PERKZ & PROGRAMS

At Sheetz, we recognize that all employees are an integral part of our workforce, and you don't have to be a manager to receive our great benefits. Not only do we offer a great benefits package, we also offer competitive pay, flexible schedules, career development and quarterly bonuses based on performance and company profitability. Here are a few programs that really capture how unique we are.

  • Above-Average Pay: As we reinvest in our business, our goal is to offer hourly wages in the 90th percentile with other retailers. We ensure that we’re paying our employees a living wage that will sustain a family. Once we factor in our bonus and benefits programs, we’re confident that our compensation is at the top of the chart for retailers.
  • More Full-Time Positions: Sheetz believes that full-time employees are more engaged in their work, thereby delivering excellent Total Customer Focus.
  • Vacation and Personal Days: After a store employee has worked full-time for Sheetz for a year, they earn a one-week paid vacation plus four personal days a year. Two weeks paid vacation are given to those with two to six years of service.
  • Employee Bonuses: Our bonus program is unique among retailers. Every Sheetz employee, from the part-time high-school student to the store manager, is eligible to receive a quarterly bonus.
  • Industry-Leading Benefits: Our healthcare coverage includes medical, dental, vision, prescriptions and disability insurance. Our three wellness centers provide free on-site care, screenings and health coaching to employees and eligible dependents. We also offer stress-management and health-education sessions, and organize quarterly challenges to involve all employees in healthy lifestyle choices. For those without access to our wellness centers, Virtual Health lets them interact with a doctor by smartphone or computer. Healthcare is only part of the package. Our 401(k) retirement savings plan matches employee contributions dollar for dollar—and employees are fully vested upon enrollment. Even part-time employees receive full benefits when they work 30 or more hours a week.
  • Employee Stock Ownership: After working at Sheetz for one year, employees become company shareholders through our Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP).
  • Recognition Abounds: We’re proud of all the ways we recognize and reward our employees. Our annual Service Awards event, we call SheetzFest, celebrates milestones: We give employees with five, 10 and 15 years of service two-day stays at one of two resorts with a guest; those with 20 or more years get three days (plus cash awards). We also give Operational Excellence Awards to our stores, and schedule Prize Patrol events where our executives show up at winning stores to celebrate. To make day-to-day recognition easy, we send our managers Show the Love Kits that include thank-you cards for outstanding efforts, such as exceptional customer service. The kits also have posters for birthdays and work anniversaries and coupons for free food and beverages.
  • Upward Mobility Opportunity: company training allows people in entry-level hourly positions to move up and become Supervisors, Assistant Managers and Store Managers. Store employees can also transition to our support staff. In a typical year we transition about 50 store employees to supporting roles.
  • Educational Opportunity: To encourage our employees to earn a degree, we offer a College Tuition Reimbursement program of $750 per semester ($1,500 per year). Sheetz also partners with 26 colleges and universities to arrange tuition discounts for our employees. What’s more, we offer multiple scholarships to deserving Sheetz employees, their children and stepchildren through our own scholarship program, The Big Joe Scholarship Fund.

Free Drinks and Discounts: All our store employees get free coffee, tea and fountain drinks while they’re on the clock. Store employees receive half off prepared foods during working hours and now receive 10% off everything in the store, whether they’re on or off the clock.
