Overall good company to work for. People who are not willing to learn and change will not do well in this organization.

From Minnesota — 01/18/2010

Great company to work for. They respect you and give you ample opportunities for promotions. The only problem is your pay is always one promotion behind, and the expectation is that you will work significantly more time than your typical 40 hour week. If a good work environment and stable career are more important to you than good pay and fewer hours, then this is a good company for you!

From Illinois — 05/06/2009

Cargill is a good company to work for unless you work at a Grain Elevator. The personnel that work there are on the low end of the intelligence spectrum. They have very little respect for themselves or others. The management's primary concern is turning around trains (loading grain cars). The weekend work is constant, there is NO predictibility in your life. The holidays they give you, are rarely adhered to (except christmas and thanksgiving). The pay is good, but your life is more important. If you work in a grain elevator that loads trains, you will not have a life.

From Memphis, TN — 12/07/2008

Overall the compensation is very good, but you work so hard for your money. You work 12hour swing shifts, meaning that every two weeks your schedule is changing from 7am - 7pm to 7pm - 7am. You're on call on your off days, so its very hard to plan an outing with friends and family because you never know when you will get called in. The work load most of the time is enough for 2 or 3 people and management will come in wondering why something wasnt completed. These same people at one point were doing this same job, but they act so oblivious to whats going on. You barely can take a break or go use the restroom. The phone is constantly ringing, plus we act as after hour customer service reps; with all the high volume phone calls you can easily get behind on your work. Management do promote job development and promotions, but its very hard to get in the extra training you need to be a good candidaite for an upper position.

From Minnetonka — 06/05/2008

I've worked for this company 3 years and then i left. It was a big mistake from my side, leaving this company. I';ve had a lot of satisfaction there and i'll always get back to Cargill. Colleagues are very friendly, helping, if they know the answer. carrer grow is based on annual review of performance. So, if you have this opportunity, go for it.
