Footwear Merchandise Intern
Your Adventure Starts Here!
Bass Pro Shops Internship Program offers a 12-week immersive work program giving students a holistic overview of the business focusing on career and competency development while gaining valuable experience with a multifaceted company.
Here in Springfield, MO nestled among the natural beauty of the Missouri Ozarks, you’ll find Bass Pro Shops headquarters. We call it Base Camp. From here, it’s a short hike to pristine fishing holes, prime hunting grounds, wooded hills for camping, clear streams for canoeing, and much more. Why here instead of the big city? Because staying close to nature is a big part of who we are.
The Footwear Merchandising team is seeking an intern eager to learn, collaborate and build real-world experience in support of Bass Pro Shops portfolio of proprietary footwear brands. Throughout the course of the summer, the intern will work cross-functionally with the Merchandising, Planning and Inventory and Product Development teams on building the quarterly direct and retail business plan, meeting with vendors to negotiate seasonal buy plans and building reports to analyze and forecast trends. In alignment with our strategic initiatives and outdoor vision, you will have the opportunity to learn the everyday duties and responsibilities of a Bass Pro Merchant and contribute to a successful Fall 2022 product launch!
What our Interns get out of an Internship at Bass Pro Shops:
Working alongside talented individuals, you will be jumping in to assist with projects, research and work experience that directly impacts our business. As a key-player on the team, you will have professional development and networking opportunities with leadership in the organization to build your professional brand.
We can’t forget about the fieldtrips! You will have the opportunity to take team trips to learn about the many areas of our business. We will visit our Granddaddy retail store, Big Cedar Lodge and our Boat Manufacturing Plants offering a behind-the-scenes overview of the organization to get an immersive experience about our passion for the outdoors and conservation.
