    Hi, got my first ever job interview next week at Halfords. I've been asked to wear all black clothes and shoes to blend in with the staff. I literally have no idea about what should I wear? how casual can I be? trainers? shirt? t shirt?

    They wear black trousers and a Halfords black/orange top, obviously can't wear that. Just think that a black shirt would look very strange, don't see many of them these days

    From what I can see on google images, I would say a black polo would be okay. Unless you have a Black and orange one lol.

    Don't wear trainers. Wear smart shoes.

    Hello afctom,

    from the date of your interview, how many days did it take for them to say you have the job? Also hold long did it take for you to get a uniform?

    I had the telephone interview, then about a week later got the store interview which went really well, and got offered the job the next day.Didn't get uniform for about 2 months! but just wore a plain black polo top and borrowed someone else's jumper.

    I don't work there anymore though, wasn't very good to be honest, but best of luck!
