Founded in 1670, HBC is the oldest company in North America. Today, we are widely recognized as a diversified global retailer, focused on driving the performance of high-quality stores and their omni-channel offerings, as well as unlocking the value of real estate holdings. Today, HBC's portfolio includes more than 480 stores, ranging from luxury destinations to off-price locations. Worldwide, HBC is proud to have more than 65,000 employees.
HBC's leading banners across North America and Europe include Hudson's Bay, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks OFF 5TH, Galeria Kaufhof (the largest department store group in Germany), and Galeria INNO, Belgium's only department store group.
HBC also has significant investments in real estate joint ventures. We have partnered with Simon Property Group Inc. in the HBS Global Properties Joint Venture, which owns properties in the United States and Germany. In Canada, it has partnered with RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust in the RioCan-HBC Joint Venture.
We have a history of making history.
HBC has been operating and excelling at what we do for hundreds of years, meaning that we’ve adapted to some pretty monumental changes since our initial charter back in 1670. (See our Heritage Site—we aren’t even kidding).
We are proud to be known for our longevity and our historical significance. Our iconic point blankets, which have become a huge part of the fabric of Canada, are seen as an unofficial symbol of Canadians.
Even though we’ve grown and adapted for centuries, we’re passionately looking toward the future. We’re proudly redefining an international retail experience and tackling the challenges and opportunities of a limitless, digital landscape.
Diversity & Inclusion: HBC is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our Associates are empowered to lead, support one another, and make contributions that drive their teams and businesses forward – things we believe make HBC a great place to work. Each of our Associates comes to work with different experiences and backgrounds, and we believe that our diverse points of view are the pillars of HBC’s success. Our differences make us stronger and contribute to the innovative ideas that will power us into the future.
As an HBC employee, you can rest assured that you will be well taken care of. Here are 5 reasons you will love working at HBC:
When you walk into one of our stores, our Associates are friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is inviting, the displays are eye-catching, the merchandise is top notch—and none of this happens by accident. We’ve redesigned retail over past several decades—and we’d love for you to help lead us even further into the future.
Three words come to mind when you think of our corporate division: Organization, insight, and creativity. Because of our corporate centers, where so much of the HBC creative journey takes shape, our store locations and websites run like well-oiled machines. From buyers and planners to marketing and finance and everything in between, HBC offers as many varied and enthralling job opportunities as its stores offer brands and styles.
We’re adventurers and innovators—and we have taken bold risks and charted new paths to get to where we are today. Your academic background has given you the tools you need to excel, and HBC is the ideal enterprise to flex your knowledge and put all your ideas into practice.
One thing has taken us this far since 1670: People. We reward people for taking initiative, getting creative, and getting the job done.
Whether it’s at Hudson’s Bay, Saks Fifth Avenue, Home Outfitters, Lord & Taylor or Saks OFF 5TH, our programs — from executive training to in-store sales careers — will differentiate you from the mainstream and help you join a team that has been leading in reinvention since day one.
