The most important piece of information you need to know is if your store is corporate or franchise. Most are franchise which means the store owners set the wages, hours, and benefits. These can range wildly from store to store. In contrast to some sad stories I see before me, I've worked at my 711 for two years now and receive 12.50 an hour on night shift duty with a very stable 40 hour a week schedule working four nights a week. This is a very good case of what can happen and is by no means the norm. Talk to the owner and other coworkers there to see what they make and you might have a baseline.

Depends on your store. Typical 18 hour stores ( meaning they are only open from 6 AM to midnight ) you would go in at 530 to get things started an then open to he public at 6. Shift change for the entire 1st would be 4pm, typically the person who came in at 530 would leave at 130. 6am goes out at 2 an a manager may work 2 hours alone or a swing shift person would be in. 2nd shift goes from 4 to midnight, or a little later if a delivery came in late. If the store accepts night deliveries when it is closed someone may be hired for just that.

24 hour stores typically go 7am to 3pm then 3pm to 11 pm. Overnight would be 11pm to 7am. At least in my experience.

Variations are usually within an hour either way.

Unfair scheduling, end shift 11pm due back at 7am only when management wants day help. Or back at 5pm after working an overnight. New hires take your hours and you lose some hours just to help their budget. Franchise owners take all daytime hours working themselves. Shifts are 5-11pm or 11pm to 7am.
