Sheetz has more than 600 jobs to fill in Virginia and Maryland

WASHINGTON — Gas and convenience store chain Sheetz says it has 500 job openings at its stores in Virginia and about 140 openings at its stores in Maryland to fill and will begin open interviews at its stores starting Wednesday.

Full- and part-time openings include store team members, supervisors, assistant managers and store managers. A store manager at Sheetz can make more than $76,000 plus benefits.

Pennsylvania-based Sheetz is listed on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in America, and offers benefits that include 401(k) retirement plans, tuition assistance, adoption assistance and its employee stock ownership plan.

The hires in Virginia and Maryland are part of Sheetz’s current hiring spree to fill 2,500 jobs at its 568 stores that stretch from North Carolina to Ohio.

Last month, equally popular convenience and gas store chain Wawa launched its annual spring hiring campaign with a goal to fill up to 5,000 new positions in the next three months. Wawa, which also offers an ESOP, is hosting what it calls “Wawa Career Wednesdays” at stores through April 18.

Both Sheetz and Wawa are testing the waters with stores that leave out the gas station component. Wawa opened its first urban format store near Dupont Circle in December, with another planned for Georgetown.

Sheetz has now opened four fuel-free Sheetz Cafe locations, all on college campuses, including the University of Virginia, West Virginia University, Penn State University and Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
