    Hi everyone,I'm 16 years old and was looking for a job and I applied to one in a hardware store nearby which is pretty big. I sent my application off last week and luckily got called back for an interview that's taking place in 3 days! I was reviewing my form and I realised I made a mistake, instead of saying that I will be available to work 7-8 hours a week I said I am available to work 7-15 hours a week! What should I do? I don't want to work up to 15 hours week as I am only looking for a weekend job. Have they only called me in for an interview because I said I could do long hours? Should I mention that I've made a mistake, at the interview or should I email the manager now? I really want the job but I'm getting pretty worried!Thanks in advance

    It looks bad making mistakes on application forms as it shows you don't have a eye for detail which is what every manager looks for,

    Just tell your boss that since you wrote that your hours will have to be reduced because you are busy, im sure the manager will understand
