MERCHANDISER/SALES (Current Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – February 7, 2017
I have a love/hate relationship with Core-Mark. I absolutly love, love(d) doing what I do (did) for CoreMark. I started young and hopeful. Felt I could "move up" and become something to them. I started out in Customer Service/Order Entry. Quickly moved to Merchandiser, where life was great! I would travel to stores and stock them, work by myself, did anything they asked of me. Moved up to Set Merchandiser, traveled state to state, did over nights. Loved it. Then I found out I was pregnant. I have never felt so chastised in my life, I was even asked what was I could to do about it? Am I stepping down? Leaving? A coworker even made the statement "Merchandisers don't have babies." I have had to fight my way tooth and nail for my raises and spiffs, when they gave them. I love to travel, I loved the customers. The job was fun for me. All you are is a number and not a face. It is a "typical politic" kind of environment.
Sales, comps, favoritism
