ALTOONA, Pa. -- For the third year in a row, Sheetz Inc. has been named one of the top 10 large places to work in Pennsylvania, this year ranking No. 4.
"These honors are a tribute to the hard work and spirit of our employees," said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO for Sheetz, which operates more than 300 stores throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina. "All of us in the Sheetz family have great respect for our employees because they are always focused on doing the right things for our customers."
Gov. Ed Rendell and the Great Places to Work Institute named Sheetz as one of the top 10 "Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania" for its family-oriented style, flexible atmosphere and excellent employee benefits. The Altoona-based company employs more than 5,700 people in its 185-plus Pennsylvania locations.
The award is based on a random survey of the eligible business's employees and an independent judging of a prepared entry detailing the company's work environment, employee relations and benefits program.
With its award at the state level, Sheetz is now eligible to be named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 100 employers in the country (January 2005 edition).
