I'm exploring my options and have pretty quickly lined up interviews for different neighboring county government auto tech positions and was wondering how to dress. I've been a tech since 2003 but my first job was basically given to me due to my success in high school automotive courses...the sponsoring dealer took me on immediately. I got a job in a small shop for a bit which I seem to remember I wore khakis and a polo to, and my current job which I didn't interview for at all. I went to a test center and upon passing an online exam, I was brought in for a real hands on exam which they specifically told me I should not dress up for as I was getting dirty and I passed the written test so well that I didn't need to impress as long as I could show I know how to actually work on a truck. Fast forward to now, my benefits here aren't as great as I assumed they would be. County jobs seem to offer better benefits so I'm exploring that route and interviewing. I thought I'd be fine in khakis and a polo but the wife thinks a suit is more proper. The job does start significantly lower than I could take as a salary but they told me there is flexibility. Figured it's worth the interview. That makes her figure I should dress up in a suit, though. Opinions welcomed.
