fun interaction with customers
Salesperson/Assistant Mgr (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – April 10, 2014
7-11 provided a good place to come out of your shell. Meeting all different kinds of people, both friendly or just here for that one thing, provided a broad spectrum of different interactions. Money handling was key, as well as the use of the pos system, as well as keeping an eye out for someone who might try to get something for free. The staff generally work well together, and you would come to rely on them to back you up in a possibly difficult situation. sometimes if someone was sick or just didn't show up, the extended hours would make the day a bit hard, but usually there was another staff member who would be willing to fill in.
In the end though it was still all about getting the customers what they wanted, and if we did our jobs well, we were praised and felt good about how we had contributed.
free slurpees, and some write off hot food, (at the time)
