    I worked at 7-Eleven

    Pros

    Hours are flexible, can usually work in different shifts in order to accommodate students, which at the time I was.

    Free food: once the daily cooked food items are over the 'expired' timeline, which is by 5 a.m the next morning, employees can eat it. I had plenty of free meals.

    Friendly customers especially if you are outgoing and sociable. It is easy to make friends with regular customers.

    Cons

    Hours can be really long, especially if co-workers call in sick. Sometimes I got 13+ on the overnight shift.

    Checking IDs for smokers even if they look old as dirt is annoying especially at 'rush hours'.

    Pay is low and managers can nickel and dime you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees well, give them raises and keep them happy, they are the reason your business is making money.

    Reward employees for good work especially if they work hard and for long hours.

    The company has a decent amount of room for growth as an employee and it is not a dull job.

    I have been working at 7-Eleven full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Experience - if you can work here, you can work just about anywhere.
    You are your own boss as most of the time you are working alone in the store.
    A lot of regular customers.

    Cons

    Minimum Wage - higher pay is rare unless you stay forever and become invaluable to your boss. They don't want to work at night!
    You are expected to run the place by yourself. There's a lot to get done and if you have a bad boss, they make it even harder on you.
    A bad location means you get crazies in frequently. Expect to have something happen to you, from stealing candy to fraud to armed hold up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show you are concerned about your employees. Say thank you and notice when a job has been done well.

    I have been working at 7-Eleven full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learning experience to run a business. Great way to connect with different people.

    Cons

    Not what you know but what who you know that will get you to where you want to be. Have been promised a raise and a promotion if I go through the training. Still waiting. Now the company transfer a manager who is young and unprofessional. And I keep cleaning and fixing up the manager mess. It's seems like qualifications matter but association does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone professionally, with respect. Don't promise people of promotions and not doing it after completing all the training that was necessary

    Let your employees do what they do best and work with the stores without you looking over their shoulder. Why should we fear for our jobs?

    Corporate store manager

    Former Employee - Wv Store Manager in Cross Lanes, WV
    Former Employee - Wv Store Manager in Cross Lanes, WV

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very guest focused.decent benefits.very good staff.

    Cons

    My salary was much lower than new mgrs being hired. I was part of an acquisition salary was not raised to Corp starting wage. Upper management have no respect for their employees. A job I loved for 8 yrs turned into a job I dreaded due to harassment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fc need to stop micro managing stores. Hold mgrs accountable for their actions. Your fcs are trying to convince your mgrs to look for other employment just so they dont look bad for not knowing what they are doing. Mgrs from acquisitions are not properly trained they have 10 days to learn all new systems.
