    Very respectable company that promotes from within

    Shift Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Lancaster, PA

    ProsThere are always higher positions available and Sheetz prefers to hire from within. Fortune 100 Best Places to Work 2014. Quarterly bonuses. Higher than average pay. GREAT benefits, even for part-timers.

    ConsCan sometimes get pretty hectic and busy. Can experience "burn out" and times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo corporate: Consider giving more hours to stores. Your employees will feel less burnt out. Also your customers will be more likely to receive their orders in a timely manner. It's very difficult to get orders out quickly on a Saturday third shift with one supervisor and two employees. Especially when there are 20+ people waiting.

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

    Contract support

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHard working ownership expecting the same from employees and contractors as they themselves demonstrate.

    ConsMid level management manipulations of information to executive levels of current needs at store and operational support levels, in order to insure larger bonuses for themselves now, while problems get pushed to the budget of another department, but ultimately affecting the overall company's cost savings objective

    Advice to Senior ManagementSheetz is a wonderful company but has become a very large ship to navigate as efficiently as it once did, where better understanding of the engine room operational tactics, from the ship's bridge (command center) is important now more than ever.

    In the retail industry, Sheetz ranks better than average as a company.

    Salesperson (Previously Shift Supervisor, I Year) (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros-higher than minimum wage
    -opportunities to advance
    -benefits such as health insurance, 401K, quarterly bonuses, vacation time, employee recognition events

    Cons-abnormal schedule
    -open 24/7/365 (good for getting hours, not good for having a "normal" life)
    -encountered bad attitudes from some (not all) co-workers and managers

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe accountable and lead by example. If you work hard, others will follow. Be the clear leader, not boss, of the store and make it known that there will be consequences, as well as rewards, to behavior and work.

    Decent Pay but not worth your energy

    Shift Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Clarks Summit, PA

    ProsDecent pay, open 24 hours so more positions available, half off food while on the clock

    ConsManagers are unreasonable, including district manager, higher ups don't care about the peons who work at the store level, all they care about is the bottom line

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont treat your people like crap if you want to run an effective company

    Good to employees but low starting wages at corporate level.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsLow 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.

    Shift Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Hummelstown, PA

    Pros#3 Best employer in NC. Encouraged to have fun at work. Company is quick to acknowledge and appreciate hard work.
