Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Wood Village, OR – July 25, 2016
Typical day involves throwing over-stock, assisting customers in many different ways, and selling customers a variety of memberships and services. I have learned customer service and team leaderships skills. Management works hard and is always keeping an ear open to their employers. Co-workers could work harder, but are good with customers service. The hardest part of the job is working with extremely rude customers who attack you personally when something doesn't go there way. The most enjoyable part of the day is when I not only achieve, but exceed my personal goals in sales.
Worst experience with an unsupportive management base.
N/A (Former Employee) – Fountain, CO – July 16, 2016
I am not surprised they are once again looking for a lot porter. I spent five weeks there being harassed daily by two lot porters. They did the right thing by getting rid of the one porter, but kept the biggest a-hole of them all, then tried to turn on me instead of addressing the problem the proper way. Service Manager has no backbone and is afraid of doing his job the proper way.
Unless you want to settle for a mindless job that truly has no challenge, go for it.
rv transporter (Current Employee) – Wood Village, OR – July 10, 2016
There is nothing typical about what I do for this company because my assignment always changes I could be local in Oregon and then sent to WA. or Cali, maybe even Idaho. During my time hear I have learn how to be a team player everyones job goes hand in hand from the sales floor all the way down lot porters to bring the trailers out front to me for delivery and then the service department to fix any defects on the trailers. I get along with all my co workers if I need help they are all right there for me, I'd have to say the hardest part of my job is dealing with angry customers, from late deliveries, to things not being fixed like they should but things do happen and everything does get resolved.
Been with the company for a while. Atmosphere has changed from helping customers to pushing memberships, credit cards, and other things that will make the company money. I love helping customers with their needs but hate my upper management beating up all associates on pushing unnecessary products on unsuspecting customers.
Love the retail manager- helpful, knows her stuff
being beat down all the time by the General manager about memberships
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Coco River, FL – July 1, 2016
Too many people work there, the big sales manager's are too busy on the computer. The fact is they have no parking. You make minimum wage. Other sales people ,don't want you there. They are always looking for help.
You must float to get a desk, lot of systems to learn . Too many goofy schedules, you must volunteer ever 90 days 8 hours to some list of Camping World Choice . Which they dont tell you about when hired they want free advertising. You will get Road side assistance. But it's a culture that is fake.
The entire sales force all smoke it's a fish bowl there.
Off the freeway
Lots of systems to learn. Lot of sales people to compete with.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – June 24, 2016
I started as a sales rep with a salary of 500/wk. My first paycheck had one full weeks pay since I started on Friday, the first day of the pay period. I worked 6 days and 46.25 hours, with Tuesday the only day off. My first check was deposited at $257. I had no benefits and they do a a 3% auto enrollment. I know my tax rate is not 45.5%, so they are cheating me. I have requested my pay stub, but they do not automatically give. You have to go to ADP; however, they never gave me a registration number to do so.
Service writer (Former Employee) – Byron, GA – June 15, 2016
Writing up reports on rv's. Working up work orders on what repairs need to be made. Talking with and reporting to manufacturers about warranty issues. I learned to deal with customers as well as business. coworkers and managers were great. Hardest part of the job was making sure the repairs got done in time and to customers liking. the best part of the job was working with great people.
Business Development Director (Former Employee) – Bartow, FL – June 5, 2016
Typical day was to check online system ensure no issues or problems from prior day. Check emails and respond accordingly. Take stock of new units and have pictures taken and uploaded to website. Distribute website requests to appropriate departments. Co-workers were generally very good to work with the occasional person no one wanted to work with. Hardest part of the job was integrating website sales and leads with actual sales floor. This may have changed as it was back in 2008 but for the prior three years it had been a constant battle with may of the individuals. The other departments took it extremely well and ran with any ideas or new procedures but sales was a constant battle. It was however slowly heading in the right direction.
Good Management and decent benefits
Hours flexibility and job culture was not that good
Provides wonderful benefits and excellent salaries.
Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Garner, NC – May 31, 2016
Work was very stressful and hard to find a work-life balance, however the money earned and competitive pay made up for all of the stress. Free lunches, company parties, and felt like you were working with family.
RV Technician (Current Employee) – Lowell, AR – May 29, 2016
Allows me to put to use all of my technical expertise in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, Heating, Air conditioning. Also allows for me to have contact with customers to advise in day to day use of an RV.
There isn't much I can say that's positive about this company. The push of memberships, and product protection plans is ridiculous. The store manager pushes employees to hate working there. The service manager only wants to make sure he hits his monthly goals by closing work that hasn't been performed. The General Manager is a nice guy, buy in the end was inexperienced and only focused on the sales department.
