Summer 2024 Store Leadership Internship

Store Leadership Internship

Apply through the external application link via Handshake.


The Kohl's Store Leadership Internship provides an eight week experience for you to explore various aspects within a Kohl's store and an opportunity to lead directly alongside Store Executive Management. From Human Resources and Operations to Merchandising and Developing Teams, as a Store Leadership Intern you will be exposed to the behind the scenes of running a $10M-$20M+ dollar Kohl's store. The retail environment is evolving and so are our stores. During the internship, you will also gain exposure to omnichannel management. Learn what we sell, how we sell it, who we sell it to, and where we sell it.

The internship takes place inside a Kohl's store where you will not only learn store operations and how to drive sales but you will also learn about our most powerful asset: Our People. You will interact with, learn about, and engage with many different associates. In addition, you will spend time at the heart of the company: on the sales floor, with our Customers, helping us better understand how to fulfill and empower lives. You will also 
learn how to have courageous conversations, navigate peer to peer relationships, and how to lead and inspire teams (what we do best at Kohl's)!

If you are ready to jump start your leadership career, then join us here at Kohl’s!
