QuickChek Earns Best Place to Work Distinction in Two States
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. -- QuickChek Corp.'s dedication to its employees is being recognized again -- and in more than one state this year.
The convenience store retailer was named one of the "Best Places to Work in New Jersey" for 2013 after being named one of the "Best Places to Work in New York State" in January. The independent Best Companies Group evaluated and ranked nominated companies in both states whose practices benefit that state's business, economy and workforce.
This marks the fourth consecutive year the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based company has been named to the "Best Places to Work in New Jersey" list compiled by the weekly business journal NJBIZ. The list recognizes the state's top employers who show a dedication to their employees' growth and quality of life. QuickChek ranked 18th in the large company category for companies with 250-plus employees.
The company previously made the list in 2010, 2011, 2012 and received its 2013 award on April 25 in a ceremony at the Hilton East Brunswick.
This year also marked the first time QuickChek made the New York State Society of Human Resource Management's list of top employers. The c-store retailer, which operates a dozen locations in New York's Hudson Valley, came in 13th in the large company category and was honored at a ceremony held April 30 at the Albany Marriott.
"We are very proud to be named one of the best places to work in the two states in which we serve," said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, who was inducted into the Convenience Store News Hall of Fame in 2012. "With over 3,500 team members in over 130 stores, we strive to create a positive experience and fun environment where core values are nurtured, hard work is rewarded and leadership is cultivated."
QuickChek's typical new store generates approximately $1 million in tax revenue and creates 30 new jobs in the local economy.
As of January, QuickChek Corp. operated 133 locations throughout New Jersey and southern New York, including 12 pharmacy stores and 37 locations with fuel.
