Four large and three midsize convenience-store chains are on Forbes magazine’s new best-employers list.

The annual ranking, produced with market research firm Statista, is the product of a survey of employees at American companies.

Midsize employers are organizations with 1,000 to 5,000 employees and large employers are those with more than 5,000, said Forbes, which asked survey respondents to rate their employer and indicate if they would recommend their employer to others.

The 1,000 organizations with the highest scores made the final list—600 for large and 400 for midsize.

Current employees who had worked for the company in the last two years and individuals familiar with the company through friends, family or peers in their industry gave the responses, according to Forbes.

“Greater weight was given to evaluations from current employees and former employees,” Forbes said. “New to the methodology this year was the inclusion of data from the past three years—with more recent data weighted more heavily—to better identify companies that have been rated well consistently over time.”

All survey responses were tallied to produce a score for each company, Forbes said.
