    Pros

    Money, while it lasts.

    Cons

    Horrible management. I saw a new driver manager, complete with their whole new way of doing things, every 6 months in Bakersfield division. They put you in danger with where you must park at times, and don’t care. Bring a problem to their attention, and they start looking for a way to get rid of you instead of fixing the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Resign

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

    Pros

    the only good things I can is maybe the benefits and the discount at the warehouse. Besides those two minor pros that I had to dig deep to think of there isn’t much

    Cons

    Pay next to nothing on top of not being paid on time. Very messy and inconsistent. They are losing business as a result and will be evident when it comes time to re new contracts with big accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging isn’t good for business.
    Pay your employees for what they are worth. 8.50 is a joke for what you guys expect. And your turnover ratio will continue to stay high until this is realized and is no longer just a one way street.

    Pros

    Coworkers, PTO, there really are no other Pros to working for this division

    Cons

    Unprofessional and unethical management. Management plays favorites and you have an employee who has a record thicker then most people are tall throws a temper tantrum threatens everybody and walks off the job then months later you hire this employee back and put them in charge of everybody now slowly this manager now is taking out his grudges and firing employee by employee hiding failures from upper management sending out spoiled food that's in the danger zone to its customers great place to work LOL

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention before you have a lawsuit or make a customer sick

    Pros

    While slightly below market rate, transportation jobs are usually steady and well managed.

    Cons

    Loved the job. Long time driver. And then.... company decided that they needed to place driver facing cameras in the trucks. They already had peoplenet, dash cam and lane deviation along with cameras in some trailers inside and out. Most drivers have no problems with any of those devices except the Driver View Cam. It also records all conversations. Most drivers did not choose the profession to be watched while driving. A few people have already left the company. Welcome to 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Truck driver are an entirely different kind of employee than most others. You depend on us to be the wheels of your company. Drivers are also usually the employees with the most dependable work records in the company. You have lost our trust with your driver view camera. Take them out. We are not thieves.
