    Former Employee - Sales Specialist in Huntington Beach, CA
    Former Employee - Sales Specialist in Huntington Beach, CA

    I worked at REI full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall good work environment and great coworkers that shared my passion for the outdoors. Good benefits including health and 401k. Great employees discounts on gear through the store as well as “pro-deals”. REI donates a lot of money to environmental and community outreach.

    Cons

    My biggest frustration with my time at REI was the poor communication from management at the retail level. For much of my time with the company I was on the “endorsement track” (management track). In the hope of being rewarded with a endorsement, I conducted extra projects and took on more responsibilities beyond my title. Throughout the process I was NEVER fully clear on where I stood or how close I was to obtaining a endorsement from management. They kept the whole process vague. My manager told me multiple times that I was close. Eventually I got the sense that they had no intention “promoting” me, but continued to string me along in order to keep me around and motivated. I was burned out by the process. This was not a isolated incident. Several highly competent, hardworking coworkers were also strung along, only to eventually leave the company out of frustration. The lack of communication opened the door for constant rumors of favoritism and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don’t forget what made the "Co-op" successful; and its unique position in its market. Don’t loose focus on REI’s identity by being overly concerned about Amazon and other online competitors. Reinvest in product education and sales training for the sales staff; after-all, this use to set REI apart from its competitors. Also, membership numbers alone shouldn’t be the only thing to gage the value of a retail employee. This alone has discouraged too many great employees.
