    I have been working at Circle K

    Pros

    Easy work as long as you do what you are suppose to. I'm sure the experience varies depending on each location and each manager.

    Cons

    Low pay, no flexibility with hrs. Training was ok but you had to drive to a training center that was a good distance from your preferred location.

    Customer service rep

    I worked at Circle K

    Pros

    i enjoyed working with most of the customers, and working with some of my former coworkers.

    Cons

    overnight work is hard here. And usually you are by yourself on shifts. While you are taking care of a line full of customers you are expected to do shift change and other things at the same time.
