Assistant store leader (Current Employee), Surrey, BC – September 14, 2015
one bad thing about customer service is that if you are a short tempered person then customer service is not your field no matter what happens the company doesn't want to lose the customer even if he spits on your face.
Store Manager (Current Employee), Prince George, BC – April 23, 2015
Cons: pay low and you have to wait 6 months for benefits.
would not reccommend this employer to work for as they think you should live at 7 eleven and have high expectations for little hours you can schedule your staff. the training is poor and you dont have time between your busy day to even train.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Vancouver, BC – April 16, 2015
Pros: nice place to learn multitasking
Cons: managers should be trained to work under pressure
the day starts with lots of work which is very good part like cleaning the store and make it look fabulous. i learnt to manage my time under hectic pressure management was not that good, it could have – more... been a better to work if the manager was adjustable. co-workers were very good hard part of the job was nothing. it is a easy job to do but always with a good manager most enjoyable part of the job was with the register – less
Store Manager (Former Employee), calgary ab – April 7, 2015
Pros: free coffe
Cons: long hours and suprise shifts
Work at 7 Eleven was a little busy it was hard to balance home life and work life because there would be a lot of phone calls at home about absence and I would have to call other employees to see if they could fill in if not I would have to fill in myself. Typical job of a manager who works at a convince store. Job creates street and some people cannot take it.
Customer Service Attendant (Current Employee), London, ON – March 11, 2015
Was a very repetitive job that part I enjoyed, a lot of work needed to be done in one shift which could also be hard at times with not much time or help, something that can also be difficult. I enjoyed all my co-workers I enjoy people a lot.
Cashier (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – February 20, 2015
Overall I enjoyed the people I was around. However because of short staffing I would be called in at 10 pm to work a overnight shift. I would show up rain or shine if I got a call to come in but never did I get a raise or even the day off I would schedule off months in advance. However it was a pleasant experience and I learnt alot from it.
Cashier (Former Employee), Spruce Grove, AB – February 10, 2015
Pros: free fountain drinks
Cons: bullies amongst staff
I really enjoyed working for 7- Eleven until one employee really started coming down on and bullying me. So I had left there, but I would go back to working for 7-Eleven any day. Maybe a different location though
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Mississauga, ON – February 6, 2015
Busy day, lots of things to take care of, good at multitasking that makes work easier, friendly and supportive co workers, hardest part of the job: Fresh food, most enjoyable part of the job: meeting different friendly people each day.
Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – February 5, 2015
Pros: very good learning experience
Cons: you hardly get time to take break and have your food.
My typical day was when i had given new lady to help me, she hardly know English and was not good with cash handling. So i took a lead and watch her transaction also and also have to keep eye on Gas pumps – more... and rest of the store. I taught her and made her comfortable with the job duties, here i find Leadership quality in me. Co-workers are very friendly and we have great fun while working. My hardest part of the job is doing night shifts as i am the only guy working and whole store is on me, so i have to take care of everything going around the store. The most enjoyable part of my job is to chat with customers. I like to talk with them and try to build social relations so they give maximum business to our store. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SK – January 30, 2015
Pros: can work up to management with ease
Cons: 7-11 believes everyone steals and you are constantly being watched
I worked for 7-11 for 10 years in the #2805 I had many managers and I found that the work environment really depended on how good your manager is! The main thing that you need to remember is that 7-11 – more... believes that everyone steals and sets up a good system to catch any staff theft. The pay starts off horrible but you can work yourself up to a good wage!! The 1st five years were amazing and I quite enjoyed it! Then there where major changes and I spent the last 5 years trying to like my job again!! I have heard that there are different field consultants now for 2805 I don't know if those changes got better or not!! – less
It's an all-around work that will enhance your capabilities/skills.
Food Service Counter Attendant (Former Employee), Slave Lake, AB – January 28, 2015
Pros: free pops and slush
Cons: too tiring shift...
It's a 24-hours store operation. I worked at the till and usually afternoon shift. Sometimes I worked morning, evening or even in the kitchen if they're short of staff.
I learned how to be independent – more... and on-stop decision making mostly when supervisor or manager is not in.
Management is good, we have designated task everyday so that everyone could contribute to the store cleanliness and organized.
There's no hard part of the job, it's just like you should love what your doing. Oh i remember, lifting is one of the hardest thing among girl staff because they have to carry or lift like a cases of pop for shelvings.
the most enjoyable part of the job is that we can communicate with the customers. have fun dealing with them and making a happy community. – less
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – January 26, 2015
Pros: not at my main store, but one of the other stores i worked at has a great team spirit approach to the job.
Cons: manager and district manager who do not listen properly
I worked at three of the stores in Hamilton. My former manager is not very competent at his job which is part of the reason I quit. He worked for the company about six months longer than I did. A manager – more... who has been working for the company for 15+ years as well as one of her assistant managers who has been working for the company for 15+ years as well would both like to hire me as they know I am a great employee to have on their team. Actions my former manager did include preventing them from hiring me. Some of the actions he did was let me take the blame for something he did on a regular basis (and I was the employee who caught his mistake and fixed it). A district manager who grossly violated the ESA. Like my former manager she has only been working for the company about a year or two longer than I had. She also proved that she does not listen very well and instead gets in her head what she thinks is 'the truth' and she then has as much listening comprehension as a wall does from that point forward. Her very own actions proved to this be true about her.
I was in line to be one of the assistant managers. My manager expected me to get other employees to get stuff done. He also told other employees that they did not need to listen to me. When I asked him directly about this he went into evasive politician mode. – less
Management/Operations (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BC – January 9, 2015
Pros: lots of training provided.
I was fortunate in benefiting from all the in-house training programs and participated in many of the new programs by providing my leadership skills to enable these new programs to get started on a positive footing. Enjoyed mentoring many co-workers and I am still friends with them today.
Long years of multiple experiences and hold high integrity jobs .
Audit supervisor . (Former Employee), GTA – December 31, 2014
Cons: i can do up 12 hours / day
Start early morning, stop for lunch, the resume work till 4.00 PM. Learned Varieties of experiences, easily gets along with the others, gained patience and positive communications skills from the supervisory – more... auditing Job. Commitment, punctuality and listen more than talk . I do not be leave that there is a hardest part and easiest parts of jobs, but it is a matter of adaptation, and any job takes a while to get familiar with, just to follow the policies – less
