great health insurance, employee annual bonus dependent on yearly membership sales, paid time off, just wish employees were paid a living wage
Yay! Day, 2 times a year where you get paid to go outside and live the REI values. Ideal for a workplace where you want to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
REI has the core benefits and a generous bonus and 401k, but the biggest draw has always been the culture. Unfortunately in the last few years they have lost their way. I hope they address it soon so it doesn't become a turn and burn environment. The company is too cool for that.
It's an expensive benefits package, most of my paycheck goes into paying for my benefits. If you don't maintain a certain amount of hours, you lose your health insurance, which sucks because often times they cut hours so drastically that there's no way any staff can maintain the proper number of hours to keep insurance. You have to work 20 hours a week to maintain benefits, and I worked an average of 19.85 hours, but they will not budge on letting me keep my benefits. Also no vacation or paid time off if you're part time, no matter how long you've worked there.
Benefits package is great. The insurance is reasonable, you get great gear discounts and profit sharing.
A robust package with lots of different options from 401K to medical + dental to discounts + commuter transit perks to employee discounts +prodeals, etc
Health insurance is the best benefit of REI. The premiums are lower. Also the annual bonus is a nice perk. It is like a dividend, but for employees.
The benefits package is great at REI.
Tiered vacation time-off is meager. Especially to start: only 2 weeks. Great contributions to 401K
Best is the ability to have your own flex plan and stock options for retirement
