    Pros

    Most of your coworkers will appreciate and respect the outdoors and believe in the company mission. You will get great discounts and plenty of product knowledge so you'll always have the newest and best gear. Management is good about honoring time off requests so you can get out there and enjoy the lifestyle you are "selling." The work environment is casual. Coworkers will genuinely work together to provide good customer service making customers happy. It's rewarding to help people get outside.

    Kontras

    Most employees are part-time (10-15 hours per week) which is great if you aren't actually trying to pay any bills. Very few people work anything close to full-time.

    It's basically a dead-end job. Management positions are supposedly awesome, but the reality of working your way up the ladder is slim to none. Management positions get eliminated, and the people in management positions never leave.

    Turnover is high among sales specialists. Well, it is retail after all, but there is a lot of frustration at the bottom. Everyone is trying hard to impress the managers because they all want to be a candidate for a management position themselves whenever one becomes a available. At my store, there was a lot of two-faced back stabbing going on. It was kind of like high school all over again but with less acne and at least you could hide in the sleeping bags for a while.

    Selling memberships seems to be the only metric for measuring success, and trying to sell them is painful to say the least. Most customers already have a membership. The people who don't, generally don't want one. I could up sell anything, but memberships weren't good for me. If you do want to work your way up, be sure to perfect your membership sales pitch and get ready for irritated shoppers... especially when you are the third or fourth sales specialist to say the "M" word. Good luck.

    Rat an das Management

    Memberships are important, of course. But be sure to reward knowledgable, hard-working, and customer-focused employees as well.

    Pros

    Super nice and friendly co-workers in the store. Everyone was very willing to help out and pitch in on shift.

    Kontras

    The pay was not great and the hours are super inconsistent, somewhat to be expected of retail work. It was hard to feel like I was making progress towards anything.

    Rat an das Management

    Give employees more and casual reviews so that they can improve their performance prior to their formal review.

    Ich habe in Teilzeit bei REI gearbeitet (Über 8 Jahre)

    Pros

    Once you are eligible for benefits, the health care benefits are great, even if you are part time. Employees must maintain a rolling average of 23 hours or so a week. Great discount on gear, excellent deals directly from vendors. At my location, main store in Seattle, co workers were /are well educated and socially and environmentally conscious. Coworkers were of diverse ages, though not yet sufficiently ethnically diverse. I know they are trying to improve this. LGBT friendly.

    Kontras

    Staffing often was very light on very busy days. Even though non salary benefits are very generous, actual pay was not great, especially in an expensive city like Seattle.

    Rat an das Management

    Many in management staff are wonderful caring people. Others are bordering on robotic, answering concerns with a pre fab, obviously well practiced "answer," that felt very uncaring. I hope that management training can attain greater depth with regard to interpersonal communication.

    Pros

    Super positive and the company puts a focus on employees knowing product details. They hold a lot of classes to help educate people about playing outside!

    Kontras

    Management is not always available on the floor when you need them, and overall management/sales lead team needs some improvement.

    Rat an das Management

    Ask employees what you can do to make the busy shifts easier!

    Pros

    Depending on department, could be a fun place to work at. The people in each department are like little families.

    Kontras

    The pay. People who were hired before the $13 min wage will not get a pay increase, which in some cases means new hires are making more than people who were hired a year ago.

    Ich arbeite in Teilzeit bei REI (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance focus. Solid store management. Fellow coworkers who really, really love their jobs and love working there, and want you to love working there, too. Twice a year, you get a paid Yay Day to go outside (paid 6 hrs for part-time, 8 hrs for full-time employees) and do something you love. Sales managers are encouraging and helpful. Training before you hit the sales floor is extensive and helpful (for the most part). If you average working 20 hrs a week (or more) for a year, you're eligible for health insurance.

    Kontras

    It can be hard to get hours, even if you have wide open availability, and overtime is almost never approved/allowed. Huge variety of items in the store, which can make it really challenging for helping customers who expect you to know every technical aspect of every piece.

    Rat an das Management

    Make sure that morning/evening meetings are really necessary (especially evening ones where everyone is trying to get home). Some managers are really great at them, though!
