Sheetz has announced that it plans to raise the hourly wage for its employees.
Sheetz said that it will spend $15 million to increase the hourly wages of employees without reducing hours for its full-time workers. The gas station company also said it’s still dedicated to hiring as many full-time employees as it can.
“As a family-owned business, we’re committed to attracting, retaining and developing the best people,” Stephanie Doliveira, Vice President of Human Resources at Sheetz, said in a statement. “We believe that paying wages at the upper end of the retail scale is necessary to achieve that goal.”
Sheetz currently has more than 500 stores located across Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina. It employs over 17,000 people and has a yearly revenue of $6.9 billion.
