    I worked at Core-Mark full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Positive work environement, cheap health plans, provides the needed training, not very complex business model.

    Cons

    Horrible pay due to tight budget, Old redundant tools and workstations, no one heard of the company, what perks, high turnover which in turn messes up other employee's work and schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and treat employees as assets that will take the company to the next level.

    I have been working at Core-Mark full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    All the work you can handle and then some. Great place to get experience for another driving job.

    Cons

    Changing your schedule many times over the span of the week. One day hand schedule change four times. Make you run illegal and turn a blind eye to it. Run you 30 hours with no sleep. Pay is a joke. Three different pay scales for miles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a single mile pay. After 200 miles you are only making 23 cents a mile... Cant wait till I have a little more experience then I will find a better job. CDL drivers are in high demand and core-mark does not understand that..

    I worked at Core-Mark full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very easy to become indispensable to the corporation by specializing in any one of many proprietary systems. This entails long hours and travel but can be rewarding.

    Cons

    The warehousing industry is of such a thin margin that maintaining even standard industry practices stretches budgets thin leaving little to reinvest in human potential. Thin margins also mean thin margins for error and with that no way to pick up the slack when things do fall behind. This is not a company with money to venture with.

    I worked at Core-Mark

    Pros

    The only good thing about that place was they had new tractors that's it.

    Cons

    Management sucked they had the slightest clue what was going on out on the road, the pay was crap the lumpers who make a little about minimum wage were making a lot more then the drivers and the drivers had 20x the amount of responsibility, core-mark takes customers over employees and freight over employees. With the amount of hours you work you could make more money flipping burgers. They like to run the driver illegal by making them go into sleeper birth but work the whole time tell your co driver is out of hours so you work 22+ hrs at a time. For the ones who are to blinded to see it but core-mark pays you on a sliding scale per mile so you make nothing.. I would not recommend this place on my worst enemy.. I'm glad I got out of there and went to do line haul where I'm home every night making 80k a year. Core-mark makes it sound good in the hiring and interview to sucker you into there crap work with there crap pay.

    Pros

    There are none. There are none. There are none. There are none. There are none. There are none. There are none.

    Cons

    They have been sued numerous times for multiple illegal infractions. Nepotism runs rampant within this organization. Drug use among Core-Mark employees is a wide-spread problem. My only advice is to stay away from this company
