Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – November 12, 2013
Coffee and food for customers is probably the number one in the store. At night time after 8 pm it dies down and it is very slow, probably about 6 people per 30 min. Management is flexiable when associates need a few days off or a month off, he has other associates fill that persons spot. Co-workers work well with each other, no complaints there. Hardest part of the job is to deal with rude and snotty customers that always think that "us" associates don't know how to do our job or the price is wrong on the shelf, where we got new tags for all the products that have the price, and the name of the product so customers won't complain. No really enjoyable part of the job.
eat when we can
it is a franchise store so we lost our benefits. Thankfully I have benefits on my husbands insurance
Associate (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – June 19, 2018
The employment was not encouraging. My hours were cut five times before I quit working for 7-11, and another person was being trained for my job. I did not like walking to work in the rain only to work in the cooler for the next 2 hours where I would catch a cold so I would call in sick
I got along with everyone there we were like a big family. Everybody was willing to help each other out when needed. All the customers would say they loved how we can joke around with each other but be professional when it was time. Some days were rough but we worked together as a team and made it through the day. Even though I still no longer work there I still keep in touch and go see them.

Great job to be at, it taught me about consistency, patience, how to interact with customers, I learned so much and respect the people who own the store because there is so much work that goes into being apart of the 7 eleven family
I would work At seven Eleven if give another opportunity

I have worked for the company for at least 11 years, in different locations and cities. I would work for the company again if given the chance. I enjoy answering questions and helping people with their needs,
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – June 18, 2018
I love my job, but it is constant hard work and I am getting older and don't really want to work that hard every day. I am a perfectionist to some degree so I take great pride in making my store look good. The hardest part is having to do others work because they didn't get it done for some reason and dealing with shoplifters.

I enjoyed working at seven eleven. Positive work environment. The store manager was a pleasure to work for. I learned how to keep track of inventory. The do's and don'ts of the job. The interaction I had with the customers were always pleasant. It was a great experience to work there.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – June 18, 2018
7-Eleven was a learning experience for me. I pushed myself to meet deadlines with ordering product and training new employees like I never had before. On top of supervising and correcting others' mistakes, I took care of customers while maintaining a positive relationship with our regular customer base. I accounted for monetary losses and helped prevent thousands of dollars more while I was there. I also learned how to properly motivate and appreciate my staff while working as a fully functional team.
Hands on learning, experience managing cash flow and employees
You have to be on your feet all day to run the store smoothly.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – June 18, 2018
It’s a fast pace working environment. Multi tasking is a must. You have to be a team player to run the store smoothly. As a manager you have to handle ordering, making store deposits, be able to log in work orders etc.
Loss Prevention Specialist (Former Employee) – Willow Grove, PA – June 17, 2018
I started my career at 7-Eleven. 7-Eleven strived to see their employees succeed and would afford all the training necessary for employees to achieve their goals. They provided an excellent work environment, incentives and benefits
Cashier (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – June 17, 2018
i could not get enough of the customers and how friendly they where and how the manager would check up on you during your shift and the end of your shift you had to count your draw down and how you have to count the lottery tickets to see how many you sold
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Antioch, CA – June 16, 2018
7eleven could easily be a welcoming company. The issue with most franchise stores, the management has no connection with their customers. If the employee is from the area, the customers are more willing to come in because they know they will be welcomed. When the employees are not from the area or decide to be rude to customers, nothing gets solved and the growth of the company ends up lacking. Stability is the key and my old place of work has none. From workers not doing their tasks to walking out on shifts. From Swing triples in two days to getting moved from a store 10 mins from your house to a 35 min drive. Having to drop the car back off at 4 am with no accommodation to the fact and being schedule til 5 am. Running entire deliveries solo because both night shift guys called off sick. Having to come in on your day off, cause a coworker is alone with a huge delivery and someone no showed. Only because you are 10 mins away and they called you. Having to deal with customers saying racist comments about staff with a smile on your face and a " Have a nice day."
Free drinks. Graveyard Shift.
Lack of presence from owner. Lack of authority from management.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 15, 2018
When I first began to work at the job, I loved it. It's not very complicated work. You prepare food, and coffee (which they teach you how to do) and occasionally have to work with machines depending on how much you know. You also clean the store up of course,write off expired products and receive shipments. I spent a lot of time on the register. I was able to interact with all kinds of customers from all types of backgrounds and improve my social skills while being myself which was most fulfilling and enjoyable. Eventually the store came under new management and they reduced me to 8 hours a week with little communication as to why or who the manager was.. It can be unorganized and people call out and schedules get mixed up .. so just do your job , but beware .. it may not be a long term type of job, but the pay is weekly.
