHS.

Credit and A/R Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – September 1, 2018
There are many employees who have been there for very a long time, many of them in management positions. They resist change. You cannot challenge status quo. You have to be very careful about not fitting the "We have always done it this way" mentality.
They restructure some departments for organizational alignment and posted all jobs externally right away. Not a very trasnparent organization.
Warehouse Lead (Former Employee) – Lynden, WA – September 17, 2018
The second day working, I was approached by a department head, asked to help get someone fired, when I refused, the person set out to recruit other employees to undermine my department, integrity, and reputation. After she was told the situation, the general manager refused to get involved, then blamed me.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fargo, ND – October 2, 2018
Very poor management, the plant manager would rather throw people under the bus instead of taking blame for anything in the plant, he treats the employees as second class citizens unless you are his family, then you rent even have to show up on time.
Employees are not important to CHS senior management. I was let go after 24 years of successful employment in many roles in the company only to make room for division VP's friends which he brough over from another company.
Accounting Specialist II (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – August 30, 2018
My experience was that you had your few managers who were not nice, but I didn't hear a lot of bad ones, only 1. My supervisor was the best ever, she bought us gifts, she did a lot of us as her employees, just out of kindness.
The culture was very professional, no drama scene like others.
