Company Culture

It was not the best environment. It's very hard to get promoted there, because they have so many workers in the force its just really hard to advance or stand out.

Support from management

yes managment there was top notch, some really great managers for the company!!!

Teamwork

yes they were good in this area, its just they expect so much out of you.

Freedom to work independently

They always wanted more out of you without any raises or advances.

Internal Communication

They did communicate a lot, but it was normally to tell you they needed more work done.

Gender Equality

many of the managers are female.

Attitude towards older colleagues

yes, many older people work here. I'd rate them high on that area.

Career Development

at circle k there were, not at my new job. i wish i could go back

Overall compensation for your work

the pay wasnt the greates but was fair and decent

Office / Work Environment

The temperature was always nice and the area was clean because we had to keep it cleaned!!

Environmental Friendliness

this was never talked about much. however they did have 2 trash cans 1 for reg trash and 1 for recycable items. so they actuallly did care.

Work-Life Balance

way to many hours and no time at home because always working

Company Image

i prefer my old job better, at circle k they always gave me 40 hrs my new job does not.

Job Security

yes at circle k they have huge volume so your job is safe and secure

Handicapped Accessibility

they did offer handicap parking and allow people to apply and get hired that most other companies would not. they get a good grade in this area for sure.

Workplace Safety

They are very serious about being careful and working safely on the job.

Challenging Work

It was a tough job. You had to multi task at all times basically. Your expected to keep up with 5 different things in a very short period of time and without enough training. They just don.

Inclusive / Diverse

They have a set way to get things done, but they were always willing to consider new ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'd like to see the managers get higher pay and see managers promoted from within to corporate jobs. Because no one knows the business better than the store managers!!!

What I like about the company

It was good because I had a great manager. That's what made me stay so long. Each store has it's own manager, so it really depends which store you work out to determine which manager you have. There are some really great managers in Central Florida area and some that aren't the best. The one's over in Plant City are WONDERFUL!! I'd highly recomend working for them over the Winter Haven area

What I dislike about the company

I just did not like the long hours, sometimes in the busy hours not getting the proper breaks. Most of the time they were good about it, but there was just sometimes we didn't have enough staff to give ppl time off for their breaks etc.

Workplace Safety

Inclusive / Diverse

I learned alot from my co workers because it was so diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better pay is always a plus. I would encourage that some jobs can be given to taller people and other jobs to shorter people so that their work is not painful. It should not be discriminated against. If a person is too short to reach a shelf they should not be unhirable. Just give them different tasks. It can even out fairly to all workers.

What I like about the company

People are very responsible and do their work well. If there is a problem we can talk openly to each other. Management is perfectly involved so we know they are there and they can intervene before we have to ask them to. It's a safe and comfortable workplace. I enjoyed my time there. Just need to have smaller shifts.

What I dislike about the company

Needed smaller shifts. Some of the stocking is difficult to do above your head. I would say that your size shouldn't be used against you but if you're not tall enough you should have a proper SAFE way to step up and do those things.

Company Culture

Theres a lot of passion with the employees. However there is a serious disconnect in compensation and required working hours.

Support from management

Theres a lot of passion with the employees. However there is a serious disconnect in compensation and required working hours.

Teamwork

Team work is highly valued

Freedom to work independently

You are routinely left to run a site by yourself

Internal Communication

If things are bad you will know it but there's not much praise for doing good

Gender Equality

Mostly fair except when it comes to pay. It seems women still get paid less for the same job.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very respectful to the elderly. Discrimination is not tolerated.

Career Development

They say there are opportunities but none are ever presented. Also it's not clear how to get to them

Overall compensation for your work

No it is not. You are required to be able to work all hours of the day, any day of the year for 50 hours a week. The workload is unfair since you are doing the job of essentially 3 people but the reflects that of one. In addition the work life balance makes it where you always have the looming thought of why do I keep doing this job. The answer to that is you are passionate about work but upsetyou are not fairly compensated.

Office / Work Environment

It is proper

Environmental Friendliness

There is cardboard recycling but more could be done as far as waste.

Work-Life Balance

Management is required to work 50 hours a week and to be available for any shift, weekend, or holiday for call outs. For a family this is horrendous to have adequate and quality time together when your life is basically married to the job.

Company Image

Yes

Job Security

Yes as long you do a good job

Handicapped Accessibility

We are required to be ADA compliant

Workplace Safety

Safe as can be for the industry

Challenging Work

The individual tasks are fine. What makes it challenging is the over workload that is expected.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is constant questions for feedback

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve compensation on a neutral ground based on location volume, experience, and successfulness of the individual. Make it optional to work up to 50 hours but you still receive your normal salary at 40 hours.

What I like about the company

They work well with you in medical emergencies. You can transfer to a new location at any time. Management is easy to talk to.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation, required overtime, lack of individual recognition, high turnover, workload is unfair
