    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

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager Training Program in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at 7-Eleven part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck. Training Program for quick advancement. No background check. (Franchise) I assumed since I had all food industry experience with McDonalds their #1 competitor I got the job. I believe that they wanted me to gain experience in the convenience store industry but if I prove my worth and experience I will advance into management within six months..

    Cons

    Long hiring process. Took six weeks for sales associate position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. I'm glad they gave me a chance to get my foot in the door. I'll be in management in 6 months after I get my TABC and Certified Sales Associate certifications to become a manager.

    I have been working at 7-Eleven full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free drinks, meet great people, company car, phone, credit card. Interaction with some great franchisees that know the business after running their store for 20+ years

    Cons

    No formal training program, you have to ask questions about everything to learn. "Learning on the Run" isn't the best way to train someone and still held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't hold employees accountable for things their never told. "You should've asked " is not the response you give for things you never trained employees on.
