ALTOONA, Pa. — Convenience retailer Sheetz Inc. has instituted a $2 per hour wage increase for all of its 18,000 store-level employees effective May 21. This permanent increase equates to a $50 million annual investment and comes on the heels of the company’s $28.5 million investment in store employee wages that it announced in February.

The company is actively hiring for more than 2,000 positions, it said.

Sheetz also has announced a $12 million investment in a summer stimulus program that will provide store employees an additional $1 per hour wage increase from May 21, 2021, until Sept. 23, 2021.

“To attract and retain top talent, we know we need to continue to invest in our employees,” said Travis Sheetz, President and COO of Sheetz. “That investment includes more than just competitive wages. We provide career growth opportunities and a clear path to promotion so life at Sheetz can be not just a job, but a career.”

Through an employment drive in March, Sheetz said it planned to hire more than 2,800 people companywide. That drive also follows an October 2020 initiative aiming to hire more than 3,000 workers.

Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz has 619 c-store in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.
