    I have been working at Circle K full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling
    Available hours
    Easy job
    Opportunities to advance to store management
    Insurance offered for part-time workers

    Cons

    Pay is commensurate with the ease of the job
    Potentially hostile customers
    High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Bump the CSR wages up a little. I get that we're gas station clerks, but many of us are working full-time hours or close to it and don't make enough to pay the bills. There are stores that are critically short-staffed and a better wage could improve the turnover rate.
