    Great pay and benefits,friendly coworkers,fast paced

    Cons

    Management scolds certain employees for not following protocols that they themselves don't follow,while allowing employees they are close to get away with the same things you're scolded for.

    Advice to Management

    Act like professionals! Lead by example! Treat every employee equally!

    I have been working at Sheetz full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Set schedule for all management
    -Competitive pay, great benefits for the industry
    -Senior leadership is relevant and real
    -Great opportunity for career growth
    -Desirable culture from top down
    -Awesome charity in Sheetz for the Kidz,

    Cons

    -Large disconnect between operations (store level) and corporate
    -Operates under pretense of a QSR but payroll is allocated more closely to a C-store
    -HR department, although improving, is grossly disconnected from operations and is perceived as more of an intimidating foe than a friend to store level management.

    Advice to Management

    Culture wise we are on a great path but from an operations standpoint it appears like we spend tens of thousands of dollars devising ways of becoming more efficient with less payroll when other successful QSR's will staff two or three times what we do and all they are doing is preparing food.

    Work with in-store managers more.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Although every day has its own challenges, the job itself has the same demands each day. You're around great co-workers, and great customers daily. You're up and moving around rather than looking at a computer all day.

    Cons

    Your management team greatly dictates whether you love or hate your store... If you hate your store, you have the ability to change it.

    Advice to Management

    Working as a team requires hearing more than one voice.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great 401K, bonuses were also very nice. A lot of other work perks, parties and discounts. Most departments really love their jobs

    Cons

    Direct supervisors never listened. Manager was never even there and couldn't begin to tell you what we did. Micro managed beyond belief. It was just a bad department that no one cared about

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation for your employees. Stop micro managing. And if you're in charge of a department at least be able to tell other people what they do.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, fun fast paced work environment

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement, managers do not do their jobs like they should, hardworking employees often don't receive recognition for their work

    Advice to Management

    Not sure if all stores managers are like this but, managers need to be willing to help employees when the store is getting slammed, whether it's busy making food or ringing register. Also, don't stay in the office your whole shift playing on your phones and doing next to nothing.

    Pros

    - Holiday Parties

    - Good experience

    Cons

    - Terrible work/life balance, constant alerting pushed to phone
    - Not much upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    I worked in the corporate offices for 4 years. At first it was a great place to work and I was paid well for my starting position. After taking on much more responsibility and constantly being barraged with work outside of work hours, I never saw my pay increase from the 4% increase pretty much everyone gets. On the day I handed in my 2 weeks notice, I found out I was being demoted in my review. My review and measurables were outstanding, but I was told by my manager it was an "Obamacare thing" and told me it didn't matter much. They provided me great experience to launch a career in my field, but that was about it. I worked in the IT department that was recently restructured, and we were the first part of the organization to do this, so I'm sure a lot of other departments will be following suit soon. If you get in with the right group, it's a great company to work for, but get hired into an unfavored group, prepare to bust your rear for no return, at least that was my experience.
