    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at 7-Eleven.

    Interview Details

    HR responded rather quickly to my application. I had 2 phone interviews and one in person interview. The expectations were set up front. Typical retail type interview questions.They encourage you to really think about if you want to work in a business that is operated 24/7.

    Interview Questions
    • The "what would you do?" type questions were difficult because they are not true representations of your past experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Make sure you define your salary expectations on your application upfront. There is little opportunity to negotiate after the fact.

    Field Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lombard, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lombard, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at 7-Eleven in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process took over 6 weeks. I was called by an HR recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The next day I had my interview and I was emailed a link to an assessment questionair and an application which I completed. 2 weeks later I interviewed with an HR in Lombard and 2 weeks later I interviewed with a panel consisting of 3 market managers. I must say that Tyrone, Adam and the Market managers were very pleasent and profossional. Just under 2 weeks of my interview with The Market manager I was informed that I was advancing to the next step which was a ride a long with a FC. She was great. I waited almost 2 weeks for a word on the next step. The leadership opted for another candidate. I really wanted and still want that job because I thought it was challanging and would have allowed me to continue with my career. No hard feelings. You win some and you lose some. Hope they will call me one day (soon hopefully) with a job offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at 7-Eleven in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position in Dallas TX about 7 days ago online. When the recruiter received the application we had set up a phone interview over the phone. When the phone interview took place, we discussed managerial competencies, situations, and work experience.

    From that step he had set up an interview with the market manager which was about 5 days later. That interview consisted of managerial strengths and competencies also. We discussed a daily life in 7 eleven stores and the training expectations which where broken down by category.

    Interview Questions
    • Difficult questions only come with no experience in the retail world. Every question has it's own answers, because it's happened to all of us as leaders to clerks.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Get the research of the salary before negotiating. Plus it's all in the experience that a manager or a clerk does have.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at 7-Eleven in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was told to come in 2 days after submitting my application. At the time of the interview my application had been misplaced by staff so I had to fill out a new one. Ordinary questions were asked "Tell me about yourself", "Why should you work here", "Are you available at all times". The interviewer was kind and it seemed like everything went well but I never got a call back. Oh well.
