Thread regarding 7-Eleven, Inc. layoffs

If you're still at SEI, YOU SHOULD BE INTERVIEWING.

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 C-suite seems to think forcing everyone back to the office 5 days a week amidst 9% inflation, gas prices, 2.5% raises, etc...will somehow boost sales and "create a dynamic office culture".

That's a favorite line (i.e., lie) from SVP Jack Stout, by the way. Hey Jack, we all saw through the crocodile tears on Monday. If you loved all those employees who were laid off, how come you weren't in the lobby saying goodbye while third-party uniformed security was perp-walking them out the building? Hmm...

If you're still at 7-Eleven, GET OUT. Start interviewing today. There are plenty of companies who want to hire talented people, remotely if you so desire, and will PAY YOU. I had an amazing offer in under TWO WEEKS.

7-Eleven is a dying company that is going to struggle to find applicants until the senior leadership is replaced by people who can read the tea leaves, instead of being Trump bootlickers who get aro--ed by the thought of seeing butts in seats as a form of control. Seriously. The entire organization spends 90% of its time managing the emotions of the grown a-s "adults" occupying VP, SVP, and C-suite offices. Why would you stay at such a company?

Get out, now. Go find something better. You deserve better. And send these dinosaurs back to the tar pits from whence they came because they can't explain the massive turnover to their Japanese puppetmasters.

I went from being ranked a “B plus” employee who’d won numerous awards and was promoted for me and my team’s efforts for growing a group of lagging businesses in a large region… within six months I was ranked a “C slash” in the popularity contest known as “the HRP process” and was moved to a lateral role in the company that my director knew I didn’t want… all because a group of Franchisees in a couple of markets asked why we didn’t have some national brand products available in Pride Month packaging like the competition had… and I dared to propose we offer it the following year. One of the most homophobic companies I have EVER seen in my lifetime. Luckily I saw the writing on the wall and left on my own… and got almost $25K more per year where I went. Find a place to work that will pay you what you’re worth, treat you the way you deserve to be treated, and has leadership that doesn’t use its “leadership values” AGAINST its employees.

“Morale is atrocious”… at 7-Eleven’s Store Support Center? You must be kidding?!

This isn’t news. Poor morale has been the one thing you could always count on day in and day out in that building regardless of whether it was feast or famine in terms of sales

Exactly what I meant a bad employee shouldn’t be there also just like a bad franchisee…

"Now you see how the franchisees feel when you very people sided with 7-11 when they took their lively hoods away. Just because you (7-11) could . No sympathy with you guys you all had it coming …"

7 eleven employees didn't close your stores, those decisions were made by the people who laid us off and besides bad franchisees shouldnt be running a store anyway.
