A typical retail establishment wherein employees are neglected in favor of profits.
7-Eleven is, ultimately, a corporation. It cares more about its bottom line increasing than about providing living wages for its employees, a vast majority of whom are stuck with part time hours that fluctuate wildly.
My particular store is seasonal, so when summer ends, the corporate office cuts our hours nearly in half, and many of my coworkers and I are forced to either leave the company, thereby making advancement here a moot point, or take second or side jobs to make ends meet.
It is what it is; a convenience store. But it's also a megacompany operating in multiple countries, and so has no reason to attempt to provide for their employees. I would not recommend working here if you are attempting to make it into a career, as advancement is often pushed back repeatedly and only dangled in front of your nose like a carrot to encourage competitive behavior among coworkers and corporate brown-nosing.
My management team are ineffective at best and at worst, manipulative and lazy. There is little reason for praise in our store, as morale is essentially in the negative because of competition, backstabbing, and an overall feeling that an axe is permanently over our necks, and if hours get cut too much further, someone will get it.
