Pros: the pay was good, my manager lily was awesome until she was replaced by someone not as qualified

Company Evaluation Summary
Order Selector, warehouse worker (Former Employee), Calgary, AlbertaMay 14, 2012
Core-Mark was a fine company since it first started in 1888. Its main objective is to service the convenience industry. I had worked in its Calgary warehouse for nine years. I was growing frustrated because there were very little chances of career advancements. I was on the seniority list for five years. It was after I witnessed three junior members – more... being promoted pass me that I decided to leave this dead end job. The pay was good. The working conditions were acceptable. However there were lack of communications between management and the staff. – less

Growing Company with Innovative Ideas to Change the Market
Merchandising (Former Employee), TexasJuly 31, 2014
We were always recommended to think out of the box so that we could continue to be a game changer in the industry. The list of what is learned is lengthy but it is an example of how team work is terriffic. The management of the company is headed in the right direction but isn't always open to new ideas unless it was by a team of management. The team – more... members of the job is the best part and a diverse group that made it possible to see set goals become reality. – less

MERCHANDISER (Current Employee), farmington, nmJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: benefits, work on your own
Cons: inability to take earned time off, hearing from management only when you do something wrong.
My typical work day is chaotic. If you enjoy working alone and only hear from supervisors when you do something wrong, then this would be an ideal job. In the beginning of my work time with this company I was taught how to read plan-o-grams for reset purposes, how to train new employees properly, and learn every aspect in stores that we serviced. I – more... believe the most enjoyable part of my job is getting to know the store personnel on a working basis and personal basis. I have learned as the years have progressed that there really is no advancement opportunities and therefore I becoming very stagnant in my position. – less

Great company to work for.
Food Service Manager, Las Vegas Division (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVOctober 30, 2013
Pros: being part of a good team of people
Cons: being let go due to cut backs
Everyday was a a blast. Getting out in the field seeing customers and getting new business was amazingly fun

The management was a fountain of sales experience and customer service, most with up to 40 years in the business.

Some times getting the management to try new things was a challenge. I got pretty good at selling to the customer and having to – more... sale things to my boss.

I enjoyed the people I worked with at Core-Mark. The atmosphere was up beat and we all worked together to make sure the customers were serviced. – less

Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: great insurance, 401k matching
Cons: unpredictable changes in loads and customers
A typical day at work would be to come in and start with the drivers paperwork, hand off the things to other departments that are due. Update spreadsheets, boards and my co workers. Work closely with the drivers as they came to the office. My co-workers are very easy to get along with and we have a fun working environment even tho day to day operations – more... could become hectic. My boss is a very calm and colected individual and he knows what he is doing and how to better the transportation department.
The hardest part of the job would come on the days that everything that could go wrong would go wrong, and we would have a hay day trying to get everything accomplished.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be the interactions that I had with my co worker and the drivers. We could always laugh. By the end of the week it would be a relief to escape for the weekend but you always looked forward to coming in Monday morning to see what chalanges await for the upcoming week. – less

Independant work atmoshpere
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Eureka, CAJuly 29, 2013
Pros: out on the road, not in an office. new people to meet everyday
Cons: sometimes long hours 12-16 hour days based on driving distances
I spent 9 years at Core-Mark International. This was a route sales job involving sales calls to mainly convenience stores. Daily, tasks included ordering products, selling new items, selling contracts and programs, merchandising products, solving customer problems, and collections. I learned the most about store merchandising and small business operations. – more... New store openings that I sold were the most challenging but also the most fun. Presenting your ideas to the owners and then ordering everything to get the store open was truly rewarding.
The hardest part of the job was communicating to different departments to problem solve for your customers. Once you knew all the key players this became much easier.
The most enjoyable part of the job was coming back to the customers each week and seeing what value you could bring ti their business. – less

Very exciting place to work.
Loader/Hostler (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJuly 3, 2013
Pros: the money
Cons: its bitter cold.
The day always has new challenges to overcome, I learned how to use a fork lift and pallet jack, and how refrigerated trucks operate. The management is ok, co workers are hard to understand most of the time. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the freezing temps inside of the freezer and freezer trucks. The money is the best part about this – more... job. And bonuses. – less

Great company but has it's moments.
Division Controller (Current Employee), Leitchfield, KYFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: good benefits and fine co-workers
Cons: highly stressfull, not an easy communte.
Core-Mark is a wholesale food distributor with very very slim profit margins. We are always looking for ways to increase the bottom line whether from top lines sales or expense reduction. There is alot of pressure on the senior management at the division level to met expectations. The stress level is be very intense at times.

I have a great staff of – more... 12 very hard workers. We try to have a good time when possible but everyone understands that we must take our responsiblities very serious.

My desk is full of "requirments" due to us being a public company. SOX compliance is probably the toughest part of my job and may well be the most time consuming.

Overall a great place to work. – less

Unorganized company with no guide lines, The company needs some structure
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee), Grants Pass, ORJanuary 26, 2013
Pros: we would have several lunches provided by the company, once a month birthday cakes, holiday lunch
Cons: no privacy, the office had heating and cooling issues, the office was really dirty, heavy boxes to lift
The one thing I liked about Core-Mark Int. is there was always plenty of work to do. I learned a lot about Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable; I worked well with my manager. Core-Mark needs to change its attitude toward fellow workers. Co-workers who have been there 15 to 20 years have an attitude that you need to learn things on your own and – more... do not want to help you. There seems to be no privacy, everybody seems to be in everybody‚Äôs business, also the warehouse manager would spread gossip.
My manager allowed me to put a book together to explain my job on how to process things, and how to do them systematically in that position. I enjoyed doing this for the next person so they would not have as much of a problem as I had, and would have some kind of reference to look things up.
A lot of Co-Workers were like little kids in the mannagers office complaining about fellow Co-Workers on things they were doing themselves, these were issues that the manager did not need to be bothered with. – less

not a good company to work for
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 22, 2012
Pros: spiffs
Cons: low pay, long hours, poor management
I work for this company for 5 years..This company under pays their employees, they make them work long hours.. They make their sales force work holidays, when other employees in administration receives the holidays off. They give free dress to office employees on Fridays, and not to the rest of their employees.. They have GPS on all employees, because – more... they do not trust them. The management team discriminates, their an typical "boys club", were most woman are not promoted from within, they either move them to a lower paying position, or demote them within the company.. – less
