    I have been working at Barstool Sports part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great opportunity to expand knowledge about social media marketing and operations with a high level of autonomy. Made connections and gained opportunities with important people at Barstool Sports. This is a great path for any college student looking to get a foot in the door.

    Cons

    Demanding content production requirements take a decent amount of time and energy but are ESSENTIAL for account growth. Don’t take this job if you can’t commit the effort. Managers appeared disorganized at times, but who’s surprised by that...

    I have been working at Barstool Sports as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enables you to run your own segmented marketing campaign with an incredibly unique and quickly growing sports media company
    Great if you are passionate about their entertainment style
    Connections to the guys in NYC
    Opportunity for Summer internships

    Cons

    Very unorganized and shoots from the hip
    Few legitimate job opportunities will arise from the main office in NYC

    Advice to Management

    Respect the value of hardworking interns more by developing a reasonable incentive program

    I have been working at Barstool Sports full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Developing relationships on your school’s campus is the only positive part of working this position but even at that extent, you’re are expected to go out of your way while working for free.

    Cons

    Working for no pay on top of attending college classes. There is no recognition or loyalty whatsoever across the Viceroy program and the promise of future jobs is a lie. Barstool makes hires based on controversial people, not the ones who help build their brand for free. Overall a highly dissatisfying work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the college students who work remotely for free and deliver most of your content to you. Treat all employees with respect.

    I worked at Barstool Sports as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Random pop up of celebrity's or athletes for their radio show. Everyone seems chill around you, as well as guests.

    Cons

    If your not from their original staff of Boston, they basically don't care about you. If your either intern or simply new, you don't have a desk let alone a workspace but a random couch if your lucky. Did I mention they don't pay? Yep.

    Advice to Management

    Structure new employees what their duties are instead of a sink or swim environment.


  7. "This place really takes advantage of the intern loophole by hiring a bunch of us and not paying any of us."

    I have been working at Barstool Sports as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun office environment. Mostly play and little work. Office is new and they are growing very rapidly because all revenue is saved and definitely not being paid out to the majority of employees.

    Cons

    Often berated in front of entire office. Very little to no training and just thrown in the water and you either sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Start a training program. Don't keep some employees solely because the fact that they have been there for a long time. Some of these "early employees" are the least liked and causing some long time readers to despise them and want new faces.
