Cashier (Former Employee), El Paso, TX – May 30, 2013
My daily duties at 7-11 consisted of being a cashier, re-stocking, cleaning and delivering excellent customer service. Management taught me how to be patient and overcome difficult customers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was a short commute.
cashier/assistant manager (Former Employee), Hermiston, OR – May 19, 2013
Pros: family oriented environment, friendly staff
Cons: schedules were difficult to cover at times
Typical day would be fast paced and full of things to do. I learned many new skills including assisting with inventory and audits, daily paperwork and deposits. I was able to take advantage of training classes in Seattle to expand my knowledge. Management was very helpfu and supported all of the employees in any decision. They were very family oriented – more... as well. I enjoyed working with all of my co-workers and had fun every day I was working. The hardest part of the job was being able to balance everday with the daily paperwork and inventories. The most enjoyable part of the job was that everyone was there for each other. We all helped each other when we needed it. – less
Associate (Former Employee), Midland, TX – May 18, 2013
Was a great place to work, made new friends, and made a mistake that had gotten myself fired. Everything in the store was done by the books, and it helped to make sure that everything ran smoothly, and everyone could still enjoy work.

Cashier (Former Employee), West Chester, PA – May 12, 2013
Cons: no free lunch, no employee discount
It was a fun place to work but managment was a bit slow. Typical day was ringing up customers, cleaning, and stocking. I leartned how to use PA lottery machines. Co workers were all very friendly and still hangout with most of them even after we were laid off. There were no hard parts of the job. The most enjoyable were my Co-Workers.
Cashier (Former Employee), North Ogden, UT – May 10, 2013
Pros: customer interaction
Cons: no health insurance was available.
A typical day at 7-11 included a lot of customer interaction with multiple tasks to complete. I learned how to handle customers effectively and along with completing my tasks on time. Management was always willing to work with my schedule while I was attending college. My co-workers and customers made my day enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was – more... balancing customer service and completing my tasks in a timely manner. – less
Great place to work if you don't have goals for yourself.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Eugene, OR – May 9, 2013
Pros: weekly paychecks, direct deposit
Cons: inconsistent scheduling, lack of management, lack of hours, doesn't care about employees
I was hired to work here after my friend and roommate got hired and referred me to the owner of the store. This owner owns and operates 3 stores in the area and although he works very hard, he isn't able to manage the stores very well. Each store desperately needs an actual manager as well as sales associates because there is too much ordering and other – more... management tasks to be done each day and many days when I would arrive, things that should have been done earlier in the day weren't because the other sales associate would be trying to do all the ordering and run the store alone. I learned a lot about how to run a convenience store and got to know a lot of the customers on a personal level as they came in multiple times a day. The management overall was terrible but a few of my co-workers were great and I learned a lot from them. Some were very unfriendly and unhelpful but a few really helped me out a lot. A typical day would have me come in in the afternoon, stock all the cups, lids, and condiments, and then stock the cooler. After that, I would assist with cleaning the store, managing the cash registers, managing the grill/hot food, and changing shift. I was usually only scheduled for 2-4 hours per day, which is eventually why I stopped working there..not enough hours. All in all, I learned a lot and I also learned that if you want to make something of yourself, don't work here. There are no opportunities for advancement or a raise. It's a great place to start out for a first job or if you don't have an education past high school but there are definitely better places to work. – less
Great place to work and socialize with a vast array of people
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Rockledge, FL – May 9, 2013
Pros: easy work and not stressful
Cons: not many breaks and a lot of continuous standing
I enjoyed my time at 7 Eleven. It was a great place to work and socialize with various people and create a relationship with the regulars. The work tasks were not hard to complete. Keeping a clean and organized work environment was one of my main goals. My favorite part about this job was being able to talk to all the customers that came in.
Cashier (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CA – May 8, 2013
Pros: friendly staff; fair treatment
Cons: i didn't get to work here long enough.
I would begin by front facing the store and checking the coffee freshness; making new coffee if needed. I would handle customer transactions from candy bars to gift cards and make food when ordered. I learned a lot about how the store was organized and how to order and check-in merchandise. The management was very willing to work with my schedule fairly – more... and trusted my abilities in so much as they wanted to train me to manage the store within six months. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful and helped me acclimate to the environment with ease. I am very adaptable. The hardest part was sitting through hours of training videos but it was worth the wait. What I enjoyed most was the trust and extra responsibility placed on me because I always enjoy a challenge. – less
