There is a guy interviewing 2 offices down from mine right now for a position in our IT department.
He wore jeans and a polo to the interview.
Now, this is a jeans and polo kind of company, but I still think it's bad form to wear that to an interview.
O, and his polo...it's a Texas Tech polo.
Christ, don't they teach those kids anything over there?
You are either going to be a leader or not. to be a leader, you throw your shoulders back, tits to the sky, head up, cock out.
well, for an IT, guy, i'd still give him a chance with the jeans and polo if it's a technical position/developer or skill that is hard to find like mainframe crap. He could be a brainiac without good etiquette / social skills, which is okay for some positions.
...but the iTT logo - i would have already made up my mind before he said a word in the interview.
Jeans and a polo to an IT guy is pretty much a tux to the rest of the world.
Are you kidding? I could hear that arrow a mile away.
Your logic is boggling my mind
lots of IT hate in this thread.
FWIW, I wore a suit to my interview, and all interviews.
Maybe it's just me, though.
lol... back in my consulting days, i had a client that required ties (semi-professional dress). The IT guys all wore short-sleeved Dwight Schute-type dress shirts and all had clip-on ties hanging somewhere in their offices or cubicles in case they ever had to venture to a different floor.
That is awesome, our IBM IT guys wear tshirts and jeans most days, even graphic tees, and we are a slacks office with casual fridays. But they started doing a tie thursday, its comical because its like WTH did you have a job interview before you got here
I have never understood the short-sleeve dress shirts or jorts and leather vests for that matter. Guess I'll give the techie the benefit of the doubt that he checked the dress code prior to the interview.
Kind off topic but when I interviewed with Amazon they said a suit wasn't needed and casual was okay. I was paranoid and wore a suit but my buddy wore jeans and a button up shirt. In the end we both got offers.

I've been in IT for 18 years. I haven't worn suits to a single interview, however, I have worn slacks, dress shirt and tie every time. To me, no mater what you know about the company, it is a sign of respect for them and yourself.
Not off topic at all, I agree you should go above what they say, more likely it helps impress than it is they scoff at you for dressing professionally
Pearl snap or no job bros
Im an IT guy, and any interview regardless of what the position was for even as a young adult was very professional. You can borrow something nicer than jeans folks.
Did you wear your fagggity white uniform?
SEC SEC SEC!!!
I like a short sleeve dress shirt during the summer months because I run at lunch. My company is wool slacks and nice shirts with dress shoes. I get too hot after the run so I go short sleeve. But I am a geophysicist and work in a technical group so we're all nerds.
Always better to be overdressed than underdressed in a professional setting.
It's even better to be undressed, amirite?
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
Lol lets not make fun of white uniforms. We are aggies guy
Think USMCag is insulting the navy dress whites.. Clever
Dislike wearing suits
