Sheetz’s employee handbook states applicants with “obvious missing, broken, or badly discolored teeth (unrelated to a disability) are not qualified for employment with Sheetz.” After an outcry from the public they are now reviewing that policy.

As of February 1 Sheetz has come out with a statement regarding this policy,

“Our culture at Sheetz has always been centered on respect and putting our employees, customers, and communities first. As a family-owned and operated company, nothing is more important than creating an environment that is inclusive and supportive of all of our employees. Recently through employee feedback, we have learned that the smile policy is not aligned with these values from their perspective. We agree. Effective immediately, this policy is discontinued. We are committed to ensuring our policies moving forward are equitable and celebrate the diverse experiences, individual identities, and unique perspectives of our employees.”
