    I have been working at Camping World full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lenient with time off, value personal privacy, good with keeping up with camping trends, relaxed atmosphere regarding dress, try to retain a family atmosphere

    Cons

    Rapid growth is causing discord and planning, too sales heavy and not enough care about the customer, to top heavy with inexperienced people in higher positions

    Advice to Management

    employee retention would be stronger if upper management would value the experience of their employees and stop promoting people into positions they clearly are not capable of handling

    I worked at Camping World full-time

    Pros

    The people I worked directly with were great, also those in the corporate office.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with upper management, no pay raises, seems only men can advance in this company, they waste your time loading you down with emails that don't relate to you instead of sending them directly to that person, worst computer system to work with, lack of proper training.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lay off an entire branch right before the holidays, with only giving a three day notice.

    I have been working at Camping World full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong team mentality, new tasks and the chance to cross train is always offered, the company itself keeps it lively with the sales and events each month, generally a very nice place to work

    Cons

    Service needs a lot of work, retail and sales don't always communicate as much as they should regarding customers, and because of the way the pay works it feels as if raises are impossible to get or hope for

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Stay in tune to the employees, and not just when they slip up. Challenge us but don't make us feel defeated

    I worked at Camping World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work there try to make it a fun environment.

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Unanswered promises to employees
    Lack of respect to employees

    Advice to Management

    People who come to work there are truly those who want to work there. Spend time helping them to achieve there goals and work with what you have to make this company successful. Also, communication is key. You cannot expect everyone to be on the same page when you don't communicate with everyone.

    I have been working at Camping World full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Commission can be very high

    Cons

    Sales associates are expected to take Customer Service calls, lots and lots of customer service calls which hurts conversion which reduces commission.

    IT department can't make the website work properly.

    Technology is stuck in the 1990's

    CEO can't keep his mouth shut, have taken hundreds of calls from customers stating they will never shop here again due to his statements

    CEO issues half hearted apologies that are completely incoherent.

    CEO does not care about low level workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more customer service agents, you will lose all of your best salespeople if the CS calls keep increasing and the staff stays the same.

    They are great about working with crazy schedules and demands of being a parent to young children. Great pay.

    Pros

    Will hire just about anyone. As long as youre breathing, youre in.

    Cons

    Was in sales. Every single customer got screwed over and was very unhappy after their purchase. Service dept was a joke. No other way to describe it. Not one employee knew what the hell they were doing! I actually felt bad selling campers to nice families, knowing they wouldnt be happy for long. Very shady place.

    Advice to Management

    Gwt some integrity and treat customers right. Quit lying to them. Quit ignoring their calls. You wont be in business long.
