Sr. Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Midvale, UT – March 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)
Site leader (Former Employee) – Irondale, AL – February 7, 2019
Fueling Trains. always stay in the clear of danger . Every day was planned out. Keeping the railways happy and ahead of schedule. Leaving. Having a great sense of pride knowing you all did your parts in keeping the Train on time.
Operator/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Anacortes, WA – January 30, 2019
Supervised 6 man crew with duties included train operation, operating track switches, draining crude oil off oil trains, railcar and track inspection. Created reports, calculated offloading totals and production times, and inspections forms for each train. Our site and crew had a record setting best for non-spillage of crude oil and low to zero injuries.
Driver (Current Employee) – Pittsburg, CA – January 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.
60+ hours every week, company provides uniforms, boots and safety gear reimbursed, always work available, new equipment
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, MI – January 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.
Worker (Former Employee) – Green River, WY – January 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.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – January 2, 2019
Good company horrible manager absolute filthy job and when I say filthy I mean walk into the shop and your covered in Ash you CAN NOT keep tools clean manger will not let too trucks come into the shop so you can replace/get new tools for your job
Watched all hours of the shift horrible manager doesn't trust anyone and disrespects everyone
Locomotive Fuel Technician / Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Pembroke, KY – December 8, 2018
Great company to work for, They truly care about their people and always treat them fair. They continue to grow and diversify, Someone who is willing to work hard, will have all opportunities to excel.
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.
Cafe on site, friendly coworkers, hours, beautiful building
pay, advancement, no notice when job changes, Management treated differently then employess that do the work.
Core Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – UT – December 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.
You do get a pay check
Poor worklife balance, salary, poor management, technology is very out of date
Operator (Former Employee) – Port Arthur, TX – November 9, 2018
Provided me and my family with 3 years of financial security. the opportunity I experienced was awesome. a lot of knowledge and talent was there for me to learn and grow. they provided me with everything I needed to succeed. honestly was the best job and experience that I have had to date.
CDL DRIVER (Former Employee) – La Marque, TX – November 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 (Former Employee) – La Marque, TX – November 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.
