    Pros

    Good pay. Great benefits. Workers like a family. Half price food while in store and free drinks to even take home. Bonuses and extras. Room for advancement. No getting bubble butt sitting at a desk all day.

    Cons

    Work very hard in a fast paced environment. Training and getting to know the store takes a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training system could be much better.

    Pros

    This is one of the few places I have worked where they say their focus is on the customer and they mean it! Working at Sheetz, I have never found myself in the position of having to choose between doing right by the customer and following company policy.
         The management is responsive to your needs for specific days off and can usually work your schedule around them, given reasonable notice. The work is fast paced, but not physically demanding. There are a lot of varied tasks, so it doesn't get boring.
         Training is via a program called Z-Force, a computer delivered, interactive system that gives you an overview and detailed instruction for the tasks that you will be working on with an experienced staff member. The combination of instruction followed by hands on practice is especially useful for making sure everyone is following the same procedures. It also makes you feel more confident when tackling the job for the first time.
         The management is very helpful and supportive. Pay is higher than usual for this type of job and increments happen automatically on your anniversary date. Benefits are generous and are available to full timers (32 hrs) at 3 months. This company also offers benefits to part timers (20 hours) after 2 years of service. Another plus is that this company offers paid vacation time to all employees after their first year; the amount being based on your average weekly hours.

    Cons

    Every workforce has personality clashes. The management at my store does everything possible to keep them to a minimum, without making anyone feel pressured. The only thing I can identify as a negative would be the schedule. When a store is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, somebody is going to have to work a holiday or an awkward shift or two. That is the downside of working retail.

    Pros

    Sheetz goes above and beyond to make sure customers have a great experience, so they teach their employees the importance of extraordinary customer service. They also have a great reward system so hard workers and dedicated employees are recognized for their work.

    Cons

    Fast-paced environment so if you have a hard time keeping up, it's probably not for you. Always introducing new ideas and food items.

    Pros

    Good starting pay, quarterly bonuses and internal promotions.

    Best advice that I can give anyone.
    If you are thinking about working at sheetz, go to the store you are applying to and just watch for awhile. Try going in during several different times if possible.

    The company itself is great and has very clear rules and a good training system WHEN FOLLOWED BY MANAGEMENT. This is where I suggest going to the store first, because some stores do it amazingly and everyone gets along and has fun. Other than it getting really busy at times and people occasionally calling off it can be great.

    On the other hand I have seen stores that do horrible because the management does not communicate or follow the companies rules.

    If you do get a job here I would recommend doing whatever it takes to get Ahold of someone in corporate if you are having an issue in your store. The main issue is that they don't know what goes on in your store. But if you let them know about a major problem and follow up if nothing changes then they will not stand for it and make sure it changes.

    Cons

    Great company, store to store can be drastically different, one store could make you love the company and never want to leave while another could make you quit in weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more hands on approach when an issue is called into the employee hotline.

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working for this company. Everyone at my store was amazing, management and associates. I felt more of a family with the people I spent my shifts with than actual blood relatives a lot of the time. Given the chance, and if this company ever came to central Florida, I would love to work for them again!!!

    Cons

    The only con I have is that I don't work for them any more.
