Temporary Staffing Firms ... How Do Working RVers and Campers Find Them?

Temporary staffing firms can be difficult for RV workers to find. When some call them "temp services" and others call them "placement agencies," it can be tricky. Here are some search tips and terms.

In the telephone book yellow pages, you find temp staffing agencies under “Employment Contractors - Temporary Help.”

Working RVer Tip

When you work for an RV site at a private campground, even though no money changes hands, you may still be earning reportable income. Working in exchange for a site is bartering. The fair market value of barter is taxable income. The information on barter can be found in IRS Publication 525.

Working RVer Tip

Can you flip an egg with the flick of your wrist, without using a spatula or other utensil? We were in a local restaurant when the owner was interviewing a prospective employee about being a line cook. The guy looked respectable. He was neat and clean. He had experience cooking at another restaurant. He seemed polite and thoughtful when answering questions. It seemed like the interview was going well for him. But then came the deciding question: Can you flip eggs with the flick of your wrist?

One skill (or lack thereof) was the deal breaker. Or, looking at it from a more positive perspective, if you can do one task -- the particular one that is important to that particular employer -- that may be all it takes to get hired.

Working RVer Tip

When looking at selling your services, look at the things you like to do and that are easy for you to do. It's easy to discount the value of things that you enjoy doing and that don't take much effort for you. But, those may be the very things that others don't like doing. Or, that are difficult for them to do. Others may be happy to pay you for doing what you like to do, what you may not even consider work.

Jobs with Housing for Workers Who Don't Yet Have Their RV

Jobs with housing can fill the gap between living in a traditional home that you own or rent and when you get your RV. A variety of work options include room and board or lodging accommodations. Here are some examples and situations that work for folks who don't yet have a recreational vehicle of their own:

Bed and breakfasts -- If they don't operate at full capacity, they may have an extra room you could rent during the entire time you worked there.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
