Solid company to work for
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Inver Grove Heights, MNDecember 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.

Good comapany, but not needs realignment
Certified Energy Specialist (Former Employee) –  Moses Lake, WA Walla Walla WaNovember 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.
Pros
It’s a job
Cons
Not a career

Sneaky, secretive, back stabbing Management
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Winona, MNOctober 18, 2018
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.
Pros
Union, health Benefits, breaks
Cons

Good company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Creston, IAJanuary 3, 2019
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.

Grain Merchandising Intern (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 19, 2018
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

not very enjoyable
Accounts Representative (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNNovember 8, 2018
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.

Official response from CHS Inc.
November 5, 2018

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, MNSeptember 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.

Poor management
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDOctober 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.
Pros
Paid lunches for night shifts
Cons
Production over safety or quality

Employees are not important to senior management. I was let go after 24 years of success in many roles in the company to make room for VP's friends
Account Manager/Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  MontanaAugust 27, 2018
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.

Great place, great culture, had no problems
Accounting Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNAugust 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.
Pros
Everything about company was great
Cons
