    Je travaille chez REI à plein temps

    Avantages

    The job is fun - you're not offering products to people to do something they don't want to do, they're going outside and are excited about it, and in turn this inspires you.

    The benefits are fair, although not tremendous. Great discounts on gear (an awesome thing if you're a part timer and want to get latest and greatest equipment for cheap)

    They DO promote within. In my experience, opportunities have been provided due to motivation, prior experience and a good work ethic. They offer a pathway for moving up in the company if you're interested and show an aptitude for it.

    The co-op's direction is inspiring and makes every employee feel like they count. This creates a real family vibe within the stores when we're working together.

    Inconvénients

    Pay could be better. It IS retail, but it's a bit of a struggle sometimes. If I were stressed out here more often, I'd likely change jobs but, you're paid for stress. Don't work here expecting to get rich. I wouldn't mind seeing a company wide increase in starting wages, although that usually takes from benefits elsewhere.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you're doing and driving the mission home. Just consider investing in the employees just a bit more.

    J'ai travaillé chez REI à temps partiel (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Fantastic people, great time off, and discounts. Many of my best friends are green vests.

    Inconvénients

    A truly fantastic place to work for the first 6 months to a year. After that, you will leave work utterly frustrated every day.

    Conseils à la direction

    Please listen to your staff for suggestions to improve and departments/positions they are interested in. I worked at three different stores with three different management teams. All three stores kept me in a department where I was a leader and excelled but had no interest in. They were willing to promote me to sales lead multiple times but my schedule would not allow it and thus punished me by keeping me in customer service to slowly lose my mind. I would likely still be at REI if I were simply able to transfer departments. I was told by management that because I don't brag about my outdoor accomplishments, they had no idea I was knowledgeable. My fellow coworkers, however, knew I was one of the most knowledgeable people on staff.

    J'ai travaillé chez REI en contrat permanent (Plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    REI is usually a fun place to work. The pace can be fast, and it’s very customer centric, so if you like that (like I did), you’ll thrive there. Part-time employees can become eligible for health care, which is nice. Some people list pro-deals (steep industry discounts) as a benefit, I feel ambivalent about them. You will meet some great people at the co-op: students, retirees, seasonal outdoor pros (guides, biologists, geologists, etc), and folks that will help you get into sports/activities you haven’t done. Never gone backpacking? Someone will definitely take you on a trip. Climb a mountain? Same-same. Many stores also have an employee gear bank, so you can gear up for a trip without first having to outfit yourself. This is the segway into the cons...

    Inconvénients

    You will be broke. You will be paid peanuts, even as a manager. Until you are promoted to Store Manager, you will not be earning a living wage in most of California. You will be outfitting people who do have money. Every day. Yes, you get psyched for their adventures (I’m not a hater), and that makes you want to outfit yourself. Yes, you get sweet deals, but 50% off of a $3000 bike or kayak is still way more than you can afford to spend if you are making $13 an hour and working 30 hours per week. Also, you are in an environment designed to stimulate buying (as with all retail environments), and this will effect you as well. I have way more Nalgene bottles and t shirts than I will ever need. If you want to make the co-op a career, that will require getting promoted past Retail Sales Manager, unless you like eviction and malnourishment. Unfortunately, REI is rather opaque in terms of how you can actually do this, and 3 to 5 percent annual raises are not super awesome. There is a lot of carrot dangling and not a lot of bona fide growth.

    Je travaille chez REI à plein temps (Plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    Benefits for part-time employees after 1 year. Closed Black Friday AND paid for it! Great overall benefits for all employees. Company and vendor pro-deals are fantastic. Culture is one that encourages inclusion and teamwork. It all comes down to the people you work with, but overall, you will find like-minded outdoor enthusiasts who are hard workers.

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes you will find that staff members can be complacent and not have the same drive as others. Most people would say that they love working for REI, but some will complain no matter what company they are working for. It can be a challenge to be around negative people with their negative comments, as in any job. It’s just weird to find these people working for such a cool company and still find things to complain about without offering any solutions.

    Conseils à la direction

    Remember to be encouraging and inspiring. The days can be long and the work loads heavy - there are a lot of initiatives that are pushed to stores by headquarters- as with most retailers. It can be a lot all at once and can be overwhelming for staff. It’s important to thank those that do show up ready to take on the day!
