Stay strong and leave 7-Eleven long gone. Former employee here, and I can tell you they don't care. They want their money and will tell you false statements of moving you up and it never happens. All they care about is their piece of the pie, while... — read more
I'm 55. I've been applying since I was laid off and I'm yet to get an interview. All the jobs I applied for I'm either qualified or overqualified for. I don't understand what's going on, other than maybe my age being a deterrent. Are others having... — read more
What’s the trick to recruiting people after you’ve just laid off nearly 900?
A quick Google search will show this stands for Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Notice where companies with over 100 employees have to file with the state to give employees 60 days notice. It varies by state but wasn't sure if 7E... — read more
Never before have I heard from so many they're looking to leave. I think people are truly shaken up and upset by what has happened and they want to move on before something similar happens again. I can see 7-Eleven losing a lot of good people over... — read more
I was laid off in 2019 and I know how hard it is for many, so I came here just to give a little support, if it means anything to anyone. The layoff was a big shock for me at the time because I didn't expect it at all and I thought it was the worst... — read more
First of all, I think that a good management would try to find another solution. But it seems that this management is not even trying to find another solution besides cuts. What's even more problematic is that so many outstanding performers have... — read more
The worst part is some of the mid-level and senior level leaders who continue to survive at SEI. Just gross. The culture points are aspirational at best. It’s a bloated bureaucracy, siloed and toxic. I was ejected in 2019 and it was a blessing. I... — read more
The company does have opportunities especially at senior leadership level (like a new CEO and new executives who has the capability and skills to run a company in the 21st century). But we live in a capitalistic society enjoying its varied benefits... — read more
Still employed, real feedback… As someone who sat through countless hours with BCG during integration, the amount of trust 7-11 put into a 3rd party consultant was scary from the start. Decisions were made too fast to capture synergy, which is the... — read more
I survived the layoffs at 7-Eleven. Morale is atrocious. Managers and Directors openly badmouthing the senior leadership...and rightfully so. Once the layoffs started, I immediately went to work searching for new remote employment, since the... — read more
As someone who quit working for the company just over a year ago, let me just offer these words of encouragement: you will land somewhere better. Working at 7-Eleven teaches you how to be tough and to have a thick skin… wherever you land you will... — read more
Typically, I am not one for politics but will make an exception this one time. 7-Eleven tends to operate their stores in regions that are more urban, diverse, and liberal-leaning than in suburban area… how else would they get away with such predatory... — read more
4 ways to overcome the stigma of layoffs and find a new job in today's economy https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-overcome-the-stigma-of-layoffs-find-new-job-2022-7
What’s fair severance pay if there wasn’t any WARN notice? DOL says 60 days in advance is a minimum for mass layoffs off more than 500 employees in a 6 month period. Without proper WARN notice to employees they should be paying minimum 60 days? — read more
What a total cluster *^%#. People with decades of service kicked to the curb with no warning. Contractor accounts turned off mid meetings with no notice. 7-eleven treats employees poorly and contractors with disdain. They can try to say it was... — read more
In case somebody is interested.
Anyone find it ironic that the new required monthly Compass Training course is on: “Empathy”?! What a freaking joke! I just can’t… lol Time for a mass exodus of Area Leaders
Does anyone know how they came up with who to cut? Particularly AL level? I feel discriminated. Age or time with company? Please comment with subgroup size and years of service. Maybe we can find out collectively unless someone here already knows.
I'm still safe, but these cuts are a big lesson to me that one should always, absolutely always look for better options. Top dogs did not show the slightest empathy towards the affected ones, which was to be expected because they only care about... — read more
Imagine that he was your commanding officer sending you out to be slaughtered but he gives that order while hiding and never showing his face. So much for touting his military leadership skills and West Point degree.
I pretty much knew that something bad was brewing and luckily, I was preparing in case it came to this. Somehow I had a feeling that there would be cuts. However, when I now recall how much the boss assured us that everything would be fine, I can't... — read more
If you hadn't been laid off, how much longer would you have stayed here? I hope to find another option before they show me the door.
Speedway recruiters are gone as of August 5, 2022.
I don't understand why it's hitting me this hard but after 12 years and being discarded so unceremoniously, I still feel like cr-p days later. It bugs me that those who make these decisions don't give a damn about how it affects those who are on the... — read more
As a Speedway SL, hearing so many things here in the Chicago market. What is the facts??? Heard FIMS and FMC's gone immediately. Recruiters not until Oct 1st. Some AL's gone? Trainers gone? Two weeks severance or one? Some offered alternative... — read more
I’m trying to wrap my head around this. FCs we’re on a teams call for 15 minutes with the Market Manager and HR rep. It sounds like we had a couple thousand people laid-off. That’s potentially 500 hours last week in teams calls, assuming all the... — read more
Hi All - I am really sorry about layoffs and I hope that all affected will find job replacements very soon. I've spent 33 years working for 711 and I've seen many layoffs. I've retired about ten years ago and I can tell you that layoffs are built... — read more
Every since Doug took over corporate stores ,company has got to sh-t. Guy has no energy he just a pr--k. I know he one of the main reasons for cuts. He care less about one affected. They had a town hall on Friday and explained all the cuts and that... — read more
Where are people applying? I'm worried that with layoffs all around, no matter where I apply I might find myself without a job once again within months. Are there any good alternatives that provide at least some job security, especially in the... — read more
I was laid off from another company before and I can tell you that while it might not seem so right now, things will get better. The job market is still hot. There are openings all over the place for decent pay. I'm guaranteeing you the majority will... — read more
You can't add a story to a house that has a broken foundation. But yet the company pretends this is all part of the plan. You chewed off more than you could swallow and now your employees, on both sides, are paying the price.
I’ve worked for Speedway for 4 years now and I can’t believe how quickly this company has gone down hill. I work in a cafe store that hasn’t been inspected for food safety for months. We got an email a week ago that FIMS was going to resume... — read more
