SPINX, a S.C.-based convenience store and gas retailer with nearly 80 locations and 45 car washes across the state, announced that it has established a new Regional Learning Center at Trident Technical College in Charleston. This Center will provide local SPINX associates with extensive onboarding and entry-level training, known as SpinUp. For four days per week and every other weekend, this program will allow associates to gain beneficial experience before entering the field to serve the needs of on-the-go customers.

"We are excited to have Spinx on our campus as they continue to grow in the Lowcountry,” said Marshall Connor, assistant director of business services in the college’s Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development. “Trident Technical College is committed to serving as a catalyst for personal, community and economic development in our region, and we look forward to working with SPINX as they train their next generation of employees."

Since SPINX’s expansion into the Lowcountry, Trident Technical College has been an incredible resource. The facilities and space at Trident Tech will make it convenient for new associates to receive orientation and training within close proximity to SPINX locations in the region.

“Trident Tech has been working with us since we first entered this market, and we appreciate their continued support,” said Cheryl Szczesniak, executive vice president of human resources for SPINX. “We are able to use their center for recruiting purposes, and now we will be able to offer real job training at a center that is dedicated to education and conveniently located to our stores.”
