I have been working at REI part-time (Less than a year)
- Amazing employee discount -Fun working with coworkers who share the same interest -Diverse employees
-Unfair distribution of hours. My manager unless I spoke with them several times would give employees who started at the same time in the company with the same availability different hours per a week. For example some weeks I received 4 and others 15 per a week. I rarely received 15 hours. The schedule is emailed with everybody's names. Very easy to see when others are receiving more hours than yourself. Felt like the middle mangers did not take time to make sure all employees were being treated equal. -Everyone is hired as seasonal at first. Then after 90 days they review your performance to see if they want to keep you permanently on their team. -Performance reviews are often months behind. For example I never received my 30 day check in until I worked for the company for 60 days. I'm still waiting for my 90 day review even though I started months before the holidays. I have yet to find out if I will be staying on the team as a part-time employee or asked to leave. This is EXTREMELY frustrating and takes the fun out of working for this company. -People hardly leave REI, so openings for promotions are limited.
Advice to Management
-Managers need to distribute hours equally especially to part-time employees. -Follow through on performance reviews especially after 90 days.
