Amazon Camperforce considerations
Like any seasonal employment, there are downsides to being a camperforce employee:
- Winter weather means your RV needs to be well-insulated against cold temperatures
- If you have pets, you’ll need to make pet sitting arrangements since work days can be as long as 12 hours.
- Working conditions can be rigorous: if you’re not in great shape, you probably won’t enjoy your job.
- You’ll miss the holidays; Amazon Camperforce employees typically work the entire Thanksgiving weekend. Most jobs end on December 23rd, giving you little time to travel anywhere in winter conditions that can be difficult, at best, to get around.
iRV2 member RetiredFPD said of the program:
“If we do it again, it will be from mid- Oct, not mid- Sept like this year. One of the most physically demanding jobs I’ve ever worked….particularly during “Peak” in Dec. LOTS of manditory overtime, i.e. 11 hour days and 5 days a week as opposed to 4 days. Liked that payday tho. To Amazon’s credit, they tell you from the beginning what you are in for….no secrets, and they try to make it as entertaining as possible, but make no mistake, you will work your butt off. LOTS of walking, lifting, bending, etc. Breaks and lunch go by quick, and they track your production closely. Not a job for sherkers or lazy folks.”
