A data entry job says they have a business professional dress code. Does that mean someone would have to wear a suit and tie everyday?

I'm going to ask on Monday. Does that sound outrageous if they expect a suit and tie everyday?

    It could, you need to ask what the dress code is. It mite mean dressed neatly and clean or suite and tie.

    never hurts to overdress. wear a suit and tie for the first couple days, then just keep an eye on what others at your level are wearing, then adjust when you feel more comfortable, or enough to ask your supervisor.

    professional dress does mean suit and tie. business casual is slacks, sometimes jeans and a nice shirt. and casual is a little less. jeans and shirt, sneakers, polo, etc.

    You can ask but yes, it probably means a suit and tie everyday. 20 years ago this was the norm in thousands of businesses and across whole industries, its not a big deal. You get used to it fast and might find you actually look better in a suit and tie (which is the point of having the dress code)

    It really depends on what is acceptable where you are. In the Financial District in London, a suit is assumed and required in most cases. That would be considered business appropriate. In Silicon Valley, suits are rare. Business professional would be slacks and a polo. (although for an engineer as long as your t-shirt's holes aren't big enough to see your belly button it's fine.)

    Unlikely. It probably just means - don't turn up in ripped jeans and sandals.

    Yup some places like law firms and or financial institutions have business professional dress codes for all their employees no matter if they are just doing data entry.
