Dress in a suit. I work in a very 'modern' & casual workplace. Shorts, singlets and flip flop shoes are everyday clobber here in the summer months. No one has ever been criticized for turning up to an interview in a suit though.
I do still tease the guy I interviewed about four years ago for turning up with the label still attached to the cuff of his suit jacket. He'd bought it that day and had never worn a suit before.
I'm so glad you have managed to avoid all piss ups at my place to date. I be;lieve your Missus would never see you again.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I agree with you, but it depends on where the OP lives. With the profile name OmahaBull, I assume it is in the Midwest. I believe the dress code is still more relaxed out here in California than many other places.
It also depends on the kind of company. At a startup they will most likely be more relaxed than a huge corporate HQ.
Set your stall out early doors. If you're a developer I recommend a wolf t-shirt, three quarter length shorts, sandals and white sports socks. get a proper gut as well. massive beard for extra brownie points.
Damn right. We all went on a skiing trip at the start of the year. We're both in the group of people that doesn't ski or snowboard so we just went up the mountain to drink beer and take pictures. He was using the altitude to talk to people over the airwaves. Respect.
