    I got invited to a hiring event for an Apple Retail Position. This doesn't seem like a very formal part of the hiring process, so I am a little confused as to what to wear.

    There are going to be a bunch of other people there, so I don't want to be overdressed. Anyone have any tips or suggestions on what to wear to this event?

    I was thinking jeans and a polo, but if someone has been to one I would love to hear their insight.

    I would say no jeans but instead smart trousers that aren't grey.

    Dressing nicely is never going to hurt you. If everyone else is dressed like a slob, then you'll just stick out, and that can't be a bad thing. It shows you're serious and professional. Dressing like Jobs prolly won't give you a better chance, just make them think you're a tool. That's what I think.. ;)

    Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. They want to know the real you. You can email the person dealing with ur application if u feel it will give u peace of mind its wat I did. Went in casual me.

    Depends on what you have to offer.Superstars can wear whatever. Everyone else has to look like they are not on drugs or mental.

    Why would you not wear jeans when the store staff wear jeans.

    I think you should wear jeans, polo shirt with imprinted logo of apple.
