Not how the media portrays it at all
Certified Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 9 August 2017
I went into working at 7-Eleven expecting it to be like you see in the movies: staffed by burnouts, dirty, suspect and wrinkled "foodstuffs" rolling away on the grill. That could not be further from the truth. My coworkers were amazing, and we all truly worked together as a team. Every single transaction and keystroke is meticulously recorded and analyzed to better track inventory, and reach higher sales targets. My manager was tough but fair, and gave me a lot of freedom to be creative with how things were done.The workplace benefits are nothing to shake your head at; regular raises, company wide incentives for achieving sales goals, medical and dental benefits after a certain point. The emphasis on cleanliness and adhering to health and safety codes is beyond anything I've ever experienced. I absolutely loved working there, and the hardest part of the job ended up being leaving it.
