Wear the best thing you've got. There's a job on the line.

So you guys don't think a suit and tie is over doing it?

The old rule of thumb is to dress one notch above for the interview than what you would wear to that job. If you would wear a polo shirt at work, then wear a button down shirt for the interview.

^^^Ditto. One step above standard attire for the job.

...you're in Texas:
-clean clothes, not sweaty
-clean shoes
-slacks
-buttoned casual shirt or polo shirt
-good attitude

Guys, if some don't know, Pep Boys is an auto parts store, with docks with lifts for working on vehicles/tires/etc

Agree with the above. Suit and tie is inappropriate for your purposes. Let us know how it goes for you and good luck!

It depends on the job you're applying for. If it's for a counter guy I'd wear khakis and a polo. If it's management I'd wear a nice button down and slacks. See what the workers wear. I sell electrical supplies. I've always worn jeans and a polo. I got a job at a different supplier and now I have to dress in slacks.

Just make sure whatever you wear is clean and pressed. Shoes and polished etc. It will be the details that you are neat and well kept that may make a difference. Show up early with a great attitude.

Good luck with the interview.

Don’t answer yes the the question “have you ever stolen anything?” Just say no, not even a pen from my last job. Seems like a standard auto parts store question.

Spend all night rebuilding an engine then go directly to the interview. It will show them you are dedicated to auto repair.

It's a parts store, not the space shuttle!

Wear khakis and a button down shirt, with button collars if you got it. Nothing more.
