    What to wear to a grocery store job interview?

    So the last time i went to a interview i was looking pretty professional. It turns out i was the only person in there with nice clothes on and this was an interview at UPS. About 4 other guys was there dressed in street clothes and they did get the job .They hire anybody that can lift 50 or more pounds without stopping for like 4 hours each day most of the time.

    The other time i went into another "maybe" future job another person was there for a interview with street clothes on ??? So, im just wondering when do you break out the nice suit and tie for jobs? For big full time jobs where everything counts or a office space job? And.. what should i wear to this job interview at the grocery store?

    The job: Night Shift Stocking. I doubt many people have this time since school has started at this time of year. I dont start school again till some months away so im free WHENEVER, so a night job will not hurt me.

    Khaki pants and a nice button up shirt should be good for most jobs. If it is a higher end job, such as a management position, then it is suit and tie time. You want to look good without being overdone, but you don't want to come across as dumpy looking.

    Ya, thats exactly what i found in my closet. A pair of khaki's and a white church button up shirt. Im just lacking the casual shoes that i may not need. Its 1 step above the uniform at the grocery store. They wear the companies shirt and whatever blue jeans/shoes they want.

    I guess the khaki's and white button up will be enough with some white very plain shoes.

    Re: What to wear to a grocery store job interview?

    the interviewer will usually be impressed with what you wear.
    Cachi's and a polo shirt or button shirt would be best.

    Good luck.

    Re: What to wear to a grocery store job interview?

    Well, i went in some khaki's, a button up shirt and gym shoes. I swear they didnt even care what i wore there. They only asked me why i wanted to work there... signed some papers and gave me the pee drug test cup and directions to the clinic.



    Easier than trying to get a job @ target or ups.

    Re: What to wear to a grocery store job interview?

    Good Luck,

    The need to dress to impress at interviews is gone IMO because the workforce is so pathetic. If you have a clean criminal record, no DUI's and can pass a drug test you have more qualifications then 80% of the people out there. If you have a car with insurance then damn you are now in the top 10 %

    One of the reasons i went into Sales after i left the Landscape/Construction Industry was i feared opening my business and depending on others to show up 5-6 days a week. I used to interview 20-30 guys a week and i was amazed how stupid and lazy american teenagers are. And people used to ask me why 2/3 of the laborers i hired were Mexican.

    Re: What to wear to a grocery store job interview?

    : Wow, so this lady called today telling me about my drug test. I wasn't the one to answer the phone so while someone was getting me she called another applicant on another line. Anyways, very faintly i heard her say, "sorry, you didn't get the job.. blah blah.. it was very quiet and i was wondering wtf". Anyways, 1 minute later the volume gets louder and she says, "I'm sorry i was doing two things at once and than she tells me about my test and says the next thing to do is show up the orientation to learn about the company and your position :dancing6:" I knew i had the job way before the call, but her talking on another line confused the hell out of me.

    No, i knew i passed after i left the medical center. Just she was using two phones at once and i heard her other conversation about someone not getting the job. Anyways, i have a 4 hour orientation this week than i start Monday on my night shifts. I'm already a night walker through the summer so it shouldn't be hard to fully change back to a night walker. :banana:
