What to wear to bank customer service rep interview?

In a couple days I'm going in to complete a series of assessments (?) at a bank. I don't know if I should wear a suit w/jacket or just a nice shirt and tie. I don't want to wear a suit if it is complete overkill considering it's a job (bilingual customer service representative) that uses mostly the phone for communication. However I don't want to be unprofessional. Any suggestions?

Wear your Sunday clothes/ Church clothes (if you go to church). Look at what the other tellers wear and dress a bit more formally than that. NO MATTER WHAT, WEAR A TIE THOUGH! Good Luck!

Go for the suit - it's always best to look professional for an interview.

Never hurts to wear a suit, but if the weather was hot I left the jacket at home and went with the button shirt and tie with suit or dress pants. No khakis... More

I think a suit is overdressing a little bit. You will look suitable with black pants (or tan khakis) and a nice plain dress shirt with a solid color tie. Always go with solid colors to an interview. Hope this helped you out! Good Luck at your interview!

You should mirror what the interviewer had on when you last saw him/her. If he was in a suit, wear a suit. If he was dressed down, do that but wear at least a tie with a dress shirt.

Ask them what the dress code is for CSR's, and then dress one step above. It's easier to say "Oops, I guess I over dressed" and get the job, than be under dressed. Blue suit w/ matching tie and white shirt, w/ an undershirt.

Definitely wear a suit, it's better to be overdressed than underdressed and it shows that you are taking this interview seriously which then sends the message that you intend to take your work there seriously too... More

Shirt and tie will do. As you said wearing a suit is an overkill... More
