Great place for long term employees
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  AnonymousOctober 17, 2017
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.
Pros
Very safety oriented, great benefits, good management styles
Cons
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

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.

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

Operator/ Switchman (Current Employee) –  Blaine, WAMay 26, 2017
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.
