Tonight I learned a news from TV. Every year in Japan there will be a vote for the worst company and this year it is the fourth election. And in 2015 the worst company in Japan is 7-11. Oh... 7-11 is just so popular. There are two 7-11 stores nearby my home. The news said 7-11 in Japan treat the employees bad, and they are especially mean to the overseas students. This is my first time to hear the negative news from 7-11. Hopefully they will make some improvements and don't be the winner next year.

We have 7-11s all over the US. I assume it's a US company.

In Asia 7-11 stores are very popular and you can see it in many places. I wonder is it originally from Japan?

@youless NO 7-Eleven is not a Japanese company, it was founded in 1927 in Dallas (TX), United States.

I think the franchise owners are the ones who treat the employees badly. They are small owners, and they probably do not give good salary or good benefits to the part-timers. The fact that the job requires mid-night shift is another reason for scoring low in employee satisfaction.

But somewhat 7-11 is still famous. If it is so bad, I can't imagine how it will be for other small companies.

7-11 is not a Japanese company for what I know, it's an American company.

Good information. I didn't know that there is a bad company in Japan. :) Companies should treat their employees well, I agree with that. Without their workers, the companies are nothing and can do nothing either.

Selection for the worst company is much more meaningful than votes for the best employers.
