    Pros

    REI really takes care of their own, they are committed to professional development and service to the public. I truly believe people shopping there are getting a good experience and the staff are happy and willing to help at all costs.

    Cons

    The pay is a bit low, hard to make ends meet here in New York City, but that's the retail life.
