    God you guys are over-complicating this.

    First of all, its a freaking Panera Bread. Just wear some slacks and a dress shirt with some decent dress shoes. If you get called back for a formal interview wear a suit.

    ....

    Just research the company and express why you want to work there.

    Sheesh.

    +1 on this. You need to loosen up a bit. Don't get rowdy but relax and show your personality a bit. Sometimes it's not just about your knowledge or special skills. They also look for how your soft-skills fits in the team.

    More security exams and then the world.

    It's not for 2 more days (the 4th). Picked up a jacket for $2.50 at consignment shop today. Dunno if it's some gawd-awful 70's style or anything. Going to do a bit more clothes shopping tomorrow and see if I can get something that matches up.

    Man I just don't know fashion haha.

    I managed to scramble at the last-minute and pick up some black slacks and a black tie to go with the charcoal jacket I picked up for $2.50. Since I'd picked up a dress shirt earlier in the week (my current one was too large; was bought last-minute and was only size available), I basically ended up picking up a whole new outfit. I think it looked pretty nice though.

    I think it went very well, although I'd thought that repeatedly at my last employer time and again, and never got any promotions so I'm may not a good judge on that.

    He said to give him a week or so and he might have me come in to talk with a couple more people (I'm thinking second interview).

    It sounds like a pretty nice position; some sort of mix between NOC tier 1 and field tech. I'm trying not to get excited about it but it's not easy hehe.

    Thanks again to everyone who posted their advice!
