Snag a KOA Job

You found a position and you are interested in applying? Great, let us help you get the job! 

Applying for a KOA position is a little different than applying for your average job. While your resume is set up in Workatkoa.com, your cover letter is the first introduction to a potential employer. Make sure to stand out by following these tips-

  • Explain why you want to work at KOA
  • Describe your skills and abilities
  • Be honest! 
  • Make sure to proofread- Have your spouse or a friend read it over. A second set of eyes is invaluable to the editing process.

While the job can be fun, it can also be hard work. If you can’t or don’t want to lift heavy things, stoop and bend, or work in the extreme heat of summer, don’t apply for jobs that require such tasks of you. Your experience will be much more pleasant if you are working in an appropriate work environment.

You may expect the KOA owner/manager to interview you, but you will also want to ask some questions. You need to make sure that the campground and management will be a fit for you so that you enjoy your time as an employee of the campground. Prepare for the interview by writing down some questions you have about the job, such as “What is your management style?”, or “What does a typical day on the job look like?”. These enquiries can help you decide if the position, manager, and campground will be a good fit for you.

Don’t forget to upload a picture of your RV. Campgrounds need to make sure your rig is in good condition. If there is missing information on your resume, cover letter, or RV picture, you may be passed over even if you are a perfect fit for the job. Again, this is where proofreading can save you!
