We know that successful off-price merchandising requires a unique set of skills, so we offer the Planning and Allocation School of Excellence, which we believe is one of the best training programs in the retail industry.
Our program was specifically designed – and is continually updated – to help develop the leadership skills of savvy, passionate, business-minded Associates.
The merchandising career path provides structured growth potential in Merchandise Planning and Allocation, Merchandise Buying and possibly Management. The program consists of an initial, intensive training curriculum as you begin your first role as an Allocation Analyst. Afterwards, there are ongoing developmental opportunities and mentoring throughout your career. It's a unique chance to learn about the world of merchandising in a corporate setting where there are opportunities for growth. And, because we are a global retailer, there may also be opportunities available to travel or work internationally as your career in merchandising progresses.
