    I worked at Savage Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No pros what so ever, do not waist your time

    Cons

    Do not ever work for this company, they suck you in with all their wonderful benefits and weekly pay but they just fill spots for a week or two at a time and then let you go. Complete waist of time, they have very poor communication skills, the management is a mess, lazy and do not train you or let you know really what to do, you're on your own!!! Only if you want a week or two check would I recommend this, it was a complete waist of time. The owner is lazy and will smile in your face and stab you in the back. I was supposed to be hired to do one thing and when they got me in I was suckered into doing brunt work!! Take this as a warning!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get some professional people who are willing to work and train hard working everyday people who are willing to work for you. Communication is the key not sitting around expecting new employees to know how you're business runs. Also be honest, don't sucker people in then not have them work in the position you hired them to. Worst "job" ever, no career whatsoever.

    Pros

    Very big for a private industrial services company.

    Cons

    The management team will most likely turn their cheek the other way so they will not be aware of the violation.

    I have been working at Savage Companies full-time

    Pros

    Great Co- Workers, Good benefits. Little Supervision.Good Paid time off. Decent Pay. Have new equipment but not great on maintenance. Freedom and not to much pressure. Pretty relaxed.

    Cons

    Management is a bit lacking. Not great Insurance but could be worse. Hours are a bit much for the pay. Works out to about 14.80 an hr. Really not a bad J.O.B.

    Advice to Management

    No point. They won't take advise from anyone under Site Leaders in my experience. Not the strongest in ethical and moral standards at my site. I just go to work and do my J.O.B and try to avoid the drama even though they to need to listen to their best workers, the ones who perform the J.O.B as asked and get it done instead of having clicks and loosing good employees.

    Pros

    if you put in the time and are willing to follow the procedures you can go far with this company. they have an excellent safety program, what I like about savage is if you have a Better way to do a procedure or process, there is a program to implement them, not just do it there way.

    Cons

    can be at times a lot of time away from home, but they work really hard to minimize that, and creative ways to help you spend time with your family.
