Default What to wear to written test?

I was invited to take the written test for an animal care technician position this Saturday morning. What should I wear to the test?

Dress professionally -- you can't go wrong with a dress shirt and pants, a conservative tie and nice shoes.

Don't forget clean underwear, you know in case you get hit by a bus!

I ended up wearing a plaid shirt with jeans. There was approx 15-20 of us testing and most wore casual. The test itself was not easy but not hard. 100 multiple choice questions.

I realize this is now after the fact, but I was always told to dress appropriately for the job you are applying for. If the people in that position wear a button down shirt and slacks, that is what you would wear.

I find that Khaki's and a polo shirt seem to work best in our field. It looks nice, but your also ready to get dirty if you need to.

About how long does it take for me to get my written test results? I hope I did well. The job bulletin states that the miniumum passing score may be set above or below 70 %

Go for business casual. We like to know you care enough to come professional. You can get dirty later!
