QuickChek Named a Best N.Y. Workplace for Fourth Year
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. — QuickChek Corp. was named one of the Best Companies to Work For in New York State for the fourth consecutive year. The convenience store chain was honored by the New York State Society for Human Resources Management and the Best Companies Group, an independent firm managing Best Places to Work programs around the country.
QuickChek is one of a few companies to be honored in two states, having also been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey for five consecutive years by NJBIZ magazine.
"We are committed to being a great place to work, a great place to shop and a great place to invest," stated QuickChek CEO Dean Durling. "We strive to create a positive experience and fun environment where core values are nurtured, hard work is rewarded and leadership is cultivated. As a privately-held company, we can move at our pace and implement programs to ensure we attract, retain and develop the best people as well as empowering them to be successful."
The statewide Best Companies to Work for in New York State survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment whose practices benefit the state's businesses, economy and workforce. Survey components include employee satisfaction and engagement.
Family-owned QuickChek employs more than 3,700 people at 143 locations in New Jersey, New York's Hudson Valley and Long Island. It invests in its team members by offering starting pay that has been above the New Jersey and New York state minimums for the past eight years and by offering numerous career opportunities, the company said. All of QuickChek's district leaders and most of its vice presidents began their careers working in a local store.
Additionally, full-time employees receive a variety of benefits, including medical, dental and vision; life insurance; a 401(k) savings plan; fitness center reimbursement; and even pet insurance.
"When you come into any of our stores, the store leader manages that store as if it is their own," Durling said. "This helps them connect with our customers on a personal level, to create that neighborhood shopping experience, and provide the outstanding customer service for which we are known."
