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

    Pros

    1. Great benefits
    2. Get starting pay and a 50 cent raise every year
    3. 50% off food while on the clock
    4. Free coffee and fountain drinks.
    5. You meet really interesting people.

    Cons

    1. Hours. They can vary on the time of year
    2. Call offs. There are a lot my phone is full of texts saying X called off do you want to come in?
    3. Sometimes I feel like the labor I do isn't worth my current wage
    4. Under-staffing expect to not be enough employees on your shift
    5. Constant changing of polices to make work more difficult
    6. Holidays Being 24/7/365 meaning that you work on all holidays. While the higher ups get to stay home and enjoy their holidays
    7. Same radio in every sheetz store. If you don't like hearing the same 15 songs over and over again this isn't the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher ups need to listen to store level more
    Try asking employees if a new police or changing procedures is a good idea
    Closing the kitchen on holidays

    I have been working at Sheetz part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hours and flexibility. Fast-paced environment.

    Cons

    Almost always understaffed. Beware of working weekends or 2nd shift. Their sales are going up, but they keep cutting store hours. If one person calls off, prepare for an even-worse shift!

    They also have cut part-time benefits. Not good for college students anymore. Just more unneeded stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more staffing. With such a complex MTO menu, greater sales, and pricier food, why aren't you putting more people on shift?

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Sheetz full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    really enjoyed the flexible schedule. work load is more than other jobs, but in the right store it is a lot of fun! the bonuses are a nice perk and other incentives like gift cards and free items are too. Most of the customers are awesome.

    Cons

    some people don't accept responsibility and put pressure on others so they don't have to work. feedback and coaching is lacking, as is communication between shifts. the company says it's a family company, but they really are only concerned about the bottom line. even if you are a great worker, you might not make advancement if you aren't well liked by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees when they have something to say. working with the needs of your team brings people together, if it's not taken advantage of. it would be nice to feel like someone actually cared about you as a person instead of just results.

    Amazing Employer and Company

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

    Pros

    My store-level management is amazing- supportive, encouraging, and positive. They do not dwell over mistakes and the company as a whole has been very receptive to both customer and employee feedback. They have been extremely understanding and flexible with scheduling. The team is, for the most part, extremely friendly and willing to help each other out. Overall, this is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Shifts can change at a moments notice due to call-offs and you are often brought in on your day off. You can also be expected to work opposing shifts that make it hard to have a personal life and stable routine. It is the nature of the job though- fast-paced, energetic, and sometimes chaotic. Sometimes, there is a lack of communication between management staff that can result in misunderstandings and problems. The job is often stressful for both management and team members which causes tension.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that your employees are working incredibly hard to bring your vision for this company to life. Once you become familiar with a shift it becomes as if you are locked into it and it is hard to convince management to move onto another one.

    Pros

    Decent Atmosphere, Easy job, okay hours. Calling off is real easy, management has no problem trying to work with you. Most of the managers were fun to work for.

    Cons

    a "family" company doesn't always mean it's a good thing. Had a friend get fired over a satanic comment on the company's employee forums, so if you're against god, don't say anything.
