My first few months at circle k was productive and wll organized. I started there at night from 3-11 pm and worked solely on my own. I was responsible for the register, stocking the cooler, taking out the trash, cleaning the restrooms, cleaning gas pumps, sweeping, mopping and cleaning the deli fryer. After several months of being there I was asked – more... to start training to as an Assistant Manager as the current Assistant was being promoted to a different store as Store Manager. In the following few months beto learn how to complete the daily paperwork, make the work schedules, change gas prices, read the clerks register graph to track if the store was losing money watch the cameras for suspicious activty, bank drops, filling the ATM with cash, and other managing duties. I learned how to work with Outlook for e-mailing, Spreadsheets from Excel, Access, and how to print reports for the prevous business day. The hardest part was having to work midnights when no one else could do it and having to fire someone. The most enjoyable part was meeting and getting to talk to different people everyday. – less
Good company to work for and great people to work with.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Greenfield, IN – November 11, 2013
Pros: free coffee and fountain drinks while you are on duty
Cons: short breaks, not enough help when you need it
Making sure that the customers are taken care of and maintaining a clean work environment. I learned that no matter how bad of a day the customer is having, just a simple smile and a great greeting will make their day better. My co-workers are outstanding people. They made coming into work fun and easy. The hardest part of the job was trying to make – more... sure all the work is done and done right when are having to work with people that doesn't really care about their job. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people, developing a good relation with them and just the people I worked with. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), West Monroe, LA – November 8, 2013
Pros: management can work around a busy schedule.
Cons: management thinks it is a burdon to work around a busy schedule.
A typical day at Circle K is mostly running a cash register, stocking cigarettes, and replenishing drink cups. I learned mostly proper ways to deal with rude people and people of all races, shapes, and ages can be just as nice or rude as the next person. The co-workers at this particular Circle K were nice until you were actually in the company. After – more... about two weeks there were only two people out of the staff that weren't talking about you or causing drama behind your back. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude people. And the most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom giving. – less

CSR (Current Employee), concord, nc – November 6, 2013
This job is good for people looking for something to do before finding a career. You do not move up as fast as you would like and the management is sometimes only there to make a paycheck. If I had a choice I would not work here.
Crew (Former Employee), Akron Oh – November 4, 2013
Pros: quarterly raises
Cons: mean disrespectful custmers
Everyday I worked I would get hassled by costumers that were either drunk or crazy. I did not learn anything from this company. The boss was nice and comfortable to be around. The co-workers was nice all of them were cool people. The hardest part was dealing with drunk people. Most enjoyable part was that since I worked 3rd shift I didnt have to deal – more... with to much nonsense. – less

Cashier (Current Employee), Columbus, GA – October 26, 2013
Pros: interacting with people on a daily basis
Cons: no breaks
My job is a wonderful job it just doesn't have the necessary opportunities for growth and advancement. On a typical day I usually have about 100-150 customers handling cash and debit transactions. We work anywhere from 6 to 10 hour shifts without breaks and that is the hardest part of my job, standing for that amount of time without breaks.
