    Former Employee - Sales Specialist
    Former Employee - Sales Specialist

    I worked at REI part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Most of the people you work with have similar interests. I have gained friends and activity buddies because most of us are into the same things
    -PRODEALS

    Cons

    -inconsistent hours
    -low pay
    -must have a second (or third) job to pay bills but they want you to have an open schedule for them
    -focus on membership sales and mobile transactions but not actual outdoor gear knowledge and experience
    -scheduling is directly tied to membership sales
    -constantly said "we can train you" but that training never actually happened
    -saw people get promoted that know very little about the outdoor industry and business in general
    -eliminated benefits for employees averaging less than 32 hours per week / would constantly keep employees below 32 hours because it is considered full-time to work 32/wk
    -claim to care about stewardship and the community but I saw very little outreach and work within the community
    -hire a large number of employees that have no knowledge of the outdoors or products (i.e. an employee working in camping that had not actually been camping/backpacking/hiking before while an employee with experience and knowledge was working in clothing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept that this is not going to be a career job for the majority of your employees. You can't expect them to devote their life to you if you pay them $11.50 per hour and schedule them for less than 20 hours each week.
    Train your employees on the products you sell!
