flexible job with room for advancement
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Camrose, ABJune 24, 2014
Pros: flexible shifts, medical benefits
Cons: open 24 hrs 365 days a year so must work christmas day as it is a very busy day
When fully staffed and things are going smoothly very flexible hours to accommodate the staff. There is plenty of room for advancement for employees willing to learn and many aspects to the job to keep – more... from being bored at work.
Most of the staff are very flexible and helpful. They try their best to be helpful and put new employees at ease with a willingness to answer any questions. For the most part cheery staff who make a fun yet productive work day. The customers are incredible.
The hardest part of the job is covering for the less reliable employees which the company is working on – less

A Great job
Senior Certified Sales Associate (Former Employee), Oliver, BCMay 29, 2014
Overal just a great place to work for. The divercity that you encounter from working day to day in this industry really helps you in development for future jobs. These ways may not be easy to see prior to working their but when looking at other jobs and their requirements later on in life, one can look back and think "I did that" or something like that at least.

I recommend it

Pros: public interaction

A great job to interact with everyday people. You get trained very well and still learn more on a daily basis. Management includes a manager and assistant manager on staff. You are required to clean and – more... maintain the store and outsed premeises. Stock cooler, shelves and keep the hot foods rotating on proper times. Bake cookies and recieve pastry orders. You are basically doing the work of 4 people at minimum wage. – less

fast -paced environment with lots of fun and lots of work
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBMarch 24, 2014
our everyday routine at 7-Eleven were to clean the store, do the restocking of the shelves, arranging the displays, doing inventory check, attending to the costumers in need, tending the register. I learned – more... a lot of stuffs there, especially the use of the register. we always work on a 2 man cell. it was just me and the shift captain. the captain taught me many things about the graveyard shift, cautions and the like. the hardest part of the job is being unable to do anything about the shoplifters but being aware of what they took, and list it down. its a company policy to not to try and catch them. the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting different kinds of people, the short talks we have actually makes us learn about a lot of stuffs. – less

working at 7-eleven was interasting and fun as you got to deal with the public alot. You lurnt to deal with cash, cashout, cook, make sandwiches, do ordering for the store and i got to help train new staff. – more... The management was great and helpful when you had to ask about different things that where new.
The hardest part of the job was working late night by yourself at times because someone called in sick and there was no one to cover for them.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the different things that you could earn from different compations of who could sale the most slurpees or something along that line – less

Pros: great dental and medical benifits.
Cons: unexpected hours

I continued all the way to Certified Assistant Manager with in two years of my start date. If you want to move up, there is always an opportunity waiting for you.

Concerning lack of proper training
Cashier (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: credit line between paychecks, good hours.
Cons: lack of training.
I learned how to cash out a til using a basic worksheet and count of tobacco products and lottery.

When being trained to count stock i was always unsure of what to do and was never given and straight direction from management.

Working with others was nice however it seemed as though no one was really happy to be there.
