Warehouse employer wouldn’t even interview me due to what I was wearing?
Why would my choice of attire matter so much for this type of position? I applied for a job in my area where I would be assembling gym equipment in some warehouse. Even though I’m only 19, i have had several years of experience putting together fitness equipment as my father owns his own business and does pretty much the same thing. Even the lady that set up the interview over the phone told me that my resume was good and that I qualify very well for the job. She even mentioned that she rarely ever finds people with such qualifications and she was very eager to set up the interview as soon as possible. They wouldn’t even need to train me if they hired me. I tried to dress casual as I believed I would look ridiculous if I dressed up like I was going to church for a warehouse job. But as soon as I walked in the manager criticized me for wearing a plain white t-shirt, and sneakers; something that I would typically wear for this job. He then told me he wasn’t interested anymore and refused to even jnterview me. Why would he rather hire some phaggot that doesn’t even know what he’s doing just because he shows up to a blue collar job in a suit and tie over someone like me who has years of experience and would do a good job? Do you believe what he did was right or was he just being overbearing? This was in fact my first interview so I might just be ignorant.
- Dressing as you did for an interview would indicate to me that you didn't care about having any job. A nice pair of slacks and a buttoned shirt would have been much more appropriate for an interview. The way a person looks and dresses tells another person about their potential attitude about other people or an available job.10
- your 19, you don't have "several years experience". if your dad "owns a company" doing "pretty much the same thing", then you should be working for your dad. or maybe your dad thought you were just some "phaggot"01
- They look for someone that is showing an interest in the job. You had a t-shirt. wow really for a job interview. Even if you wear a shirt it should be at least a polo shirt with a collar. And not white. One with a pocket. Shows you are relaxed but not a bum.
Tennis Shoes is fine if they are black in color. And not all street dirty.
So dress to impress but not so you look like you want to be salesman. Dress like you want the interviewers job. And stop saying the stuff you are saying.10
- If you don't look good in what you wear, it's your fault, not theirs00
- In my opinion ,you are wrong.This is your first interview to see manger,you should wear a suit.00
- Always dress for the job you want not the job you have.00
- If you can't make an effort for something as important as this,what do you really expect out of life01
- Always dress better than the job requires. An interview is in an office, so you need office attire, not an example of how to dress on the job.00
- If someone can’t take the time to dress properly for a professional situation, then why would I want to waste company time and resources on someone who is content with providing the bare minimum in return? An employer looks for a good ROI, not someone who is going to be a liability.
Congrats on your entitlement providing your unemployment!00
