Operator
Operator (Former Employee), Elko, NevadaJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Nothing good to say
Cons: no breaks, even if you are tired and manager can see it but still want you to work and never give you credit.
Management on site is cruel to employees. Always treat us like we are dumb and always talk down to people. Management likes to spread rumors about employees and make fun of them. I've never worked in a company that treat people with no respects. I've seen other Management treat other employees with regards and this one always buy old stuff to reward employees. Holds employees back so they don't succeeds. Sometimes we have a meeting with no lunches. Hopefully management can sit back and understand the situation about employees and make changes. If you do work just be careful because some day you can get pin to the wall

Mechanic (Former Employee), MartinezApril 29, 2015
Pros: when us workers handled are duties
Cons: short breaks, management
No loyalty to employee's. Management is very low in professionalism. Don't treat there employee's with respect. The first manager they fired, the new one is more dishonest. Savage needs to evaluate there managers by communicating with there workers. Employee's are very shocked how people have been treated.

Driver (Current Employee), American Fork, UtahDecember 17, 2014
Pros: new equipment
Cons: pay, actual having loads back to the refinery.
I have worked here now for a year since this company started hauling crude oil in the Uintah Basin in Utah. Brand new equipment all around. They pay for extensive training and are extremely safety first type of company. They have a contract with Chevron who doesn't always provide enough loads for all the drivers that they currently have. Trucks never stop. 24 - 7 operation. Might miss a shift because – more... a truck has to be serviced or they may have a spare to use. Management will tell you straight up that if your not happy to go somewhere else. Savage also obtained another operation through Holly refineries. It's still in the Salt Lake area. That operation actually pays more. Better trucks with more power and a sleeper cab. Wierd that we are apparently the same company doing the same job but pay and things are so different. Also we are supposed to get a desent wage to go back to the Salt Lake refinery. But most days now we travel to Price, utah to unload at a railroad yard. Delays Delays Delays there and you get paid less money to drive a more dangerous route. They will hire you though with no crude oil hauling experience. They will train you no matter what for a minimum of 3 weeks. So if you want the experience of a good career then this is the place. – less

Locomotive Engineer/ Rail Switch Operator (Former Employee), Luling, LAAugust 1, 2013
Pros: great experience you learn how to operate a locomotive
Cons: management sucks, no on site training for new employess to become familiar with jobsite
Savage Companies overall is a good company to work for, but there Luling, La operation has a high employee turnover rate.... Employee's usually stay a few months to gain experience and move on .The management there is not the best, there is no communication between management, if you give them notice in advance they will tell you they forgot... Also there is no training program on site to familiarize you with the jobsite once employed. Most co-workers won't explain to you the job task for the day..... And will report you to the supervisors.... The pay is decent. But if you have experience you would move on to obtain a better opportunity...
