    StarStarStarStarStar Current Supervisor in Kent, Washington State

    Generous benefits (health, retirement, vacation)

  • Feb 08, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Sales Specialist in Seattle, Washington State

    They make 401k plans really easy and actually start you off with 3% of your paycheck going directly into your 401k plan unless you say otherwise. Part-time employees are eligible for health insurance if they average working 20 hours (or more) a week for a whole year.

  • Feb 04, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Sales Associate in Des Moines, Iowa

    There is a 401k and health insurance/benefits available after you work at REI a year or 1000 hours. You must average at least 20 hours a week to qualify.

  • Jan 24, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current manager in Kent, Washington State

    Health care benefits are good but REI had made recent decision to put more of the health care costs on the employee so they are not as good as they used to be and not as competitive as Microsoft, Amazon or other companies. The profit-sharing program is not significant (unless you are VP or above) but is a positive thing to do.

  • Jan 03, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Visual Merchandiser in Seattle, Washington State

    If you stay long enough to get health benefits, it is very affordable (but not super comprehensive). The yearly bonuses are usually quite good. The retirement plan is ok- not super great until it starts vesting. The employee discount and prodeals are great.

  • Dec 11, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Boulder, Colorado

    REI has wonderful benefits, IF you'e full-time. Benefits include baseline coverage for medical, with the option to add dental and vision for just a little bit more. There are several tiers to choose from, and everything is customizable to your own needs.

  • Dec 06, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Kent, Washington State

    (+) great medical and retirement. Training opportunities (in the form of funds set aside for personal development). Year end performance based bonuses. Great discounts on industry brands. (-) lower than industry wages.
