Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall it's a small branch here in Calgary. My position was newly created by the director of Calgary Operations and they bumped up my yearly salary by $5k after adding some additional responsibilities to my role. Later after I joined and I found out that a senior employee of mine is already doing my job. The difference was my title has a lead in it. Following a couple of informal meetings with the director, it seemed like the senior management was unable to get this employee to change to their expectations so it was made clear to me that I should start putting that employee's main responsibilities on my plate and eventually fire him if necessary. I wasn't sure at the time how performance coaching became this difficult with this employee or it was the union environment. Consequently, the management style of this division was in question as this employee turned out to be a great guy with great knowledge. Ever since the beginning, I became sidelined by other employees who were defending this employee. The ones that were supposed to train me were never available by phone or text. The company also doesn't have a formal training program. Upon my review, they were dissatisfied with my performance. Their answer to no training was that it's a fast-paced company so why should they provide training. I found this claim to be extremely bothersome. Especially given the fact that I hadn't worked in the sector and was recruited from a different sector for my talent and transferrable skills. So what was my real job responsibility? Fire my senior employee and take his job. Real classy.

Pros

Pay and bonus, decent mileage reimbursement, slow-paced environment

Cons

Politics and discrimination

Changes are good

Most people are great to work with but some management could be nicer. Every year is getting better and we like the new hr people are very helpful more than the old people. The texas head office people creates more work for everyone and doesnt understand what is happening. The work place is very fast paced and challenging.

Pros

Challenging work

Cons

Corporate Texas is out of touch and out of line

Working there

very poor management. People get used and abused. If you try to make changes you are quickly removed. If you stand up for things you will be removed. I would not recommend this place until

Az driver london

Great place to work. If you like a fast paced environment. Hard work but you get rewarded well. First company I’ve worked for that management appreciates the drivers and work we do. I would recommend this company. Thanks for the opportunity.

Pros

Run away

Drivers are overworked with way too many deliveries for one person a day. lack of respect for management They seem to think drivers are just a number Way too many safety issues i.e. inexperienced drivers. Drivers using other peoples E logs because they are over the hours of service and management doesn’t do anything when they’re called out about it

Pros

Nothing at all

Cons

Your a Slave

Good job that could be much better

Unreasonable loads. Too many stops, too much to deliver in a day on routes that's way too far from vancouver. Very long exhausting days. Good pay, good equipment and benefits but most of the guys quit within a week or so because is way too much work for one person especially the lifting part. It was not a good experience for me. Ended up getting sick and hurt at the end of my term

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Bad management

They like to promote the company as a family. It's far from it!

It's one of the worse warehouses I have ever worked at. Safety is not a priority in this warehouse and when you get hurt, they don't care. It's a real task to get management to create an accident report. It is not shocking to see the occasional fist fight. The women order pickers are constantly fighting with each other. Management thinks that if they give you a BBQ and hotdogs lunch occasionally that they are doing a great thing. Don’t bother to go to the Xmas party that is given in February when it’s cheaper. You are given 1 drink and the food is really bad. The benefits are not that good either. There are better companies out there. It’s a revolving door in the warehouse and the office. Don’t work at the Milton Core-Mark.

Bad management, no support for humanity

Great staff, great atmosphere but isolating if you’re not office staff. Then new management came in late 2014 and cut staff in terrible ways by finding loop holes in legalities. I don’t know how they could sleep at night!

Racism is Rampant

The most racist toxic place I've worked in. The upper management in operations is completely narrow minded and will not work with employees or listen to them. Senior Drivers are paid based on race and subjective traits such as knowing upper management, they are violating equal work for equal pay act. Hope someone sues them. Do not work here, its a waste of your talent and energy. They won't change and pay is horrible.

Comfortable Work Place

I learned a lot at Core-Mark. very nice work place. The management does not encourage us to grow and have a good professional development. The hardest part of the job is learning about my roles taking notes.

Pros

Quite environment

Cons

No meetings and appreciation for our work

A good place to work for. Barbecue activities and some other more.

Working for CoreMark is a very good experience. The top management of the company from the President to the managers are all down-to-earth. They wont make you feel uneasy.

Culture is terrible

Most people that work here I found had a very negative attitude and management I think mirrored that back onto his workers, or vice versa, and made for a very negative place to work at

Hard work. No job security. Unorganized routes & Zero accountability from management.

Management needs a complete overhaul. Despite their claims at company meetings to improve communication, overall work environment and route & maintenance organization, this is not the case. Non management are just numbers, nothing more. Do what your told and don't express concerns otherwise you'll pay for it in one way or another. Negativity is always pin pointed, and its rare you'll get a "Good Job!" or receive any appreciation for the extra mile you'll put in to make up for the constant mistakes throughout the company. There is no room for advancement and very poor salary. Despite their claims. Drivers & warehouse employees wages are well below competitors rates. Day to day can be very stressful with next to no solution from management. "It is what it is" and "We'll pass it along" are phrases you'll hear spoken consistently. If you're considering applying for a position with Core-mark, rethink this move. You'll go nowhere fast have have very little to feel proud of.

Pros

Paid hotels. Good Benefits, 3 days off a week.

Cons

Forever changing management with zero accountability, All stats are worked, unorganized routes.

Customer Service Representative, Milton ON

Management needs a complete overhaul. Despite their claims to improving overall work environment and atmosphere, this is not the case. Non management are just numbers, nothing more. There is no room for advancement and very poor salary. This company claims to be competitive with salaries, however in customer service this is not the case. Very stressful with next to no compensation. If you're considering applying for a position in customer service, rethink this move. You'll go nowhere fast.

Pros

Co-workers are a great team despite poor management.

Cons

Poor, poor, poor wages. Not even a Christmas bonus.

Great Employees, Poor Management!

I have to say that the majority of employees who work here are fantastic! They are a very tight family as they have to be, as they need to constantly support each other as management is so poor. When I was brought on I was told that old toxic management were all let go and were trying to bring on new employees who can fix the poor culture. They brought in a new DP and eventually a new HR Manager. Those two people are probably the worse, most toxic, and most disrespecting people I have ever met. All they clearly care about is money. They bring with them poor communication, mismanagement of employees, and an old school mentality of hierarchy with poor engagement. Management needs to lead by example and create a positive working environment for employees to perform at their best capacity - which does not happen at the Alberta location. I have heard this is similar across all divisions in the US and Canada. My advice is to run... run far away!
