Fantastic Company to work for
Office Manager/Safety Leader (Former Employee), Tillamook, OROctober 16, 2015
Working for CHS Inc under the Energy Division was a great experience. The company is a large Fortune 100 company but feels more like a family. Safety is the number one priority, and you feel from Corp. that they truly care about you. They offer training and advancement opportunities.

Fun, but stressful job
Sr. Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Creston, IASeptember 21, 2015
Pros: Great pay and benifits
Cons: Very long hours, and sometimes many days from home
CHS is a wonderful company to work for, especially as a Repair Tech. Heavy work load, but wonderful teamwork. A company that is truly all about the employee. Although I had to leave because I continued to contract lung infections while working in the high dust environment, CHS stood behind me in every way, including the transition back to full time self employment.

fun work place
Quality Assurance Monitor (Current Employee), Hutchinson, KSSeptember 17, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.

People are Numbers
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Inver Grove Heights, MNOctober 16, 2014
This company, in my opinion, is too big. There are so many people with constant growth and people have become robots.

Very physically demanding job
forklift operator and Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Hutchinsons, KSSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: mentally and physically challenging
Cons: keeping new employees at the job for more then a week.
I enjoyed this job due to the physical requirements. In the warehouse a typical day started with wrapping finished pallets from the day before, setting up all orders to be loaded on trucks. After we started putting products onto pallets. 50lb bags were transferred from a large pallet to a smaller one. Usually 3 bags per tier and 11-12 stacks high. Management was always around making sure safety guidelines were followed. We usually worked in 5 man teams, 4 people doing the lifting and one driving the forklift. The hardest part of the job was keeping trainees motivated enough to want to do the work. We went through so many people it was hard to keep them trained and vigilant. I enjoyed the mental challenge, and I never stopped learning. It kept my attention from the first day until my last.

Independent assignment to create a dynamic Excel spreadsheet for domestic property tax accruals
ACCOUNTANT (Former Employee), Inver Grove Heights, MNAugust 7, 2014
Pros: expanding tax knowledge with property tax exposure and improving excel skills.
Cons: length of time spent researching excel features to accomplish calculation goals.
I arrived each morning before 8 am to prepare for the day. At the beginning of the assignment, I conferred with the tax department on what the information described and the calculations produced on each of the 76 property tax forms. Then, with the appropriate understanding and knowledge gained, I created a complex and dynamic excel spreadsheet for each location that would calculate a monthly property tax accrual to enter in the company's accounting system. Therefore, if you wanted to determine the property tax accrual as of July, you just select the month of July in the calendar drop-down list and the spreadsheet would display the automatic calculations for each location according to that month. I really appreciated the help I received from the employees in the Tax Department and feel the hardest part of the job was learning the Excel features needed to make the data calculate according the tax forms and produce each monthly property tax accrual correctly. Thus, the most enjoyable aspect of the assignment was being able to learn, improve, and use my Excel skills to create a complex yet dynamic spreadsheet to be easily used when simply selecting any month from a drop-down menu.

One of MN's most succesful companies!
LOGISTICS MANAGER (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: excellent company, benefits package, challenging career
Cons: work life balance
CHS is an amazing Fortune 100 company! I managed the loaded truck logistics, tracking and tracing movement of Crop Nutrient products across the United States. Very challenging position that required a "can do will do" attitude. The management team was very supportive and I was granted a lot of freedom to implement cost effective programs.

Bad communication
IT (Former Employee), Inver Grove Heights, MNJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: good benifits
Cons: long hours, everyone is stressed out and putting more effort into watching their back then anything else.
Communication between and within departments is very bad. Pay differs a lot between departments. Management does not advertise other jobs within CHS. Watch your back, anything goes wrong and they need to pick someone to blame.

Good Place To Work Overall
Plant Manager (Current Employee), MnNovember 10, 2013
In general people are good to work with. The company has a range of education levels and personnel from diversified back grounds. The company does have some work to do in the area of re-location and the rate or amount their internal employees circulate between internal divisions.
