    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.
