Today Sheetz, a major restaurant and convenience chain across the Mid-Atlantic, announced extra compensation for its employees. From March 13th to April 23rd, Sheetz will pay its store employees an additional $3 per hour in an effort to continue to support its frontline employees who are working tirelessly through the COVID-19 crisis.

“Our employees are the heart and soul of Sheetz and their commitment to serve our customers and communities as an essential business during this critical time has been nothing short of extraordinary,” said Travis Sheetz, President & COO of Sheetz, Inc. “This special compensation is just one way to express our gratitude during this difficult time.”

Sheetz is also actively hiring store employees as the company focuses on its response to increased consumer demand. Full-time and part-time positions are currently available in both daytime and evening shifts.  

The health and well-being of its team members, customers and the communities remains a top priority as the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve. In response to COVID-19, Sheetz has instituted several changes including suspending self-serve coffee, self-serve fountain beverages, fresh brewed tea, frozen drinks and F’Real milkshakes as well as self-serve bakery items. Sheetz has also implemented enhanced routine daily cleaning procedures with a focus on high touch surface areas such as gas pumps, order points, counter tops, checkout lines and door handles as well as reinforcing and re-training all employees on proper hand washing and hygiene. Additionally, to follow social distancing recommendations, Sheetz’s full menu is available to order and pay on the Sheetz website and through its app 24/7.

    Another whiney myth the cheap seaters like to spread – simply not true, not born out by facts. State staffing has been declining for years and the average employee does the work of several due to that. As a group they are efficient and dedicated, and HD pay was a promised compensation for performance in risky emergencies.

      One month ago Trump said – “We have 15 cases and in a very short time it’s going to go down to close to zero”. We now have over 60,000 cases and over 800 deaths. Is this a myth too Kevin? Or am I being too whiney from the cheap seats?

        > I fail to see what Trump’s failure to act when confronted with a pandemic has to do with this particular issue. Maybe you could make a coherent point that will tie them together?

      If the average employee is “doing the work of many” for years obviously they were over staffed to begin with, or are they disposing of the bodies at night so no one sees the number of the ones being “worked to death” Give me a break!!

        > OR they were PROPERLY staffed before and NOW one person is asked to do the job of three!! Ever occur to you to see it that way? Of course not, cause u aren’t very bright.

          To all the people with cushy state jobs more power to them, just let up on th line than you are being worked to the limit. Look around and be thankful for your blessings and stop the “woo is me” routine.
