Sales (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – January 30, 2018
As a sales Associate you will find that you have to move a LOT of campers to get over the 640 dollar compensation that you are told you will make. This can happen but not on gross but on what is called a mini. The least amount you will make on any deal. If you move a 75000 dollar Travel Trailer you will find more often than not that you will only make a mini. There is no gross left after the set sales price that all the customers are allowed to cut to death just to move a trailer. My advice? Work anywhere but here so you can make money on your gross.
Expect to make 640 every two weeks unless you move a LOT of product
Technicians with the company longer got priority over newer technicians, time was not paid for writing up repair orders
RV Service Technician (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – February 8, 2019
Starting as an Hourly technician at Camping World, pay was good and as long as you showed up when you’re scheduled and got work done you’d have a check worth what you did during that pay period. Moving to Flag rate, however, showed how the company gave higher paid and more experienced techs majority of the work, leaving little for newer flag rate techs, causing me personally to sit around with unpaid hours waiting for a new repair order or anything that’d be flagged to me. Warranty work is where anyone coming into Camping World should be worried as manufacturers do not like to pay much time for repairs, no matter how detailed the photos or write up is. I personally observed technicians breaking additional parts or making it look like parts were faulty to gain hours with no to little work actually involved. Do not work for this company unless your life actually depends on it

Salesperson (Former Employee) – Louisville, TN – February 3, 2019
Was "mock-fired" because I didn't say they're verbiage verbatim. Then when I said alright fine, manager pulled me in and asked me to stay. Never gives praise, only criticism. I was hired on with 6 other people. All but 1 has left for a different career. I enjoy sales but this is a very hostile and competitive atmosphere. Favorites get the hot leads of course.
Marketing Advisor (Former Employee) – Kaysville, UT – January 31, 2019
A typical day at work marketing for camping world was taking pictures of RV's and posting the pictures online for customers to see. I would help tidy up the RV's and make them look ready to be shown to customers.
HR Assistant (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – January 28, 2019
CW is working through challenges, but being proactive and going in the right direction. I think there needs to be more hands on leadership on the core business. Often times the leader seems more focused on other ventures than CW.
BDC Manager (Former Employee) – Fountain, CO – January 24, 2019
Spent a year and a half getting promised advancement and first thing that happened when I mentioned it, “irts better we part ways”. #1 in the region to no job. They are not looking for success, they are looking for someone to talk football with and if you don’t fit that mold, they show you the door. Watched 3 different people leave due to the fact management just didn’t want them around. Successful or not, at any time you can be let go. But don’t do your job and you are safe. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
RV Technician (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – January 23, 2019
I personally loved Camping World, sure it could be difficult at first if your new to the job but if your skilled like I am it’s a breeze , I always took the time to train or give assistance to new employees, Sometimes people mis judged Camping World it’s a Corporation and they have rules to follow once again personally it’s what you put into reflects how you can adapt to the environment around you it’s is a competitive work site surrounding you at the complete time you just got to jump in and prove to yourself that this is a peace of cake (easygoing) atmosphere
OEM Parts Coordinator, Receiver/Warranty Admin (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – January 20, 2019
Management tells employees what they want to hear to keep them, but when time comes to act on promises they never deliver. Management falsify paper work and prematurely closes work orders to make numbers look good to upper management. Company only cares about whatever it takes to make their wallets fatter. Very dishonest to customers on a daily basis. No recognition for honest,reliable, hard workers. No training, always have to figure the job out for yourself.
