Do I get breaks?
Of course! Breaks are determined and scheduled by client. You will receive more information on breaks once you receive your official assignment.
How far do I drive to work?
Drive time can be as little as 2 miles or as long as 30 miles. Some locations have the potential to walk to work! It is all dependent on your client assignment.
Where will I be working?
Depending on your skills and availability you could be working at one of many different South Dakota/Rapid City/Black Hills local businesses. We hire everything from gift shop, retail, restaurant, tourist attractions, office administrative to general labor and everything in between!
What do I need for clothes and shoes?
Your work attire will be dependent on the client you will be working for. Some positions require a uniform, which will be discussed prior to arrival.
When do I need to arrive?
Most positions will start towards the end of April or early part of May. Once you have been assigned to your position a specific arrival date and start date will be issued.
How long am I there?
Most positions will end around the beginning to middle of September. An official end date will be determined before your arrival but you should plan to commit until mid-September.
When and how am I paid?
Pay is weekly. Exact pay dates are available upon arrival. We pay by either Direct Deposit or Global Cash Card. Direct Deposit needs to be set up prior to arrival, usually by the end of February.
How do I let my dogs out?
Until you are able to determine if the client you will be working for allows off site lunches it is best to plan to meet other Workampers in your campground that you can connect with to let each other’s pets out. Some campgrounds provide hosts that may be willing to walk dogs.
What are the hours I’ll be working?
Your hours are dependent on the client and position. Once assigned you will receive your official shift times.
Can we be with our friends?
Assignments are made based on skill and availability, so it is not always possible to work with your friends. We try to accommodate whenever possible.
