    Pros

    A great place to work if you are motivated to succeed, but you must be determined and work hard. Not the place if you can not deal with diversity.

    Cons

    Work-life can be hard at the beginning. Corporate management can overlook store level employee needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more training opportunities for motivated employees. Look within the company before seeking outside for more advanced positions.

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers and customers are very friendly. You get a flexible hours. The harder you work, the more hours you can earn.

    Cons

    The managers can be a little annoying once in awhile. They will assign you lots of works and expect you to get it done by the end of the shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As long as you on time and work hard, you good to go.

    The new uniform policy. I've been there 5 years, I was hired in with tattoos and with in the lest few weeks have been covering them up, due to the new uniforms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loose the uniform pants and tattoo coverings. You say you want individuals then change everything so we are all the same.

    I have been working at 7-Eleven part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The manager was very flexible with my school schedule and allowed me to set my own days. Once we got a new manager we had an excellent team and enjoyed working with each other. Initial job training consists of being paid to watch a series of videos and answer simple multiple-choice questions. The job is fairly laid-back and stress-free. It was an excellent job to make some extra money while attending the nearby college.

    Cons

    The original manager was very inconsistent. Nobody received the same base salary even though we all performed the exact same duties. The store atmosphere can vary dramatically depending on who is in charge. Once you are hired you are stuck with the same base wage and it cannot be changed.
