Don't work for 7 eleven. The owner, Shakaut and manager, Natalene, at the Beecher st. Location in Adrian, MI, are a joke, so unprofessional. They favor staff and I was stuck doing everyone's job. My family and friends refuse to shop there and I won't waste 1 penny of my money in that store ever again. A lot of health code violations going on. The manager talked about all staff behind their backs and told 2 of my coworkers she was trying to get me... see more

Management and staff were very interesting and friendly.
The store was very near my residence,like a working distance.
I loved working there.Hours were good and flexible and sometimes overtime is encouraged.

They work you for 92 hours at a time, no breaks, and when their system gets hacked they blame you and fire you, and they only pay 8.00 hour, no holiday pay and no overtime pay

Our house payments are lapsing and I am so scared. My wife is ill and can no longer work. We aren’t making enough to get by with the job I have now and I think we will lose our home in the next 4 months if I don’t act fast. I know it sounds nuts, but what about truck driving?
