1. You should wear, at the very least, some nice jeans and a nice button up. Maybe wear some of your nicer sneakers to show that you like shoes and will alwaysbe knowledgeable about them (to cut their training costs.)

2. Them giving a test depends on your age. 18+? It's more likely than not.

3. Pay is usually negotiable in all jobs, unless it's stated before hand. If they ask "what would you like your starting wage to be," don'tgo too far above minimum wage. You're applying for a summer job, so they'll be looking to get the best possible person for the least amount of money.

I don't think you need to dress up for any job under 10/hour
.

Not sure what you definition of business look is? I'm assuming shirt and tie, or suit. So, I'd just go with some khakis/black slacks, casual shoes anda polo or dress shirt. I've seen people get the job in jeans though. It really depends on your location and if you already know the hiring managers. (youcould say that for any job)

I think making sure that your entire appearance is neat and organized is enough. Some darkwash jeans, a nice polo, and your best shoes should do. As for thepee test, I would go in with the assumption they'll be giving you one, that way if they do you were expecting it and if they don't oh well.

I've heard that wearing nice sneakers can help your chances of getting the job for a shoe store interview.

not true...Jordans sell themselves...they don't care that you're a sneakerhead
if you can't sell Shox and PhatFarms it doesn't matter...i saw my oldmanager send dudes home for wearing jeans to the interview...if anything 'sneakerheads' are a hassle cuz all they really want is a discount...

ITS A TRAP
dont do it unless u really dont care about being told that "your going to get fired" for not selling 10% of accessories with what ever pair of shoesyou sell . i used to be a store manager at finishline they lured me away from nike. im no longer there cause i hated that simple fact that i had to beassertive about FORCING employees to sell scuff and stain cleaner. but if your doing it for a summer job its koo
