I have been working at REI part-time (More than 3 years)
Insurance available if you can work enough hours, excellent retirement advising and retirement savings, fun work, not too demanding most of the time. And they usually have peanut butter, bread and ramen in the breakroom. mmmmm.
Not too demanding most of the time, I don't love to eat ramen, don't live at home and my other two jobs don't really cover the gap. Can't get much more than 20 hours a week. If you want to advance, you have to move.
Advice to Management
I don't feel like my "calibration" meetings do much other than prepare me for a minimal raise when it finally comes around. What, in concrete terms, will get me to the top raise level?Advice like "make a difference in other departments" doesn't make sense when I'm given the evil eye if I'm not in my department by managers who seem unapproving and coworkers who don't want/shouldn't have to shoulder my load. What metrics are managers rewarded for? I would love for my motivation be in line with theirs and my reward proportionate as well. If I want to learn more about the products, don't make me do it on my own time. As a part timer, it's tough to feel fully informed due to not being there much. Not much face time.
