What I like

weekly pay

What I dislike

Treated terrible every night by a very rude employee , no support from MIT one sided decisions , never took my complaints seriously or cared when i worked sick worried only about covering my shift . Very poor communication skills upper management poor never listening to employees. no breaks

Suggestions for improvement

Have respect for employees allow us to have breaks two people scheduled mid shift , build strong communication skills provide safe workplace can lock store to use restroom for 5 minutes, train management offer training to effectively help them improve their skills. Survey employees, regular feedback can identify problem areas and possibly point out strategies and ideas to make workplace better.

Overall compensation for your work

underpaid

Environmental Friendliness

No respect for eachother, a personal connection between employees wasn't there no one wanted to create a friendly workplace so everyone felt they were part of something instead of just worker drone.

Workplace Safety

OSHA guidelines were never followed a safety oversight by far. The door where employees enter broke no possible way to lock it , no breaks for 8 hour shift use of restroom was limited or not at all. Trash dumpster unsafe distance from storefront to dispose of trash after dark. Lock switch behind counter disabled or turned off if emergency came up employees have no access to lock front door.

Teamwork

Lacking thereof needs improvement

Attitude towards older colleagues

The issue wasn't about older the attitude was unfriendly , unbearable, making employee engagement miserable. Communication is key to building a strong team stay positive focus on achieving good results.

Support from management

None

Office / Work Environment

Uncomfortable

Challenging Work

extremely challenging ugh...

Freedom to work independently

You never had to worry employees always worked alone, one day a week i had co worker for 4 hours i expected to be stuck at register which always happened can't remember when i had an actual break during my shift 10 minutes if i was lucky.

Former EmployeeWorked at Circle k in united states.

What I like

Treat everyone with respect. Training until you know what you are doing and get it right. Breaks given on time and work with you in an emergency situation so you don't lose your job if ill or other circumstances come up. Employees all treated the same. No treating anyone of different race any differently.

What I dislike

I actually do not have anything that I disapprove of.

Suggestions for improvement

With the many customers we have at least 2 people should be working to get the customers taken care of in a decent amount of time. We are on a place where customer service would be better since this is a highly traffic are of customers.
