The work environment at REI is fast-paced but fun. In meetings, good ideas win over years of service. Everyone at REI is passionate about their work and about delivering meaningful results for their customers. If you want to work, learn, and play in a high energy environment where what you do matters to millions of people, an REI internship is right for you.

Eligibility

REI hires both undergraduate and graduate students in our internship and co-op programs. You can be considered for participation if you are a full-time student at any four- or five-year, accredited U.S. college or university. Many of our successful interns receive full-time offers to return after graduation.

As a candidate under consideration for an internship or co-op assignment, you will need to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement, including GPA. You should have relevant work or research experience and be able to demonstrate strong leadership, communication, and teaming skills. You will also need to earn a highly rated evaluation during the interview process, which will also include a test to evaluate your aptitude and analytical skills.
