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- Outdated systems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…
It changes day to day and from rotation to rotation. I'm currently in Operations where I spent the first three months completing store experience. That means I've spent two weeks in class learning how to run a Franchise, worked in store as a staff member & store manager as well as relief a retail business manager (i.e. area manager). I'm now working closely with the National Manager on a business strategic initiative. This involves collaborating with various key stakeholders from different departments. I helped facilitate the
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.
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!
In my experience, managers are pretty accessible and always willing to help out where they can
A lot of investment in training, e.g. Excel & Outlook training, presentation skills, defensive driving.
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.
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.Join us to bookmark!
