Evening all. smile

Further to my recent interview, I've been invited to an induction day tomorrow. Eeeek.

I asked, and there is no dress code but I don't particularly want to make a tit of myself. Generally the staff wear black - so I was thinking maybe I'd wear that. But I don't know confused

Any suggestions lovely people? Thank you thanks

That's great news! Well done so far.

You have given zero information to help in the advice-stakes though grin. What sort of black things were the other staff wearing? What sort of black thing were you thinking of?

Oh sorry blush

Generally the staff I've seen wear black skirts/trousers with a black top. And then their name badge.

I was thinking of this with black tights. I want to wear these but was talked out of them for my interview.

They should be okay. What footwear did the staff have?

MacAndCheese Mon 05-Nov-12 17:09:19

I don't know. Flats generally I'd guess. I should done a reccie t

Eh? I should have done some reconissance today shouldn't I?

That is a v nice dress. How will you accessorise

Also what type of company/industry is it?

MacAndCheese Mon 05-Nov-12 17:36:26

It's retail. I was thinking small earrings, and maybe a bracelet/bangle?

tak1ngchances Mon 05-Nov-12 17:45:13

Retail fashion or other?

MacAndCheese Mon 05-Nov-12 17:50:38

I suppose it would include fashion - Department store?

what job is it?

MaureenLove Mon 05-Nov-12 17:53:14

retail - in a shop or retail a manager?

MacAndCheese Mon 05-Nov-12 18:00:40

I'm drip feeding. Apologies.

Retail job as a Christmas Temp in a Department store. Tomorrow is my induction day - I can wear what I want but I'd rather stay within the range of what everyone else is wearing IYSWIM?

Ok then I think discreet jewellery would be nice. Make sure your hair & nails are nice as you'll be in a customer facing role. The dress is perfect. I would go conservative on the shoe front.
Good luck!!
