Business students visit Sheetz headquarters


A group of Shields School of Business students visited the Sheetz Operation Support Center on April 25, touring some of the company’s facilities.

The tour was led by several Sheetz employees, including employee programs director Amy O’Brien, office associate Rachel Glasgow and the creator of the MTO himself, Earl Springer.

“My favorite part of my job is getting to do something different every day,” said Glasgow.

From the company’s human resources activities to the distribution of its products, the students on the trip learned what goes on behind the scenes of a Sheetz store.

The students visited the company’s Distribution Center, Shwellness Center and the OSC, which provides employment to more than 300 employees.

“I get to meet all kinds of people through tours and encouraging new employees and welcoming them to the team is really exciting,” said Glasgow.

“My favorite part of the tour was walking through the Distribution Center,” said freshman Hunter Longenecker.

“I was unaware of just how much technology, coordination and teamwork it takes to get a product as simple as a candy bar to a Sheetz store.”

It took 560 days to finish building the OSC, a facility that occupies 114,830 square feet.

Sheetz currently has 590 stores across six states.
