Opinions needed please!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have an interview tomorow at a salon and spa. I have never seen the place or met the gentleman that is going to be interviewing me. I will be wearing scrubs because I want to present myself in the professional way that I go to work every day, and I may have to do a massage. These are my 3 favorite sets and I can't decide which to wear. I know it is hard to tell without seeing them but I would appreciate some opinions. Thanks!

Personally I would go with the solid as I think it presents a more serious professional image. Not being familiar with your professional world tho, THIS may mean nothing but I would wear good street clothes to the interview and take the scrubs to change into if youi need to do a demo massage. IMO. Good luck with youe interview and let us know HOW IT TURNS OUT.

Solid. Without knowing the gentleman that's interviewing you, and the "aura" of the establishment in question, I think it's best to be as conservative as possible.

I agree with Howard. Wear regular business interview clothes & bring your solid outfit to change into. Good Luck

I tell all my students no matter where thier interviews are to look as professional as possible. I would bring the scrubs along to change into if necessary but you will look more professional in interview clothing than in work clothing.

Here's another vote for street clothes and take the purple scrubs. (I don't like green).

I refrained from posting earlier because I though perhaps I would be talking about something I know nothing about, but I, too, am with Howard. If you are interviewing, professional dress - a suit or other business clothing - is in order. I told me daughter to put on a skirt to go to apply at McDonald's. I have always been told to put your absolute best foot forward for an interview. Take the scrubs along if you really think you may have to demo a massage.

I teach interviewing skills and things at my job. When we talk with different HR people and just hiring managers in general they always say that you should be dressed professional, even if the work atmosphere will be different. Just thought I should add that.

I'd wear something nice, not scrubs. Scrubs look good when you are working but not in an interview. He might gett he wrong impression of you. Wear a suit or nice pants and nice top. NOT SCRUBS!!!

I voted, then read the other answers.
I think a solid color presents a very professional look, for the first time you meet this guy.
GOOD LUCK, and hope it works out really well for you!

I voted solid green too. I don't actually know what scrubs are though?!

Sam, scrubs are the lightweight cotton garments most healthcare workers wear. (nurses, dental assistants, etc.) I had never noticed that my massage therapist wore them, but it stands to reason.

I agree that you should dress professionally, but carry the maroon scrub set with you. Good luck on your interview!!!

I wore the green set, as it is customary here for a MT to show up for an interview dressed and ready to do a massage. Turns out I could have shown up in ripped jeans and a ratty t-shirt and still gotten the job. They guy I interviewed with is one of my s/o's clients, and I have done several piercings on his wife, who it turns out is one of the realtors I have been talking to about my pending move. My full name is on my business card, and he did not realize it was me he would be interviewing. Small world, huh?
It is only one day a week right now since he is remodeling, but since I am moving, that is a good thing. I think this will be a great opportunity. He is a serious business man and will do what it takes to promote his business in a positive manner. He currently owns 3 sports bars, a chain of tanning salons, and several other sucessful businesses. He bought the spa to cater to the rich people that have summer homes nearby at the beach. Most importantly, he is a decent guy according to several mutual friends, and treats his employees very well. More that I can say for my current employer. I hope she does not fire me for taking on a second job.
