Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 April 2017
The company is a great place to work. The most enjoying part of the job is meeting people of all races, cultures and different economic background. The workplace culture is friendly. The management team is awesome. The hardest part of the job is understanding customers' accents.
Manager of Operations (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 March 2017
A topical day consists of 4 or 5am start, if the staff show up for their shifts your done by 3pm. That being said getting everything done that is expected is impossible, you are running a gas station, a restaurant, and a convenience store all at the same store.. If staff doesn't show up your doing their jobs as well as your own and it can snowball very quickly. You cannot have enough staff to prevent this so be prepared to put in countless hrs making your "Salery" worth about 5c an hr by the end. If you decide this is a challenge your willing to take on. Good Luck you'll need it.
Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 27 March 2017
A typical day at work is that you go in your shift logged in and then your day starts. You either count all the back stocks for 2 consecutive days, or make fresh food the entire day, put stocks out as the products gets consumed really fast and or by order stocks for your entire shift. I learned in this job that the whole management needs to work together so that our work flow will be fun and manageable for our entire day and not just half of the team works and the rest just stand there and make others work. The first managements that I have was really fun to worked with and I enjoyed going to work every single time but when the team got switched up everyone just doesn't cooperate as they are anymore. The culture in 7-eleven is really diverse. The hardest part of the job maybe is that our life can be actually on the line as a lot of robberies often to happen in the work environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you meet interesting people and gain some knowledge in them.
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.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 21 March 2017
The work here is way too much and you personally have to do a lot and they hardly appreciate their employees, only My Manager is the only person who takes care of her staff no matter what her superior says. Job isn't hard but not easy as well.
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.
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.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 26 February 2017
A usual day at work contained a moderate list of things to do which normally would take about 6 hours to complete on a busy day with customers, etc. The hardest part of the job is the location, you could run into sketchy people that constantly steal, or like to start drama, or there are the most friendly locals that come in everyday for their coffee. One of the most enjoyable parts of this job were listening to peoples stories and looking at their smiles, always set the mood in for the rest of the morning.
Flexible schedule, Free Soft Drinks, Free Coffee.
Being around hot food all the time and not being able to eat it.
