What's cool about this job

REI is committed to becoming a fully inclusive, antiracist, multicultural organization. To fulfill our brand promise of enabling a life well-lived outside for everyone, we are seeking candidates who demonstrate shared values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism.

This position contributes to the REI Co‐op’s success by effectively leading, teaching, and inspiring guests on REI’s single day or overnight outdoor experiences. Day Guides operate independently or under limited supervision; they primarily lead day programs and tours, and select overnight trips. They are responsible for program preparation, delivery and reporting, managing program logistics, assessing and mitigating risks, and providing on‐site incident management. REI Guides ensure guests participate in an inclusive, enjoyable, and interactive environment, and serve as subject matter experts and inspirational teachers, drawing from natural, historic, and cultural knowledge; they provide exceptional customer service and a high‐level of hospitality and personalization, while exercising sound judgement and maintaining group safety to exceed guest expectations. REI Guides model and act in accordance with the co‐op’s guiding values and mission. REI Guide qualifications vary depending on the type of program being led and the location of the activity.

As a Single Day Guide at REI, you will:

●Demonstrate technical expertise in relevant activities to ensure a positive customer experience.

●Prepare for programs including learning/developing content, preparing equipment and materials and coordinating program logistics

●Drive a 15 passenger van to transport customers and gear safely to and from adventure destinations

●Collaborate with other REI guides and staff to cultivate and maintain an enjoyable, social and engaging group dynamic through strong interpersonal and relational skills

Bring your passion and expertise

If you love hiking, biking, climbing, paddling, or Nordic skiing and want to share your passion with others, the single-day guide position might be right for you! The ability to guide all of the programs that we offer is NOT required, but more skills will provide you the opportunity for more guide assignments.
