    have an interview on july 25th for a restaurant in Las Vegas. I have managed for 20 years as a manager. I am not worried about the interview but was hoping for some help with my attire for the interview. With it being so hot out I am looking for advice on what to wear in such warm conditions. Any advice would greatly help. After the interview I will be following the GM as to view a shift. Please reply if you can help

    I can't speak for Vegas but as a professional who works around executives all day I think a coat and tie is a must for ANY professional job interview. I'd question the professional maturity of anyone who'd show up at an interview without a tie at the very very least.

    Remember, it's nearly impossible to overdress for a job interview.

    I agree with the coat and tie - it's not too much of a hinderance since presumably you'll be able to drive to the location in an air conditioned car, and I doubt the interview will be outside. If it's a restaurant inside a casino or a similar larger facility, you can just come in with more casual clothes and change to your more formal attire on site in a bathroom or something if you want.

    Agree with the suit and tie. Arrive early, stay cool in the cool in the car if you have to, or sit in an air conditioned area of the casino/restaurant prior to your interview to avoid running to the interview and sweating afterwards.

    You should always dress similar to one level above the position you are applying for. So do some research or you may already know what your eventual boss would wear. If you do wear a suit be prepared to shed the jacket during the shift if needed. Don't want to be sweating on the food!!
