The world’s largest convenience retailer and its franchisees are hiring store employees to keep stores clean and stocked, in the face of increased demand.
We don’t usually copy and paste press releases nearly verbatim, but these are extraordinary times.
7-Eleven also anticipates employees would help fill mobile orders place through its 7NOW® delivery app, which delivers everything from staples like milk and bread, over-the-counter medicine, a range of snacks like pizza and Slurpee® drinks, and more.
Orders are typically delivered in about 30 minutes, however, in the current environment, the demand may have an impact on delivery times.
“7-Eleven is a neighborhood store and it’s our priority to serve the communities in which we operate during this unprecedented crisis,” said 7-Eleven president Joe DePinto.
“Between 7-Eleven, Inc. and our franchised business owners, we expect as many as 20,000 store employees to be hired in the coming months. This will provide job opportunities and ensure 7-Eleven stores remain clean and in-stock with the goods our customers need during this critical time.”
Applicants for corporate and franchised stores may apply at careers.7-Eleven.com or inquire at their local store.
Note that independent franchise owners will be the employers at franchised locations.
