I've landed an interview tomorrow at Office Max. It's for part-time work. I have always been in the corporate world and have always suited up for interviews. I'm at a loss on this one. Do I wear a suit??? Sounds like too much to me,... it's not for a job in their corporate office. It's a job in one of their stores. I'm thinking a nice pair of pants and a nice sweater, with a scarf maybe???

What do you think?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dosent matter. I interviewed for a seasonal Kohl's job in a business suit and heels. You know what that got me? Respect. I was treated with much more respect, they were quick to give me responsiblities first. They put me, untrained, into the customer service department rather then on the floor.

I made a point to not make them regret their choice and when I left they basically begged me to stay.

First impressions are essential no matter what job you interview for.

I think if you have a suit, you wear it. I am old school that way. Hopefully, someone from retail will chime in.

Yup me too. I say if you have suits and Corporate clothes you should wear them.

I'm old school too. The only interviews I have not dressed up for are the ones when I have been working already, and the Manager knows me. Then I showed up in scrubs a time or two, but felt very odd doing it.

The only time I did not wear a business suit to an interview was for the bird watching tour company when the person interviewing me told me not to--they wore shorts to work. I went to the interview in a linen safari jacket with matching linen pants. There was no way I was going to an interview in shorts.

You are important and you matter. Your feelings matter. Your voice matters. Your story matters. Your life matters. Always.

Thank you for your responses. I did wear a suit, slacks, a suit jacket and heals. The interview seemed so easy and went very well. Was offered a job on the spot. Tomorrow I go for my drug test, then the background test and I start in a week after that.

Thank you SI friends for letting me toss my wardrobe question to you.
