Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Affinity Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Company provides volunteer hours to give back to the community. This is now pretty common but still worth giving them credit for.
Pay is good in certain departments but comes with a huge price that drains your soul.
Most jobs in the Camping World retail and customer service pay $9 to $12 an hour which is fine for young people but many are 30+ years old with kids to support.

Cons

Very much a spam organization. Members are called and mailed constantly. CEO and President run the show from a distance. It matters very little what senior management thinks or wants to do. It only matters if they don't want to do something asked of them, because then they are quickly replaced. Many people have left the company for lower paying jobs due to the lack of confidence in CEO and having to endure decisions that made no business sense and cost the company money and made the work environment miserable.

Advice to Management

CEO- Glass Door shows a 15% approval rating with your employees! You are more interested in starting up reality shows than learning from your employees that have good honest feedback. You are a bully (do what I say or get out) and a one man show and I don't respect the lack of leadership and lack of value you have for good people who are working in fear of you.

    I worked at Affinity Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Local management team great to work with and understanding. Workload was not oppressive - you could have a life too. Great location.

    Cons

    Top management change resulted in persistent adjustments and an atmosphere of fear for the employees. Uncertainty makes an uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    People know that changes are being made. Share your plans with them and let them prepare their lives, their futures. They will thank you every day.
