    Former Employee - Water Transportation in Vernal, UT

    I worked at Savage Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best trainer's. Strong people skills from most employees working in the Vernal areas. Still have a lot of great friends. Money is alright but I left for better with greater benefits and a matching retirement. Closer to my house.

    Cons

    Long distance from home. Traveling an hour to work. Pay could be more for the labor. Left because of medical bills within my family. Wasn't able to purchase a new vehicle. During 3 years I put 70,000 miles on my car and 30,000 on my truck. Doesn't pay out for medical leave. Have to use savings and plan ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a good job. It's alright to say "I don't know" it always felt like management protects the company at the employees expense. Hire right, train right, treat right. Good employees are worth standing behind. New company I work for payed me for a month off for cracked ribs (insurance). Savage could be just as great. Really enjoyed working there.
