Lot Porter (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – August 2, 2017
Even with the outlook of being able to learn from anywhere, this workplace does not have much to offer. There is no room for advancement. The benefits package is horrible. The best part about this job is that there are some good people working here.
Technician (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – July 30, 2017
We went to flat rate with a raise but still made less money and I work hard but it does not pay off, You do not get paid to diag warranty work so you are working for free. I worked 99 hour pay period and got 67 hours, either wrong parts, cant find the parts or was given to another customer, so you just wasted an hour tying to make money.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 27, 2017
Good company to work for however they are working through a lot of growing pains. I recommend them as an employer and can honestly say much of what was said in the past about "turn and burn" culture has changed.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – July 18, 2017
The people you work for aren't judgmental at all. They didn't care that I had a unique hair color or tattoos. They do have an open door policy to handle issues and the only thing I would say I didn't really like was the long hours. I loved that I could express myself how I wanted. They truly care about you. I would go back to work for them any time.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – July 16, 2017
Great place to work where you can make good money. The company is terrible when it comes to home and work balance. If you have children forget it. It's all about the money and what you can do for them.
Free soda, coffee and cappuccino
With the demand of the job I wish the lunch breaks would be longer
Good benefits and pay. Bad management and teamwork
Detailer (Former Employee) – Hamburg, NY – June 22, 2017
They had good benefits and good pay, but the management is all terrible and do not care about employees other than when it makes them money. The managers were incapable of figuring out true problem areas and almost always responded with firing employees for no real reason. 0 communication between departments and team members.
Product Specialist (Current Employee) – Saint George, UT – June 20, 2017
I love working with the parts department. There is always something new to learn and study. The managers are great and so helpful with everything. Small enough store to not be overwhelming, but enough store to keep you ony your toes.
Occasional free lunch
When the season is slow, theres not a lot to do ever. Not too many customers come in.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – June 19, 2017
Constantly pushed to sell memberships but nothing is ever good enough. Was laid off after two years, second longest employee at this location, due to "budget cuts" but my sales numbers were one of the highest of the entire team. Even though I was told otherwise, I believe the true reason I was let go was due to my seeking better opportunities elsewhere. Advancement was promised, and then given to someone from outside of the company multiple times. As a job, it was good. Good money, simple retail position. As a company, it leaves much to be desired.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – June 17, 2017
A typical day is 12 hours or more. You work every Saturday and only every other Sunday off. You are constantly on your phone on your off days because they expect you to give out your personal cell number to customers.The manager talks to you like you are worthless with name calling. Selling campers is the easy part. Getting paid for your job is the hard part. They find every reason to dock your pay WHEN they decide to pay you period. They expect you to lie to customers. The atmosphere is unlike any I've ever worked, but will NEVER work again. Unmoral leadership to say the least.
Talking to customers about experiences camping.
Too many to list. PAY for the amount of hours tops the list.
office assistant (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – June 9, 2017
The Camping World Company is a great company, with good benefits. Each location has it's own managers, who set the stage for that locations energy and flow. Depending on how busy a location is can great affect the work experience.
Sales (Former Employee) – Vacaville, CA – June 6, 2017
My employment started well, but new management came in as well as the third pay change within 8-months! Along with his change came a lack of communications, very poor leadership/management of personnel, a lot of customer complaints and perhaps the lowest pay scale for the industry. Advancement is nearly non-existent. Very little to no incentive to reach sales goal(s).
Forgetful. Lazy. Complacent. You'll find the management team (sales) often too busy with corporate directives to effectively lead and manage personnel. Consequently, things get out of hand quickly with employees having to put out the fires. Management has zero accountability for their own failures. Corporate wants "yes" management!
Within the last year customer complaints became a daily issue. Whether the delivery process was far behind time schedule or missing parts and/or mechanical complaints with new units during delivery was an absolute embarrassment! Constant unanswered or returned phone calls from the service or parts department eventually end up on your desk from angry customers.
Accountability- virtually nil! Unless there is a HR complaint of substantial substance you can expect to stay employed. People are constantly late and free to come and go as they feel; which, ensures those with work ethic pay the consequences of having to pick up the slack for others on a continuous basis.
The regional corporate office is located in Layton, Utah. There is very little communications between the 19-stores along the west coast. This lack of supervision and accountability creates a lot ofmore... in-house issues that go unnoticed; which, normally would receive some sort of discipline or personnel accountability at a well managed retailer.less
