    Pros

    It can be very profitable if you are in the right location. In working for a franchisee there is also a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    24 hour business can be very difficult, especially in a management role. You are always on call in case someone calls in.

    Advice to Management

    Have more communication between the different levels of management. There can be a big disconnect between the store level and corporate.

    Pros

    Owner was laid back and fair. He did not micro-manage and allowed you to manager your own self. If he felt you couldn't manage yourself, he would consult you and teach you.
    Customers were great! Busy place, kept the day short!

    Owner cared about his employees. He would counsel them if needed. He was fair and understanding. He was firm too when needed.

    Offers free soda and coffee. Does give lunch breaks.

    Flexible schedules.

    The pay was average.

    Cons

    Sometimes the owner would make poor hiring mistakes, but that is common for all managers. Some employees were difficult to work with, but owner would fire those who stole from him or abused other employees.

    Not always has busy times covered, so one employee is stuck running counter, but that is staffing issue.

    Does not offer benefits.

    Not many cons to talk about.

    Advice to Management

    Work more on training employees and hire those who can manager themselves more often.
    Think of more ways to interact with customers to stand out more from other 7-Elevens.
    Offer more variety of items to bring in to sell.
    Hire more part-timers so busy times are covered.
    Offer benefits.
