Legacy Internship Program


The Legacy Program is an 8 week full time paid internship program that Haddad Brands offers during the summer. Legacy interns get hands-on experience that directly relates to their course of study.


During the program you will:

  • Work with a mentor that will provide training and guidance to ensure you grow and learn the most you can during the program.
  • Sit in on our Speaker Series, where you will glean key insights from a number of top executives.
  • Create a project based around a real business challenge selected by your mentor. You will then present your innovative solution to a panel of judges who will award the winning interns’ idea a $1,000 scholarship.
  • Visit our world class distribution center and learn about the innovations we’ve made.

Launch Rotational Program

Our Launch Rotational Program is offered to recent college graduates, allowing them the opportunity to work in 3 different segments of the company before being placed in a department full time.

During the program you will:

  • Work with mentors that will provide feedback to ensure optimal growth during the program.
  • Build a deep practical knowledge of each department within Haddad Brands.
  • Participate in small monthly lunches where Launch Associates get face to face exposure with executives.

Limitless

At Haddad Brands we know your potential is limitless. We created a program that lets M.B.A. students/graduates stretch their imaginations, and make their dreams become reality.

How it works:

  • Propose an internship concept to our company. The concept should be centered on helping our business grow in new and creative ways. Feel free to reach out, and we can provide help for the formulation process.
  • After we accept your concept, we will ask for a detailed outline (What do you plan to do? How do you plan to do it? What is the expected outcome? How would we continue your vision after the internship?).
  • We will consider all submissions and accept any that we think will benefit our business.

How the internship works:

  • You will work with C-Suite executives in the department(s) connected to your proposal as you work on actualizing your plan.
  • You will manage your project from start to finish, with guidance from our executive staff.

    I worked at Haddad Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity to grow personally with lots of tasks and responsibilities, given that the international side of the business is expanding at a very rapid rate. Great work life balance. Management always open to talk to about new ideas - entrepreneurial spirit. If you want to learn everything about the industry from the moment a clothing item gets designed to the moment it reaches the customer, this is the perfect place to be. You will learn everything. Design, sourcing, marketing, sales, operations etc. Exposed to all areas of the business. If you are really passionate about the brands that the company represents and have some international experience, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great and the benefits could be better, but given the fashion industry standards, it's not that bad.

    Planner Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Haddad Brands (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online and was called into an interview with an HR person. She was lovely asked me about my background and experience. She had a very pleasant demeanor. Was called back for a second interview to meet with management. I was supposed to meet with 3 ppl and only ended up meeting with one because everyone else was suddenly busy or in a meeting. This left a very bad impression on me and to top it of, i was told that there was no open positions but these interviews were more "exploratory". Needless to say i was pretty annoyed.
