At Kohl’s, our mission is to inspire and empower families to lead fulfilled lives. And there’s no more rewarding job than that. Because it’s not just about selling things. It’s about letting customers know that the things that make their lives better are within their reach. We build great brands, launch new technologies to make shopping easier, contribute our time and dollars to improve the world we live in and dream up ways to empower our customers and Associates to create a life they love. Our Associates make a difference in the lives of our customers. Let us make a difference in yours. Welcome to Kohl’s.
The Kohl's Merchandise Analyst Internship provides a ten week experience for you to explore all aspects of running a multi-million dollar business in one of our Merchant Buying Offices. Kohl’s has around 70 Buying Offices. Each Buying Office consists of a team that is in charge of running (buying, pricing, marketing, inventory allocation, etc.) a category of business within Kohl’s. During your ten weeks you will be placed in one of these Buying Offices and have the opportunity to learn the job responsibilities of each role and how they work together to drive sales and profitability.
As an Intern you will be doing real work that will have an impact on the business. You will startby learning Kohl’s lingo and systems by attending classes and panels your first couple weeks. You will also learn how to read and analyze data to better understand your category of business. Once you get a general understanding of Kohl’s and what a Buying Office does, you will continue to learn about your category of business by competitive shopping, and presenting best selling products to your team. The last few weeks of your internship will be focused on developing and presenting a strategy. Also known as a business plan to increase sales and profitability for your business.
