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.
