Distribution Operations Leadership Internship Program
Are you curious about a career in Distribution or Supply Chain? Are you energized by problem solving to increase productivity? Are you excited by leaving a desk behind to explore a career that allows you to execute strategies for a global supply chain operation? The Distribution Operations Leadership Internship Program will give you the skills and experience to jumpstart your career within our TJX Global Distribution Network.
The TJX Distribution Centers are the hubs of our worldwide logistics operation. Our DC Leadership Teams are comprised of entrepreneurial problem solvers who are responsible for millions of units in inventory, developing creative plans to optimize the flow of merchandise, as well as engaging and inspiring their teams.

For 12 weeks through the summer, you will join our Distribution Operations team and receive robust training and development through a mix of classroom learning, on-the-job training and ongoing mentorship from your leadership team. You will learn how retail operations and our distribution centers work together; and introduce you to the engineering standards that keep our business running efficiently.
