    My advice is this. Wear casual clothes and bring a binder or portfolio that will make you interested in the job. Stay positive, smile and act friendly as much as you can. Don't let the managers feel uncomfortable with you and show them you want to work at C&S and you enjoy it. Depends if you like the job or not. After the interview phase you be checked for backgrounds and drug test.
