I have an interview with Amazon and they say to "dress comfortably" and that they are a "casual work environment." Should I just wear business casual? I assume a suit would be overdoing it based on that description

Or shirtless, whatever is more comfortable.

Dress shirt/khakis. Better to be too dressed up than not enough.

Amazon’s definition of comfortable and mine are probably very different😂 I’m sure they mean like jeans and a polo. My comfortable is shorts and a t-shirt or sweats and a hoodie depending on the weather😂 Also, Idk why but I prefer wearing slacks over jeans.

I'm 100% with you on the slacks > jeans. They're usually not as tight and they're a more comfortable fabric. Only time I ever wore jeans to the office was when I was going somewhere afterwards where it would be weird to be wearing slacks.

If you’re a male, do slacks with a button down, if the weather is chilly, add a sport coat. If you’re female, wear a suit skirt with blouse/button down or a nice sheath dress, can add a blazer if chilly
