I have been working at REI full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule, employee discounts, incredible co-workers, company values.

Cons

Worklife balance can be questionable and varies from dept to dept. Change is very slow. They often times don't hire enough people to do the work and then wonder why the work product is mediocre.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

LISTEN to your people, when they tell you they are overworked, do something about it. Don't tell us to "stop/Start/Continue" and then never let us "stop" anything.

    I worked at REI full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great discounts, awesome co-workers, great for outdoor gear junkies, good for someone who wants a part time job

    Cons

    Too much pressure to sell memberships. Not enough guaranteed hours, pay is too low especially when compared to management and the ratio of work to pay considering how much time the management spend in the office running their mouths.

    Pros

    Everyone that works for REI is friendly. So are the customers.

    Cons

    Advancement in the company can be difficult. Not much room for growth unless you want to work for HQ.
