    Pros

    working day to day providing excellent customer service. Completing computer and hands on training to move up in company. Field consultants very helpful in getting you to advance to management if that is what you are looking for. Pay increases after every certification of training. Learned to write orders and inventory as well as category manager. Co workers and management are like a family and we have fun working together and customers can see we love our job.

    Cons

    people frequently call in or quit at the last minute and you are constantly running around the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep giving employees positive encouragement and training to move forward in the company

    Current Employee - Store Manager in Rochester, NY

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

    Pros

    Visible results
    Decent Bonus structure
    Freedom
    Flexibility
    Size allows for ease of vacations and time off
    Growth is attainable and encouraged
    Training program is thorough
    User friendly set up, all in store tasks can be taught and assigned to even the lowest associate

    Cons

    Amount of daily paperwork
    Requests of upper management result in a "has to be now" mentality
    Communication from Home office to operations is spotty, mainly due to lack of concern from the human error
    Constant changes based on contracts with other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be prepared to be in store for about 9-10 hours a day if you want a succesful store. This would be until you have your store team trained and able to run without you. The more you farm out your tasks the easier your management job is. You are essentially an independent business with a district manager that helps plan and organize your assets. Once you are established the store runs itself and you are not even required to be there unless you want to be.

    I worked at 7-Eleven

    Pros

    What I liked about working here best was the personal relationships I built with the regular customers. Even after I resigned, I still see certain people out and they always ask how I am and say how much they miss me.

    Cons

    rude customers, and the dangers of working the overnight shift
