    If you are corporate employee they can sell your store. micro managed.

    expectations can be unrealistic on a store by store basis. expected to sell more food which is good, but goals are sometimes beyond reach.

    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.

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You had insurance, paid holidays, and opportunity for advancement. I worked overnight so I was pretty busy til about 1 am. Calm til 4am then you'd have all the early morning coffee drinkers.

    Cons

    It was hard to get time off on 3rd shift because no one else wanted to work it. We did all the cleaning on overnight so if someone came in and wanted something cooked, they might have to wait a bit. Usually they were not very patient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did enjoy my time there. It wasn't hard to up a level and get a small raise.
