Fashion Allocation Intern with a Love of Fashion and Great with Numbers

Do you have a passion for fast fashion? Have you always seen yourself working with a successful retail Company? YM Inc. is home to multiple fashion brands you know and love. Why join us? Because what we do is really cool!


Have you always dreamed about learning more about the fashion industry and having input on what people will be wearing next season? Do you love numbers, and being able to find the answers and create a plan through analytics?

At YM Inc, we provide a wealth of opportunities whether it is a first job or a lifelong profession. When we hire someone, we want to keep them for as long as we can. Therefore, promoting from within is part of our culture. In addition, we offer rewarding challenges in a fast-paced and unique environment within the ever-changing curve of fashion retail. On top of that, you get to enjoy benefits like continuous hands-on training and learning programs and engaging corporate events as well as a fantastic employee discount.


As an Allocation Intern, you will be working alongside the talented allocations team, buyers and the import team where you will learn how to stock a store properly with the right merchandise and size runs.

In this role you will:

  • Utilize your education in different situations:
    • Learn how to develop a weekly allocations plan in different categories
    • Learn how math, geography and other factors are used when figuring out assortments
    • Use your retail math courses in real life situations. Examples, unit sales, gross profit, percent turn, etc.
    • Learn how to analyze results and to act quickly to ensure stores are properly stocked


  • Currently attending one of the awesome post-secondary schools and enrolled in a relevant fashion program
  • Have worked in a retail setting before, understand customers and how stores operate to be able to fill the racks with this season’s stylish selection of merchandise
  • Everyone knows how to use MS Office these days, but if you are an Excel wiz… Perfect!

Our best Allocation Interns also have outstanding organizational skills, superhuman time management abilities and an amazing memory for details. Please note that you should only apply if your education requires you to complete hours to graduate.

Passion, initiative and a relentless desire to keep learning are all must-haves when we are looking for new talent. Our team is as diverse as the merchandise we carry. We strive to find people who are both team players and top performers, eager to grow within the Company and able to reach new heights together with us.


At YM Inc, we are always first with fashion. We believe that everyone should have access to clothing they love to wear. We make it our mission to not only provide the latest styles and trends, but to make them affordable. Across all our brands, we provide value for today’s trends for kids, teens and adults. We are one of North America’s leading apparel retailers operating over 700 stores across Canada and the United States under the following banners: Stitches, Urban Planet, Urban Behavior, Sirens, Urban Kids, West49, Amnesia, Suzy Shier, Bluenotes, Mandee, and Charlotte Russe. By developing the best shopping experience and offering the best retail brands and prices, we are well positioned to continue our success, now and in the future. The only thing missing is you!
