Internship Opportunities

Internships at American Apparel are offered on an as-needed basis. However, we're always on the look-out for bright, enthusiastic people to join our team of over 10,000 (and growing). American Apparel is a company that values innovation. If you have the skills and energy, we have the challenge and reward. We offer an environment that is fast, friendly, dynamic, and presents an excellent opportunity for the right person. In return, we require our interns to commit a minimum of 45 days.
