Our History


Bob Sheetz founded Sheetz, Inc. in 1952 when he purchased one of his father's five dairy stores located in Altoona, Pennsylvania. In 1961, Bob hired his brother Steve to work part-time at the store.

It was not until 1963 that the second store was opened under the name "Sheetz Kwik Shopper." It took another five years to open the third store. In 1969, Steve joined Bob in the business as general manager. The brothers planned to expand at the rate of one store per year with a target of seven stores by 1972. In 1972, the brothers literally doubled the size of the company, expanding from seven to fourteen stores. One year later, Sheetz added gasoline pumps and introduced self-serve gasoline to Central Pennsylvania.

By 1983, Bob and Steve had opened 100 stores. The following year, Bob retired and handed over the leadership of the company to his trusted business partner and brother Steve.

In 1995, Stan Sheetz, Bob's son, became president and Steve assumed the position of Chairman of the Board. Stan lead the company through new periods of growth and innovation. Introducing Sheetz fans to touchscreen ordering, Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, Made-To-Go and Shweetz Bakery products, while redefining the concept of getting quality food at a convenience store.

Continuing the successful transition of family leadership, Joe S. Sheetz (son of Bob’s brother Joe M.) became president and CEO in October 2013. Stan moved on to the role of Chairman of the Board. Looking to ensure the unique family connection with the business well into the future, Steve assumed the position of Chairman of the Sheetz Family council.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sheetz (Lynchburg, VA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I received a voicemail asking me to set up an interview. I called back and set up the interview for the time they mentioned on the voicemail. However, when I showed up for the interview, I was told that the entire staff was in a meeting and the employees who were working were actually from another local store location. But the assistant manager from that location went ahead and sat down and interviewed me. She told me that she would give the information to the hiring manager when she returned from the meeting. I left and that was that.
    A week later I receive an email stating, “We’re sorry you missed your interview.” I was confused because I hadn’t missed my interview, but my interviewer had. I called the store and asked if there was some kind of miscommunication. The manager didn’t give me any kind of explanation, but she did set up another interview.
    I went to the second interview, which was supposed to be at 4p. At 4:15p, the hiring manager finally asked me to come back (keep in mind I was standing in the middle of this convenience store with no where to sit down). While I was waiting, another man came in for an interview at 4:15p. My interview lasted ~30 minutes, so I don’t know what happened to that poor guy.
    My interview was laid back and seemed like any other interview (although my interviewer did stop in the middle to take a phone call). I asked when I would be hearing back and was told it would be about a week.
    The next day I got a call asking me to come in for a second (third) interview. I couldn’t come in that week, so we scheduled it for Monday of the week after. The next day, I received a text message asking me to come in and interview on Wednesday, two days after my interview was scheduled on Monday (I hadn’t even been to this interview yet). I asked how many interviews I had to complete, because 4 interviews seemed a little excessive. All I got was a response saying that they looked forward to seeing me. I ended up accepting another offer and having to cancel the 3rd interview.
