    This convenience store chain is family owned but strictly egalitarian: Any family member who wants to be in a leadership role must complete two years of training and spend a minimum of three years working outside the company. Meanwhile, other employees tout “great benefits” like a free GED program and tuition reimbursement. Read Great Place to Work review here.
