REI is committed to recognizing and rewarding our employees with a total rewards package that includes competitive base pay, incentives and comprehensive benefits, generous employee discounts and other perks, as well as programs that support good health and work/life balance.
Our cash-compensation package includes competitive wages and an above market incentive plan. We believe that all employees should share in the rewards of total company performance and all regular REI employees—full- and part-time—are eligible for the annual incentive plan.
REI provides excellent benefits for part-time employees who maintain an average working balance of over 21 plus hours per week after one year of service.
High premiums for dependent and spouse/partner. Cost of premiums increase yearly, more than a good merit increase supplies. Compensation benefits package does not make up for extremely low pay scale and demanding availability. Part time staff are eligible for benefits if working more than 20 hours per week, a great perk. The flip side is that it can be very hard to maintain 20 hours per week, as the company may not schedule you when retail business is slow. There is a plan in place to have a minimum schedule commitment to employees, but management keeps it purposely low, sometimes 4 hour bottom floor.
The 401k is really nice. The managment cuts your hours because of the budget. If you go under 20 hours average, you do not qualify for benefits. Even if you have an open schedule you can loose your benefits.

Best thing about the benefits is that they cover so much. It is great health insurance.
Paid "Yay Day" every quarter. Time off is dependent on your manager so great for some awful for others. 401K is good. Health insurance has many options.
It has pretty good compensation for a retailer. The discounts on gear are so tempting that I frequently spend half of my paycheck on new apparel or recreation equipment. They have a retirement package and great benefits for employees.
Awesome Retirement and other benefits. No one in Seattle can touch them.
REI has an amazing profit sharing model (minimum of 5% of salary and up to 10% depending on company performance for the year). The bonus model is decent and competitive. The health benefits are also on par with most companies. The salary, however, is often lower than similar companies in the area.
Good benefits and nice HR
