I always go to my job interviews dressed as professional as possible.  That means a suit, preferably black or blue, crisp white shirt, tie (nothing crazy, the simpler the better) and shined shoes.  Doesn't matter if the environment ends up being casual, you want to look like you care and are taking the interview seriously.  When I use to interview people, I've turned away guys for simply not wearing a tie.  They may have had in a nice suit, clean shaven, etc, but no tie, no interview.

Obviously make sure that you've shaved your head that morning so that it's clean.  If you have a beard, make sure it's trimmed and cleaned up.  If it's stubbly, shave it off and go to the interview clean shaven.  I've had to do that...I went for a job interview and had to have my bead and just kept the goatee because the area around the cheeks had not grown out yet.  I grew out the beard once I got the job.

You want to make the best first impression on your job interview and that means looking as professional as you can.

I agree, always overdress for the position. Confidence is also a must. Good luck.

Like the others have said, dress well and look sharp.  I will add answer questions with confidence, and add examples that include what you did and the results.

Ditto:  a clean PRESSED shirt and tie is a must for any job interview.  It tells the Boss that you respect him and that you want the job enough to care about little details like a pressed shirt.  The interviewer WILL notice!

A firm handshake makes an impression and good eye contact is important, too. Knock 'em dead and let us know what happens!

I agree with the gentlemen before me. A conservative business suit or at least a dress shirt and tie are the best attire for just about any interview. It tells the interviewer that you are serious about the job.

Let us know how it goes.

Some extra preparation time doesn't hurt.  Give you some time to research the company, or casino in this case, so that you know a little something about them.  Never hurts to be overprepared and ready.

I agree with the gents here especially considering the sort of work you are applying for.  You want to show up as crisp, responsible and professional looking as possible.  Have a two piece suit?  Wouldn't hurt either.

I find I have shown up over dressed for a few interviews I have had when looking for work and while a joke or two may have been made at my expense at the time (more likely after getting the job) it certainly hasn't hurt.  There are different types of jobs that certainly don't reauire it though, when I am applying for oil and labour based jobs in Alberta I don't think I'll don the 3 piece and bow tie for example hahaha

Good luck dude!!
