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- Outdated systems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.
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.
The interviews included, among other things, questions about my background, behavioural questions and which areas I am interested in working in.
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.
Free Slurpees and cost price lunches in the canteen (which is basically a 7-Eleven store).
Most of my managers book in weekly or fortnightly meetings. They're readily available via the phone or email. So there's no communication issue. It's really up to you as to whether you make the most of it. We're also assigned a career mentor who we catch up with monthly to discuss any challenges, learning and how we're tracking overall. Importantly, they help you determine the right skills to develop for where you want to head in the company when you apply for a full time role.
A lot of investment in training, e.g. Excel & Outlook training, presentation skills, defensive driving.
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.
Ethnic minorities are very well represented in the company and the diversity is a pleasure. Women fill only 3 out of around 10 leadership team roles although at lower levels there are many women in various roles.
Recent donation matching initiatives have been announced however I have not seen any of this in action as yet. I would like to see the company take more interest in social causes such as homelessness and aiding the indigenous community. The company has recently introduced a cup recycling scheme which the company is immensely proud of and is an amazing step in the right direction.
The location is great in Mt Waverley - easy to get to against peak hour traffic. Dress code is business casual. Good onsite canteen with products at cost price.
7-Eleven is heading in the right direction now with the Coffee Cup recycling program coming in March.Join us to bookmark!
