Employees say:

 

“I am very proud of the way REI gives back to the outdoor community with grants to local outdoor projects and non-profit groups and partnering with the National Park Foundation. Every year our employees log thousands of volunteer hours—on and off the clock—and support local outdoor events, fundraisers, and groups like the Special Olympics and the Wounded Warrior Project. We plant trees, clean up steams, build trails and teach kids about how to be safe and have fun in the outdoors. I also love our new ‘Yay day’ program that gives each employee a chance to have a paid day off to enjoy the outdoors in our own way!”

 

“Great environment—fun, inspiring, relaxed, with talented people. I love that people have a job and are trusted by management to do their job. Benefits are great (discounts, flexible scheduling, Yay days, insurance options, retirement plan, etc.) and appreciated. Love that REI makes a difference in the local community where stores are located—grants to area non-profits, volunteer stewardship events, gear donations, classes for members/customers to get connected to the outdoors. Great and solid leadership!”
