  • What It’s Like to Work at CHS

    Here’s what some of our veterans and active duty service members have to say about working at CHS: 

    “The discipline, dedicated work ethic and leadership skills I developed while in the Marine Corps has given me the ability to handle a multitude of situations. As most military members know, learning to adapt to and overcome all challenges is key in accomplishing tasks. In the military you learn that it takes a team, not just an individual, to handle a situation. That’s true in the workplace as well. When I joined CHS I found an organization where people are committed to the task at hand. It’s an organization with a long-term focus, and one that gives me opportunities to grow personally and professionally.”

    “CHS offered me the opportunity to serve a purpose greater than myself, which was what I was looking for after years of serving my country. I found a lot of similarities between CHS and the military, including the desire to serve a greater purpose, and to work toward a common objective with people who share a strong work ethic. Working for our farmer-owners provides me the same satisfaction as serving in the military. I get to use my military experiences to drive execution through planning, risk management, budgeting and leadership. The military protects our freedom. CHS helps feed a hungry world. That’s not just a job, it’s a mission.”
