Coach was founded in 1941 as a family-run workshop.  Inspired by a baseball glove, its distinctive markings and how supple the leather became with use, the founder created Coach’s first bag.

In a Manhattan loft, six artisans handcrafted a collection of high-quality leather goods using skills handed down from generation to generation. Discerning consumers soon began to seek out the quality and unique nature of Coach craftsmanship.

Our business is founded on the concept of a single consumer, a single product, and a single sale or transaction.

Over the last decade, we have built Coach into a leading international accessories company with a loyal and highly engaged consumer franchise.

In 2016, Coach moved to its new global headquarters—a 52-story LEED Gold designed tower—at 10 Hudson Yards.


Adjacent to the High Line—an elevated urban park redesigned from a former freight railway line—the section bordering our building will become a focal point for cultural events.

 

Coach employees enjoy a true urban campus at the forefront of a renaissance in Manhattan.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coach (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews in one day and I heard back from HR within the next week. The interview took place at their headquarters. I was greeted by someone from the HR department and had all three interviews back to back. Very well organized process!
