    Pros

    Core Mark is a growing company with great health care benefits, workable 8hr shifts and plenty of overtime with a descent management team.

    Cons

    There will be times where management may not understand certain situations going on in employees life so they may not be as empathic to an employee, start time is at 5am which is bad if you are on bus line, and the work days can be unnecessarily long due to mismanagement scheduled deliveries.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be a little more empathic to your employees, and for management to get the scheduled truck deliveries in order.
