Finding a Career, Not Just a Job, with Savage

April 2022

As a professional CDL truck driver in today’s work environment, you have a lot of options when considering employment. Wages and benefits are important, but you’re probably looking for more than just a paycheck. If you’re looking for a socially-responsible company where you can really make a difference, get home safely each day, and build work/life harmony, Savage offers these opportunities and more.

Savage’s drivers play a critical role in the global economy. When you drive with Savage, you’re making an impact by keeping essential supply chains running smoothly. You’ll quickly recognize you’re part of something larger — making a difference in communities across America and around the world. Savage drivers move and manage materials that matter, enabling Customers and Partners to Feed the World, Power Our Lives, and Sustain the Planet.

Savage is a global provider of industry infrastructure and supply chain services, with more than 4,000 Team Members in over 200 locations. Its drivers enjoy rewarding careers with a growing company that has been in business for over 75 years, with leaders who understand drivers are key to the company’s longevity and success in providing agriculture, infrastructure, and environmental services.

“It’s important that our people have a sense of the bigger picture and understand the value of the work they’re performing every day,” said Adam Thompson, Savage VP and Unit Leader, Western Production Services. “When we all work together to meet our Customers’ needs and do things the right way, we become an indispensable partner because they know they can always depend on us. Our drivers become an extension of our Customers’ teams, helping provide needed products and benefitting communities and people’s daily lives.”

Savage and its affiliates, Bartlett and EnviroServe, have operations in more than 40 states, so the company is hiring drivers across the country. Nearly all Savage routes are local, so drivers are able to be home every day or night between shifts. This allows greater flexibility for spending time with family and friends, and living a more balanced life. It also makes driving with Savage a great choice for all genders.

“We continue to see more women taking an interest in truck driving, and with our local routes and focus on safety, Savage is a great career choice,” said Laurel Timmins, Savage VP, Benefits and Talent Acquisition. “Our inclusive culture helps all genders feel safe and valued. When you work with Savage, you won’t be over the road, spending nights at a truck stop. You can be home every day. We offer training opportunities for our Team Members who are looking to advance their careers into leadership roles. Because we have operations nationwide, we also offer the chance to relocate if you’re looking for a new environment.”

Savage is committed to DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) principles and its leaders value having Team Members with diverse voices and experiences. Through regular team meetings, “Better Way” listening sessions, annual engagement surveys, and other communications, Savage encourages Team Members to provide feedback and the company works to accommodate individual needs wherever possible. 

Savage is proud to support the Uniformed Services. This is the fourth consecutive year that Savage was designated a Military Friendly® Employer, with Silver level recognition for 2022, for its commitment to recruiting, retaining, and advancing veterans.

Savage hires both Class A and Class B CDL drivers, depending on the operation, and in some areas will sponsor drivers working to obtain their Hazmat endorsement. The company provides clean, safe, newer-model, and well-maintained equipment; competitive compensation, profit sharing, and a 401(k) match for eligible Team Members. Savage also celebrates safety achievements, including special recognition and rewards for drivers who reach one million miles of safe driving with Savage.
