    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.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Sheetz part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wage increases each year, flexible hours and schedules, decent management and everyone is treated well. There is a good call off policy and numerous opportunities to move up within the company if you want to.

    Cons

    Some co-workers can be quite lazy or rude, hours fluctuate each week and when you work fluctuates as well.There is sometimes a general disregard for other shift times wherein other shifts have to pick up slack from lazy employees. Each store is vastly different though so it's hard to generalize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize hard work regardless of tenure with the company.

    Pros

    pay and benefits are decent

    Cons

    A lot more to get done working 3rd shift and less employees.. First shift gets all of the hours even with second shift being the busiest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep mentioning "total customer focus", and "hospitality", yet don't want to spend the extra money for more employees per shift for us to fully be able to give this to customers.

    I worked at Sheetz full-time

    Pros

    OKAY job if you're in college and looking for something part time. They pay well for part time. This job can literally suck so much at times, but it is motivation to finish school :). Employee for 4+ years.

    Cons

    None of the coworkers have any life goals. I was looked down on for going to school and bettering myself. I heard multiple times throughout my college career, from management and workers alike that I was wasting my time going to school. They told me that I'd never find a job and blah blah blah. Funny now that I have a salary job that I love doing and they're stuck making MTO's. Be aware that before you take a job like this that the coworkers have little to no ambition and do not respond well to others success. (This may have been an isolated issue to my Sheetz)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your personal problems at home. Just because you had a bad day, there is absolutely no justifiable reason to take it out on your employees. I worked here for over 4 years and I've never been more happy quitting. I am finally happy again. The negative atmosphere is not a place that breeds success.

    Message to upper management: You claim Sheetz is a family company, yet you take employees away from their families on EVERY holiday so you can make more money. Also, you do not work holidays.... Hmmm, HYPOCRITICAL.

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

    Pros

    I love that we get paid breaks and that the pay is good too! I've met Adam SHEETZ recently he was sooo nice and down to earth! Best job I have had to date. Looking forward to helping the company reach its goals.

    Cons

    Workload could be a little much but it keeps you busy and that's never a bad thing. There are some personality clashes. Sometimes Co workers like to compete instead of work as a team but you probably find that anywhere you work.
