When you are interviewing for a warehouse job, you want to make the best possible impression. This means dressing appropriately for the interview so you look professional but not overdone or like you are trying too hard.
While it can be hard to figure out exactly what you should wear to your interview, these tips can help:
- Wear business casual clothing: You should wear nice slacks and a polo shirt or a button down shirt so you come across as having made the effort to dress up for the interview. It’s important to avoid jeans or other overly casual or sloppy clothes that make you look as though you don’t care. Whatever you wear, make sure your clothes are tidy and wrinkle-free.
- Make sure you feel comfortable in your clothing: While you need to dress nicely, you don’t want to be uncomfortable in the outfit you chose as this can make it harder for you to come across as relaxed during the interview. If you aren’t used to wearing a button down shirt and tie, you can go for a nice polo shirt so you still look put together but you don’t feel forced into an outfit that you’re not happy wearing.
- Avoid going overboard with your outfit: While you want to dress professionally, you don’t want to be overdressed either. A suit is usually overkill for warehouse interviews.
- Don’t wear anything that could cause offense: It’s important not to wear clothing with slogans on it that could be offensive. Steer clear of shirts or hats that make a political statement or otherwise come across the wrong way, and don’t wear very strong perfume or cologne that could be unpleasant for the interviewer.
