    Pros

    They pay really well and everyone qualifies for a bonus every quarter. Yes its an insanely busy job but they do pay well above most other places. Benefits are great medical dental and vision.

    Cons

    The only con is thay it is open 365 days a year 24 hrs a day which means you always have to work holidays. Sometimes balancing family and work is hard.

    I worked at Sheetz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Quarterly bonuses based off of job level
    - 10% store discount up to $10 saved/mo.
    - Decent stepping stone to build career
    - New office building and daycare coming in late 2017
    - Gym and wellness center in Claysburg
    - Culture that attracts friendly people
    - Relaxed dress code

    Cons

    - Apps & Dev employees regularly leave to earn over 50% more base salary in a nearby area
    - Career path entirely focused around years of experience - creates no incentive to go above and beyond
    - Time tracking in several places which is reviewed by management daily
    - Too much process for such a small IT dept.
    - Unmarketable titles
    - No telecommute
    - No sick days

    Advice to Management

    - Promote and give raises based on value brought to the dept., not solely on years of experience. Don't let people dragging their feet max out the headcount for higher levels.
    - Work to elevate IT's standing within the organization. Staying under budget only proves you already have the resources you need - show them what you can accomplish with more.
    - If you can't compete with pay, align your benefits with more forward-thinking companies. There is no reason to not offer telecommute and similar benefits.
    - Don't micromanage - show that you respect and trust your employees and it will be reciprocated. Let them show you they deserve the freedom.

    Good pay, fast day lots of friendly customers, opportunity to change people's day

    Cons

    Work all holidays and not enough hours to get at times, my manager knew I wanted to move up but moved up 3 new employees instead who didn't even know work procedures

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick favorites keep your eyes open for employees dedicated and who want to learn or who continue to do extra responsibilities. They are the ones who will grow with the company and who care about the production and sales drive.

    Pros

    Quarterly bonus, corporate trips, competative pay

    Cons

    No set work schedule, little flexibility

    Advice to Management

    I work in a department that deals with technical support for the stores in the company. We maintain technology and other equipment throughout the stores. This in itself isn't a bad job. but we're often thrown into roles of other departments after hours with no change in pay. Because the company itself is in operation twenty-four hours a day there's no shift differential either. The department also takes on a customer service role as well if they're too short-staffed to handle the call volume. The customer support staff is reduced after five pm to one person usually, so we get put in a lot. With this, if we question it or raise concerns they take it as complaining or refusal to do our job. This turns it into a hostile work environment more often than not because they threaten negative action against us, (e.g, write ups, terminations).

    The shifts in my department are four - ten hour days per week. The days are not set so there's always a possibility that you can work eight days straight without overtime. Normally we're supposed to have every other weekend off but I typically will receive one weekend off per month. I've sought different shifts as they were available and have been passed up each time by newer employees.

    If you happen to get into a department that isn't required to be a catch-all, the company itself isn't terrible. We do get quarterly bonuses, we have a health care facility on campus with a full gym, there's a day care center for $33/day if needed. The medical benefits aren't terrible. There's dental and vision too.
