firstly, getting hired is a pain if you don't know someone on the inside. this job is really the most undesirable place I have ever worked. lots of laborious work for minimum wage, no breaks, no lunch break, no matter how long your shift. no room for advancement in the company unless someone quits/is fired. management was pretty friendly

Depends on what one you work for, some are franchise some are corporate. Corporate stores seems to pay better and have more benefits for employees. Overall an okay job, not something to make a career out of.

7 - Eleven is a transitional place to work for most people, or in some cases simply a "high turnover" industry, and this shows in the employees. You may absolutely adore your coworker as a person, and thus be able to get through a shift with no qualms and actually get things done. On the other hand you could end up working with someone who is vindictive and will stick you with every freaking customer that walks through the door while they make every excuse to not be near their register. Others may just stand at the register and take their sweet time with each customer so that they have less obligations during their shift. You never know, and 7- Eleven does not offer competitive compensation or benefits, so they really can not be as picky about their hirees as other companies. With that in mind, the particular location I worked in had great owners who spent all of their time managing the three locations they owned. They were family oriented and tried their best to work with employee availability, as well as being understanding of last minute situations as long as you called in. Seeing as how all of these factors (aside from pay and benefits) can vary by location I would say apply at your own risk, or be smart and try to speak to the people who actually run the store before applying.
Great coworkers (some), easy to learn job, easy to keep busy, great job for "people" persons.
Customers can sometimes can be scary, robberies do happen (even in the nicer neighborhoods), low pay and no benefits.

Very inconsistent management. Managers are rude, do not listen to your input or requests, and assign all the work while they just sit and do nothing all day on a weekly salary. Would NEVER recommened working here.
