Dont waste your time

Avoid working here. Terrible company. They don't care about you. No benefits and poor pay. Youre lucky if you meet some cool coworkers and that is the only bonus of the job. Not flexible with schedule either and youre considered part time no matter how much you work which means your hours can get cut at any second. Went from 30 hours a week to 15 hours because it wasn't "busy" enough. No job security. Company won't even accommodate doctors notes. Youre expected to push sales on customers with no excuses and if you don't meet sales goals, you get written up.

Pros

Some nice coworkers

Cons

Poor pay, no benefits, terrible scheduling, long hours on your feet, no paid breaks, etc

Patience and understanding

This job requires patience and understanding, you will have customers that seem to take forever and others that seem like they are running extremely late. After a while you get to know your regulars and seem to remember the small things like what cigarettes they are going to purchase before the even ask . Might not seem like a big deal to you but does make a difference for them.

Pros

Job advancement

Cons

No official break always doing something

It's your co-workers that make or break this job

I absolutely loved my Circle K family, I think I had the best manager this company had to offer. The job could be stressful, especially if you were on a shift where you worked alone. Due to staffing issues we were all worked to the point of insanity at least once, but we really had eachother to at least vent it out. This job takes much more of a toll than one would think, and with very little pay but our manager really made sure we were praised and tried his absolute best to keep his staff sane.

Pros

Fantastic coworkers and manager, paid on a weekly basis

Cons

Long hours, Lack of Breaks, Rude Customers, High Risk of Theft

It was alright.

Worked there for a few years, it was hard because not a lot of people took it seriously, so you’d end up working more than you wanted too. Definitely was hard to have a life outside of work. High paced environment when we had busses, unsure what it is like now

Its decent but not great

Circle K is somewhat easy work but can be long hours. It's usually minimum wage which honestly is not enough for the average person to survive on. Do it if you have no other option.

It's a beginning

Not every job is a dead end. With circlek you can either move forward or be at a stand still. Give 110% if you want to show who you are and what you can bring as a team player. I started as overnight CSR, went to supervisor, then manager. Eventually I owned my own store. Even my staff went places. Working for this company can also help you advance into your goals by teaching you how to work in a fast pace environment and a chance to bank money towards your schooling or dreams.

Great job but sometimes too many people

It was great, the people were really friendly and the environment was pretty nice, sometimes it would be stressful owing to the gas station part and you would have to deal with angry customers who do not read when it is pointed it is a prepaid pump... although, you learn how to deal with people.

it was good working there

it is good to work out there and it was challenging at first but I like working there. i mostly did night shifts and it was slow at night so I can do all the work of my own nicely whenever I liked for eg filling the stuffs.

No team poor management

Co Worker was bullied by both bosses! Poor management and the bosses always took part in talking poorly and making fun of the employees! Miserable co workers Ignorant and non compassionate. Gossip groups! Clicks. Bullying constantly. The bosses would even take the cashiers gift cards that they would win from mystery shoppers or contests! I found them in the safe one day. The workers knew but couldn’t say anything. Worse place and people I’ve ever met.

Pros

None

Cons

You work harder than a grave digger for no money or acknowledgement

It is great meeting new people and helping them. There is a lot to learn in here. Work is not too hard but being bold is necessary at this kind of places.

Circle K

Enjoy working for Circle K, high stress though, low pay, plenty of job security and room for advancement. Would definitely recommend for someone looking to get experience in management.
