TJX is the leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer worldwide, and Merchandising is the heart of our business! In fact, no other team impacts our bottom line more. We believe that we operate one of the most flexible business models in the world. And it’s that flexibility has enabled us to succeed through various economic and retail environments year after year.
If you are interested in a career in Retail Merchandising, this is the program for you. Are you looking to Discover Different?
Merchandising Basics: Two Divisions One Goal.
Merchandising is comprised of two divisions, Buying and Planning & Allocation. They work together to drive sales and profit for TJX. Our Buyers are global travelers, sourcing from a universe of over 21,000 vendors and more than 100 countries to deliver outstanding merchandise at exciting value to our customers every day.
The Opportunity: Never the Same Day Twice.
Our Merchandising Internship opportunities exist in our California Buying Office in downtown Los Angeles, CA as well as our Corporate Home Office in Framingham, MA. Our approach to Merchandising is unlike any other retailer. From day one and throughout the entire, paid summer internship, you’ll experience classroom and on-the-job training that will help you understand how our business works and how Merchandising impacts the bottom line.
Throughout the internship, there are many opportunities to Discover Different—by networking and interacting with all levels of management and participating in educational workshops, projects and team-building events. As an Intern, you will be assigned to a specific category of business within Planning & Allocation or Buying. Placement is determined based on business needs.
In a business where you never experience the same day twice, here is a sampling of how we’ll challenge you to think creatively and drive for results:
/ Analyze sales reports and make recommendations in the business
/ Build allocation strategies for our stores
/ Accompany Buyers on local or on-site vendor visits
/ Visit stores to analyze our product mix as well as our competitors
/ Resolve merchandise issues with our Distribution Centers, Buyers, and Vendors
/ Work with other Interns to complete a project within your business and present to upper management
