Circle K - bad company to work for

When Circle K bought out all the Super Pantry locations in Illinois, they promised that everything would remain the same. Yeah right. First they took away our free sodas and coffees while on duty, they took away the extra wages when working overnights, they took away the bullet proof glass, and took away the cash back feature. They also treat their...

Circle K - bad employee

I was taking care of a close friend who was on medications. Because she was acting strange I decided to go with her to the store. Once inside she walked over to the soda fountain and filled a cup. While doing this she said it looked strange. She then drank some and said it also tasted different than usual. I figured it must be the medication she was on. At the counter she decided to ask for cigs. I told her she had a carton of cigs back at her house. Plus i told her that she left her wallet and ID back home as well. I then told the attendant "Christian" that my friend was on some medication and did not need any cigs right now, and that she didn't have any ID anyways. I asked if he could just charge us for the 32 oz.. Polar Pop so we could leave. Christian then looks at his fellow attendant "Mary". She nods and he then goes to retrieve the pack of cigs. I ask him are you really going to sell her cigs without an ID? I then tell him that if he does I am going to make a formal complaint. He says my friend looks old enough and he can still sell to her anyways. At that point I asked for the other attendants name she replied "Mary". I told them that I was shocked that they disregarded my requests and would be making a complaint. I then left the store and waited outside for my friend to finish so we could leave together. Outside i sat and waited for her. After about 15-20 mins. I noticed her still standing out front. Walking up to her I noticed she had 4 or 5 receipts in her hand. Christian and Mary had charged her for 4 sodas and 4 packs of different cigs. She was complaining to them that they we not "real" cigs and asking for the owners name and number so she could call and complain. Clearly she was not acting rational. Upset I walked back in the store and said to Christian are we done? Are we done selling her cigs? He replied...Ya. Mary then informed me that my friend kept buying cigs crying and complaining about them and then throwing the packs in the trash. After digging through the inside trash-can for two packs and the outside one for two more packs we left for the night. I am shocked that people would take advantage of someone that they knew and was clearing told was on medications.

This is not shocking, they are not taking advantage of anyone. You are the one treating your friend like she is a four year old child. As an adult if they refused to sell her the cigarettes they can be sued for discrimination. I bet your friend was angry that you were treating her as if she is four years old. Also they generally only ask for ID if the person is under 40. You just wanted to control your friend and were angry that they treated her like an adult. How would you like it if someone discriminated against you and treated you like a child. You sure act like one so why not treat you like one.

Circle K - hygiene of manager

I've been with the company for 8 years. My current manager is disgusting af. I have always had female managers and ever since the new male manager has worked at my store, he stinks. It's like he never showers and his work shirt stinks like he doesn't do his freaking laundry. And to top it off he's pissing me off because he is asking my other co-worker why we need the upcoming Sunday off. I'm like well, it was scheduled a month in advance so he shouldn't have anything to complain about. So on top of no hygiene practice at all, he mistreats his employees.

Circle K - cleanliness

I just spent forever posting a complaint to Circle K's facebook page (because there is NO place to give store feedback) and since I'm not sure if the post even went through (I can't see it anywhere) I'm reposting it here because I'm unusually angry and disgusted: I've been searching for a page or form or telephone number I can call to bring attention to...

Circle K - mistreatment of employees

I currently work for Circle K. It has been a little under a year since I started, but I am desperately trying to find work elsewhere. When I was hired, I was told it would be full time, 40 hours... I only get 40 hours if I work past my shift. I didn't get a 90 day raise, and only when I was promoted to asistant manager (I know this is spelled wrong, but it...

Circle K - employee

We needed help pumping our gas. It was our first time at that gas station and it was different then all the ones we've been to. We were not able to figure it out on our own so we canceled the payment and tried paying inside. Instead of getting help we got a much older lady yelling at my boyfriend and I and was completely rude. Instead of showing us how to...

Circle K - second wind services

I represent Go Green Electric Inc. We were subcontracted by Luis Oropesa with Second Wind Services to remodel coffee bars and lighting. Luis has not paid us half of what is owed to us and claiming false information about missing materials. A representative from Circle K came out and checked our warehouse. We are going to begin to take legal action against Mr. Oropesa and the Circle K stores. I would like to speak with someone about this matter as it is costly and extremely time ineffective to get wrapped up in a court case. It is a shame that Circle K has a General Contractor that is hiring subcontractors and not paying them what is due. Go Green Electric Inc. is a smaller company and this has us on the edge of shutting the doors. I would like to speak with someone as soon as possible about this. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. After many months, no response has been issued from Circle K or Second Wind Service. It is a tragedy that Circle K is allowing their contractors to cheat their subcontractors and his actions are unprofessional.

This was the worst company I've ever worked for, I was fired after I was robbed, assaulted, and because I defended myself, I am pregnant and was made to come in while I was sick even though I should've been in the hospital, I worked 3rd shift alone as soon as they started me because they had no one else to work it. The boss gossip constantly about...

Circle K - employer

I went to Circle K on Fourth street after picking my cousin up from his late class around 4;30 on February 4th. 2015. We went in and got 4 drinks. I do not appreciate the way one of the employees completely ignored me and my cousin. It was rather rude and uncalled for. I think Circle K should reconsider hiring better staff who don't treat employees with disrespect. If they are rude to me and my cousin for no reason, how many other customers would they be rude to? I will not be visiting this particular Circle K ever again.

Circle K - verbal harassment

My son went into store to pay for gas / cigs. And the cashier gave him $1. 00 too much in change, right when he noticed, and was handing it back, she snatched the money right out of his hand. Okay, he lets that slide, figuring we all have bad days. In a few minutes, as he was pumping his gas, she came out to the pumps and gets up in his face and is yelling & cursing at him. He asks her to stop & step back (5 times) as his 3yr old son is right there in the car, crying because the "meanlady"scared him. She was being very rude & derrogatory over somrthing that was her mistake and was over and done. Wtf?Also, this is a co - located circle k with subway, where his girlfriend works and we are worried that there may be retaliation on her. Dont know whats up with that employee but maybe some kind of personal problem with leslie (Sons girlfriend) ?Time frame - 9am 01 / 17 / 2015 lincoln hill road monroe, la 71203

Circle K - disrespectful/rude employee

I want to start by saying I avoid this circle k as much as a can and is referred to by my friends and I as the "hood Circle K." Due to our numerous bad experiences there. Unfortunately, on January 15th around 3:20pm I entered the store to get 2 polar pops. The woman in front of me at the drink machine gets her cup and presses to get ice, on both sides, -sounds like there is ice coming. (Also there is FRESH ice in the drain that clearly came from the machine, directly under the ice dispenser) I got a cup and tried the other side along with the other woman that was in front of me. All the while there is a circle k employee right behind us restocking the creamers and sugars and things, after a few tries I turn to the employee and asked "is this out of ice?" She turns to me -with the [censor]iest face I've ever seen and says "OBVIOUSLY!" I have never been so mad, I cannot let this go. I dropped my cup and walked right out. This woman needs to be FIRED, and hopefully the crap knocked out of her. So rude and disrespectful. IF THE ICE IS OBVIOUSLY OUT, YOU OBVIOUSLY SHOULD PUT CUPS OVER THE ICE DISPENSERS, OR IDK MAYBE POST A SIGN?!? She's lucky I've found Jesus.
