Recommendations for Employers at the big tent?
#1
Wondering how good my prospects would be to land a job with one of the campgrounds at the big tent whilst there at the RTR.  I'm interested in camp hosting jobs, or any jobs to do with campgrounds, being as I work at one now as well (or at least till the end of my 2 weeks).  From what I gather, it seems as though most campgrounds want to hire couples with rv's, but I'm just me in a van.  Maybe a big park wouldn't hire me, which is fine, but a small one?  Just wondering if any single van dwellers have a recommendation for employers I should try and get in with.  I need to make an income so just having a free spot in exchange for time wouldn't work for me.  So if you have experience with any employers who are at the big tent, feel free to let me know, i'm looking for good recommendations :Smile thank you

I worked for CLM California Land Management for 3 years and I was happy with them. But like every company, it all depends on your boss. I’ve gotten friends jobs and they hated their job because they got a bad boss. I don’t think that’s the norm, but its possible.

I still recommmend them.

Thanks Bob.  I watched your video where you walked through the big tent and I remember that part where you said you recommended them actually :Smile What kind of job did you take with them and in what area of Cali?

Look for "remote hosting." If someone asks what type of rig you have, just mention you want to go remote. Good luck

What is a remote hosting position like, exactly?  I guess it's...remote.  It would be a bit scary being a solo female, to be out where there wasn't any help around though...

American Land and Leisure hired us the first day we went last year, Very nice people running that company. We asked for remote, it was around Lake Tahoe, they gave a company truck, and there was a head manager not too far away, I think it was around 10 miles from town.

This year we applied online with California Land Management and landed a job in the Sequoias.

Remote are gonna be the campgrounds out a little ways, but they still get busy. In the gorgeous areas.

Relaxing, the perfect job, you're out in gorgeous land, your job isn't hard, clean up the camping areas, the bathrooms, do the book keeping for the money. Be very nice to people, sometimes you have to ask people to keep the noise down, you just have to be polite and there's no issues. On weekends you can take time and go around the surrounding areas and explore.

I'm sure bob can tell you at great length with all his experiences.

Waverider1987, looking for the same info. Most workamper jobs want a couple, not having too much luck being single. Also, I see that some jobs have requirements about your rig, not wanting older RV units etc....
I will keep an eye on this thread, if anyone has any info, please chime in..
Thx, Roger

Folks, this is just a friendly reminder that many of us have limited bandwidth so we ask that you carefully trim any quotes you include to the bare minimum. When you are reading on a phone, and you have to read the same post twice to get a new comment, it can be frustrating--especially if there are pictures!

Be kind and trim!! Smile
I'd like to give myself a few negative ratings, because I am such a big meanie. The forum won't allow it. Feel free!
