Clerk (Former Employee) – Union City, CA – 4 September 2013
If you just need some money on the side and you don't need to support yourself, 7-11 is fine. The job will differ from store to store, different times can be more trying than others. The corporation is strict on the stores and that translates into more work for the clerks.
I ve Been working with seven eleven for almost two years , and its very terrrible , i work in a store that is in a very rough part of the city North End , very rude and disrespetful customers and very poor management of labour and proper staff making it one sided job for an experinced individual as the management wants only you to do most things , even after you clock out after your 8 hours of work , mananger will keep you and make you work additional tasks,always under immense pressure with no raise in salary,
Certified Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Quesnel, BC – 3 February 2017
Location and store manager greatly determine the enjoyment of this job. 7 Eleven cannot guarantee set hours or shifts. So you must be a flexible person to work here. There is a large amount of work that needs to be done on any given day and depending on your location you may be working with one or two other people. Team work is paramount, but can be impacted by poor store leadership. The benefits are great, but you have to stick around for 1 year part-time or 6 months full-time. And 7 Eleven always hires starting at part time. So any benefits are most likely to be a year away. I have worked for 7 Eleven since May 2015 and only now just received full time hours guaranteed.
Great place to learn lots and get lots of experience.
Store Manager / Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 12 February 2017
Lots of good and bad things about this company. I have learned lots of great business, marketing and managing skills here. Do not particularly enjoy how the company treats their employees however. Would still recommend job to others wanting that type of experience.
Great benefits. Lots to learn.
Stressful. Long hours. Extremely short deadlines. No humanity.
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 .
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vegreville, AB – 6 March 2017
for nightshift . I was in charge of filling the vault. sanitizing the bibs and changing them. if any ordering was not put into the system I would finish it. I put away the order. I was considered the nightshift supervisor with no raise.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 January 2017
I learn lots about Lotto, Smoke, Gas Bar . I like to learn different things in different business. I enjoyed merchandising. Management is partiality I mean different rules for different employee. Hardest part of job is night shift.
Decent at the start, but slowly turned worse. Started with good hours, but then was dropped; and forced to work nights mostly alone whilst robberies were becoming more common. I loved working when i started, but slowly turned away from it due to physical and emotional problems, and added stress of not fulfilling a decent salary quota for my living. Typical days where to get to work an hour early, help previous shift clean up and prep for my shift, count tills before starting, punch in, serve customers, clean after bad customers, get berated by drunks and rude customers, fear that at any moment i'd get robbed, find out that there were shoplifters, clean, prep food, clean, be bored, and find opened food and drink hidden away in cooler.
Friendly co-workers, friendly taxi drivers as customers.
Drunks, Unsafe, Felt unwanted as an employee, Eating expired food is theft and grounds for forced leave.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 2 December 2016

Manager (Former Employee) – Edson, AB – 19 July 2016
Not enough money for what the company expects. You are on call 24/7. You need to be every where at once. Deal with customers and not all are sober. Upper management does not understand the day to day stress of the job. No firm company protocol the FC and Market Managers seem to make things up as they go along and you get to many different answers for the same question. No one seems to want to make a decision.
no work life balance in fact yu are expected to give up your life and family for the store
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 10 March 2017
a monotonous, yet dynamic culture at work. I learned a lot about handling and supervising store and its tasks. Management was good. It has a nice culture, small petty tasks, easy to handle and meeting new and regular customers. Hard part was our manager was very strict and mistake finder, but overall kept a good discipline at store.
The most enjoyable part was how once you master your tasks, it becomes predictable and work becomes fun.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 3 September 2016
I worked the cashier and spent time cleaning up and cooking good when we had no customers. It was a decent job, but paid horribly, the hours were harsh, and was in a really dangerous neighbourhood with junkies coming in every night. So, when I saved up some money, I gave my two weeks and took some time off to study.
Plenty of hours, good co-workers, good learning experience
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.
7eleven is a very good company. they give you a full benefits and compensation. management and co workers are friendly and reliable. sometimes working on this 24 hours convenience store is scary because of roberry.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 March 2017
I have learned a lot of things here, using the till properly, handling difficult customers and many more. The management is great for the store that I work in, the manager understands situations and always try her best to help every employee. The least favorite thing in this job for me is asking people for their ID knowing they are over 18.
Store Leader/ Manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 July 2016
I've started as part time sales associate and now I am a store manager, This company helped me a lot about understanding management.There is no such thing as planned day at 7-eleven we have to be ready for surprises at every instance and be ready to deal with the effectively.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 22 March 2017
A typical day kept me busy and made the day go by fast. I loved seeing new faces as well as the returning customers we had everyday. Management was amazing! very understanding of me as I was currently 6 months pregnant when they hired me. I enjoyed the fast paced day. I worked hard to show that just because I was pregnant does not mean I was unable to work full days, full time and I can work just as hard as everyone else. Pregnancy was not a crutch for me. Hardest part of the job was finding all the specific tobacco brands as I was not a smoker. Best part was feeling like family when I went to work everyday.
