    Pros

    Its a well rounded company with many options to go from.

    Cons

    Employees arent trained what they need to be trained and the company doesnt make it mandatory they are trained before going out onto the floor to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    training needs to be totally done and done corrrectly because if not it will make your job harder. Each employee should be held accountable . I dont feel ab employee should make more than the manager regardless of how long they have been there.

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

    Pros

    For the most part working with good people. Being a part of the local community. Exposure to running a franchise, this means running a store like an owner.

    Cons

    7-Eleven is in the business of selling stores not keeping them within the corporation. So if you are hired at a corporate location, unless its a training center, there runs a good chance that your location will eventually be sold to a franchisee. The manager I worked with had me running all the operations while he covered the floor. It's very frustrating to be in this position and not have the title or the pay that goes with the stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't understand the hiring or screening process they must use to find their managers but they do need to be more aware of the work that is being done and who is actually doing it.

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

    Pros

    Meet people and you will get a good work experience & customer service

    Cons

    Long hours depends on who you work for the pay is good I wish they would hire different people different from a different culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    always keep an eye on the stores once you sell them and they franchisee I believe that you should keep an eye on each store cause when a person is trying to get hired and they say they're not hiring you come back in a week and they hired somebody else I think that's wrong I believe everybody deserves a chance at work no matter what race color you are.all you have to do is just give somebody a chance

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time

    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.
