    Hahaa. I'd like to see these "Hawaiian" shirts. What the tourists wear and what I see on the mainland are not the typical Hawaiian/Aloha attire. Even, we in Hawaii, have our standards.

    Be early, but not too early! Being late is bad, but being too early is just as bad. It makes you seem like you have nothing better to do then to mope around waiting. 10 mins sounds good.

    Or so Digg has told me with countless interview articles promoted to homepage <G>

    Unless otherwise specified, I would just wear business casual. I wore to my interview what I wear to work everyday, which is a nice shirt (in my case, a short sleeved polo with a white undershirt), black slacks, and dress shoes.

    I know that when I got an interview at Fry's the told me what to wear, but if they don't, you should always wear something that looks professional.

    I just went for an interview a week ago and the first thing the guy said to me was "Leather shoes. That's a plus right there." Too many candidates in Nike's it seems. It really does come down to the place you're applying to, and the position. For a sales position at Office Max I'd suggest dress shirt, tie, good pants and good shoes. It's a pretty rigourous interview if they check your underwear, so those tatty Sponge Bob ones should be OK.

    Now if you're applying to Trader Joe's I have it on good authority that under NO circumstances should you wear a tie to the interview, and should you reach the 4th interview with the regional VP, then they will be in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts.

    I'm sorry ManagerJosh. Your post = out of context. If I had not read your previous posts (in conjunction with Dean's) I would have taken your last post another way.

    Don't wear anything at all. I'm serious. That's a good way of annoying your potential employer.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of cologne, but nothing overbearing.

    While this is usually true, dress is only part of the process.

    Well, unless the full monty is in the job description; then sure, it's all good.

    I agree with your post. I just wanted to add: In most cases (even for CEO, COO, President positions and on down...) a suit isn't (always) necessary. Just dress the part.

    Nothing wrong with dressing nicely, no need for a sports jacket, but a shirt tie and pants are not overkill.
