Sheetz to Hire 250 in Greater Pittsburgh Area Amid Growth
PITTSBURGH -- Sheetz will hire as many as 250 new employees by the end of 2012, according to a Pittsburgh Business Times report. Two new stores are scheduled to open in the greater Pittsburgh area during the next three months, with plans for seven more to come.
The first new store will open in Ross Township by mid-November, followed by a Lower Burrell location by the end of January. The company will hire 80 employees for these, said Linda Pacovsky, district manager for Sheetz.
The convenience store chain also plans for seven more Sheetz locations to be built or expanded. Stores in Springdale, Rochester, Cranberry, North Huntington and Ligonier will be rebuilt, with some being relocated as well, according to Pacovsky. The stores will hire up to 20 new employees each depending on their locations. The rebuilt stores are each around 20 years old and require upgrades.
"We've outgrown them," Pacovsky told the news outlet. "Our business has expanded."
Seventy percent of the new jobs will be full-time, including six managers and 30 sales associates per store.
