    HI
    I applied for a temporary christmas job at John Lewis and im going to an interview in a few days time. I have worked there before doing the same thing last year. I do really, desperately need a job to pay for my World Challenge trip next year. But the thing is that I'm going to reading festival so if i start working then then I will need time off. Secondly, my family is going away on holiday during the october half term, and i could need to go away in early december.
    What do i do, i know they will ask me at the interview if i have any planned holidays, but if i tell them will they not give me the job. I have tried everywhere to get a job and this is my last option.
    Please help.!!!

    Just tell them, you don't KNOW they won't give you the job.

    You clearly haven't worked in a John Lewis at Christmas, I worked in Edinburgh at Christmas last year and I wouldn't wish the experience upon anyone.
