    Benefits for full time employees are great. The discounts are the best benefit there is.

    If you love the outdoors REI has on of the greatest deals for you. Employees get a good in store discount on everything and have access to incredible deals directly from the vendors. REI offers excellent health benefits to employees with a yearly average of 20 hours and a pension plan at full time.

    There isn't one until you have about a year in at near full-time hours.

    only 20 hours per week rolling average (over 1 year) needed to qualify for full benefits... great health insurance, retirement plan, vacation time and sick days, great discounts for everyone regardless of hours...

    Great employee discount and prodeals on products, services, and adventure travel. They also provide a generous company contribution to 401K, and an employee incentive bonus program that is tied to company performance.

    Working part-time at REI, I was eligible for a pretty awesome health care plan. I'm not sure what that's like for them now with the changes in requirements but in 2010 when I worked there I was working part-time and had great health benefits. Also-each store has a gear bank that employees can borrow from-- so much fun!

    Best place to get health insurance for a part-time job. Great Pro-deals from a lot of companies. Easy to request time off and to swap shifts with employes.

    For me the best part of our benefits package is the transit subsidy. After a busy day at work, it's nice not to have the stress of driving in rush hour traffic as a part of my day.

    The best part is prodeals. It makes getting into a new outdoor sport very easy.
