How do I submit my resume?

Create or log on to your profile. Within the job application, click the Resume link and follow the instructions for uploading your resume.

Note: You must submit your application on-line for a specific job to be considered for that job. US mailed, faxed, or emailed resumes are not adequate for application purposes.

I see more than one position that im intersted in, do i need to apply multiple times?

A separate application must be submitted for each job for which you wish to apply. If you have previously applied for a job with Savage, the system will prepopulate all non-job specific fields that were completed from that previous application. You will be able to update those fields along with entering the job specific information within the new application.

What is the current status of my application?

Upon completion of the online application process, applicants receive a confirmation e-mail. At this point, the application is submitted to the job(s) of your choice. Applications are screened for the most qualified candidates to proceed to the next step in the process. Due to the large volume of applications, we are unable to personally respond to all applicants. All candidates will receive an email when their status changes.

If a Skills Assessment is required by the position, you may receive a second email notification reminding you to finish the assessment along with your first confirmation email.

Note: The application system will automatically take you to the assessment page upon completion of the application. If you complete the assessment at that time, you may ignore the reminder email message.

How do I update my application?

Once an online application is submitted, the only information that can be changed or updated is your contact information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number). If you need to change your contact information, please log in and enter your user name and password. Update your information and click Update Account Information.

The barge that hit the I-10 bridge over the San Jacinto River in Southwest Texas, causing traffic delays, is NOT a Savage barge. One of our boats in the area was apparently misidentified in a TV news report as being associated with the incident. That information is incorrect.
