Store Management Trainee (MIT)

Overview

Looking for a career where you can own your personal development? Where the self motivated are valued and teamwork is just as important? Where you can WIN everyday? Look no further! This is not only the place, but the path.

Store Management Trainees, or MITs (Manager-in-Trainees) as you’ll hear us refer to them as, go through a 12 week structured training program that prepares them to be Assistant Store Managers in multi-million dollar Kohl’s stores. Our MITs love fast paced environments where change is the only constant. They are emotionally and professionally resilient, which will be needed as they are learning all aspects of the retail business and how to build great teams. They take a hands-on approach to learning and actively seek out information to make smart decisions. Upon successful completion of the program, they are then placed as an Assistant Store Manager, but the winning doesn’t stop there…

Our Managers don’t just sell socks and underwear. They support the communities and causes our Customers and Associates care about through initiatives like the Kohl’s Volunteer Program and Kohl’s Cares for Kids. They earn trust by living up to their commitments and embrace diverse perspectives. They see our customers as a constant source of inspiration and guidance, take a “Yes We Can” approach to everything they do, and actively empower, engage, and continually develop all of their Associates.

If this sounds like your idea of winning, then join us here at Kohl’s!
