How early should I show up for a job interview?

I have a job interview tomorrow morning and I'm 18 - its for an office job, a data entry clerk position I was wondering ... how early should I show up? I was first thinking 15 minutes, but then I wondered if something happened (if I couldn't find the suite or something) I should go there 45 minutes early, and then be in the office 20 minutes early? Is 30 minutes too early to show up for an interview?

Ten minutes early will do fine. If you get there any earlier, wait in your car, go over your resume, and practice questions so you will be fresh. I would say 30 minutes is way too early unless you can wait in a lobby where the person interviewing you won't see you.

30 minutes is way too early. 20 minutes would be okay.

well its simple . 30 minutes will be too much. it is just fine with 10 or 15 minutes early. that will be good for you to have your breath and calm down a bit and also to take over your nerves.

Not too early to be waiting in the parking lot, but too early to be in the office. Don't walk in until about 10 minutes before, and wait in your car until then. (I always try to park somewhere that doesn't feel so awkward while I sit and wait...but that's just me.)
