I will arrive on STX Wednesday and cant hardly believe its here.
One last question I cant quite remember.
I will be interviewing for serving and bartending positions and I was curious what type of clothing is most appropriate. I know here in the states I am used to wearing slacks and a nice shirt but is that correct for the islands or is it more casual.
Thank you all for the help making this move much easier.
If anyone would be interested in dinner or a day at the beach let me know
Kyle, if you are a man, you will most likely get a job in a short sleeved shirt and shorts at any of the boardwalk restaraunts. To try to get in to Divi, you need to go to the Department of Labor in Sunny Isle shopping center. If you are looking for a job at Buccaneer, you will drive up to the security gate and ask for an application to take with you. When you come back with it filled out tell security you are dropping off application. Dress with slacks and short sleeve shirt. Good luck.
Same as a guy with the boardwalk restaraunts. You can wear shorts when you work there so just come up with a nice top and shorts. Going into the Department of Labor, people wear sundresses to jeans. They don't notice what you are wearing there....Buccaneer, dress with a sundress or skorts.
As an employer, I'd like to see a potential employee make an extra effort while putting in an application or during an interview. Here in the VI that usually means a dress, skirt or slacks and a nice shirt/blouse for women and a pair of khakis and a polo or other sport shirt for men.
To me, it does not mean halter tops, sundresses, short, short skirts, bagging, falling-off-the-hips shorts or tank tops.
One should also not bring friends, boyfriends, or your mother to an interview -- it make the wrong impression.
Chance are the employer is older and more conservative than the prospective employee and he/she will appreciate the effort.
