Savage has great job security with fixed-fee long-term contracts in very diversified industries. You have all the benefits and perks of working for a large corporation but still the culture and feel of a smaller family oriented company. Best part about the job - the people you work with.
Very safety oriented, great benefits, good management styles
A few isolated layoffs in some parts of the country over the last 3 years due to the oil market

inconstancy poor management do not work when it rains no weekends off . no raises at all no matter how long you have been there . Work schedule goes up the daily . They take your delay pay if you dont get 10 hrs a day . You might get lucky and bring home 1200 every two weeks Goodluck

Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Garyville, LA – August 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.
The old Vice President knew how to do his job.
With new leadership the company is not what the owners intended it to be.

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.
I was employed with savage for almost 11 years .. they were very good to me and i would recommend working for them ...a great safety program..i hope to have the opportunity to work with savage again....
Good place to work if you enjoy blanked accusations and backstabbing , everyone steps on eachothers toes , constantly having to clean up after others , maintiance crews are lazy so ther slack has to be picked up basically doing operations job and maintenance job , the management department could use some house cleaning unprofessional in some areas .
Great job if you like being mentally and physically beat down!
Transload Operator (Current Employee) – Delaware City, DE – June 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!
its a paycheck
over worked and under paid, healthcare sucks, worst management ever
