Savage Employment
Sr. Systems Administrator (Current Employee) –  Midvale, UTMarch 18, 2019
Working at Savage is like being in 3rd grade.

1. Told what to wear (no coats with hoodie, button down shirts (no plaid), etc)
2. Micro managing - taking role in the morning
3. No give and take (if up till 4am working, expected to be in office at normal time 8am - absolutely no flexibility)

Senior Management has zero IT knowledge.
Pros
None

Mediocre
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Midvale, UTFebruary 6, 2019
Mediocre place to work, no real perks or incentives. Good people to work with. Compensation is in the middle of the pack. Schedules are not flexible and paid time off is scarce.

Great company, bad department
Driver (Current Employee) –  Pittsburg, CAJanuary 29, 2019
Savage is a great company to start at if you have you Class A CDL. You don't have much time for your personal life so if you're young with a family, be ready to sacrifice some time apart. Its a good job but not a great career choice.
Pros
60+ hours every week, company provides uniforms, boots and safety gear reimbursed, always work available, new equipment
Cons
Only one shift (graveyard) micro managed, don't get paid enough for amount of work, only 2 pay raises

Low pay, Management is a bad joke. Double standards and Hypocrites
Transload Operator (Former Employee) –  Woodhaven, MIJanuary 25, 2019
I had the displeasure of being spoon fed the Savage Legacy and Mission statement. I was a transload Operator, working around combustible and flammable material everyday for the bleak wage of 15$ an hour. That was once the operation was started) bounced around learning things completely unrelated to what I was hired for and have experience with . Went above beyond for this company. Was totally taken advantage of.Management was an affirmative action case. Had no experience in the field whatsoever. Preaches safety but doesn't follow. When brought up they don't follow their own procedures, you get slapped with insubordination and fired. Expected more from these people. Do Not Work for This Company. They are Liers.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Management, wage, hours. Culture.

Long hours with no benifit for advancement
Worker (Former Employee) –  Green River, WYJanuary 5, 2019
This company is very hard to work for. The turn over rate with hourly employees and management is horrible. This company is family run and very religious. Be aware when applying. Management does not know how to the job but try's to tell you how to do your job.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Very Poor management

Mixed Feelings about working here
Office assistant (Current Employee) –  Midvale, UtahDecember 8, 2018
Coal industry is failing and the CEO makes you think every day that you are loosing your job. Does anonymous surveys to make the company better but then calls you out on what was supposed to be anonymous. Love the Brothers that started the company but its not the same.
Pros
Cafe on site, friendly coworkers, hours, beautiful building
Cons
pay, advancement, no notice when job changes, Management treated differently then employess that do the work.

Overworked and Underpaid
Core Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  UTDecember 6, 2018
First the amount of work you do for the pay is unreal. Second, management is just a group of overpaid baby sitters that offer the overworked staff no help. You will be called into pointless meeting after meeting. Jordan is one of the newer clueless managers/babysitters, watch out for him. Overall if you want a stressful underpaid job join Savage/core services.
Pros
You do get a pay check
Cons
Poor worklife balance, salary, poor management, technology is very out of date

Great job overall
CDL DRIVER (Former Employee) –  La Marque, TXNovember 8, 2018
Savage is a great employment opportunity for someone with little to no experience driving a hazmat tanker. I consider it an entry level job in the aforementioned category. If you are content with being only a driver, then you could be there as long as you please. If you have aspirations of advancement, Savage doesn't offer much in that area, as the LaMarque operation is fairly small.

Hazmat Driver
Hazmat Driver (Former Employee) –  La Marque, TXNovember 8, 2018
Transport Sulfur from Refinary to offloading facility at various locations in the Houston area.
The job pays you by the load, and you typically make around $200 to $280 a day. This is a slip seating position and the trucks are abused and dirty. Stay far away from this job unless you need the experience. Dealing with Sulfur sucks and it stinks, get on your uniform and skin...you smell like stinky Sulfur when you go home.
12 hour shifts x 6 days a week working either night shift starting at 5 PM to 5am or day shift.
Pros
Free uniforms
Cons
Slip seating, hours worked and Sulfur

Pros
Good safe environment

Worst customer in the world
