Overworked, over stressed, and underpaid
Sales Asssociate (Former Employee), Lakeland, FLOctober 30, 2014
Pros: good place to learn convenience store basics, great customers, teaches you to be independent, free soda if you have your own cup
Cons: unsafe atmosphere at times, no breaks, minimum wage, only person on shift
I felt as if my time at Circle K was good for a few things, it taught me the basics of convenience store work, as well as it helped me develop speed to accomplish tasks. The pay was minimum wage and at times I felt as if I was being paid bare minimum and over worked for nothing. Management was too over stressed to care usually and never appreciated – more... how hard I worked. a typical day would include a lot of customer service interaction. It would include a lot of cleaning as well as inventory replenishment. It is not difficult work at all, and I enjoyed the relationships that I made with regular customers. Another thing is that most of the time you are the only one on shift and when I worked night shifts I felt unsafe. I once told my district manager that I felt unsafe at nights because they decided to remove the other person that was on shift with me in order to save money. I was told that if a robbery occurred than I would get more help at nights. Needless to say, I was in an area that had been robbed several times before. – less

Lead Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Deltona, FLOctober 30, 2014
You get to meet so many interesting people. It made the nights go by fast. Always busy. Working nights, You have to make sure everything is ready for first shift. You can not fool around.. You are working by yourself. No one is there to help you.

Fun and wonderful experience.
Cashier/Clerk (Former Employee), North Augusta, SCOctober 27, 2014
Pros: discounts on food and free fountain drinks
Cons: no lunch breaks
I ran cash register and assisted customers to make sure they were taken care of in a timely
manner. I ran lottery machine as well as money order machine. I also made sure cooler and merchandise was stocked for next shift. At the end of the shift we counted down register and safe and printed reports for our shift.
I truly enjoyed working for Circke K. – more... I have learned a lot since working with this company. The managers and employees are more than co-workers, they are family. We try to be there for each other, whether it is work or non work related. The best part of my job is interacting with other people and making sure that the customers are happy – less

Fast paced working environment and being to build relationships with customers
Multi Store Manager (Current Employee), Glendale, AZOctober 24, 2014
Pros: working with great employees and customer relations
Cons: no personal life or time with family
From early in the morning until late in the afternoon consistently busy throughout the day. I have learned a lot about marketing and P&L. Budgeting hours and payroll to meet company expectations. Working with a great team of associates that make the store what it is and that I could not do it without them. The hardest part of the job was not being able – more... to have anytime with my family. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with customers and building relations with each one of them. – less

Would not suggest working for this company.
CSR/Cashier (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVOctober 23, 2014
Cons: no breaks, no free anything
You will be working for 8 hours with no breaks.
The managers have no say in what goes on at the stores because of the market manager.
Some of the workers are very nice but others are not.
I was happy when I finally left this company because it is a very hard and stressful job.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLOctober 23, 2014
Pros: interaction with customers
Cons: minimum wage compensation
I worked with Circle K for two years before relocated and switching jobs. Through my tenure with the company I learned a lot about customers service and being able to continually provide excellent service and products that my customers need. I worked really hard to go from cashier to the assistant management position but I felt that my work ethic was – more... not appreciated and that my compensation did not reflect the level of work I did. – less
