    Pros

    The culture and people make this company an excellent place to work. Further, their willingness to hear and incorporate new ideas is something that will position Camping World for long term success.

    Cons

    So far, I can't say anything regarding cons. There might be a lack of process in some areas, but nothing that causes issues. I think corporate culture and dealership culture are different -- from a corporate perspective things are great, but it seems like some employees clash with dealership culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being responsive and creative. The company is doing a great job making employees feel appreciated. The biggest charge to management is to make sure employees at the ground level feel just as appreciated as employees at the corporate level.

    Pros

    After 4 years I can tell you the best part of working for camping world is the end of your shift Or your 2 days off.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the clique you are treated like dirt no matter how hard you work no matter how good your are at your position you are nothing. If you dare complain to their HR department you will be in a living hell for your duration or until they can make some trumpet up bs to fire you. Membership sells are ridiculous the goals are ridiculous and even if you can meet the goal by pressuring our poor customers your pay out is little. We are expected to cashier, unload the truck put away everything from the truck help on the sales floor while running back to register to pressure customers to buy a good sam or roadside or credit card or whatever then run back to do freight face and clean store while being treated like dirt. Management is a complete joke from not knowing how to write a simple schedule to letting his store fall apart as long as his favorite employees are happy he is happy. Seriously !

    Advice to Management

    Wake up Marcus!! you preach on you tv show people product process you make me laugh your own company is broken in all 3 ps !! The outside world watches your show and thinks how wonderful you are. We watch and know what a joke it is. You have lost sight of your company and your people for the camera. Marcus clean house and start from the top go to every store and talk to the employees the ground floor hard workers not the managers the real workers.

    Pros

    The only "pros" to the job is the pay check, even if it feels like pennies compared to all the hours you will work on salary.

    Cons

    Literally everything. Benefits are horrible, the CEO is to busy with his new television show to care about the business, management would be better off if they were intoxicated monkeys. Customers are treated like garbage until they start to complain, and once they start complaining everything is given to them at no cost. Upper management doesn't care at all about store level employees. You will be worked until Camping World takes your soul and finally realize you are better off working for Satan.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring about your television show are start taking care of your employees, because soon they will all realize how horrible your company actually is and leave you in the dust. Also stop looking at your store management and look at your regional management because you have some issues there.

    Pros

    Very fast paced from March through October and always something to do. Enjoy making life long friends not only with employees but also the customer base who you will find to be a unique entity and come in often.

    Cons

    The winter is really slow so you better make your money during the peak camping season and beach season. Low salary but make up with commission. Benefits are middle of the road and nothing spectacular.

    Advice to Management

    Be precise in your goals and expectations, stick with them and don't flip flop on a daily basis. There are just too many chiefs and not enough Indians
