Would it be appropriate to wear a Blue shirt and tie to a jetBlue interview?

Enough
I interviewed with jetBlue on September 30th. I'd estimate about 20% of the candidates were wearing blue shirts with crazy blue ties. I'd say just as long as you wear a well-tailored suit and look professional, you'll be fine. Enjoy yourself, the folks there were all super nice.
Good Luck.

I agree, leave the crazy tie at home, and wear whatever shirt you would wear to any other interview.

Pilots are such dorks! You're not interviewing for the circus. Be professional.

Quite frankly I feel that going to the inverview with blue balls is in your best interest.

And start humming a little George Strait, "Am I blue?.... Yes, I'm Blue..."

Just don't look stupid or like you're trying too hard. I wore a blue shirt...

I wore a blue tie to the interview and didn't feel out of place at all. Just be sure you've got a well tailored suit to go along w/it.

I wore a navy blue suit, a blue shirt, and a blue & grey tie to my JB interview, and got hired.

Then again, I wore the exact same to my SWA and US Airways interviews, and got hired at both of those companies too.

I guess the point is, as long as you don't look like some kind of clown, and you interview well, you'll get hired.

Tell ya what not to wear: The light tan jacket and Sansa-belt slacks with the Bugs Bunny tie worn by the guy next to me at my interview. Never saw him again. If you see a dofus like this at the interview, stand next to him. You'll look like a CEO.

That's hilarious.
I can't even imagine someone being that unfashionable.

Do applicants really show up in a blue shirt and tie for JB.
Thats funny. Maybe its of a light hue, not the darker one worn by thier pilots.

I think I would just go in a nice conservative 2-button dark navy blue suit with a white shirt and red tie.

Good luck on the interview.

I wore a blue tie, and one of the other applicants wore another of my blue ties (he spilled something on his at breakfast). I didn't get hired, but I'm not sure if the other guy did. He was mid 40's, ex B-1 driver. Maybe he's on here?
