    Pros

    The people were very close and always had each others back. Good company for someone that does their best work without being micromanaged. Work-life balance was pretty good in the department that I worked.

    Cons

    Pay. Other companies in this industry have a better pay structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring pay up to compete with your competition.

    I have been working at Core-Mark full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. You are out on the road delivering by yourself which makes life easier.

    Cons

    There is no training structure. There is no room for advancement. Equipment is often broken and not repaired. Favoritism runs rampant with middle management. No responsibility for mistakes taken by management. All safety bonuses were taken away. Communication is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. The upper and middle management need to learn how to actually manage a department and division.

    Corporate needs to make sure division management has a heart and communicates with its employees

    I worked at Core-Mark for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, I can say they have an all around good insurance program. The offices and breakrooms are clean.

    Cons

    I used to be a positive person before I started working for this company. I soon realized there was a cultlike attitude with upper management. You have to swear allegiance to a group of sensitive, ego maniac managers that live and breath Coremark. Now let me say, I am passionate wherever I work, but I begun to loathe the environment. They push and prod middle management along with frontline workers whilst offering no support. And don't dare disagree with one of them or their egos will crumble, and you'll be marked. At least one good thing comes from this, I'm now reevaluating my life, goals and searching for a different career. This company could be so much more if management got behind their team instead of prancing around barking orders and sending snarky emails. Even the poor pay would be just a bit easier to deal with if you had a strong leadership base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in UPPER management professionalism and leadership training, as well as middle management. But trust me that its needed at the highest level per division.
     Actually invest in real training, for all departments at the division level. This company has the poorest training program I've ever seen.

    Stop justifying bad behavior because you proclaim the numbers "are good". Support middle management and your frontline. Stop referring to people as stupid, stop picking on people who disagree, stop communicating in emails like highschool children, stop trying to talk everyone into drinking the coolaid. Lead by example and be open to suggestions and feedback.

    I have been working at Core-Mark

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good Chance to travel to different division and work with good people all over the country.

    Cons

    Management sometimes it is a revolving door. Working nights is hard on the family life. You sometimes have to chase her money to get paid correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation for the employees around you to help make management look good.

    I have been working at Core-Mark

    Pros

    Management mostly stays out of the way. The load quality is usually very good.

    Cons

    Management seems to be a revolving door. I don't actually know the name of my direct supervisor. I don't know if I have a direct supervisor. The pay scale is a per load thing instead of hourly, but it averages out to about $19/hr straight time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your drivers by the hour and at a rate competitive with the industry.
