Youll get hands-on experience right where the action is – learning retail sales, customer service and merchandise-related skills.

This opportunity is a stepping stone leading into a full-time position in our Retail Leadership Development Program upon your graduation.

Our management interns spend their time working in one of our Kmart or Sears retail stores, seeing first-hand what goes into a successful retail business. The internship program is divided into several phases, each lasting from a few days to a few weeks. Youll work directly with an Assistant Store Coach, developing merchandising and leadership skills. Youll rotate through various store functions including receiving, replenishment, loss prevention, in-store support and human resources. This rotation allows you to gain a broad view of the retail industry, all while having an impact on the successful operation and management of a Kmart or Sears store. Your training will include formal and informal evaluations. Youll be assigned several challenging projects which will allow you to apply what youve learned in the classroom to a business setting.
