REI is committed to recognizing and rewarding our employees with a total rewards package that includes competitive base pay, incentives and comprehensive benefits, generous employee discounts and other perks, as well as programs that support good health and work/life balance.
Our cash-compensation package includes competitive wages and an above market incentive plan. We believe that all employees should share in the rewards of total company performance and all regular REI employees—full- and part-time—are eligible for the annual incentive plan.

    Best, great coverage. Worst, plan documents and information is difficult to find and the benefits information page is not well laid out.

    REI benefits are excellent. There are several plans to choose from. Domestic partnerships, both same sex and opposite sex, are allowed.

    Benefits are pretty good starting with the deep discounts. They do have health insurance for PT people, but you need 1500 hours and an average of 20+ hours per week, measured on a quarterly basis to qualify. They did away with the lower benefit plan after the "Affordable Health Care" went into effect.

    REI has fantastic benefits. Tuition reimbursement was discontinued, but overall it's really comprehensive.

    You can get life partner benefits for anyone you have lived with for 6+ months and share financials with. Same sex couples don't matter, sign a little paper with a notary public and you and your partner can have full coverage including dental and vision. You get bonuses 1/year which equal approximately 10% of your pay into a 401k or other savings plan. You can earn up to 10% of your pay based on your pay band in cash every year based on how well your store did.
