Sheetz is in the national spotlight as one of a select few businesses to make Fortune magazine’s annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list, debuting at #87.
The only Pennsylvania-based business on the list, Sheetz earned the coveted spot in part for its outstanding workplace practices, policies and procedures. The majority of Sheetz’ total score, however, comes from employee feedback gathered by Fortune through independent surveys. They provide information on company culture and work environment.
“We are really proud that we’ve created a place that people feel good about coming to every day,” says President and CEO, Joe S. Sheetz. “We work very hard to constantly improve the work lives of our associates.”
Sheetz is in great company with some highly respected, well-known companies in the Fortune rankings. Google, SAS, Zappos, Capital One, Nordstrom and Whole Foods Market all are among the group honored with places on the list.
Maintaining and advancing workplace practices and environment is especially challenging for a company like Sheetz, which currently has just over 15,000 employees working at 466 stores, corporate offices and support sites.
“Because of our size we work that much harder to implement comparable and attractive benefits for all,” adds Joe Sheetz. “Our team has been pretty creative though, developing practices that are a custom fit for our family of employees.”
Sheetz consistently lands on state-level lists of best places to work. Four of the six states where Sheetz operates have competitions and the retailer is ranked in all of them. They’ve made the list in Pennsylvania 12 times in a row – the only PA company to do so – and they hold spots in Virginia, Ohio and is currently named #3 in North Carolina.
