Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 June 2017
I learned a lot from my exsperience with this company. They have a long training program, but I found you were left to figure a lot out on your own. They expect you to juggle so much with minimal staff and hours, especially when you run a 24 hour business. Overall would not work a job like this again.

if consider learning i have learned a lot in this job as discussed in my resume but there were certain set backs in the job the worst of management particularly in my location no appreciation even if you exceed expectations in the job. Demotivated and all but some of the employees are really good and cooperative so with them i made it so far other wise no chance.

The management don't care even if you working hard. To much work the salary wasn't worth it. The FC so mean. And the hardest part of this job is you doing everything but they don't want you to stayed for overtime but they ask you to do everything for 8 hours or less. And there is a time that you cannot have a help for the management in short they don't care for they employee at all..
Certified Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 June 2017
I have been working here for the past 3 years. I am really happy with the management and the job culture provided by 7-11. There is always a possibility for advancement at 7-11 and they also increase your salary if you work hard.

At first, the workplace feels wonderful and everything is not too terribly stressful. However, over time, its difficult to not be stressed out with the crazy things that occur in that work place. From theft to assault, from drug abusers to kindly regulars. This workplace is either absolutely wonderful or completely dreadful.
Assistant Cashier (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 June 2017
7-Eleven is good to work for people who don't have any work experience. By working there they can gain various skills and there is also an opportunity for advancement. But, the thing is they are not paying well their employees. This is a drawback for them. If they have to retain their staff members than they have to pay them well based on the job responsibilities.
Free Coffee, Easy to learn work.
Not paying well and sometimes no job and life balance.
Store Manager/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Brandon, MB – 7 June 2017
The experience I had with the company was positive, the biggest drawback is the limited options for advancement past the store level. The flexibility of shifts is a plus for many, training ranges from average to excellent depending on the store you are trained in
Bussy, long customer line, each customer need a special greet and treat must be and quick servings to them. Also, alert on shoplifting same time. Correct cash handling and summaries of them also important. General cleaning, moping, serves to the customers on gas dispensing along with all these tasks are prominent.
I learned general customer approaches in the Canadian context. Also learned the Canadian money system, how differentials of responses are from the customers, security measures and how to act when a sudden related or unrelated problems arise during the shift. Canadian policies on shopliftings and behaviors of the lifters.
corporate culture, teamwork is highly needed.trustworthiness is most expected.
The hardest part is attending for personal problems of customers inside the store. That is a time waste.
The most enjoyable part is treatment from regular customers.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 May 2017
I was sexually assaulted in the work place by a night shift supervisor, the store manager did not seem to take this seriously. only after being fired was i able to contact the district manager who placed me again in a new location and dealt with the employee in question. The hours endlessly change are never consistent District manager is a very nice guy he helped me and look the situation very seriously.
other then that at the new location everything was wonderful except for the forever changing shifts and hours made it impossible to have a social life
i only had a bad experience in the first store the second store was good
shift hours change to often causing sleep deprivation

Great for a side job or just working to get some experience in sales and to save up for that PS4 or Xbox One that you wanted. Starter experience in ordering/Forecasting, receiving and verifying inventory orders and to know your local neighborhood. :)
