7-Eleven Australia Reviews
Reviews by 7-Eleven Australia graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.2GradAustralia surveyed 5 graduates working at 7-Eleven Australia. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 5 responses.
- Variety of departments and breadth of learning opportunities
- The company places a lot of focus on improvement - they're never complacent where they are. This means that although they have to maintain certain standards in some areas, they continually try to innovate and be creative in other areas.
- The size of the company is great. It's not small but not too big either so that there is a familiar feel to it and you can get insights into many different areas.
- The people and the culture.
- Outdated systems
- Some in-house processes and technologies aren't up to speed with how quickly the company is trying to innovate which makes it difficult sometimes. Communication across departments and to all staff isn't always the best either.
- The office in Mount Waverley is not easily accessible by public transport.
- The exposure to food! Our canteen is basically a 7-Eleven store with free Slurpee. If you don't have the self control, you can expect weight gain (around 7 - 11 kgs).
What insiders say about…
At the moment and while I'm in Retail Operations, I am acting as a Retail Business Manager. This is similar to a District Manager but with more of a partnership perspective with franchisees. What I do is essentially coach franchisees to grow their business by meeting with them throughout the week to analyse sales data, review financials for opportunities, implement top-down initiatives in store, and ensure compliance with 7-Eleven standards as well as legal standards. The job also entails a lot of relationship management and problem solving.
The company values work life balance and encourages healthy lifestyle through seminars and physical activity. Everyone is friendly and fun however socialising is difficult outside of work due to the head office location.
Why do you want to work for 7-Eleven? Tell us what you know about 7-Eleven. Tell us about yourself. What's a recent movie you watched and why did you like it? Tell us a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and what did you do? You decide that Choc Tops should be sold in 7-eleven. What are things to take into consideration before launching in stores? Tell us about a time you had to work with someone difficult and what did you do?
Everyone's going to jump on the 7-Eleven website and repeat the information on there. Go into a 7-Eleven store, visit their social media, download their fuel app and take note of your observation. You don't need to purposely visit. Just drop by when you need to refuel your car or buy a Slurpee! Employers want to know you're a brand advocate and thinking of how you see yourself being a part of the 7-Eleven team. If you're interested in digital marketing, take note of their recent campaigns. What did you like about it, how do you see yourself contributing if you were in the team, what do you want to learn etc.?
I wouldn't say the company is very flexible with hours or working from home however the work/life balance is good and an exorbitant number of hours isn't the norm.
Comparable when you consider hours/pressure and risks however.
Recently went to the Australian Open with the team on a Friday!
Managers are generally excellent and invested in grad development. Grads are assigned a mentor who really advocate for them.
Training depends on the department and includes shadowing, fulfilling a temp role, franchisee training and project based work.
The structure is relatively flat. So it takes a while to move up the ranks but you generally have a lot of responsibility or variety of work within your role. But there's performance management where you discuss your career path with your manager.
I'm aware there are measures of diversity at 7-Eleven but don't believe there are programs which actively seek applicants from ethnic minorities. There could be work with child care etc.
There is a great CSR program beginning this year with the opportunity to volunteer and donate or salary sacrifice to charities.
We're looking to move offices as we're running out of space! There's two offices (across the road from each other). The dress code is semi formal. We're not always in suit and ties. There's casual Friday.
7-Eleven is heading in the right direction now with the Coffee Cup recycling program coming in March.Join us to bookmark!
