The hiring managers/supervisors don't dress any differently than their normal lame black t-shirt that all employees wear, so there really is no point in putting any effort in to dressing up. Just wear a golf shirt and some jeans.

The typical "tell me a time when...", 1980s style questions - they are really behind the times and their training for managers/supervisors (the ones who will be in the interview) is so out of touch with the 21st century. They should focus on how your previous experience at "x" employer could work into the job opportunity you are being interviewed for . . . not "here's a scenario where 'x' irate customer comes to complain and is not willing to listen, and demands to speak to your manager..." etc.

YMCA employment services will tell you to NEVER submit any references and or police checks to a job prior to interview. So why everyone is saying differently is beyond me and why if their employment services team says one thing, why do they do differently? (YMCAs Cambridge & K-W).
