    Current Employee - Retail Sales in Austin, TX

    I have been working at REI part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Retail starts at 9.75
    -Great discounts (50% on REI brand)
    -ProDeals
    -Opportunities to teach clinics
    -Surrounded by outdoorsy people
    -Community service at local parks

    Compared to the pay and cultures at many other retail shops, REI is satisfying place to work, especially part time.

    Cons

    -Emphasis on selling memberships and the daily conversion rate

    This can become a bit tedious. Depending on the individual vibe of your store, management may come down on you if you fail to convert a certain percentage of customers.
