daaaamn, i'm on my gap year, just got an interview with JJB sports as a shop floor assistant...
Is it a good idea to wear a suit to it? Lets be honest, its not a high end job, its just a shop floor position handling stock, putting clothes on racks etc, pretty much anyone from the public can do it...its an unskilled position.
With that in mind, on the one hand I want to make it look as if I care about appearences, on the other hand I don't want to look like I am trying too hard and think I am above myself...arrrrgh the pro's and cons cancel each other out and I don't know wtf to do.
Any advice? What would you think of someone walking in a suit to a unskilled job interview? Should I just go in smart casual instead?
Thanks in advance.
To wear or not to wear? watch

You think it's unskilled, but whenever I go into a job interview, I always see the other interviewees wearing suits and stuff. It doesn't portray that you're above yourself, it just says that you're willing to look presentable for the job and will make an effort. Should always wear a suit, no matter what job interview you go in for (even Mc Donalds ).

as ashamed of it as i am, i went for a job interview at mcdonalds (needed the money as car needed insuring and i cant live without driving my car!) i wore smart black trousers, black pumps and a black jumper/shirt thing...was like an open shirt with a black jumper over the top.
I got the job, didnt feel as if i were mocking the establishment by looking to casual nor did i feel overdressed hope this helps

I wore smart trousers and a blouse to my interview at NEXT. Everyone else who was there was dressed smarter than me - girls in skirt suits and guys in proper suits. I go the job
