Construction Personnel

Temporary construction personnel allows contractors to save money by only hiring workers they need. In tough economic times, staying under budget is important to both contractor and skilled tradesmen.

Past statistics have shown that when an economic recession occurs, temporary construction workers are the first to go, but, when the tides starts to turn, even a little, temporary workers are the first to get hired back, even before permanent workers.

As the United States economy tries to right itself, more commercial and industrial construction projects are starting to move beyond the planning stage. Temporary construction workers are being sought in huge numbers across the country.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Coverage of Work Campers on Equipment?

~~ Mark and Lavern ask: We manage a beautiful 130 site RV Park in Cherokee, NC. We are beginning to bring in work campers for some help. What is the legal way that we can be certain if they ride our riding lawnmower or our tractor, or are just weed eating, and they have an accident, that we covered? We have insurance which covers anyone else's property being damaged, (liability insurance). But it does not cover a work camper. Is a release as a subcontractor going to cover our campground?

~~ I answered in part: Are you hiring work campers as employees? Or, are you using the services of another business?

If you are hiring work campers, I would think that you would need to have workman's compensation insurance. Isn't that a requirement for every employer?

Working RVer Tip

Spell Things Out for Clear Communication

Abbreviations and acronyms shorten up your Work Wanted and Help Wanted advertisements, and your resumes. They also make them more difficult to understand. You may be surprised to find out just how many people who live in recreational vehicles or work in (or own) campgrounds don't know the short hand that you take for granted. "FHU" is a good example. It really should be spelled out as "full hook up (FHU)" the first time you use it in your communications.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Camp Worker Eligibility

We are former RVers. We now own a park model in an RV park in AZ. Are we eligible to apply for jobs as camp workers?

~~ I answered in part: Yes! You are eligible to apply for camp work jobs. Since you now have a park model, you are still RVers.

That aside, you can find campground jobs that don't require you to have a recreational vehicle. Some offer a cabin, apartment, or other lodging as part of the salary package.

You will also find that not all camp jobs require you to live on the premises. I've been to many campgrounds where the staff lived off-site and commuted to and from work on a daily basis.

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....
