Pros & Cons

  • Variety of departments and breadth of learning opportunities.
  • Culture.
  • 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  • Outdated systems.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).

Career Prospects
Most grads proceed to coordinator roles initially. I haven't seen evidence of grads being promoted in preference to other candidates but the most senior ex-grads are only two years out of the program.

7-Eleven is taking a leading role in cup recycling in Australia by working with Simply Cups to save takeaway cups from going to landfill.

Culture
Overall the culture is quite good. Everybody is really friendly and from what I have experienced, there isn't a massive hierarchical climate at work. The workplace is also not highly formal which suits me well. Teamwork and cooperation are encouraged - everyone is always willing to answer questions if you need help and I've never experienced any competitive nature between co-workers in my current position. Socialising is encouraged however we don't have consistent out-of-hours catch ups as a team.

Diversity
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.
