Hey guys, so I have an interview for GAME tomorrow, my first ever. And whilst I'm feeling confident enough, I'm still unsure about a couple of things.

What should I wear? Was thinking shirt and tie might be a bit formal so I was leaning towards school uniform which would make sense since it's not long after school and that's pretty tidy looking.

Also can any other interviewees/GAME employees/managers tell me what questions I'm like to get?

Bear in mind I'm only 16.

Thanks for your help guys

My brother worked in game for while. Honestly, I'd go for smart/casual. Suit is way too formal, school uniform looks a bit like you can't be bothered to get changed and don't consider the interview important...

Maybe school trousers/shirt but wear a jumper on top? So long as it's plainish or striped or something.

It's quite common for you to be asked to do a 5 minutes sales pitch of one of the 3 consoles, to a person they'll define at the interview.

IE: Sell a console to a 60 year old woman.

Obviously, you go for Wii and sell it to hell.

Wear what you'd wear for any interview. Trousers, shirt, and tie. What makes you think it would be any different just because it sells games?

I'd wear school uniform. Since different schools finish at different times and stuff it'd be easy to say you came there straight from school. Just bring your school bag. I've had 2 jobs and to both interviews I just wore uniform.

Yeah its better to end up more formal than required rather too informal. It shows you care.

When I went for an interview at my local GAME, the manager just asked me a few questions regarding what was on my CV. He didn't ask my to do a sales pitch though and I didn't get the job.

My friend went for same job, and the manager asked him what he could contribute to the team and he said 'I'm tall, so I can reach the top shelf'. He didn't get the job either.

as someone said before me it's much better to appear too smart rather than too casual. and also i agree that just showing up in school uniform makes you look like you can't really be arsed.

I've never had an interview of any kind so I don't have clothes I'd "wear for any interview".

I just thought because GAME employees don't wear a shirt & tie and that it's generally a pretty chilled out place, then going formal might be a bit too much.

Also bear in mind I'm 16, I'll be working mostly with stock, out of sight.

I'll have a think about it, though I don't have a shirt or tie other than school ones.

EDIT: I'm not an idiot, if this was a full-time job or something then I'd wear shirt and tie (even buy them for the interview)

i see where your coming from, but still, whatever the job, wear tie, shirt, and trouser.

if you have to go in school uniform, tuck your shirt in, make sure your shoes are shiny, buy a tie, you shouldnt need a blazer. brush your hair, and make sure your clean shaven

Sounds like a plan, cheers dude.

School uniform for me is white shirt and black trousers with the school's tie, but I guess I could get a cheap one somewhere

Goes without saying that my shirt will be tucked in & shoes shined.

& unfortunately I lack the ability to grow much facial hair so that's not an issue

Thanks for the advice.

I would..

- Go as smart as you possibly can. The smarter, the better.

- Be as polite as possible.

Or..

I would scream "PC GAMERS ARE TEH BESTEST!!11111" whilst throwing copies of PC Zone from the late 90s through the windows and giving everyone free demo discs.
