What's a "Weekend" - and 40-Somethings Need Not Apply
Brand Manager (Former Employee) – Nelsonville, OH – March 3, 2016
If you're full-time, expect the company to demand Full-Time. I worked for weeks straight with weekend travel, with no possibility of "comp time" to actually get a day off when weekends were worked. There are lots of talented and passionate folks working at Rocky, but I feel for them. Nelsonville is only 50mi outside of Columbus, but if you're in the creative or marketing fields, don't expect to make anywhere near the salary for comparable positions that you'd find in the city. This may be the reason why easily 90%+ of the marketing folks are straight out of school with little to no experience. Nelsonville is in Appalachia Ohio, and if it weren't for Rocky the town would likely dry up like many other small towns throughout Appalachia.
Aside from the flexible hours in Summer, where you take short lunches and the workweek ends at 2pm on Friday's. Otherwise, near impossible to maintain any kind of sensible work-life balance.
Great people, great products, but ultimately a lousy place to work.
Passionate co-workers, Americana feel to workplace
Zero work-life balance, Zero consideration for worked weekends
