    I never have a problem with interviewees wearing scrubs. You want to present yourself at your best, and why not show yourself at your best work appearance? I really don't care what you wear outside the hospital anyway as long as your badge isn't on it.

    I agree. The way I see it, you will probably be working in scrubs if you got the job there...but you don't have the job there yet

    I have overheard managers in two different places say that they would hesitate to hire someone who showed up to an interview in scrubs. IMO it is disrespectful to the person interviewing you, because it tells them that you can't be bothered to dress up. This might not be true, but most managers frankly are not terribly sympathetic to your other obligations. The way they see it, if you truly want the job you will find a way to dress appropriately. I do not mean to come off as harsh, but this is the way I see it.

    Good luck with your interviews

    I agree that regular clothing is more appropriate for an interview. You can change into scrubs afterwards in a bathroom.

    I would dress for the interview and change into scrubs in the bathroom at work.
