Company Culture

The company culture is sell more or well threaten your job.

Support from management

There is none. Good luck getting anyone to communicate in a timely fashion.

Teamwork

We were not allowed to work together. Period.

Freedom to work independently

You're allowed to work independently all of the time. They will track you by GPS. They will call you out in front of everyone asking why you haven't done something or been to a part of your territory. They will ask for proof that a job was done.

Internal Communication

This is the first company I have worked for who called up the entire east coast sales team, cursed them out, threatened their jobs, and then finished the call by telling everyone to be an adult.

Gender Equality

The men where yelled at just as frequently and as brutally as the men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There aren't any because they come down even harder on people who have been with the company a while because, "they should know better."

Career Development

They do not want you to gain knowledge or experiences that could lead to you advancing with the company. This is a job not a career.

Overall compensation for your work

Made a lot less than competition.

Office / Work Environment

Your work environment is so hostile that employees band together over the latest hostile encounter.

Environmental Friendliness

The bottler, Rockstar, is far from friendly to the employees.
The distributor, doesn't care at all about order the product, delivering the product, or supporting the product.
Customers fight tooth an nail against the product.

Work-Life Balance

You must maintain equipment, off the clock. Order materials, off the clock. Send weekly communication to your team, off the clock. If you are working in a part of your territory that is 3 hrs away, yes it happens regularly, you must clock in and out there. No exceptions.

Company Image

They give off a party boy image. Not professional in the least.

Job Security

Job was threatened quite frequently. Even told that we were all veterans at this point, and that if anyone in the zone wouldn't do our job properly we would not be warned, just fired.

Handicapped Accessibility

There is a lot of lifting and getting in and out of a van all day.

Workplace Safety

This is 100% what you make it. Go into a bad part of town? Lift more than you're capable? Drive safely?

Challenging Work

This is extremely challenging.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire everyone at that top who isn't qualified. Anyone the owner knew in college and has no right being in the position that they hold.

What I like about the company

Free energy drinks?

What I dislike about the company

The "job security"
The lack of trust from within
The lack of career opportunity
The lack of support
The lack of timely communication on sales and important information
The upper management

What I like about the company

Company vehicle, gas card, and phone provided. I believe they have been working on making good decisions to fix the issues listed below the past few years.

What I dislike about the company

Raises are at random and there is no standard evaluation followed by a meeting or discussion on how to improve your performance. Treated like a child on a daily basis... micromanagement is an understatement. Unreasonable expectations. Vacation is only 1 week for each of the first 2 years. Hours of work are unreasonable... leaving home sometimes as early as 4AM, and sometimes returning home as late as 9PM. Hotel arrangements are near impossible - even if you are 3 hours away from home. Need I say more? Very slow to embrace new ideas or suggestions.

Internal Communication

Open communication daily via email, calls, and company portal. Great!

Office / Work Environment

New company iPhone and company vehicle with gas card.

Work-Life Balance

1 week of vacation/year for the 1st three years. No personal days. Be prepared to leave home at 3:30AM every once in a while for meetings 2 hours away.
Average: leave home 6AM-7:45AM, back home 5-6PM.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Annual reviews are extremely beneficial for both parties - money aside. Perhaps create quarterly reviews? I recommend RS HQ creates a standard New Hire Sales Book. The manager/rep that trains them can then make any necessary changes based on the bottlers/territory. I understand most everything is on the app, but this would save a whole (paid) day's work printing and making photocopies instead of training/selling. Just a thought!

What I like about the company

Management is supportive and usually pretty understanding. Good communication.

What I dislike about the company

Micromanagement.
