Ahead of the summer sales rush, EG America is hiring 7,500 employees across its 10 banners—Certified Oil, Cumberland Farms, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Loaf N’ Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Sprint Food Stores, Tom Thumb and Turkey Hill stores.

The company is hiring for full and part-time guest service associates, food service leaders and managers, store support roles and CDL drivers.

“We are thrilled to welcome motivated, friendly and hard-working individuals to join our growing teams, many of whom will stay on well past this summer and grow their careers here at EG America,” said Kieran Carr, director of talent acquisition. “During these busy summer months, our stores across the country see a significant increase in traffic and activity, so it’s an exciting time for jobseekers in these communities to join our team.”

EG America gives employees the opportunity to “pursue a sustainable and successful career through structured, hands-on training and development plans, including a ‘Manager in Training’ Academy for ‘future leaders’ pursuing store manager roles who want to operate and grow successful businesses. The company also has a strong commitment to promoting from within,” EG said in an email.
