Merchandising Intern (Summer 2018)
At Bon-Ton, you are contributing member of the team from the very start! During our 3 month internship, our goal is for you to not just learn the basics of the corporate retail through various classes and experiences, but gain real on-the-job training to immediately apply. To learn these skills, our program has the perfect combination of group learning and one-on-one training, allowing each individual to grow their talents, gain responsibility and make an impact!
Interns work in the Milwaukee corporate offices spending half the time job shadowing Assistant Buyers gaining an understanding of what a career in Merchandising is all about. Assistant Buyers help identify what products our customer wants, how we can partner with vendors to obtain those products, and aid in the creation of the advertising to market them. Interns will also participate in in-store activities combined with tours of the distribution center and photo studio to develop a holistic business perspective that teaches how to make efficient business decisions and create innovative new strategies. Interns also receive face time with all the Executive Management providing exceptional visibility within Bon Ton.
This isn’t your average internship; it’s a jump into a career!
