Interview attire?

#1
Hello everyone. :)

I have an interview coming up Monday for the seasonal position and is looking forward to it! :) May I ask what would be the appropriate attire to wear for the interview? I do not want to be overdressed.

I was thinking of wearing tan slacks and red turtleneck sweater with a makeshift name tag "Please Hire Me. :) " Would that be too much for the interview or come across as too cocky?

Thanks!

Yeh, it would. You'd be remembered but not necessarily in a good way.
Dressy casual slacks, open-collar polo or other nice shirt. Combed hair, no bed-head.
If you have piercings, wear the smaller ones.

Thank you.

After I posted, I realized it was too arrogant and decided to scratch that wardrobe idea. lol Plan to wear my black slacks and nice blouse.

Just don't want you to be the butt of TL jokes.
Tats & piercings are OK as long as they aren't overly distracting. Dressy casual & neat are your best bet.
Good luck on the interview.

Good luck on the interview.
I have read that you want to dress one step up from the standard dress of where you want to work, whatever that means.
Sounds like you went the right route.
Liked your original idea though.

thank you everyone. *sipping cup o java*

mrknownothing, just a seasonal position. I have put down sales floor or cashiering, I am pretty flexible.

Thank you Bullseye. I intend to update everyone on the status once I have my interview on MOnday. Do we find out immediately after interview if we are hired or not?

For the love of god, just make sure you don't wear jeans. You have no idea how many interviews I do where the prospective TM is wearing jeans and a tshirt.... soooo unprofessional.

we usually extend an offer right after second interview - only thing is - if there is no one there that is able to extend - they might call you within a day or two to come back. But no longer than that - Target needs to hire the seasonal TM right away in order to get you trained for BF

The majority of stores will extend a conditional job offer to you after the interview if they plan on hiring you. If you are just told to leave right after don't get your hopes down because there is still a slight chance they could do a call back for you, but the majority of the time you would be given the form for a drug test and conditional offer on the spot.

Holey jeans---checked
Stained shirt--checked
Serious case of bed hair--checked

Yup, I m looking good and all ready for the interview! In all seriousness, red turtleneck with black pin stripe slacks and hair nicely done. High heels..scratched that idea since I want to be comfortable so nice black shoes.

Will update you all when I am done with interview, job or no job.

Wish me luck!!
