I worked at Camping World part-time (More than 10 years)
Camping World tends to hire and retain some very good people! There is a good sense of esprit de corps among the workforce. Positive People, a great selection of products, and a competent and capable service department make Camping World a success.
Corporate oversight and vision are restrictive and General Mangers tend to move around. My position was assimilated, although (due to my strong online sales abilities) I was offered a full-time sales position which I chose to decline. As a web designer and developer by trade, removing me from responsibilities of Director of Business Development was a short-sighted attempt at cost-cutting. The General Manager responsible didn't last long. I was sorry to be forced out, as I enjoyed my position and the corresponding responsibilities
Advice to Management
Senior Management needs to create more of a team environment that fosters a sense of responsibility, where making changes that are best for the dealership is a collective or democratic process.
Not much of a interveiw when you have years of experience. They are also not interested in your experience as much as if you have worked for the company for a while. They make a lot of promises tat are never kept, so the company is just a revolving door. Have never met an unhappier group of people in my life. everone has been lied to and nothing is ever followed up on. we get a lot of one time customers in all departments. they should stick to selling RV trinkets and get away from service and leave it to professinal companies.
