Camping World: Connect to Nature

What we offer

How would we describe the company culture?

Our mission is to consistently enhance the RV experience for our customers

As the industry leader, we strive to make our customers smile by providing friendly service. Our goal is to make RV ownership fun, comfortable, safe and carefree. We take our responsibility to our customers seriously. We continuously invest in you – our associate – through training, diverse work experiences, cool perks and enriching programs so you can better assist our customers, every day.

Our culture is focused on service: both for our customers and for our communities where we work and live. Our associates are treated with respect, and in-turn, treat each other with respect. Our commitment to service extends far beyond our company’s walls. We strongly believe in giving back, and do so through our associate volunteer program: Project Good Samaritan.

Our Core Values:
     Respectfulness of Co-Workers
     Ethical Conduct
     Support the Local Community
     Promote the RV and Camping Industries
     Encourage Individuality with Team Focus
     Constantly Improve
     Treat Our Customers Right

We work in an open and inviting environment where questions and new ideas are always welcomed and encouraged. So much so that you, as well as our customers, can email our CEO – and get a response from him. We promote teamwork and recognize that it is key to simultaneously meeting our goals and having fun. After all, if you do what you love, you’ll love what you do!

What else should applicants know about us?

At Camping World and Good Sam, we are keenly aware that many of our friends and neighbors are in need of the basics such as food, clothing and housing, and donations of our time and resources. We promote and encourage volunteerism among our colleagues through our Project Good Samaritan initiative as well as continue to assist local and national non-profit organizations with financial and in-kind donations. We also show a collective respect for the environment through our individual attention to conservation and recycling.

Project Good Samaritan is a new program for Camping World and Good Sam. Beginning in 2013, all full-time associates volunteer 8 hours of their scheduled work time per quarter (32 hours per year) for causes that are of special interest or meaning. Those associates with part-time status volunteer 4 hours per quarter (16 hours per year). In either case, Camping World and Good Sam provides employees with paid time off from their regularly scheduled workday to give back to their communities.

The Project Good Samaritan initiative is dedicated to making our communities a better place through an ongoing focus on philanthropy. This initiative follows through on our Good Sam Pledge:

  • To give aid to others in need
  • To respect nature and the environment 
  • To give back to the community and those less fortunate 
  • To treat others with dignity and respect 
  • To wear a smile (like Good Sam’s) and promote the pledge of the Good Sam Club to others 

Since the beginning of the Project Good Samaritan program, our associates have donated over 350,000 hours of service to their local communities!

If you or your organization have a need for volunteers, please send us an email at projectgoodsamaritan@campingworld.comand let us know how we can help. Please be sure to include the following in your message:

  • Name of your organization, event, or program
  • Contact information (Name, Phone Number, and Email address)
  • The activities that employees would perform while volunteering as well as any requirements for Camping World and Good Sam employees to volunteer (i.e. orientation, background check, etc.)
  • A soft copy of any forms that would need to be completed by volunteers

Our Commitment to the Environment

According to the EPA, electronic waste (also known as e-waste) is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America. Currently, E-waste represents 2 percent of America's trash in landfills, but equals 70 percent of overall toxic waste. To put this in perspective, there are 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste disposed worldwide every year. Only 12.5 percent of that e-waste is currently being recycled.

Furthermore, a large number of what is considered "e-waste" is actually not waste at all, but rather whole electronic equipment or parts that are readily available for reuse or can be recycled for materials recovery. In 2008, we recognized the importance of properly recycling our used electronics. Since then, we have recycled over 82,000 pounds of equipment – including computers, printers, monitors, registers, keyboards, network equipment, phones, and credit card machines.
