You'll recycle your paycheck. ;)

    I worked at REI as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, fun products, good technology, respectful environment.

    Cons

    Very low pay rate for contract work, unpleasant suburban location which is not at all transit friendly or close to anything interesting. That's unfortunate for a company widely thought to be "in Seattle".

    I have been working at REI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Killer discounts, transportation subsidies, health insurance, paid holidays, paid vacation time, and free outdoor school classes make working at REI totally worth it. Also, getting to talk about the things you love all day makes the day go by pretty fast.

    Cons

    Very demanding management makes enjoying the "outdoors atmosphere" quite difficult. They are very strict about things like taking breaks on time, talking to other employees, and wearing unapproved attire on the floor. The scheduling can also take a toll on you. People often get scheduled for "clopens", meaning working until 10pm then have to be at the store at 6am the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up a little
