Re: nursery interview apparel

I tried a nursery job last spring...the job was one of those temporary
ones for spring. I couldn't believe how ridiculously overworked I was
for $6 an hour...never sat down the whole time I was at work, no breaks,
no meal times, constant movement, lifting, carrying, standing. But I got
to learn how to work a cash register which was fun! The people I worked
with were great and very knowledgeable. I loved working with the
customers. But in the end, I don't think I'd do it again...my time is
worth a whole lot more than $6 an hour! But I sure learned to appreciate
the term "laborer" a whole lot more! Dress was very casual, even for the
interview...probably a nice pair of casual slacks with a sweater would
be fine for the interview, Kitty...neat and presentable but not overly
