People working

Inventory Management

Inventory Management employees guide financial and inventory investment decisions–so you have to be analytically savvy, with an ability to assess a wide range of data to make profitable decisions for both in season and for the future. 

You're forecasting sales, triggering promotions and executing markdowns to capitalize on opportunities in season and strategically predict the future by determining product demand, style by style, for upcoming seasons through in-depth analysis of historical sales and current business.

Merchandising

In Merchandising, you're responsible for seeing product through the eyes of the customer. Each season, you work with cross-functional teams to develop a trend-right collection of styles and predict customer needs to build compelling assortments for markets around the world.  

You’re comfortable telling your products' stories to groups of all sizes and people from all levels and react to in-season business to drive sales, profitability and growth.
