    Great Company to Work for!

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Mechanicsburg, PA

    ProsSheetz is a great company to work for with a great culture and plenty of career advancement opportunities.

    ConsWhen you are a member of salary management at times you put way to many hours in. The five days of work most my time is spent at my store. Also, the bonus needs to be allocated differently Assistants only get ten percent of what the Store manager makes but yet some Assistants do most the work while the Stroe manager just "oversees" the operation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the allocation of the Bonus between Assistant Manager and Store Manager.

    Great place to work!

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    St. Marys, PA

    ProsGreat people, benefits, and discounts.

    ConsThey could pay a little better for the work we do. It's a lot of work, Sheetz is always busy and we bust our butts every day, every shift, and there are times it is impossible to get everything done because it is so busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be the leader and work with other employees and do your share of the work.

    Sheetz is a wonderful company. Good pay, great benefits, and excellent incentives.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsI received a very good base salary and enjoyed quarterly bonuses. I t is a very challenging environment and your management skills will be put to the test.

    ConsLong hours and call offs can create a poor quality of life. The individual store goals can be somewhat unrealistic at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch every move and decision that you make. There is so much competition that some people are willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead. It can be a cut throat environment at times.

    salesperson

    Sales Person (Current Employee)

    ProsA great working environment if you like fast-paced, busy work and enjoy engaging with the general public. Decent salary and benefits are offered to Sheetz employees. Being a team member at Sheetz is like being part of a culture or society whose main focus is assuring each customer leaves feeling like they are a part of that culture/society.

    ConsSheetz locations can get extremely busy, so handling the tasks list, which insures each store is clean and stocked from shift to shift, becomes a daily challenge, but attainable if one stays diligent between sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a chance on some of the older employees when it comes to promotions. We are still just as eager as the younger employees when it comes to advancement within the company. I'm a widow of 1.5 years after being married for 25 years, and I've raised a son, and co-owned 4 different businesses over the 25 years I was married. I, as well as other older employees, can offer a lifetime of experience in prioritizing ,juggling tasks, time-management, making practical decisions, people management, putting others first, tolerance, budgeting, the list goes on. Often, I feel Sheetz only wants people in their 20s-30s in store-level management positions because that's all I see when I stop in at every location I come across as I travel around.. I'm about to test this theory by applying for a management position, so we shall see if I'm on target with my thinking. To wrap this up, I would like to challenge management to take a second look at the older, employees when it comes to advancement. We are up to the task, and the obstacles of sick children, early school release, extra-curricular school events, day care/baby-sitting issues are all things of the past for us. We are wide open...

    All in all, it was a great middle-man

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Shoemakersville, PA

    ProsGreat coworkers, Company values are top notch, Great benefits and paid time-off, great pay for the younger generations

    Cons24-hr scheduling was intense if you had your availability open, but if you didn't have open-availability they would punish you by docking your hours each week, management was very quick to punish and very slow to reward

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make the employee surveys affect the bonuses that each store gets. Everybody lies on them to be able to get a good bonus.

    It's just ok.

    Shift Supervisor (Current Employee)

    ProsVery busy place to work, so your shift usually flies by. A lot of the customers are repeat customers, so you get to know a lot of them by name & look forward to seeing them everyday....you, also, know which ones you want to avoid...lol

    ConsUnless you work strictly day shift, the hrs stink. 3p-mid; 4p - 2a; 3a - 11a... Also, they are understaffed on 2nd shift & weekends, mostly. There are usually only 3 people working from 3p-9p & then it's 2 til mid. It's impossible to get anything done except to wait on the customer, which isn't enough because the cooler needs stocked, the garbage needs done, dishes need done....& then you get a bus & then everyone working needs their break...yeah, right! Basically, you busy your butt all night, only for the next shift to come in & complain that you didn't do enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf your so worried about customer service & hospitality, give your stores more hours & more people on a shift so that they can at least take a decent break on their 9hr. shift & work on the task list that you think we need cuz clearly we don't have enough to do..maybe we wouldn't need a hospitality class then. It's not fun making drinks, subs, running the fryer, & waiting on the customer when there is only 2 people working

    Fun job, but fast paced. Not for everyone.

    Sales Associate, Former Assistant (Current Employee)
    Woodbridge, VA

    ProsA great company to work for. Very flexible with hours. I have worked at many different stores and districts over the past 10 years. And each store is quite a bit different and the customers are usually friendly. Always something to do to keep you busy, usually get along with most of the employees.

    ConsVery strict tattoo policy. In the Northern VA area it is hard for stores to get consistent management in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn the store atmosphere the management needs to be more consistent and be on the same page. I have been at many stores in Northern VA and that is the main thing that is lacking. Also, more communication among the employees from management.

    Good experience, but a crazy boss

    Hourly Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Great Mills, MD

    ProsPay is great! You get a decent bonus every three months and a guaranteed 50 cent raise every year for the first three years. There's an anonymous hotline if you have any issues too.

    ConsBy boss is getting pretty old and so is her attitude. It seems like a lot of the management at the other stores isn't always as great as you'd like them to be (favoritism, etc.) But in a low level job like this, what do you expect?

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemind your store managers to not flip out at employees over stupid things. We're doing the best we can with what we've got. And the constant changes and updates don't help.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frantic, but overall a good experience.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Johnstown, PA

    ProsWorking here taught me how to work in a frantic, fast-paced environment where anything could happen. Literally anything, from shoplifters to gas pump fires. And free drinks plus half off food during your shift.

    ConsThey changed the rules, procedures, and processes every other week for seemingly no reason. It seemed like upper management had no idea what working in the store was actually like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk employees before changing the procedures!

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
