GREENVILLE, S.C. — Convenience-store retailer The Spinx Co. has rolled out a new initiative, the Business Management Program, which is open to students working toward a degree in business.
The retailer designed the program to provide students with invaluable experience and a clear career path opportunity, as well as comprehensive tuition reimbursement and weekly paychecks. Students can be employed full or part time at Spinx convenience stores while completing their coursework.
Students will develop skills in effective collaboration, critical thinking and decision-making, business and financial analysis, strategy development, economics and leadership.
“According to the National Retail Federation, the retail industry outpaces both the healthcare industry and manufacturing with over 28 million jobs in the U.S.,” said Tracie Lilly, chief human resource officer at Spinx. “The Spinx Business Management Program allows students to capitalize on that in-demand career path by gaining real-world experience while earning their degree.”
Participants in the Spinx Business Management Program are eligible for a higher starting wage and can take advantage of the Spinx Tuition Reimbursement Program, which helps offset the cost of schooling.
Based in Greenville, S.C., Spinx operates 80 convenience stores in South Carolina.
