Decent stepping stone job
Sandwich Artist/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Penticton, BC21 June 2018
It was an okay place to work, but management wasn't the greatest. I quit when the manager refused to let me switch from nights to days when another employee on days had quit.
Pros
Free drinks on shift
Cons
Manager wanting to cut corners with safety

Poor management but fun job
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 June 2018
Dynamic environment that would otherwise being a fun place to work. Meeting people and forming bonds with regulars. However, management is poor with company not having any specific chart or career growth path . Career progress is dependent on who you know or can brown nose. Overall , not a good place to work except you are desperate
Pros
Free drinks
Cons
Poor management

Poor Management
Certified Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 June 2018
Brilliant work benefit packages. However, I have worked in this company with all respect integrity and hardwork and got no recognition from the Store Manager at all. There is a poor management in place. I hope the Management Changes for the better as time goes on.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Cold Lake, AB10 June 2018
7-11 has always been good to me. There was never a time that I walked in there and was not greeted with a friendly hello. The staff is so pleasant and they have a great slurpee variety.

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 June 2018
Overall good experience, it tends to really depend on the manager. Pay is also a bit low and raises are RARE. Once you get to know your regulars and take care of them, they'll take care of you.

A good place to start your career if you are looking for a career in retail, work can get intense during summers, pretty steady through out the year. You need to brown nose your immediate supervisors to go up
Pros
Good for Freshers, Newcomers in Canada, People looking for survival jobs
Cons
No real growth opportunities, Low Wages, Benefits need to be applied for within 2 months or you need to wait 2 years

Dysfunctional upper management ruins otherwise decent environment
Store Leader (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK28 May 2018
The job is basically standard fare for convenience/retail/QSR, but there is no stability at upper levels and they really do expect their managers to do it all. Staff are generally well supported until they have the manager title, at which point everyone from your field consultant up couldn't really care less about what it takes from you personally to succeed as long as you're succeeding. They are more than happy to let you work for 3 months straight with no days off and putting in 70+ hours a week if it makes them money.
Pros
The pay/benefits and the culture (on paper)
Cons
Lack of care for management's needs

Retail environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 May 2018
Very low job security and virtually no worker benefits for part time workers. Very little room for further growth in the company, work is expected to be done in unrealistic time, No food is allowed at the front, and since breaks are not paid you are actively encouraged to skip them, and if you do take 10 minutes to eat, its as if you've murdered someone.
