Overview

CHS drivers spend their days making life easier for their customers – farmers, ranchers, local feed & seed stores, community gas stations and refineries. You’ll know most of the people on your route and you’ll be home most nights for supper.

More than any other role at CHS, you’re the connector. Moving products from sellers to buyers. Transporting supplies from production facilities to customers. Keeping rural America in business from before spring planting starts to well after fall harvest ends.

CHS is one of the biggest names in agronomy, energy and grain processing. Join our driving team and see where your career takes you.

Culture

Safety & service

As part of the CHS driver team, safety and customer service matter more than anything:

  • Safety — You’ll be hauling a variety of materials, some of which are hazardous. That’s why you’re required to have certain licensures and why we provide a new or late-model truck with top of the line safety equipment. This is a job where safety always comes first.
  • Service — Once you arrive safely, then it’s all about the customer. You’ll get to know them and become familiar with the unique rhythm of their business. And when it’s harvest time, you’ll go above and beyond because that’s the spirit of a rural community.

Quote

I’m carrying hazardous material, so I’m constantly thinking about safety. On average, I only drive 120 to 175 miles a day. I make a lot of short trips back and forth through rural areas, so I’m always on the lookout for farm equipment and school buses and keep a safe distance from them on the road.

— Mark Siefers Driver and recipient of the CHS Transportation Million-Mile Safe Driving Award

Fun fact: Mark has driven over 2 million miles without a safety incident — the equivalent of driving around the world 80 times.
