Canadian Wholesale Disaster...Your next Job will be Better
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Milton, Ontario – 16 July 2018
Core-Mark is a wholesaler of products for the convenience channel in the U.S.& Canada. The reputation of the companies service has long been a concern for the industry in the Ontario, Canada market place. There are some good people there but the general sales management is poor and customers suffer. I worked there as a sales representative for years and tried to make a difference, my customers appreciated the effort but fighting weak management practices, poor customer service policies, changing pricing and a lack of customer care worked against the sales focus.
Core-Mark tries to do too much and thus fails. The focus should be on WHOLESALING. Once a few general management (manager) changes occur the Ontario Division could recover. If you are considering Core-Mark as a long time career, re-evaluate your options. Short term roles to gain experience are fine but be prepared to work with tough leadership if you want to
stay "on the bus".
The salary is below average as wholesalers are not known for their high wages. It's not a profitable business trucking water, salt and cigs to convenience stores.
Harley Davidson changed and Core-Mark can too.
A FRESH approach is needed but if you apply, come to work, put in your time and have a High School Diploma - you may even become
General Manager someday.
Keep your head low, your mouth shut and don't try to improve the process and you will be fine. There will always be jobs available at Core-Mark.
Flexibility, inspirational sales meetings, summer BBQ's.
