7-Eleven in big jobs blitz for its peak season

7-Eleven is ls making a major push to hire new workers as it heads into its busiest time of the year.

The convenience-store giant and participating independent franchise owners are looking to hire up to 40,000 new employees to fill positions at more than 13,000 7-Eleven stores across the United States. The company will hold a national hiring day on June 3 at participating local stores, although job seekers don’t have to wait till June to apply.  

Positions are available at 7-Eleven’s corporate locations and the 3,800 Speedway stores the chain recently acquired from Marathon Petroleum Corp., as well as locations run by participating independent 7-Eleven franchise owners. The available positions are for store-level employees (both entry and management) and non-store positions, including maintenance technicians, transport drivers and other support roles. 

“Now that a growing number have received vaccines and the economy is opening back up, people are more than ready to get back to normal," said Chris Tanco, 7-Eleven executive VP and COO. "That includes finding steady jobs with future opportunities, and 7-Eleven, Speedway and 7-Eleven independent franchise owners offer just that.”

When COVID-19 struck, the convenience retailer and its participating franchisees put out two hiring calls for 40,000 new employees to keep local corporate or franchisee-owned stores open at a time. The company estimates that, between the organization and independent 7-Eleven franchise owners, it hired more than 50,000 employees. 

7-Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 77,000 stores in 16 countries and regions, including 16,000 in North America.
