Great opportunity to gain experience in the beverage industry.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Inland Empire, CA – January 16, 2017
This company gave a good starting position into the world of the energy drink field. The work environment was an atmosphere of work hard, play hard. Although I would say that although it is a great place to start, career advancement is hard. Great entry level job though.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Az – August 11, 2016
If you want to work for a company that doesnt post open management positions. They just promote their friends in the company. The same people they hang out with on the weekends and posts pictures of it.
I'm pretty sure you don't want to work for a company who has the VP curse at you during a conference call.
Forget about going to HR, there is no HR. It's as if the company hired all their childhood friends to be in charge of major positions.
This company makes up rules as it goes. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone I know.
Field Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – October 24, 2015
This had to be the worst job that I ever had. I don't normally post reviews on jobs, but my hope is to save someone from making the same mistake that I made.
For starters, the management system is horrific. We would receive several messages every week threatening our jobs and/or pay if we didn't perform certain tasks. The problem is that there were only a handful of people who weren't complying to company standards, but instead of approaching those people directly, they threatened everyone.
Then there was pay. As a Field Sales Rep, we were supposed to get paid on the 1st and the 16th of each month. There were times when those days fell on a weekend. Instead of paying us the Friday prior, we were paid on the Monday after. This was done without anyone giving us a heads up about the late payment. And as far as the commission structure, it doesn't appear that anyone knows how it works. I asked my supervisor about commission that I was supposed to receive and he told me verbatim "you don't need to worry about that, you'll get paid when it comes."
Lastly, the companies product is inferior to other energy drinks, yet the heads of the company act is if it's the best product on the market. The reason for the inferiority is that the higher ups don't want to invest in the product. They do have some pretty good skus, however the upper level is more interested in taking home as much money as possible. They don't want to reinvest into the brand.
Overall, save your time and find a company that values your worth because this company is not it. I wouldn't be surprised if thismore... company is either sold, or if it just folds eventually.less
i drove around all day to different locations to sell in our product, i learned all the new flavors of rockstar energy, management was hard to get in touch with being in another state, i didnt have any co workers, most enjoyable was being outside on nice days
Sales force (Former Employee) – NY – October 9, 2014
Ok entry level sales/management position. Great coworkers. Great pay. Not as good as it once was. It has become very locked down, and overly managed making it very difficult to have your own unique sales tactics. This caused most of ROCKSTARS seasoned team to quit and find work elsewhere.
College Ambassador (Former Employee) – San Marcos, TX – June 27, 2013
Good experience, simple, different. You just planned out events, handed out their new drinks and tried to promote the brand. Basically a brand ambassador. No co-workers in the area, worked by yourself. I did though learn about marketing, promotions and event set up. It was entertaining to talk to everyone

I was a campus ambassador for Rockstar Energy Drink which entailed setting up events to promote and expand the Rockstar brand on Towson University's campus. I enjoy setting up and coordinating events and I'm pretty good at running a successful event. I would report to a regional director once a month providing pictures and other audio material to show I was indeed setting up the events.
marketing for such a large company provided great experience.
Fun place to work, great group of out going people
Official Campus Ambassador (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – May 14, 2012
Picked up Rockstar from the Pepsi plant every month, held events (3-4 per month) to promote Rockstar, take pictures and then put the pictures up on the Rockstar website. Also fill out some simple surveys, take pictures of on campus dining areas/snack shops with energy drinks and upload those onto the website as well. Part I least liked was driving out to the Pepsi plant, most enjoyable part was meeting new people and giving out free things! It always makes people's day. Very interesting to learn about advertising/promotional strategies of Rockstar.
Exciting Marketing Opportunity for College Student
Campus Ambassador (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN (University of Minnesota) – March 6, 2012
Working for Rockstar Energy Drink via Youth Marketing Connection was one of the most entertaining and exhausting jobs I've ever taken on. The attention was marvelous but the experience was most beneficial. Rockstar does a great job and how they go about gathering their market research and put employees to work. Whether full time or contract every job in this company is exciting.
