The Altoona-based Sheetz convenience store chain has ranked 85 on Fortune magazine’s list of 100 Best Places to Work for in America.

A Pennsylvania company that’s open every day of the year has once again ranked as a great place to work.

The Altoona-based Sheetz convenience store chain has ranked No. 85 on Fortune magazine’s list of 100 Best Places to Work for in America. That’s down a few notches from last year’s 66th place. They ranked No. 87 in 2017 and No. 97 in 2016.

Fortune says the hourly wages at Sheetz are in the 90th percentile among their competitors, they match 401(k) contributions up to 4 percent, and dental expenses are 100 percent covered up to $2,000 per year. Workers appreciate an internal network that lets them share suggestions.

This is the fifth time in six years Sheetz has been named to the list, and Sheetz is the only convenience store to be recognized.

In Pennsylvania, Sheetz employs more than 10,000 people. Fortune says the chain has 18,900 worked across six states.

The Kimpton hotel chain, headquartered in Philadelphia, ranked fifth on the list, the highest of any Pennsylvania company. They employ 8,813 and operate Pittsburgh’s Hotel Monaco.

Comcast, with 184,000 employees, was the largest company in the state to make the list, landing at No. 71.

SAP America, with offices in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas, took the 28th spot for the second year.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
