This organization provides goods and services to the convenience food industries. Some of their customers include AM/PM, Circle K and Shell stations. A typical day includes the receiving, stocking of products from various vendors.

Growing Company with Innovative Ideas to Change the Market
Merchandising (Former Employee), TexasJuly 31, 2014
We were always recommended to think out of the box so that we could continue to be a game changer in the industry. The list of what is learned is lengthy but it is an example of how team work is terriffic. The management of the company is headed in the right direction but isn't always open to new ideas unless it was by a team of management. The team members of the job is the best part and a diverse group that made it possible to see set goals become reality.

Merchandiser (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAMay 7, 2014
I worked independently as a merchandiser i drove from gas station
to gas station. I communitcated well and got along very well with the owners and managers as well as employess of the gas stations. My job was to order there product such as dairy, snacks, medicine , automotive,etc. The hardest part of my job was to accuratley order to where they dont run our or dont over stock them. The most enjoyable part of my job is the communication and the relationships i grew with my customers.

Pros: guaranteed eight hours, good co-workers

MERCHANDISER (Current Employee), farmington, nmJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: benefits, work on your own
Cons: inability to take earned time off, hearing from management only when you do something wrong.
My typical work day is chaotic. If you enjoy working alone and only hear from supervisors when you do something wrong, then this would be an ideal job. In the beginning of my work time with this company I was taught how to read plan-o-grams for reset purposes, how to train new employees properly, and learn every aspect in stores that we serviced. I believe the most enjoyable part of my job is getting to know the store personnel on a working basis and personal basis. I have learned as the years have progressed that there really is no advancement opportunities and therefore I becoming very stagnant in my position.

Great company to work for.
Food Service Manager, Las Vegas Division (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVOctober 30, 2013
Pros: being part of a good team of people
Cons: being let go due to cut backs
Everyday was a a blast. Getting out in the field seeing customers and getting new business was amazingly fun

The management was a fountain of sales experience and customer service, most with up to 40 years in the business.

Some times getting the management to try new things was a challenge. I got pretty good at selling to the customer and having to sale things to my boss.

I enjoyed the people I worked with at Core-Mark. The atmosphere was up beat and we all worked together to make sure the customers were serviced.

Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: great insurance, 401k matching
Cons: unpredictable changes in loads and customers
A typical day at work would be to come in and start with the drivers paperwork, hand off the things to other departments that are due. Update spreadsheets, boards and my co workers. Work closely with the drivers as they came to the office. My co-workers are very easy to get along with and we have a fun working environment even tho day to day operations could become hectic. My boss is a very calm and colected individual and he knows what he is doing and how to better the transportation department.
The hardest part of the job would come on the days that everything that could go wrong would go wrong, and we would have a hay day trying to get everything accomplished.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be the interactions that I had with my co worker and the drivers. We could always laugh. By the end of the week it would be a relief to escape for the weekend but you always looked forward to coming in Monday morning to see what chalanges await for the upcoming week.

Independant work atmoshpere
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Eureka, CAJuly 29, 2013
Pros: out on the road, not in an office. new people to meet everyday
Cons: sometimes long hours 12-16 hour days based on driving distances
I spent 9 years at Core-Mark International. This was a route sales job involving sales calls to mainly convenience stores. Daily, tasks included ordering products, selling new items, selling contracts and programs, merchandising products, solving customer problems, and collections. I learned the most about store merchandising and small business operations. New store openings that I sold were the most challenging but also the most fun. Presenting your ideas to the owners and then ordering everything to get the store open was truly rewarding.
The hardest part of the job was communicating to different departments to problem solve for your customers. Once you knew all the key players this became much easier.
The most enjoyable part of the job was coming back to the customers each week and seeing what value you could bring ti their business.

Very exciting place to work.
Loader/Hostler (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJuly 3, 2013
Pros: the money
Cons: its bitter cold.
The day always has new challenges to overcome, I learned how to use a fork lift and pallet jack, and how refrigerated trucks operate. The management is ok, co workers are hard to understand most of the time. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the freezing temps inside of the freezer and freezer trucks. The money is the best part about this job. And bonuses.
