TULSA, Okla. -- Making its sixth straight appearance on the list, QuikTrip Corp. again was named among Fortune magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For. The chain, which operates nearly 500 convenience stores across nine states, is listed at No. 28 in the 2008 ranking, according to a report by Tulsa World.
Fortune highlighted QuikTrip's paid 30-day sabbatical offered to employees who reach 25 years with the company. The convenience-store retailer also gives a bonus of $1.55 for every hour worked to part-time employees after one year on the job.
The full list will appear in the Feb. 4 issue of Fortune. The annual survey ranks companies on criteria including an independently administered employee survey and an analysis of employee track records, benefit programs and corporate culture.
This November, QuikTrip also landed at the No. 40 spot on Forbes ranking of America's Largest Private Companies. All the companies on the list have at least $1 billion in annual revenues and either too few shareholders to be required to file financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or shares whose ownership is restricted to some group, like family members or employees.
