    I have been working at CHS Inc full-time


    Love this job. I'm out of the office more often then not helping growers answering questions on there agronomic needs and getting back in touch with the growers and producers. Its a sales job but I don't feel like its a sales job. The best part when its not slow and I need time off for my family there isn't any blow-back from management or my bosses they understand. I know this isn't everywhere but its a nice to feel like I can have a life outside of work.


    The draw back is when things get busy they get really busy in the spring its a 7 day a week job and there isnt enough hours in the day, when its slow its extremely slow.

    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.
