    Work-life balance. Team work. Understanding bosses.

    It seams like there no career opportunities unless you have a college degree, even If you have relevant work experience they will pass up promotions to family and college kids.

    Advice to Management

    Give out raises, bonus, and look for opportunity to promote from with-in and groom the people you manage. Teach them how to be successful at the level that there are and the next.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, health insurance. Many good people working there. The retail store is run well with great management.

    Cons

    Very unorganized, poor management in front office and a rotating door of management in other areas gives a bad impression to customers. Gossiping in the front office about current employees as well as employees who leave is extremely unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    A couple of your managers can't manage their own lives, much less manage others. Many times bad management is the reason for excessive turnover, and that is definitely why I left.

    Pros

    No drug testing. Addicts are welcome.

    Cons

    There are way too many to list.

    Advice to Management

    I've thought about how describe this company in a single word. I've considered incompetence, disorganization, communist, indifferent...I've decided that the best single word to describe this company is DISHONEST. Both for the customer and the employee. 

    You will be lied to consistently. You will be lied to inconsistently by different managers. They can't even get their stories straight in the multi hour meetings they have. 

    Your pay will be cut in more ways than one. Salespeople find them in a world of disappearing commissions; the service people find themselves being doubly cut. They cut the mechanics pay rate, then cut the amount of time allocated to complete the job. Parts is also doubly cut. Hourly and salary rates are slashed as well as commission on sold or billed parts.

    One group which does make out well is those in the retail store. They're all inexperienced. They get paid a small percentage more than if they had a job at a store in the mall or the K or Walmart. So, for them, it's a great deal. 

    The company, overall seems to highly value inexperienced and uneducated people. Overall, it seems to embody absolute disdain for experienced and competent people. This is true in all departments. Especially management. I believe this is in order to pay lower wages. 

    There are a lot of things to complain about. Nothing to be celebrated comes to mind. 

    I must say that the most frustrating thing to date is fear of being terminated because of political affiliation.
