What people are saying about REI
The Real Estate Bowl
For those with a W2 and who are REI - does anyone use their REI income to contribute to a solo 401k? Already maxing out my 401k through my W2 and looking for additional tax benefits through solo 401k (to my understanding it would be an “employer contribution”)
Got a burning question about benefits at REI? Just ask!

Used to be great part time health benefits
Great discounts, health benefits for all, vacation accrual is amazing for retail.
The access to discounts on outdoor gear was REALLY good, the discounts were massive. It did lead most employees to spend a lot of their extra savings on gear though.
Good work/life balance. Medical, dental, and vision are all good and employee cost is pretty reasonable especially considering the cost of REI's share for medical. Once you qualify to contribute to a 401(k), REI will put a percentage of your salary in your plan at the end of the year regardless if you have contributed or not. This percentage is better than what many other companies offer in the form of a match. Time off accrual is also generous, up to 21 days per year after five years of service. Accrual is up to 11 days for less than 3 years of service, up to 16 days for 3-5 years of service. Besides employee discounts on purchases, there are a lot of other perks and benefits, but the health insurance, retirement, and vacation time are all better than many other large companies, even more so for part-time employees that qualify.
Wish it was a little less expensive, but decent benefits.
401 K even if you are part time
