What do I wear for my job interview?

I am not sure what to wear to my next job interview. I applied for a position of Office Administrative Support Assistant. The job title indicates the word offie, therefore I am visualizing an office environment. Nevertheless, the qulifications for this position indicated a more casual environment such as moving furniture, deliveries, some office maintenance. I applied for this job based on the qualifications and I was called for the interview. What is the appropriate style of clothes to wear. I think a suit will be over dressed, but I am not sure. Please advise.

Better to be overdressed than underdressed. It shows that you are serious about the job.

Go with a black pants suit with heels or a nice cardigan sweater/blouse and knee length skirt and heels. Wear your hair up and a little bit of makeup (not too much). ALWAYS look professional...it's better to overdress than underdress any day!

If you are sure that you are expected to dress more informally for this interview then a pair of well-pressed khaki trousers, a golf shirt or long-sleeved, buttoned down shirt, black or brown laced shoes would be appropriate. To make sure that you are not expected to dress in a more formal way, ie. a suit, you should... More

I interviewed on "casual day". Some of my co-workers looked like they just walked in from working on the corner and once I worked there those same women made fun of the temps for wearing "stripper heels". Always, always, always wear a suit- even if you're interviewing for a position as street sweeper... More
