We’re not telling you to drop out of college, but…👀
Let’s be honest—getting a higher education can sometimes (often) feel like a major drag, especially when job prospects aren’t looking great. The average cost of college in the United States is $36,000. And even if you do get a job as soon as you graduate, you’re going to spend years paying off that debt.
So what if we told you that you could make a six-figure salary by working at a gas station? But before you head to the Registrar’s Office to give up on your degree, check out all the details on these incredible job opportunities available. 👇
Welcome to Buc-ee’s
Texas-based gas station chain Buc-ee’s recently went viral thanks to a post from the company saying that employees could earn up to $225,000 per year by working for them.
This lead many millennials and Gen Z-ers lamenting online the fact they spent so much money on college when they could have gotten a higher paying job working at Buc-ee’s. Even as a part-time job, you could still make some serious bank.
Buc-ee’s is definitely an outlier when it comes to employee benefits at low-skill jobs. The average salary for 2022 was just over $54,000 per year.
The company also stated that employees are eligible for a 401(k) match of up to 6%, three weeks paid vacation, and healthcare benefits. Overnight employees even earn an additional $2 per hour. By comparison, the average car wash employee earns around $45,000. Even managers only barely make about $60,000 per year.
How To Apply
Buc-ee’s has locations all across the south, primarily in Texas. The company has recently opened their first locations in Kentucky and Tennessee, so they’re quickly moving north.
