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

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
Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ON – January 18, 2015

Cons: i can do up 12 hours / day
Start early morning, stop for lunch, the resume work till 4.00 PM.

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
