Sheetz to invest more than $15M to raise employee wages

ALTOONA, Pa. — Sheetz Inc. employs over 17,000 people throughout more than 500 convenience stores.

ALTOONA, Pa. — Sheetz Inc. announced it plans to invest over $15 million to raise wages of store employees across the company, without cutting back on the hours of full-time staff, according to CSPnet.com.

The plans are to further demonstrate the convenience store retailer’s “commitment to offering employees a great place to work and a competitive total compensation package,” stated the article.

Sheetz employs more than 17,000 people throughout over 500 c-stores, reported the article.

Especially within the retail and food service industries, continued the article, the debate regarding minimum wage has increased in recent years.

“While other businesses in the industry might have to cut back on employee hours or new hires as a result of wage increases, Sheetz is working hard to provide full-time hours to as many employees as possible, providing them with an opportunity to earn more and secure health benefits,” said Stephanie Doliveira, vice president of human resources at Sheetz, in the article. “As a family-owned business, we’re committed to attracting, retaining and developing the best people. We believe that paying wages at the upper end of the retail scale is necessary to achieve that goal.”

Doliveira explained in the article that Sheetz also provides its employees with increases based on tenure, health insurance benefits, quarterly bonuses, reimbursement for college tuition, paid time off, adoption assistance and more.

The company was recently recognized by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine as No. 8 in the “20 Best Workplaces in Retail,” informed the article, which was based on the quality of Sheetz’ pay and benefits, support of its employees’ personal lives, advancement opportunities, management ethics and the “day-to-day respect for staff.”

Based in Altoona, noted the article, Sheetz operates over 500 c-stores throughout Ohio, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
