Company claiming Covid payments for all employees is greedy and unnecessary.
If your lucky enough to have a decent manager I would recommend part time hours not a job anyone could last in full time.

Asked constantly to do training apps at home while not in work without pay.

Workloads are passed on constantly.

Social media groups constantly have messege alerts that might or might not be work related.
Pros
Free Coffee and bottled water
Cons
Treated with lack of respect just a number

I was bullied from a deli supervisor and shop manager when I first started at Circle K. Nothing was done about it and it was clearly known. However, I asked to move to the shop floor when my employer got moved so it wasn't as bad. I think head office and site managers should really think about who they promote as line managers as throughout my experience, I had 3 managers who were all incompetent of doing their job.

Look at any job advertisement for Circle K and it would appear that it is a place that will work with your lifestyle. Sit in a job interview and hear this backed up further with promises of how supported you will be joining a global company.
Cut to the reality of working in a site where you are berated for not knowing everything from day one, constantly scrutinised. You meet nice people, staff, trainers but overall you work like a dog and get paid very little

Working at Circle K is not that bad. There are no benefits except a small discount on food and 3 free coffees or water. Salary is just above minimum wage and thats fine working at smaller, quiter sites. However working at busy sites thats non stop running around it is a poor salary. Everything is always unorganised and its free for all as management will not train you. You need to figure stuff out alone.

Circle K is ok for the first job just to get your bills paid and thats all. You won’t have any more money. No extra for night shift or weekends. Overall wasn’t too bad.

Working at Circle K is enjoyable and I have learned a lot in my current role. I have gained experience and training in the deli and enjoy meeting the customers when I work my shift.

I'm a Part time worker in Circle K and have worked there about 6 months, training is inadequate as hardly anything I learned (besides basics like tills and stock) was useful.
Management is poor to say the least, no consideration is given to your needs, many senior staff who have worked with the company for years are leaving as a testament to this.

It's very hard to balance a healthy social life in my case as I go to college full time, and stay behind to study til late in the evening. Thus I must work on weekends due to the 8 hour shifts, and can only work the evening shift as senior staff are given the morning shifts, meaning I can't even get out on a weekend to meet my friends, and I'm too busy with college to do anything during the week.
Pros
Free hot drinks.
Cons
Long shifts with no chance of short shifts. Hard to balance social life and work.

The majority of the day consisted of dealing with customers and to provide them with a high level of customer service. This meant dealing with them in a quick and efficient manner and something in a pedantic manner if customers had queries or a complaint.
This gave me the opportunity to enhance a lot of my soft skills which I think would transfer over to many other roles in other industries.

For example, my communication skills increased as I dealt with customers,management and suppliers on a daily basis.

Organisational and planning skills were also essential as it being one of the busiest service stations in the country it was key to be efficient with my time in order to fulfill my role effectively.

The culture was very good as the company had many perks and I really felt valued by my cohorts and managers.

The most enjoyable part of the job for me was dealing with customers on a daily basis.
Pros
Free coffee and lunches
Cons
High turnover on staff
