    Ich habe in Teilzeit bei REI gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    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

    Great employee benefits, awesome discounts and a friendly atmosphere to work in. Everyone is welcoming and a real team player. I am not as outdoorsy as other employees but they still treat me with respect for the knowledge I do have.

    Kontras

    Retail hours aren't always fun, but that is the case almost anywhere you go.

    Pros

    The culture, the people who work at REI, the ability to move up in the company, the time off, health benefits, retirement benefits, and commuter benefits.

    Kontras

    It's hard to survive in the Bay Area working at REI, although if you are a student or someone looking for part time work at a good company with good people, then REI could be a good fit for you.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei REI gearbeitet (Über 10 Jahre)

    Pros

    Fantastic perks and benefits, especially the retirement match %. Deals direct from the vendor, discounts on purchases from REI, schedule flexibility, good health care costs. Company does a lot of good to encourage participation in the outdoors, protecting our land, etc.

    There were some really fantastic people that worked there, people who were legit to the core, and who are willing to take risks, to mentor others, and to really dedicate themselves to the company and what it stands for. Lots of like-minded people, value wise. There used to be a lot of support to grow your career within the company but that is dropping off a bit as the company gets bigger.

    Kontras

    Poor accountability. Because the company so rarely fired or laid off anyone, there were plenty of people who just skated along, even if they were no good at their job. People, including upper management, were not given direct feedback which leads to promotion of incompetence or just punting someone who is troublesome around, hoping they will get fed up and leave on their own. It's the "REI nice" - people are nice to your face and don't give you honest feedback so it's hard to improve. Very frustrating for people looking to improve their skills.

    Rat an das Management

    While it may be hard to have honest conversations with your employees, just be straight with them. There are too many people just hanging on that don't even know it.

    Ich habe in Teilzeit bei REI gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Great company all around the gives back to community.
    Flexible work schedule for employees who travel/camp and do anything outdoors.
    Managers and employees really care about one another.
    Most customers are very easy going and really interested in making a connection with employees
    They don't support black Friday and instead give employees a paid day off and encourages them to not support black Friday by not spending money and instead spending the day outdoors.

    Kontras

    You have to be willing to bend over backwards for customers since they are paying a high price of their items.
