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 do not want to help you. There seems to be no privacy, everybody seems to be in everybody’s 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.
