    I have been working at Sheetz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    pay and benefits are decent

    Cons

    A lot more to get done working 3rd shift and less employees.. First shift gets all of the hours even with second shift being the busiest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep mentioning "total customer focus", and "hospitality", yet don't want to spend the extra money for more employees per shift for us to fully be able to give this to customers.

    Sheetz is ok

    I have been working at Sheetz part-time

    Pros

    The money can be good. A lot of stores try and promote a family atmosphere within themselves.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a problem. People always call off so you are getting called at least twice a week to come in. The new trend right now is to constantly be short staffed. the mangers state that they don't have the hours to give anyone but they then hire new people at least one a month. Turn over is high.

    I worked at Sheetz part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Mostly nice management
    Great Pay
    Corporate really cares about their workers
    New growing company

    Cons

    The environment is toxic: The customers can be very mean and sometimes so are your coworkers. Shifts are very frustrating for everyone in the store because of the fast pace everyone has to work at; this is fast food after all and customers want to get in and get out. Meanwhile you have to make everything fresh in that timely manner. It's almost impossible to get projects and cleaning done because of the heavy flow of customers. You can't rely on someone else to finish that project either and you almost always have to stay overtime to finish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the big guys are doing a great job. I enjoyed the benefits offered, the chances to get the most of the job, and the little bonuses and Christmas gifts I was sent. I think this company is going far and will hopefully spread from the northeast to across the nation soon.

    Pros

    Stock match, ESOP, time off, reliable source of income.

    Cons

    Low starting wage at corporate level for college graduates. When you get in to your position there is some growth but soon enough you will max out.

    Pros

    Good if your a college student or in an assistant manager or GM position. Promote within.

    Cons

    Starting wage is 8.75 but you work to cover cost of gas for traveling to and from work. Wish the pay was higher for what we do then it wouldn't be so bad. It is a very demanding job and not appreciated for what we do. Not a good starting wage if you have a family to support and cannot move up in position quickly. Not always staffed enough to cover each shift and only 50% off food when working, nothing when your off the clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that corporate employees who have never worked in the kitchen should work it for a couple weeks. I think then they will understand how you have to be staffed to keep customers happy and take the stress off of the employees. Also would have a better understanding for how things should be set up and for food options that would decrease waiting time. I also think they would understand that living off of 8.75 really isn't ideal. We work very hard at what we do and don't get paid for what we accomplish each day. Sheetz is a good company to advance within if your able to work the long demanding hours, but I wish the pay was better and we had more support.

    Not great.

    I worked at Sheetz full-time

    Pros

    Discount on food which I guess is cool. I honestly can't think of any other positives.

    Cons

    High turn over rate, poor management. I think other stores probably have a better deal going on, but I was working at an old one that was a mile away from where they had just built and opened a brand new Sheetz. They sent all their best managers there and left the terrible ones for the store I was at.
