Overview

If you want real world retail experience with one of largest off-price retailers in the nation, join the nationally-ranked Burlington Stores, Inc. internship program as a Buying Intern!

You and the other members of your summer intern class will receive a comprehensive orientation program to get your started on the right foot. You'll be partnered with a current Assistant Buyer who will serve as your "buddy" for support and guidance. Throughout the summer, you'll participate in Leadership Development Seminars, Classroom-style training in areas like Retail Math and Microsoft Excel, visits to market in NYC or LA, tours of our stores and distribution centers, shadowing days where you can explore alternative career paths and learn about other key parts of the business, and community service projects - not to mention a variety of team-building social activities to help you get to know your intern class!

Upon graduation, many alumni of our internship program go on to join our team as full-time Assistant Buyers and enjoy a clear career path, where high-performing associates can rise through the ranks from Assistant Buyer to Associate Buyer, Associate Buyer to Buyer, Buyer to Senior Buyer, Senior Buyer to Merchandise Manager, and Merchandise Manager to Divisional Merchandise Manager/VP & beyond!
