    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, vacation time

    Cons

    Expect a rapid turnover with staff and with the company limiting hours you have no backup so you'll have to make up the difference. Some Field Consultants are good and others abuse their power and show favoritism. Don't expect a rapid chance to promote as I have personally witnessed many highly skilled and experienced Store Managers wait years with no chance of promotion in sight.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I have been working at 7-Eleven full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and they start way above minimum wage

    Cons

    Even tho they pay great. Corporate expects way to much from their employees. Especially when u have an extremely busy store. Add more hours so we can have more than 2 people on a shift

    Advice to Management

    See above

    I worked at 7-Eleven full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent place, colleagues are OK,

    Cons

    Too much work load, corporate does weird green/red card checks on employees to see if employees are checking IDs for age restricted sales. You get a red card and written up if you don't check the ID for an age restricted sale, even if the so called corporate checker customer is above the age limit and SAFE to do a sale.
    Could not figure this one out .
    The franchisees appear so intimidated by corporate store confirm and consistency policy, that they are scared to implement rational and needed changes suggested by front line employees to increase revenue and improve customer service.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the hard working and sincere employees to work harder and increase sales, compete with upcomers like Racetrac, WaWa and Speedway please ensure that corporate or franchisees support them in their quest to lift sales and customer service.
