Interview for Range Attendant. Attire Question!

8 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone. Just joined and I need help before tomorrow at 12:30. I've got an interview with a course for the position of Range Attendant. I need your opinions on what to wear. I was thinking of Khaki pants and a Polo shirt. Some I talk to say that's great, others suggest a dress shirt and tie I'm currently at college and do not have a dress shirt and tie in my wardrobe. I guess my question is, is it worth showing up for? I do not want to look like a fool. Any help is appreciated. Especially Course employees. Thanks! PS I do not golf. Or frequent courses very much. If you could not tell. Thanks.

What kind of course is it? If it is a private or upscale public course, a shirt and tie would not be out of place. I would think a polo shirt and khakis would be fine in most cases.

My Rule for how to dress in interviews:  If you aren't sure what to wear always over dress.  So in this cause, I would wear shirt/tie with some slacks.

Assuming you are in the U.S., I agree with SloverUT's advise.  But as caniac6 alluded to, if it is a "typical" muni-course, a clean polo shirt and a khaki pants would not be out of line.

Wife beater, cut off jean shorts & worboots with no socks. Good to go.

The tan pants and polo is fine. I suppose everyone is different but in my experience I tend to think those that come to my interviews overdressed appear out of touch or in transition. If I am trying to hire a mechanic and someone shows up dressed like they are interviewing for a position in a law office the first thing I think is they are out of work and looking for something to hold them over until they find something better. Dress for the job not for the runway, it's not a fashion show.

Definitely different.  When I interview individuals I never hold it against them for being over dressed, however, I don't like it if they are underdressed.  I am not saying khaki/poli is wrong..  but again I always find it better to overdress.  Either way, it is not like a pair of khaki's with a button up shirt/tie is a huge upgrade from a polo.  It isn't as if I am suggesting he wear a 3 piece suit :).

Wearing a polo and khakis should be just fine.  Just make sure they are freshly pressed, and you don't look like you rolled out of bed, or picked them up out of a pile of dirty clothes off of your closet floor.
