Not a very fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS12 July 2017
I disliked it, have spoke to make other people who would agree with me. Circle K is great for a summer job, or something you don't care about. Don't commit to this for the rest of your life.
Pros
discount on in store items, except cigarettes and lottery.
Cons
management is lacking in ability to do their jobs, in-store drama, etc.

Pros
Easy, friends
Cons
Rude staff members, hard to get time off

You'll never be board
Convenience Store Clerk (Former Employee) –  Sussex, NB28 April 2017
This place was pretty good to work. In the morning, you would have to go in and count lottery, tills, cigarettes, juices, pop, etc. Turn on pumps and rigger machines, lottery machines. Through out the day, you just need to keep the bathroom cleaned, sweep the floors once in a while, mop up spills and keep counter tops clean of coffee and slush spills. Wash down windows, just keep things clean. Keep tills balanced. ID people coming in for tobacco products. Closing up is just making sure pumps are closed down, sweep, mop, garbage, close down rigger, lottery, debit machines. Count cigarettes. Lock up. Management wasn't too bad. I mean, the assistant manager at the time was much easier to deal with then the manager. But things always stayed on track. The people who came and went were always good to work with. But then again, being a people person helps in every job. The hardest part of the job, just like everyone, is the rude customers who cant be patient with say a new employee, or someone who can't quite get that lottery machine yet. And also working alone at night. The best part was always the regular customers. That seriously was my favorite part.
Pros
Talking to the regulars
Cons
Closing at night
