Very high stress due to unstable work environment. Extremely political and cut-throat.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Inver Grove Heights, MN12 October 2017
I had a fantastic manager; however, there were a few managers within the Senior Leadership team whom were placed in positions of power and authority to make decisions that unfortunately has had a negative impact on the company.

The morale is lower than it has ever been, and there does not seem to be any ethics or values due to the significant changes. It feels like the company has lost sight of where they came from.
Pros
Opportunities to work from home
Cons
Poor management

Slow Moving
Refined Fuels Account Manager - South Region (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MN9 October 2017
CHS is an excellent company, but processes are slow, management moves slow, everything is just slow. There is no sense of urgency on any issues and to get anything done you have to go through 3 different departments at a minimum for approval.

It is a fun company to work for
IT (Current Employee) –  Inver Grove Heights, MN30 August 2017
The Company is a great place to work for, the problem is that in the IT department there is very little room from advancement, zero cross-training and most upper level jobs are hired from outside of the company.
Pros
CHS Field discounts
Cons
no internal advancement or cross-training

Process Technician (Current Employee) –  Rochelle, IL6 August 2017
Been at Rochelle,il for a month. I like it. It's a lot to learn at first but gets easier as the days go by. It's a 7 on 7 off shift once you get placed on a team. Really good company. Does a lot for surrounding communities. They do a lot of volunteer work. They really seem to appreciate the employees there. Management seem to work hard there. Hardest part of the job is just learning everything. Safety is a huge part of the company way of life there.
Pros
Shift, benefits, work culture.
Cons
Pay a little low for the work you do. but not terrible.

Process Operator (Current Employee) –  Annawan, IL1 July 2017
This is a good job that keeps you thinking and learning every day. They pay based on what you know and what you can do which is nice. We changed our shift to have every other weekend off which helped with the family time and work balance. Management is willing to listen and make some changes but with shift work not everyone can be pleased. The workplace is team based and most get along well. The hardest part of the job is there is a lot to learn but they have a good training program but it could be longer. Time off coverage is more of a trade with the amount of people so you get a lot of overtime. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and things always change, you don't do the same thing over and over working both indoors and outdoors.
Pros
People, benefits and never boring
Cons
Shift work can be challenging but days off mid week are nice
