A company with a lot of potential, but doesn't have its priorities in line
Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – 2 October 2013
When I first come in, I check the white board and store journal to see if anyone made any updates(usually I'm the one making them). On Saturday through Wednesday, there's always an order open with a vendor that deals with the cooler(walk-in, vault), so I go in to count the items on hand, and that gives me the information I need to determine what to order, which I must say I enjoy the most out of all my job duties. The majority of my co-workers are inexperienced, and don't seem to grasp the concept of working at a convenient store. The direct management I report to is fairly decent. They respect my expertise and give me the days off I want and schedule me the days I wish to work, but also enforce the rules of higher management . Which leads me to the hardest part of my job. We throw away food at least once every two hours, and have been given specific instructions that this food must go in the trash and stay there. For the most part this food is not unsafe, just sub-quality, which I feel could be better used feeding starving people nearby. I comply with these rules in order to keep my job, but I wish these rules weren't in place.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 5 November 2016
Worked my way up to assistant manager in two years, working straight mid-nights for the first six years. Moved to a store in my city closer to my home. Hardest part was working with other employees that didn't have the same work ethitcs, so you where doing your work plus theirs. Learning every thing I learned there and meeting the customers
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 November 2016
A typical work day was customer based interacting. ie sales and services , it's a fast paced work environment. In my years of service I have learned to deal with many diverse people, treating anyone the same .. Business class or other wise. Th hardest part of the job is the continuous standing, we are human and need to sit at some point. The part I most enjoyed about the job in the customer interaction. Would I recommend this job to anyone.. The answer to that is YES .
Plenty of stocking jobs at night and less hours during the day.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 October 2016
They hired too many employees and laid off. The manager sent me to too many different locations within the company and did not pay for my additional gasoline and transportation needs. An my first weeks supplement paycheck did not include groceries as they held on to my check for one week.
Working at 7/11 was quite a learning experience, learning how to handle people that were drinking and handling hard tasks with quickly. The co-workers were okay...well some were, what I learned about them is that its not good to keep certain thing from the boss. I thing the hardest part about working there is dealing with the shoplifters, I had to write down every single thing that they took, then calling the head office to report it, it was unnecessary.
meeting new people and getting to know them
The co-workers were sneaking around and getting into truoble and I was getting blamed for it.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 25 October 2016
they have organised training plans for new hires, fast-paced environment with constant customer interactions. my manager oversee her need with manpower and apparently she hired too many which affected my schedule drastically since i only worked part time & was hired few months ago. hardest part maybe dealing with old staffs who were there almost forever because they are so used with what they were doing, they are hesitant to follow the standard and they are always complaining about their jobs. the enjoyable part is to be able to meet new people as our customers and be able to give them the customer service they deserve.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 October 2016
So far I love working at 7eleven. They ahve good benefits and the manager is so nice to the employees. The bad thing I hate about is your life is in danger because of the shoplifters and bad customers.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 6 October 2016
I found the job as a multi task , time management because the system of the store is designed in a way that you have to take the order and deliver the items to the customer in couple of minutes, so you have to be ready and quick in all your job hours time.
Manager, Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 1 October 2016
Long work days. Company is more than willing to train staff and promote within. Co-workers are great to work with. The hardest part is having the staff to meet the store needs. The most enjoyable part is that you have a sense of fulfillment you get with a job well done.
