Sheetz to hire up to 100 for new Catawba County stores

Convenience store chain Sheetz will host a job fair Thursday to fill up to 100 part-time and full-time positions at three of its locations in Hickory and Conover.

The fair will take place 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the NCWorks Career Center-Catawba, 3301 U.S. 70, Newton. Applicants can also apply at Sheetz.com.

Experience in retail, hospitality or food service is preferred for sales positions, the company said in a statement Wednesday, and required for those applying for shift supervisor and assistant manager positions.

The exact locations of the new Hickory and Conover stores weren’t immediately available.

Sheetz’s menu features sub sandwiches, salads and specialty coffee drinks that can be ordered via touch-screen terminals in the store.

The company operates more than 500 locations in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.
