My name is Tony Williams, I was hired by Camping World, in Gulf Breeze Florida in March 2, 2011 by Shawn Rob General Manager and Quinton Geist Service Manager and Colin Orvis Human
Resources Director. I have never flown on an airplane in my life, I was scared to death of the unknown, I put my fears aside and got on that Boeing 747 and on my way to Camping World Gulf Breeze Florida. I was here for 4 days, I worked for them for 2 days. On March 4, 2011 Me and my wife spoke with Quinton Geist and asked him on numerous times that I definitely got the job, he stated, "yes, you're hired you passed your criminal background, your drug test screening and you have a clear NJ driving record." I explained that I am packing up my whole life, this is the biggest move of my life, I don't need no surprises, I am relocating my whole family here, he stated, "you have nothing to worry about, you're hired, you got the job, welcome aboard." Before I pulled away in my rental car, I asked Quinton Geist again, I got the job, he smiled and said yes you do Tony, you got the job. I will contact you on a regular basis and keep you informed of my status situation, if anything happens to change on your part, don't hesitate to call me, because I am packing up my whole life for this job. They stated that its's not necessary, I stated I will keep in contact with you on a regular basis regardless and that I did. We were pulling away in front of the store was Shawn Rob, and I asked him the same exact question and he said yes, see you when you get down here. Qinton Geist said the same thing. There was no start date, I stated to both gentlemen, its going to take me quite a few weeks to put all this into effect and save money for relocation. Flew back to New Jersey, I own my own business, worked for myself conditioning myself and my life on paying your normal reality bills, opened up a seperate banking account and saved all the money possible for relocation. No matter what money problems I ran into, I found another way around to make money without touching that account and that I did. I busted my hump on making money, cutting deals on a job so I don't lose the job, so I can get down to Camping World in Gulf Breeze, Florida. When calling Camping World from NJ I always stated when leaving my status, if anything is changed don't hesitate to call me, and if I don't hear from you, I'll take it as it is still a go. Got down here on May 9, 2011, stated that I would see them on May 16, 2011 @ 8:00 a.m. showed up for work, and found out that I did not have a job. They never notified me on cell phone, fax, mail, nothing. They led me to believe that everything was fine and it wasn't. I found a rental property less than 7 minutes from Camping World and no job. I have
been ripped off by Gulf Properties Realty out of Navarre, Florida, showed a listing on the Internet that was 7 years old before hurricane Ivan, showed up 3:30 in the morning after driving 19 hour straight to find out that the rental was nothing like the listing showed and also what was in the listing. I also have two race cars 83 Trans Am and an 84 Trans Am, 1/4 mile race cars which was damaged by On Time Delivery out of Newark NJ, and then to find out that I don't have a job at Camping World. I left numerous of messages for Shawn Rob and Quinton Geist never returned my phone call, I had to personally drive to Camping World and track down Shawn Rob and ask him what are you doing to me and my family here? You couldn't get a solid answer out of him. The two men were going back and forth never got a straight answer. Quinton Geist stated that I was taken out of the system and he didn't know who did it or why they did it. Talked to Shawn Rob, and he stated Quinton Geist took you out of the system. They didn't know if I was serious. If I got on a jet and flew out to Florida what would make you think that I was not serious. Received a phone call from Shawn Rob on May 18, 2011 and said he and Quinton is going to try to find some type of work for me to do since I'm already here. But you knew that I was already on my way down. Told me to show up on the following Monday which would be May 23, 2011 at 8:00 a.m. calls me back the next day, May 19, 2011 and tells me that I don't have a job. His hands are tied.
So since then, I met some neighbors who has tried to help me and my family, gave me information for local church's for food, a family member has sent me money through the mail and tried to do what they can, I am very thankful and greatful nobody can believe what Camping World did to me and my family. they were suppose to reimburse me for the relocation they never did. They were suppose to reimburse me on 1 extra night at the hampton hotel and a 4 day car rental, they stuck me with that. I am thousands of dollars in debt in a place where I don't know where I am at, this place is very rural, very poor area, there is nothing here, trying to find work which is not happening, I should not have to be looking for work because I already had a job, that's why I'm here. There is no other reason for me to be here. I was on the Internet looking for work, and I seen that Camping World in Gulf Breeze, Fl is looking for RV technicians, I have a family member who has helped me with the Internet, Computer, land line phone and a fax machine to help me get out of this unthinkable horriable situation that Camping World put me in. This is psychological torture, I have been suffering severe pains in the chest, panic attacks, anxiety and depression just don't know what I'm going to do. I'm so backed up on bills that can't be paid because I have no job. I've recently brought by business from NJ to FL just got registered and licenced and handing out business cards all through housing developments trying to drum up some type of work. Famil member has helped me through all of this and this in not their responsifbility. This is all Camping World's fault for doing what they did and their putting other individuals through financial expences that's not their not responsibile for. All I can say about this situation is how can you hire someone look them dead in the eye and tell them face to face and tell them you have a job and you have nothing to worry about, you relocate all the way down here, and tell someone that they don't have a job after relocating their whole life here and go on with your life like nothing is wrong but you know deep down inside you did something wrong. How can you live with yourself by destroying people's families. Camping World is nothing but liars, kinivers, misleading individuals, and bad faith employment.
