    Pros

    I really cant think of any pros for a driver at this company.

    Cons

    Running a ramp, your knees and feet will take a beating.
    Always in a rush. No time to relax you're on the go go go.
    The pay, the only way you're gonna get paid good money working here is by working your butt off. They pay you route pay, not hourly. So if you have a freak load of cubes in your trailer and a grip of miles on a route. You will make ok money i guess, to me the pay was not even close to worth it. Your body gets beat up. I feel like i got screwed on my pay a bunch of times. To figure out your pay is a damn math equation from hell. So many variables in your pay to add everything up and make sure your route pay is correct is a nightmare. Oh and team pay will screw you over. You have to have a minimum of 950 cubes if you are partnered with another driver to make 100% route pay, if it is below that you get 70% pay for that day. That is ridiculous. So say you go on a very long day trip. 11-14 hrs. You have 900 cube which is still a lot. You get SCREWED on that pay. You make nothing. To make money here your gonna have to get a route that has a lot of cubes, and you need a lot of miles. Pay was too unpredictable due to covering routes when you first get hired. Ya some seniority guys might make good coin. But they are working their butts off and getting beat up by that stupid ramp. I will never run a ramp again. I work for freight now and my body feels so much better. And i am a young guy.
    The managers i had were horrible. No communication. Lack of leadership. Just seem to not care. Didn't know what they were doing, always a circus there.
    I didn't enjoy one second driving there. I got out as soon as i could.
    DEAD END JOB.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with the drivers. At least fake like you care.

    Pros

    Free samples that we get sometimes.

    Cons

    the culture in Core-Mark are favoritism. you can be label as "un-promotable" on your first day. Do not matter how many times you proves them wrong. or how many big and important project that you successfully perform. you still un-promotable. Manager will use you and use their name on all of the result. OH, and they will blame you for things you have no idea of.

    Advice to Management

    you guys might be good at what you do, but you're a very BAD manager. ALL of you from the bottom to the top executives. The good managers you give them such a hard time till and you blame them for everything until they quit. if you want to do something right look at your worker (not the managers) how many of us are happy.

    I worked at Core-Mark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay used to be good for quick workers, however managers made it an unbearable place to work and there's no telling how many hours you'd get

    Cons

    Management is the #1 issue here. They even admit they're not needed as everything runs better when they're not there. They will lie to you and try to get everything they can out of you. Don't kill yourself for this company, you won't get anything from it.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people doing the work instead of your underhanded forcing out of hard workers.

    I worked at Core-Mark full-time

    Pros

    Workforce was friendly as a whole and the location of the office was in close proximity to my home in NC.

    Cons

    The pay scale was not compensatory to other locations in NC and there is no opportunity for upward movement or job growth.

    Advice to Management

    The management should value their employees more as the company has a very high turnover rate due to the dissatisfaction of their employees.
