Banana Republic Interview - Page 2

The key here is to wear standout BR pieces from last season (a brightly colored v-neck, tie, whatever crap they had last year that all BR employees will recognize). Anything from this season will be a faux pas.

Not sure this is the best idea, unless that's how all the other sales associates all dress. Put yourself in the bosses shoes whom makes the hiring decision. Since the pay is likely not that great, they probably get a lot of turn over and he's probaby hoping to hire a trouble free employee who'll fit in and be done with it.

Unless the boss is a fanatic who's totally in love with BR products (unlikely), he probably just wants someone who seems reliable and whose appearance and mannerisms won't embarrass the store. Thus, attempting to dress like a BR runway model with the loudest pieces may not be the best idea. It may even make you come off as eccentric (and a little too enthusiastic about BR products). In many people's minds such eccentricity carries with it an unknown risk.

Better for them to discover later how eccentric you may be after you've gotten the job and proven yourself to be a valuable employee.

stalk some other br stores and mimic what they are wearing.
