Good starter job. Wouldn't make it a career though.
Pros: free fountain drinks on the clock, live close by, and management
Cons: terrible pay for the working conditions, next to no benefits, and no help for every shift
A typical day at work would leave me exhausted and drained. Most of the customers are cranky and almost never gave the register operator the time of day. We were just pieces of meat for them to give money to and pump out the products they wanted. Through it all I did learn how to handle customer complaints better. The best thing about Circle K has to be the management and employees. It never is a dull day when I get the chance to work with someone. The hardest part of the job has to be the fact that I had to run the ENTIRE store by myself. Keeping the store clean, stocked, and handling customers was very tiresome and almost impossible when working by myself.
