I have been working at 7-Eleven part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay, Benefits, that's all I've got.

Cons

Lack of training, Vary little work life balance.

Advice to Management

If your people bust their butts 5 out of 7 days of the week. Try to over look some of the little things so they can get a physical and mental rest.

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the manager the schedules pretty flexible, promotions can happen, but probably won't. Minimum wage starting, but what do you expect at a gas station.

    Cons

    When the store is busy and you are by yourself customers can be very rude depending on the area. Corporate people set unrealistic goals for everything around the store. If you are good at ignoring rude people in general you should be fine.

    Advice to Management

    All I can say is, put two people on at all times. Working alone is probably the worst part of it and decreases morale more than anything else.

    Since Joe DePinto took over as chairman of 7-Eleven, almost all franchisees make less money.

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The customers are great. Most Field Consultants really try, but are hampered by senior management.

    Cons

    The pay for franchisees are low and it only gets worst every year that you stay in the business. Sales since Joe DePinto took over have have stayed relatively flat (inflation adjusted) while expenses including labor have gone through the roof. Seattle has just passed a minimum wage at $15 an hour. We should see a lot of franchisees losing their stores in Seattle over the next several years. Remember, a lot of these stores are the life savings of the owners.

    Advice to Management

    Joe DePinto has been the worst nightmare for franchisees since he has taken over. He hires ex-military yes man so that the only opinion that counts is his. If you disagree with him you are unfaithful to the company and will be fired. There has been close to 100% turnover of field personal and those that are still there hate the job. Any franchisee that has been in the system more than 2 years hates 7-Eleven and their job. My advice to Joe DePinto is to take Servant Leadership courses and really implement it instead of faking it.
