Switchboard Operator (Former Employee) –  Whiting, INSeptember 15, 2017
If you want to work in an environment where if feels like a group of gossiping high school girls this is the place to work for. Your crew members make one mistake it is on you too, even if you are not involved it is your fault. Management is weak they don't have your back whatsoever, and only care about $$.
Pros
It's a paycheck
Cons
Unfair work place

Change in leadership
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Garyville, LAAugust 16, 2017
Savage reorganized the coke cutting facilities which meant we had a new Vice President.who is not knowledgeable of any aspect of operating a coke handling facility which caused the company to go in a different direction to what the owners originally intended.
Pros
The old Vice President knew how to do his job.
Cons
With new leadership the company is not what the owners intended it to be.

Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTAugust 9, 2017
Run. You don't want to work for a company that will never advance you. You will always worry about job security. They love to lie. Watch out for Savage!

Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTAugust 8, 2017
The company has undergone a lot of change in culture. If you're not part of their desired demographic you'll have a hard time being taken seriously and advancing. They preach what is right and in balance for the company/customer/employee but they are only worried about the company and customer.

"Hire right is a joke"
Switch man, transloader, CDL driver. (Former Employee) –  Green River, WYJuly 17, 2017
Advancement in the company promise is a joke. A management position came open at the "Green River, WY operation.
Instead of hiring people already with savage for years; with a ton of experience- they hired a known felon that has to register anywhere he lives (if you know what I mean).
When people left the company; this new assistant manager would stock people on social media and send insulting derogatory messages to them. Six months later!
Savage is no longer the company I started with. Count me out!
P.S. I already left.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
No advancement

The avage company itself is a very good company. As far as individual buissness units, they get off of the sdavage culture and do not take care of their people.

Great job if you like being mentally and physically beat down!
Transload Operator (Current Employee) –  Delaware City, DEJune 13, 2017
I would not recommend anyone work there. They lore you in with grand visions and promises only to trap you with no advancement unless you relocate. Theres also was the worst favoritism i have ever seen there! They only promote ones they like even if they're not experienced so you end up being led by people that don't have a clue. I could go on for days but do yourself a favor and keep scrolling!
Pros
its a paycheck
Cons
over worked and under paid, healthcare sucks, worst management ever

The overall balance of work is fair and compensation is fair. I enjoyed my years with Savage and only look to leave to find more responsibility. Lunches are paid and benefits are fair.

Terrible place to work
Coal handler (Former Employee) –  Waterflow, NMMay 19, 2017
Waterflow location in New Mexico is a joke. Management is a joke. Pay is decent hourly but your days are always rotating so you rarely get a full paycheck. They screw you on your hours any way they can. Worst company I have worked for. Co workers are very drama filled. Everyone is always trying to get someone else in trouble. Very poor management. I do not recommend working for this company.
Pros
4 days off
Cons
Everything else
