Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – November 23, 2017
I loved my job and customers. Although I wasn’t paid nearly enough, it didn’t matter because I absolutely loved my job! It still upsets me I was let go. And all because the store manager got caught slippin!!!

working at Circle K is not a bad environment to work at, the employee greet the customers with a lot of respect. everybody come to work on time, co-workers have all the task done before the next employee come in, and everybody do there part as a team.

It is a very unsafe environment to work in. They don't train you correctly and when you ask for help the employee gets an attitude with you. They are not protected at all when you are working by your self, nobody is there but you so of something happens there's no help around. Its like being back in high school. Circle K has way to much drama between employees. The employees will try and start fighting in the middle of the store with customers inside the store

The customers local and new ones always is why I loved working there. Every time I went back between short college semesters. until the original manager for like almost thirty years I believe had to retire cause of her health. then they got a psycho lunatic in there and ran off all the locals and employees and even some of our vendors.
so many but the pros definitely outweighed the cons for a convenience store job

Great place to work in a fast paced environment. The interaction with the customers are special. Working in this type of environment allows you to deal with people on every level good bad and indifferent.

I enjoyed working at Circle K, but this is definitely not a place to plant your feet for stability. This place is very busy and interactive with customers. As a night shift worker, I was doing more cleaning than customer help, but the customers that did come in were drunk or high on drugs. However, I enjoyed dealing with the people that did come in with a enlightening sense of personality, rather than a rude demeanor and horrible manners. I would have continued to work here, had I not been so poorly trained.
Poor management, turn over rate is ridiculous, and pay isn't worth the hassle of never knowing when you're working.

You receive no breaks, only those that you can take when the store is empty or you actually have someone else working with you. The schedule will constantly be changed due to the number of people who will quit during any given week. Good luck being able to make plans and actually be able to keep them. The management has to be the worst informed and probably the dumbest people on the planet.

Circle K is a fun place to work because you get to meet new people from all over the place. The store has great products. The only problem working at Circle K is the pay. There is a lot of work for a small amount of pay.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – July 12, 2018
Work at your pace but have a scheduled time to be finished. You also work independently or with one other worker. The most joy i got from the job was the customers and the regulars. They always were pleasant and open. The regulars were like family and always looked out for the store.
Hands down best job while I was in school, super flexible schedule, best customers
SHIFT LEADER (Former Employee) – Anthem, AZ – July 12, 2018
I worked for circle k for almost two years and it was the best experience I’ve had thus far. I’m going to school for psychology and the customers from every which place allowed me to reflect school to reality. There was great communication between staff and managers. Everyone worked as a team!

I worked here for longer than I probably should have stuck it out. Management at my particular store was constantly changing until it was to the point that I was doing part of managements job minus the title and pay. They also overworked everyone: "If you've got time to lean, you've got time to clean." It was not uncommon to get phone calls on every single one of my off days to come in (declining was an 'unofficial' black spot on your record). Management was never present on any shift but the morning shift every day. When I moved to the night/graveyard shift, it went from two people being there the whole night to two people for the first 3 or 4 hours helping the one that stays for the full shift and then just one person all night; Day shifts were also skewed due to budget cuts. Every new manager would start to "clean house" and threaten to fire you for so much as taking a seat for a few minutes each shift. There were also times my coworkers and I had to provide cleaning supplies out of our own pockets. I don't know if corporate has cleaned house and changed regulations since but I hope so.
It was a paying job
No breaks, never enough staff, poor management, raises were inconsistent

Very fast paced and all about multitasking. Also you have to sweep, mop,stock, and cashing customers out and help them with anything they needed. Had to sweep parking lot and take out the trash as well.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 10, 2018
As long as you taking care of the customers and making sure the store stayed clean and stocked you shouldn't have anything to worry about it's a very easy task to do it's always something for you to do
