Workamping Interviews- Ask the right questions
When we first started interviewing for Workamping jobs we really had no idea what we were doing. We were clueless as to what questions would be asked, what topics would be discussed and ultimately what questions we should ask, in order to make sure the job was a good fit for us.
After a few tests runs, we started to figure things out. It wasn’t long before we were in the driver’s seat, steering these Employer led conversations toward our own destinations.
So what questions should you ask during a Workamping interview?
The answer to this question lies within the details of what exactly you’re looking for in your next employment offer. If you just simply need a free site, your questions will be drastically different from someone looking for a wealth of recreation activities for their family, as we were.
Regardless of the specifics of your intentions, some questions are just good to ask future RV employers. We’ve compiled a list of the questions we usually ask future employers, which we’ve provided in no particular order below…
