Sheetz moves up on annual ‘best companies’ list

ALTOONA, Pa. — Sheetz, the family-owned and operated convenience store chain, is among the 2018 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine.

This list, now in its 21st year, recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.

Sheetz was ranked 66th, improving upon its 2017 standing by 21 positions.

Companies opt to participate in a selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire regarding their programs and employee practices.

Great Place to Work then evaluates each company using a unique methodology based on five dimensions, including credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

“This is the fourth time in five years we have been named to this very distinguished list,” said Sheetz President and CEO Joe Sheetz. “That certainly would not have happened without the hard work of our employees — from those who work in our stores, to our distribution centers, Sheetz Bros. Kitchens, corporate offices, along with our truck drivers and maintenance teams.
