Current Employee - Warehouse Associate in Bedford, PA

I have been working at REI full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Employee discounts, great co-workers and good pay

Cons

Very poor communication from upper management at distribution center. They are totally out of touch with the needs and concerns of the employees. REI employees are sent home early because of low volume of work, but the temporary workers continue to work. Issues of importance are not addressed, while management rolls out meetings with elaborate business growth plans. They say they are concerned about customer and employee concerns, but they are really concerned about the bottom line, the dollar, and their bonus checks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Could you just listen to some actual employee issues instead of rolling out charts and power point presentations about financial growth and expansion.
