The Manager in Training (MIT) program is a 90-day blended-learning program focused on the essential skills needed to run a multi-million-dollar business. MIT’s are provided with a combination of support training, on-the-job learning, and coaching from their supervisor on the topics of Store Operations, Business Management, Customer Experience, Floor Supervision and Talent Management.
Successful completion of this program is the first step for leadership and will provide the foundational skills necessary for running a store and assist in building working relationships with the team.
The program includes regular touch points and a 30, 60, and 90 day progress check-in with the supervisor. This program empowers the MIT to develop autonomously and creates strong, long-term career guiding support from their team. Successful completion of this program will lead to the Assistant Manager role.
The company strongly advocates a philosophy of promotion from within. All of our District Managers, Regional Managers, Directors - even the Sr. Vice President of Stores- have gone through the MIT program. With the growth of the company domestically and internationally, career opportunities for an MIT have never been better.
