About this company


Two brands:  Ann Taylor and LOFT. Thousands of Associates....across our multi-channel platform. One common philosophy: WE GET WOMEN.

At ANN INC., WE GET WOMEN. Real women live ever more complicated lives. They juggle more activities, play more roles, and carry more expectations. But what women value is what they have always valued: connecting with others, making smart choices, looking and feeling great. Living life fully means women choose to play all their roles with confidence and style. That is why we’re here.

We look for people who instinctively understand what a woman values, believes in, supports, defends, embraces and loves. People who can help women everywhere put their best selves forward. People who believe in challenging themselves to give their all, every day.

To us, a good “fit” goes beyond clothing and accessories. It needs to feel good on the inside, too. It shows in our confidence, our readiness to pitch in, and our belief in collaboration and “people first, people always.”

“Fit” can’t be summed up in a job description, but thousands of people who fit our unique style have built rewarding careers here. We hope you will, too!
