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

    Pros

    Lots of hours, good pay, good benefits, plenty of over time, but that's about it, not much more good about this job

    Cons

    Long hours, 12-14 hour days minimum, management is crap, very unorganized, inventory is a wreck, they don't know where half the product is

    Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online. Position was first opened a year ago, applied for it and never heard anything. Position once again came open. Applied for it again and heard back from HR. But... "While your skills and background are impressive, we have decided to proceed with other applicants who more closely fit our needs at this time."

    So let's get this right: high school diploma needed (I have grad school) and 1 year of merchandising experience required (I have over 3 years plus 8 years of sales experience). Canned email response after applying for the position TWICE (last year and this year). Any women doing this job? Would love to see if there are any in the field.
