    Hi,

    I am filling out a application form for the Royal Bank of Scotland and one question asks:
    What do you think will be the three worst things for you about working for the The Royal Bank of Scotland?

    I have put:
    1. The lack of full time hours currently available, if possible I would prefer to work on a full time basis.
    2. The uniform.
    3. The distance of some branches from my home town, mean increased travelling time.

    I found this question really hard to answer; do you think these answers are ok? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    don't make them negitive, make them like your first one, it positive in a way. but the on about the uniform is a bit negitive, like you're moaning or something.

    I disagree, be as honest as you can without saying 'the pay is *****' they want to employ an interesting person not someone who gives obviously untrue answers in a job application (at the moment 1 + 3 look good)

    For number two, how about:

    "I dislike the glass screen that separates staff and customers at the counters, as I like to interact with customers, but I understand that it is a necessary security measure"?
