Dealing with customers. Stocking and cleaning the store and exterior. Unfortunately the store closed and that is when I lost my job. Overall a good place to work.

I do not recommend this place. Management members have no sense or knowledge.

Management even could not explain your pay statement.


Threat of firing you on every single small mistake.


Called me silly person and abused me for small mistake that even could be ignored.

You know what a convenience store does. Nothing more or less than what it usually does. Can build up relationships with the community. Great place to meet new people.

It was pretty stressful because you worked alone with which made it hard to go to the back and stock up the pop coolers or even use the bathroom as there was no one else to attend the store

Great training and training updates to keep current CSR regulations ( Cigarette sales, loto tickets sales etc.) Friendly customers with the odd drunk difficult customer late at night. Overall great job working alone all night, regular police patrols up and down road.

I loved working for the first owner of this franchise he was fair and generous, however when the second owner took over it was a very different experience they went above and beyond to make the position more difficult to handle!

Mac’s Management ask for max input from employee, and do nothing to help them and to make their working environment easier. No dealers or their employees can make enough for decent life, and owners are opening stores globally and make billions of dollars.

I had been working since 2008 in this company and working every day to make just enough money to survive there was no appreciation from anyone for working for 12 years and they just fired the whole store for stupid reason so I can recommend to work but don’t make it your retirement plan job because no respect from anyone for your hard work.

When I started at Circle K Western Canada, we were a collaborative and highly engaged team. About 4 years in our VP changed and things went down hill fast.
Our new VP was unprofessional, a total gossip, a bully, and ultimately had different standards depending on whether or not she liked you. She promoted her favourites including a Market Manager to Director of Ops that had an affair with a category assistant and covered up multiple scandals. This organization acts with zero integrity and does not value its people You will be forced to go against your own morals, treat people as commodities, and give up your personal life. Don’t be fooled by all the positive promises - they will break every single one.
