    I worked at Camping World full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays better than most retail jobs at $12.25 an hour, plus bonuses for selling various services at the register. Also provides benefits.

    Cons

    The pressure to sell memberships and other services is never-ending. They don't take the slow season (fall/winter) into account in your percentages. You have to constantly sell memberships and renewals, to the point where customers get very angry at being pressured to renew or join.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of memberships altogether. Get rid of protections plans. Get rid of the credit card. They all just make customers angry and we take the brunt of it. The Roadside assistance is fine, but sell *every* level at the register, not just the basic.

    Pros

    Not many, the hours are good, some of the customers were fun to work with, as well as the other employees, but that's about it.

    Cons

    Shotty management at best. Lied about how pay works, and no budging off that. No manager was willing to help.

    Pros

    Camping World is a great place to make some money if your people skills are up to par and your good at selling their many services.

    Cons

    Camping World is usually always understaffed, the management team (all departments) needs immense improvement. They reprimand you if you don't keep your service sales at a set percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind to your associates and get rid of The GTT!

    Pros

    Decent Working Hours And Pay.

    Cons

    Advancement Opportunities, Frequent Pay Changes, Extremely Poor Customer Service After The Sale, Employees Taken Advantage Of

    Advice to Management

    (1) There's more to a management position than sitting at the sales desk all day. Walk the lot and look at the condition of the units for sale. Flat tires, missing vent screens and trim/molding, dust and dirt, and overall condition of the units you are selling. Additionally, you should be holding yourselves accountable to equal and fair treatment of all- not your buddies or personnel that sell to your expectations. Far too often people are allowed to come and go as they please without fear of consequences. Either you are blind to it or accept it as normal. (2) Communication is poor at best. Management needs to be held accountable for the timeliness of deliveries and service. Parts should be ordered instead of saying they are and nothing shows up. (3) Camping World should be setting the example for both (1) and (2) above. Quit making excuses for your inability to make the changes or ensuring things are done right the first time instead of waiting for additional customer complaints. Employees don't quit because of the job. They quit because of managers or management of personnel!

    Pros

    The control of the up system in place makes it fair and creates several opportunities for sales

    Cons

    I was looking forward to a career in sales here until nobody had an answer as to why my paycheck was half of what it should have been....I'm still trying to get paid what's owed to me!

    Advice to Management

    General Manager is a good dude...a little hot under the collar when dealing with numbers...but...hey...it's sales. Training seemed on point....did I mention I need Camping World to contact me about my paycheck? !?!

    I have been working at Camping World (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing, I rip old people off for a living.

    Cons

    Fraud and lying to customers is the only way we make money. I used a lot of "life savings" up from the elderly.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ripping people off!!! Stop scamming and up charging. Stop selling junk rv and then charging them for repairs!
