I pretty much have the job already but this is the first interview. I am applying to be a pet trainer. Normally, I go on office job interviews and wear clacks and a button shirt or a business suit. Should I go that far out for this type of job or would a nice pair of jeans a button down shirt (or dressy shirt) do? My interview in a bout 2 hours and I am starting to worry about it because I have never had a retail job interview before (other than B&N who also wants to hire me and i just wore a t-shirt and wide legged pants and my tennis shoes) I was thinking about going to Old Navy and picking up a nice new top to wear with jeans or my wide leg pants. Should I or should I not wear heels?

I would suggest slacks and a polo type button down. They will issue a uniform anyway so you should at least show them that you are not afraid to dress nice.I probably woudn't go with heels. You will be training dogs and they don't expect you to come in your sunday best.

"Sunday best" lol I don't really own a lot of dress clothes. Even my slacks are black dress pants i have had since 2005. My last job we wore jeans, tshirts and tennis shoes every day to work. I am going to have to go rummage through my closet. Thanks
