good luck with it .
My company was recently bought by an investment firm.
To be "legal", everyone who wasn't transferred over automatically to
the new company has to apply for their own job. My interview is tomorrow.
Wondering how to make the best of this situation...
I get home, and my sweety says my boss called to tell me to "Wear something appropriate."
Now, we'd had a meeting about the upcoming application/interview process, two
weeks ago, at which time I specifically asked if I'd have to buy a suit. She sort of laughed and
said no, it wasn't going to be formal.
We don't have to dress corporate, which is good, because I am not a dress up person.
I do not have an extensive wardrobe to draw upon.
I can't run out, at 5:30 PM, expecting to instantaneously find a suit.
Now I'm wondering how much of a black mark am I going to get because my boss
felt it OK to communicate this information less than 24 hrs before I have to go before the interview board.
After I'd left for the day at that.
How do I explain my seeming lack of interview etiquette?

Wear a blue blazer, gray slacks, solid color tie, dark socks, and well-shined shoes.
You'll do just fine
Depends on the job
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” — William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783
I remember also having to apply for my own job all over again! At my previous job of 33+ years! Did I get my old job back? Yes!
I didn't have to wear nothing special! Good luck with getting your old job back!

Sport coat, tie, white shirt, slacks, leather shoes, and no attitude.
You should have a big advantage since you already know the job.
Other than that, be respectful and polite.
If you're hired--great! If not, it's an opportunity to find a better job. This is the best the economy has ever been!

The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government.
Usually they will hire you back unless they think you are a deadbeat or you have a high salary.
If you are older with a large salary then you are vulnerable. The good news is that with the economy in good shape many companies are having trouble finding qualified personnel.
A lot of places they can't even find applicants that can pass a drug test.
Dress nice and remember your past work is your resume. These people know you, you'll do fine.
Remember, only your enemy wants you disarmed.
Dress the best as you can, and above all ditch the doubt, put on the "I got this!" face, walk in HAPPY like you own the place, and nail it.
Easy! You can do it.
