Nice place to work at. They value your work. The more potential you have the more work is lying on the platter. I acquired management qualities. Workplace culture is totally professional.

productive and good costumer

feel good to work here . very good working atmosphere .The only Circle K approved training you will receive is computer based. After you complete all the online modules, you will get hands on training that is, more often than not, rushed along and doesn’t follow company policy.

Great place to work at with lots of opportunity for career advancement

Circle K is an awesome place to work at with a relaxed environment and fun people to work with. Career advancement and growth are very important to the management staff ensuring that their employees are being challenged and are given various opportunities. Circle K is a global brand so there are tons of opportunities all over the world. I have gained extremely valuable experience and knowledge as a Real Estate professional and continue to grow in my department. Your hard work is always recognized and rewarded.

Pros

good benefits, stock plan, free merchandise samples!

Learned a lot

I learned a lot about myself while at this job. I also gained new skills which will be useful in the workplace. I also learned that it wasn't the place for me to work for the rest of my life.

Loved the customers, management wasn't great.

My hours were greatly deducted after nearly three years of working there. I couldn't sustain my life and its expenses, so I needed to leave in search of a more stable schedule, with more hours. I did enjoy working there, most times.

good first job

I had a decent first-job experience with Circle K. I learned a lot about customer service interaction and the customer service environment. A lot may have changed in the years since but I would recommend the company

not the best

Not the best company to work for, usual complaints when asked for time off. Depending on who was on and when your shift was depended on whether it was a good one or not.

Great Min. Wage Job, Stingey Hours

I have worked at Circle K for about 2 years total now, and it isn't bad. If you're looking for a part time job that is extremely easy, this is the one for you. I, however, am in need of full time hours, and that is something this company can't provide. There is also no medical plan for regular staff, and you can't touch your vacation pay until May 1st of each year, because you have to wait for their fiscal year to end. NOT a good combination. Either Irving or Circle K's upper management puts a cap on the number of hours the manager can assign any given week, and they're reprimanded if they go over. This results in a huge fight for the few hours that are available. There is no chance of advancement, and you'll never be told by a district or regional manager that you're doing a good job. I have a great store manager, and she lets you know when you do something well, but despite that her hands are tied as far as giving good workers extra hours. If you're looking for something part time, or you want to work in an environment where you can do (literally) nothing, apply and enjoy! Great place to work if you're trying to finish a book or listen to the radio, just don't go into it expecting to move up the ladder or have a consistent income.

Pros

You can read on the job, no expectations of getting things done

Cons

No medical, unstable hours, no room for advancement, bad vacation pay system.
