    Pros

    Nice people
    Corporate seems like they want it to be a good place to work

    Cons

    Management. There is only 1 salary person that has any idea what is going on in the place.
    Nobody is held accountable for their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your good workers like humans and not like slaves. Just because they're reliable doesnt mean they're willing to take the abuse.

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

    Pros

    There aren't any pros to this company at all.

    Cons

    This company is a 10+ Billion Dollar company would takes away the standard IRS mileage rate for individuals who travel and utilize their own cars from the .53 cents a mile down to 0.09 cents a mile. Accordingly, in the IRS Notice 2016-79, section 3, it states the following: "The standard mileage rate for transportation or travel expenses is 53.5 cents per mile for all miles of business use (business standard mileage rate). See section 4 of Rev. Proc. 2010-51." Also Section 4 states the following: "For automobiles a taxpayer uses for business purposes, the portion of the business standard mileage rate treated as depreciation is 23 cents per mile for 2013, 22 cents per mile for 2014, 24 cents per mile for 2015, 24 cents per mile for 2016, and 25 cents per mile for 2017." In addition to not using the IRS table, we are expected to use our own cars, because Core Mark felt that the needed to get rid of the company cars, because it was costing too much money to repair them. Well what about my car? We are not offered any kind of reimbursements or incentives for using our own cars and the wear and tear of the extensive traveling that we do to set up convenience stores with merchandise. I travel from Oxford, down to Louisiana, over to Arkansas, into Tennessee, back down to Louisiana in one week. Do the math...it doesn't add up and I am the one that looses money, not the company.

    Advice to Management

    Give those that travel better incentives.

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

    Pros

    I actually like to work out so this job was basically just building Legos with some curveballs. Easy incentive as long as you pay attention

    You get one headphone in one ear

    If you like working 10-15hrs a day (I do)

    I'd go back if they take me

    Cons

    This review is my personnel opinion on what I have seen (while my time here i just did my job and turned a blind eye like management has)
    Many OSHA rules and regulations are not met in many areas.

    The freezer eachs is a a decade or more behind in technology. No hooks. No labels for pick locations (doesn't matter for me it's pretty "simple").

    No hooks in grocery case either (have too climb racks to get jammed product). Forklift operators sure take their time in refilling pick locations (they only have one person doing both grocery case and freezer case!.

    The pick locations are all awful. Don't you go to school for stuff like this? Logistics maybe? Who's job is that? Travis is his name?. Yeah. I don't think he's doing it right (or just simply not using common sense)

    The facility is full of dirt (some employees won't pick up the dirt without a broom and pan) I'll use a piece of paper and my hands!

    A Big One. There are some employees who you can just look at and tell they don't care about their job (managers don't see it, but when you walk away they bad mouth you about how you chewed them)

    Don't talk about pay. It's hush hush. And anything involving pay will be pushed and swept under the rug until further notice.

    I don't like my 401k to go into core-marks stock. If the company goes under so does my money.

    Advice to Management

    Work on pick locations and what merchandise goes back (some privately owned businesses are not going to take a product tha looks all beat to hell and held together by some duct tape

    Pros

    A great atmosphere with hard working employees. Management is dedicated to promoting within and establishing a great culture at work.

    Cons

    The industry is forever changing so securing and holding onto business partnerships can be challenging. The Sales team has to stay ahead of the game and on their toes.

    Keep it up!
