Who

is ThompsonGas, anyway?

If you’re deciding whether you’d like to join the ThompsonGas team, you’re probably wondering who you’ll be working with, and for. We don’t blame you! We’ve summed it up in three big statements:

The WARMTH of YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SHOP.
THE POWER OF A NATIONAL COMPANY.

When Lloyd and Dortha Thompson created the first ThompsonGas in a little storefront in Boonsboro, MD, they may not have realized it would one day become a coast-to-coast operation. ThompsonGas is the best of both worlds: it’s the warmth and personal touch of a small town ‘Mom and Pop’ business, backed by the power and resources of a national company.

The FREEDOM OF A CANOE.
THE SAFETY OF AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER.

We’re not beholden to a sea of stockholders, and we’re not motivated by short-term financial gains. We’re free to pursue our long-term goals: sustainable growth, consistent and reliable customer service, and security for the families that depend on us–both employees and customers. 

The SOUL OF A 75 YEAR-OLD COMPANY.
THE SPIRIT OF A START UP.

More than 75 years and several recessions later, we are thriving. That’s because we continue to operate under the business principles of trust, service, and taking care of our employees. And we never stop–we’re always innovating and coming up with new ways to make our employees’ and our customers’ lives easier. 

Where

would I be working?

ThompsonGas (and the ThompsonGas family of companies) stretches from coast to coast. We’re always looking to hire the best people and we might be hiring near you.

Not looking to travel or relocate? Some of our positions are remote, too!
