YOUR EXPERIENCE

We designed our internship program to be a game-changing first step in kicking off your career journey. For the first week of your internship, we will place you in one of our retail stores. We believe that learning the store retail business provides a strong foundation for success in corporate. For that week, you will work with our store leadership team to learn how the stores run and operate. For the remaining eight weeks of your internship, you will be a part of an intern cohort working at one of our corporate office locations. Our talent team will place you in a department based on your interviews, interests, and skill set. Throughout the program, you will attend business critical meetings, lead projects, gain experience working with cross-functional teams, attend professional trainings, and have the chance to brainstorm with our leadership team.

During your internship, you will be given the opportunity to pioneer a new idea for the brand or function you are working for.
