    The best part of working for REI is that they care for the employees. It the little thing from part-time health benefits or employee discount.

    Excellent! REI is rated in top 100 companies to work for by Forbes. Excellent health and retirement benefits for full and part- time employees

    Great company discounts. They provide you with products or food to try so you can make better recommendations to your customers. Can go on leave (no pay) for more than a couple of weeks and still keep your job.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Customer Service Specialist in Houston, Texas

    Has good 401k, health insurance, vacation, and time off.

    Great discount and excellent health care package. Only kicker is employees typically start out part time, and you have to work a full year to be eligible for health care.

    Great benefits, healthcare, paid time off and sick pay even if you are part time! Not to mention the industry to discounts are not too bad either

    Great benefits, even for part-time staff. Had an excellent, affordable Kaiser plan for myself and my partner. Pretty standard vacation and sick time policies, both are accrued. Solid retirement plan for retail.

    For full time employees, they offer 401k, healthcare, dental, and all of the normal things you'd expect. I'm not too knowledgeable on that, because I am a part time employee. What all REI employees get are discounts, Yay Day, and so many more things. Discounts: REI employees get 50% off REI products if they are purchasing them for themselves, as well as 30% off pretty much all products in store (I think there are a few exceptions, like for kayaks and things like that). You also get 30% off purchases that are made for other people, as long as you aren't getting compensated from that other person. So, a gift basically. The biggest thing though is Pro Deals. You order them directly from the vendor, and get insane discounts (50-80% off market price sometimes). It does take a while to come in but when purchasing high priced items like skis or coolers, this is a great deal. Yay Day Basically, every six months, you get a day where you can go do whatever you want and you get paid like you worked a shift that day. Only problem is that it is given out on a card, and I lose mine easily. REI really likes to treat their employees well, and each store has it's own benefits. Mine offers discounts to places around town to eat or play. They also offer a set number of free counseling services each year to their employees, which is good for mental health.
