    I worked at Sheetz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good starting pay, nice hours to start,

    Cons

    They don't schedule enough people for the demand of a friday or saturday night and then it takes the toll on us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire me for 32 hours, make sure I get a consistent 32 hours or more. Plus, there is no way one person should be set to make drinks and fryer. Put one person on each and two on table on busy nights. It's just insanity without.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, they treat employees very well(bonuses,PTO, benefits, vacations), and opportunity to advanced is great! They have a great training program and definitely always on the go when working. I did love my job here before I had other commitments enter my life.

    Cons

    Salaried you will be obligated to work when their are call offs. In a high turn-over business, 12+ shifts are very common. I was married to my job at the age of 21 when I was promoted to Store Manager With bad weather, you are expected to make it in no matter what, because Sheetz does not close. This job is great for those that do no have to come home to someone at night or loves to have a life outside their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they do a great job.

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

    Pros

    A Five Star Operation that continues to keep their finger on the pulse of their consumers with new and expanded offerings for their customers. The look and expansive new store footprints are simply amazing and welcoming for the customers. Culture is a big plus and it makes Sheetz a great place to work and grow forward if you want.

    Cons

    Though I like it fast paced. Sheetz is an environment that many things coming at you at once and its a must to be able to multitask and keep moving. So if this is not for you. You may just wanna come in to have a meal and gas up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the best talent is within the sales staff, and we should continue to fill the bench of the management team with these fine individuals.

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

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To 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.

    I have been working at Sheetz as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Mid 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 ManagementAdvice

    Sheetz 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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Be 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.
