Merchandising Basics: Two Divisions One Goal.

Merchandising is comprised of two divisions, Buying and Planning & Allocation. They work together to drive sales and profit for TJX. Our Buyers are global travelers, sourcing from a universe of over 22,000 vendors and more than 100 countries to deliver outstanding merchandise at exciting value to our customers every day.

From our inclusive culture to our post-grad Merchandising Career Path, TJX is the perfect choice for anyone looking to work hard—and have fun doing it! Our diverse team, with a wide array of backgrounds, thoughts and experiences makes our mission come to life.

The Opportunity: Never the Same Day Twice.

Throughout the internship, there are many opportunities to Discover Different—by networking and interacting with all levels of management and participating in educational workshops, projects and team-building events. As an Intern, you will be assigned to a specific category of business within Planning & Allocation or Buying. Placement is determined based on business needs.
