Do you dream of traveling the country in your RV but still need a way to pull in some income while you're on the road? Then Amazon CamperForce might be your ticket. Amazon hires campers for seasonal employment in a variety of locations. Not a wide variety mind you, but if you plan on being in a select handful of states you're in luck. Jobs areas available include picking, packing, stowing, shipping, and receiving.
How does it work?
First off - do you own an RV? If not, your journey ends here. If you do, then read on. The CamperForce jobs available are in Amazon warehouses so the usual requirements of standing long hours, lifting heavy objects, climbing stairs, operating equipment, etc. all apply. If you meet the requirements and are still interested, keep going.
The next step is to apply. You'll need to register then apply online. If you are accepted, you'll be required to attend a Virtual New Hire Event - an online presentation for new employees. If you have a travel partner, they'll need to register to.
What are the benefits?
In addition to $15/hr starting pay, medical and prescription coverage is available after 90 days, you'll get holiday and overtime pay, 401(k), an assignment completion bonus (.$50 for every regular hour worked and $1.00 for every overtime hour worked), and up to $550 per month for campground expenses.
What locations are available?
Now here's the catch - you have to stay at a participating campground during your assignment. Unfortunately, the campground options are limited so it's not like you can roam freely across the U.S. and stay wherever you want. Though Amazon has recently expanded the locations it offers, currently there are only campsites in Arizona, Kentucky, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and they are often already filled.
Hopefully Amazon will open more locations in the future. In the meantime, availability changes frequently so check back often for openings or you can even sign up for text alerts: Text CAMPERFORCE to 77088. Amazon does not offer a "wait list" but states that current applicants will receive announcements if additional opportunities become available.
Good luck and happy travels!
