Pros

Work life balance, growth oppotunity and a company that does the right thing are three of the main reasons to come to REI.

Cons

REI has some times when change is hard to make happen. This is changing, but it makes for interesting change management issues.

Advice to Management

Keep doing the job that you are doing. Sally Jewell is extremely forward thinking and with her leadership, we are moving in the right direction and setting the CO-OP up for success.

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic. Both medically and through the ProDeal system. Also, time off is granted for almost any reason (again, due to retail).

    Cons

    During slow retail times of the year (January - March) it is extremely difficult to get the hours you need in order to pay rent.

    Advice to Management

    Positive feedback on a regular basis is MANDATORY to maintain happy employees. My immediate supervisors were fantastic, but the Store Manager had much to be desired.

    Pros

    Benefits for part time employees, encouraging environment, flexibililty with scheduling, opportunity to advance, great employee perks.

    Cons

    May not be great for someone looking for full time work. When I was there, the hours were good, but not really guaranteed.
