CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Circle K plans to add 20,000 new employees in the United States to its current team ahead of the summer season. Throughout the pandemic, the global convenience store chain has kept its doors open and worked hard to make it easy for its customers by providing essential services such as fuel, food and beverages. And as business starts to return to normal, Circle K is ready to expand its team.

“Business is coming back, traffic is getting back on the road, and we are preparing for the future by growing our Circle K team. Our mission is to make our customers’ lives a little easier every day, and we do so with fast and friendly service. If you love retail and love serving customers, apply today and come grow with us,” said Brian Hannasch, president and CEO, in a press release.

Open positions include customer service representatives, assistant store managers and store managers. Circle K also has numerous opportunities at its service centers, which support the c-stores, including positions in maintenance, fuel transportation, accounting, auditing, data analytics, IT support and more.

Other convenience stores have announced concentrated hiring ahead of summer, including Pilot, which held a virtual hiring day in April; Sheetz, which hired thousands on March 31; and Wawa, which began a hiring spree in late March.

At the recent NACS HR Forum, speakers discussed the importance of building inclusive workspaces to attract new talent, as well as some of the best practices for hiring in 2021, including how to hire virtually.
