I received a letter from Amazon for the 2012 Peak season already. I have worked in Campbellsville Kentucky for two seasons now and once you sign on it, is a position you can return to each and every year and they are very happy to have you return! If you want to work a few months then head South or West for the New Year this would be a perfect choice to fund the next season's stay and be an integral part of your work camping schedule.

Greetings to our 2011 CamperForce Team!

We hope this finds you well and enjoying your spring! We have been busy making plans and recruiting for our 2012 CamperForce Program and are wondering if you plan to join us again this fall!

Also, we are looking for returning campers that are interested in serving as a CamperForce Scout! To better understand our vision for the Scout program, please review the attached Job Description and if interested, please apply by completing the attached Scout Application at your earliest convenience.


We look forward to hearing from you!

Warm Regards,


Stephanie Clenney | CamperForce Administrator | Amazon

Hello Carol,

Thanks for keeping all of us informed about opportunities to work while on the road. Danielle and I are keeping the Amazon program on our mind for 2013. We already have plans for 2012 and by 2013 may need a cash infusion - Amazon may be just the ticket.

The host position also sounds interesting. We're looking at situations like this for 2013 and beyond so we'll do some more investigating.

See Ya Down The Road.

Lucius

If it isn't mentioned above then look into being a Gate Guard for the oil industry. There's a long thread or two on RV.net (and I've posted a thread here on AIR, IIRC).

Saw a 345 Moho doing this work up north on FM-791 near Campbellton yesterday, and a 1969 Silver Streak out on Cuantas Milas Road off TX-16 near Tilden a few nights before.

It's hot and dusty here in South Texas, but I'd take a GG job over any warehouse job of any description any time. Most are 1099 jobs . . but everyone is happy to see you. Big difference, there.

I visited with a lady from Lincoln, NE the other night for awhile. Nice to shut off that big engine and talk under the stars however briefly. (I drive big trucks in the oilfield).

Workers Needed in Kentucky for Amazon

Hello Again CamperForce Alums!!

The Peak Season is fast approaching and we are still hiring toward our goals for the CamperForce.

We just want you to know that Amazon NEEDS YOU!! If you are in the area this peak season, we would love to have you back with us. The success of SDF1 last Fall is due in LARGE part to the wonderful work ethic and tenacity of workers like YOU, the CamperForce Associates! There’s no way we could meet the customer demand and provide the quality experience at this time of year without people like you guys!

There’s still time if you want to spend your holidays with us on your way to a warmer, sunnier climate for 2013! Start dates vary between September and early November. I’ve attached application materials and campground information. Should you have us in your travel plans, you will need to fill out section 1 of the application and return along with the signed NDA. Then I will get in touch with you for a brief and painless interview and discuss your start date and preferences.

THANK YOU for your help in our previous success! We hope you might consider being part of our future successes as well!! J

JENIFER CARNEY l CamperForce Administrator l Amazon SDF1

Thanks for posting the details Wheel. Is there any chance of working for just one month early in the season? Just thought I would pose the question here prior to contacting Amazon.

Hi Lucius, I am not certain, but a quick call to Jenifer should get you a quick answer. If you do get a definitive answer please post the results here. Thanks. I think the Green River State Park is a lovely place to stay, btw. You will need to have free pump out service because they do not have full hook-ups but the grounds are gorgeous and the wi-fi perfect!

Check my album for Green River. Cumberland Falls should be stopped at along the way when you get in that area. Lexington and Horse Fair Park are not far either.

I've been Gateguarding for the past 3 months and plan on continuing until next June before I take a break and head to Alaska. Great opportunity for some...

I've seen a few A/S's out in the field working as GG's. My favorite is the Bambi with a giant A/C and moho sized radome for sat-tv over near Cotulla. Saw a 345 moho just down the road from it the other day.

Andy Jones has the best GG blog at MyOldRV - RV Fulltiming and Boondocking Advice. Start at the beginning and work your way through.

Be aware that some if not most of the GG positions are 1099 (whether legal or not is being debated by the Dept of Labor), so self-employment taxes may apply to that $125-$150 daily rate.

Thanks Scorpiontimo. We are loving it. Our first gate was out of Tilden, Texas at a place called Broken Skull Ranch owned by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. We took thousands of wildlife pictures and we love our neighbors (none).
