    I have been working at Sheetz full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Sheetz typically beats other entry-level, no experience needed positions pay wise. In md it's 10 starting, which isn't bad. If you're a nice person, you have a lot of opportunities to make some good friends. Store meetings are always fun, and I can't wait for the next Christmas party, it's a great place to work if you like a company that will take am interest in you as an employee.

    Cons

    You do have to put in quite a bit of time before the company actually "acknowledges" you, and you get benefits packages. If you're not the greatest in the kitchen, you might get lower hours than you want, but don't worry, there's always (yes, always) an extra shift to pick up. The biggest con I notice is people not being able to work under stressful situations. You WILL be EXTREMELY busy in your kitchen; sheetz might be a gas station, but they operate at a regular restaurant level. The only difference is, other restaurants have two or three dedicated people to do the things that one person will dedicated to do at sheetz, sometimes, but not always, with help. This means stocking multiple units, cleaning multiple parts of the store, and typically filtering a fry machine, all while handling customer orders. Difficult, but not impossible. And in addition to the kitchen duties, expect to help in the barista area, and with customers in line at the register. You might also have to start your job cutting your teeth on overnight shifts, but do well enough and show enough interest and you can move wherever you please, really. Don't expect to move up in the job too quickly, manager favoritism runs rampant at most stores, and don't be surprised to have at least one manager that nobody can figure out how they got their job.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sheetz.

    Interview Details

    Applied online - received a call a few days later to schedule an interview. Came in, was offered a free drink while I waited, manager came out shortly to see me. Interviewed one on one in the office, was very friendly and smooth. I was nervous since I was new to this, but she was nice and noticed as I relaxed. Conversation touched on some casual topics as well before the interview was over and I was told I'd get a call in a week if I had it. Just two days later I got my call back asking to schedule my drug test and other things to get me officially hired.

The company operates more than 360 combination convenience stores and gas stations, mostly in Pennsylvania, but also in five other states (Maryland, North... More
