I have been working at REI

Pros

Great Discounts. you get 50 or more percent off, its crazy who would want to pay regular price after that

Cons

They brainwash you with corporate bull, 20 hour miniumum work week, required meetings, unhappy customers, short lunches, no bathroom breaks

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Its really a great place to work. you get awesome discounts, 50 percent or more off, its crazy. who would want to pay retail after that

    Pros

    Great people - REI has an active, engaged workforce. Pleasant culture - the need to find balance between working hard and having fun is not only acknowledged but encouraged.

    Cons

    Some managers were reluctant to ask employees to be accountable - but I think that happens in any organization and is thankfully it is rare at REI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on high levels of job satisfaction. Remain committed to quality product that everyone in the organization can be proud of. Continue to give back by supporting great causes.

    Pros

    Fantastic discounts
    Wonderful diverse community of people
    Generous starting hourly pay
    Good health benefits for part time
    You will mostly work with liberal open minded ladies and gentlemen

    Cons

    At times I feel that the fact I was never a boyscout / girlscout counts against me in the social structure of the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Punishments and rewards should be more clearly defined.
    Training should be more extensive in all aspects.
