America's Best Large Employer 2018 & 2019


Forbes America

SCHEELS is honored to have been named one of America’s Best Large Employers by Forbes for 2018 and 2019. We couldn’t be more thankful to our associates for this recognition from Forbes for two consecutive years.


CEO Steve M. Scheel shares, "We are incredibly proud our associates have recognized SCHEELS as one of the country's best large employers for two consecutive years! While being recognized by these awards is nice, we are much prouder of the fact that our associates and employee-owners enjoy their work and thus are making a career with us. Because of that enjoyment, and the culture our associates create every day in our stores, they provide a magical experience for our customers and the best service in retail."


To determine the Forbes list of America’s Best Large Employers, Statista surveyed 50,000 Americans working for businesses of at least 1,000 employees. Those taking the survey were asked to rate on a scale of 0-10 how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. After that, Statista asked respondents to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list ranks the top 500 large employers that received the most recommendations, and SCHEELS is honored to make that list. 


At SCHEELS, our mission is to be the best retailer in the eyes of our customers, associates, and business partners. We believe if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Our associates strive for excellence and go above and beyond to give every customer the experience they deserve. We are grateful to all our associates and know without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
