Cashier (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – November 20, 2018
Working at 711 isn't a hard job but it also isn't easy. As long as you do everything right at a good pace you'll be good, customers can be difficult to deal with but working there more you get the hang of it.
I enjoyed my time there, and my coworkers were nice people
CONVENIENCE STORE CLERK (Former Employee) – Medford, OR – November 20, 2018
I worked there for more then a few months, i was employed at the phoenix Oregon location wile it got shut down and had to be relocated to a shadier location. My coworkers and assistant managers where positive and we together we created a fun working environment that made it enjoyable to come to work. Its a shame i had to move thou, and couldn't get relocated fast enough.
wasn't a big fan, worked for a month and 3 weeks.. the customers are very rude.. also the co workers often never show up for work.. plenty night i would work and have to run the store by myself , a typical day would be me going to work , working my whole shift and then leaving.. i was never the type to act out in public or at the job so i do my best to just follow instruction and use the right procedures until my job is finished.

7/11 operates much like any other store that sells multiple items with a small staff. The difference I find here, besides the fact that it is open 24hrs, is that there is no focus on the employees. Non in their education of job related tasks, outside the basics. It is a learn as you go process that doesn't account the just what employees should actually know before they begin.
A typical day involves reviewing and responding to emails, documenting existing applications / processes / projects, keeping the team informed of task assignments, and maintaining a work / life balance.
Cashier and Customer Service (Current Employee) – Peabody, MA – November 18, 2018
Management needed help but it was a good place . My customers were awesome. The workers were always calling out... deliveries were a nightmare esp when I’m alone . Boss was cheap and didn’t want another person on
The work is hard and the hours can be tough but you get to meet the people that live in your neighborhood. I have met many friends from working at 7-Eleven and used it to springboard into better jobs elsewhere in the community.
Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Cedar Park, TX – November 16, 2018
Typical day: 8 hrs. on your feet, fast paced work, no breaks including no lunch break. What I learned: No matter how good you perform your job, you will not be financially rewarded with raises after you reach the pay cap for your position. Management: Inconsistant, at best. Frequent management changes due to buying and selling of franchised stores. Things (benefits, raises, consistant management, etc.) were MUCH better before the company started franchising operations. Workplace culture: Eclectic, depending on who is working on any given day. Hardest part of job: Being on your feet all day with no breaks. Most enjoyable part of job: Interaction with the customers, especially the "regulars".
Dealing with the public and meeting new people
No benefits, no raises, no breaks, inconsistant management
keeping a clean, safe environment for patrons, ringing customer purchases using electronic cash registers, and giving correct change. - forecasting, ordering, and stocking merchandise throughout the store.
Good job if you are single, or do NOT have younger children.
Management (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 15, 2018
While the job pays very well, it also demands full control of your life. Especially if you are management, you are always on call. Middle of the night, all hour of the day, days off aren't guaranteed. I remember 18 day stretches with no days off at one point. They are strict as well. I never called in but I've seen them let people go for their second call in.
Really if you are determined you can move up quite quickly. They pay great. If you work hard and don't have small kids or a busy life outside of work, this is a job for you.

I definitely recommend this place to work at. They are very flexible with your schedule and understand that you have a life outside of work. They help in any trading you would need and make sure that you have all the tools available for you.
