ALTOONA, Pa. -- Sheetz Inc., with more than 275 convenience stores in the Mid-Atlantic region, was named one of the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania by an independent group of auditors that track the state's employment.
The award program, created in 2000 by the Ridge-Schweiker Administration, is the first of its kind offered by a state. The program is a public/private partnership of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, Team Pennsylvania Foundation, Kuntz Lesher LLP, Central Penn Business Journal, the Great Place to Work Institute, and the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry.
The survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.
The Best Places to Work in PA program is made up of 100 companies split into two groups: 50 medium sized companies (50-250 employees) and 50 large sized companies (more than 250 employees). Sheetz was named honored in the large category. Approximately 250 companies were judged in the category.
Sheetz will be recognized by the groups at an awards ceremony Dec. 5 in Harrisburg, Pa. during which the rankings will be revealed.
