Tips to get hired here with a felony
We recommend you start with your resume. Our guide offers great tips on how to spice up your resume so all your customer service skills are highlighted. Once you’ve had your resume looked over by a fresh set of eyes, you are ready to begin the application process.
You should know that 7-Eleven does not require a resume, but we suggest you still have one to help you fill out the application. They ask things for a reason, so try not to leave anything blank. If something does not apply to you, simply mark it with N/A (not applicable). By filling in every blank, you’re showing attention to detail and also helps prevent you from overlooking something.
The interview process will be the last step. When arriving for your interview, we recommend you get there 10-15 minutes early. It shows good work ethic!
We would advise that you bring a copy of your resume to the interview for the interviewer. Make sure you are prepared to ask a few questions. Most companies like it when applicants ask questions because it shows interest in the position.
7-Eleven does not ask about previous convictions on their application, so the interview is the best possible time to address them (before a background check is done). Make your past a strength. Let them see that, even though you’ve made mistakes, you are using your record as a stepping stone, not a crutch.
