As Sheetz grows its fleet of stores, it looks to add new employees.
Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz plans to hire up to 250 new employees in greater Pittsburgh by the end of 2012 as it opens new stores and renovates others, Bizjournals.com reported.
Within the next three months, the c-store chain is set to open two stores—one in Ross Township and the other in Lower Burrell—adding 80 new employees
The Ross store is scheduled to open in mid-November with the Lower Burrell store opening its doors by the end of January.
Currently there are 26 Sheetz stores in the Pittsburgh region, and Sheetz has seven more new stores or expansions planned in the area. Those plans include rebuilding and, in some cases, relocating the stores in Springdale, Rochester, Cranberry and North Huntington as well as Ligonier, Bizjournals.com reported.
Sheetz district manager Linda Pacovsky said depending on the store location, the rebuilt stores would employ up to 20 more workers. The stores scheduled for rebuilds are around 20 years old and require upgraded kitchens to meet today’s foodservice requirements, among other renovations.
Sheetz already employs 770 people in the Pittsburgh region. About 70% of the jobs are full-time, including six managers at each store and 30 sales associates.
