7-Eleven Inc. is hosting a hiring event on March 7 for new jobs at its Store Support Center in Enon, Ohio, supporting customers, employees and franchisees across all of the company’s brands, including 7-Eleven, Speedway, Stripes, Laredo Taco Company and Raise the Roost Chicken and Biscuits.

Irving, Texas-based 7-Eleven operates, franchises or licenses more than 83,000 convenience stores in 19 countries and regions, including about 13,000 in the United States under multiple brands.

Following its acquisition of Speedway from Marathon Petroleum Corp. in 2021, 7-Eleven cut staff at this location, which was Speedway’s former headquarters.

The new hiring event, which the company will hold at the Enon Store Support Center, is to fill open roles across customer service, IT support and alarm center dispatch. IT support jobs will be responsible for troubleshooting IT issues and ensuring compliance of in-store equipment, in addition to fulfilling requests from customers. Alarm center dispatch jobs will support stores’ emergency mitigation and response and ensure customer safety protocol.

Employee benefits include competitive hourly wages, flexible work schedules, paid time off and career advancement opportunities. Tuition reimbursement is also available to qualifying employees.

In addition to the in-person hiring event, the company is allowing interested applicants to apply online at the Speedway careers website. It will consider all levels of work experience, the company said.

“For more than 95 years, 7-Eleven has been leading the way to revolutionize convenience – and in 2023 our family of brands is committed to investing in even more local growth opportunities to continue this legacy to serve our customers, stores and Franchisees,” said Sam Mulkey, senior vice president and general manager of Speedway and Speedway integration. “Bringing local, domestic jobs to the hometown of Speedway helps fulfill our mission to give our customers what they want, when and where they want it.”

In May 2022, 7-Eleven held a hiring event with the goal of filling 60,000 jobs, the company said.

In the biggest deal in the history of the convenience-store industry, 7-Eleven acquired Speedway from Findlay, Ohio-based Marathon in May 2021. The portfolio included approximately 3,800 convenience stores located in 36 states. In October 2021, 7-Eleven laid off approximately 35 people at Speedway’s headquarters in Enon, Ohio, as part of the company’s process of integrating the two c-store staffs, networks and brands. In July 2022, 7-Eleven laid off nearly 900 members of its corporate, field and support staff. The retailer cited the acquisition and integration of Speedway as the reason for the cuts.
