Listen to a heartfelt Veteran's Day message from our CEO, Jay Debertin,

Each year, our drivers log more than 35 million miles delivering products to our customers safely, efficiently and on time.

The latest safety technology and newest equipment doesn’t mean much without qualified, well-trained drivers behind the wheel — drivers like you who do the right things for the right reasons, who like the feeling of helping your neighbor, whether that neighbor is just down the road or across the county.

Hauling fuel products
Our drivers are focused on delivering refined fuels, lubricants, propane, anhydrous ammonia and other products in a safe and timely manner. Drivers must be 21 years or older, pass all DOT requirements, have a clean driving record and Class A CDL. Hazmat, tanker endorsements and a minimum of two years or 200,000 miles of verifiable experience as a tractor trailer driver preferred.

Helping grow healthy crops
Custom applicators drive large equipment to apply fertilizer and crop protection products to farm fields. Off-season responsibilities may include driving trucks and other equipment, and performing warehouse work.

Not a driver, but love working around big rigs?
We’ve got many local opportunities that will put you behind the controls of the latest in agricultural equipment or behind the tools keeping it running.

CHS Transportation, which has one of the nation’s largest private truck fleets, has launched a new website highlighting its industry-leading logistics solutions available to current and prospective customers. Specializing in the transportation of bulk liquid, petroleum and liquefied gas petroleum, CHS Transportation prides itself on being safe, efficient and reliable. Check out the new site, including opportunities to grow your career in a specialized and rewarding field.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CHS Inc.


    I found the interview process to be very enjoyable. While the in-person interview process is a bit long (about 3 hours), it went very fast. I started the day by taking assessment tests, personality wise and logic. From there I met with an HR representative and then finally two people from the marketing and communication department. The two from the communications department ended up being my supervisors for the summer. While it is a long process, it is definitely worth it.
