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

Pros

Great opportunity to work for a mission driven retailer. New leadership and strategy will set us up for success in the years to come. Change can be hard but exciting.

Cons

Lots to do but we need to take a holistic view and focus on the game changers. We are industry leaders but sometimes have been slow to move on some things. Glad we are moving forward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

During times of change remember to do the right thing. This is the heart and soul of our business and probably the reason you joined and others wish they could join.

    REI has a great reputation, but fails to live up to the hype

    I worked at REI full-time

    Pros

    best perks of any job i have ever had, good coworkers, lots of people around that want to do the fun outdoor things that you want to do - so there is never a dull day off.

    Cons

    bad management, extremely low pay, little concern over employee well-being, turn-and-burn mentality on new-hires, lying right to my face on important issues, management is never on the floor - always sitting in back checking their Facebook or retirement accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. Give them the benefit of the doubt, they might surprise you.
