An irate customer came into my office. He was wearing mirror shades so u couldn’t see his eyes. I asked him if I could help him and he just kept looking around and ignoring me. He left and went out of the building. I was confused so I asked my manager who was that and she said he was a guy that came in rather aggressively and headed straight to the back to my office. She was coming behind him to see what he wanted but by the time she got to my office he had left. We stood up front for a few and talked about what happened. My manager and another manager that was visiting the store went outside and walked around the building. I went out a few minutes later and we realized that the guy that came in was still in the parking lot on his phone. We didn’t know he was still outside but they termed me and my manager for no chase policy but I never chased him. I showed up for these people everyday. Never called out and always worked my 50+ hrs. I always gave 100 percent!

Pros and Cons
Pay was good
Not treating people fairly

They do not care how many hours you work they do not pay you for every hour you are only paid for the $50 your salary circle k at least pays you for every hour worked but none of these companies care for a work-life balance they don't care that you don't get to do things with your family they don't care if you get to a doctor

Pros and Cons
They pay more than other companies but circle k is more because they pay for every hour
I wouldn't work for this company I would run they really don't care
