Loved the culture but was underappreciated.

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Pineville, NC

ProsThe benefits are awesome - even part-time benefits. The culture is very cool. The customers tend to be cool also.

ConsPressure to sell memberships - with no direct reward. I felt personally underappreciated because I wasn't invited to stay on as a regular employee after my second stint as a seasonal employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you like an employee enough to invite them back for a second round of seasonal work, invite them to stay even if you don't have many hours for them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great for those who do what we sell

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cranston, RI

    I have been working at REI


    Pros: REI is a great place to work if you participate in the activities that we sell gear for. Discounts and pro deals are awesome, so… Cons: It's tough to move up if you start at the bottom. There are a lot of steps to complete to become a supervisor and so… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
