Bit of a delayed reply to your question (!) but it was just that Q16 had got mixed up with the question before. I've fixed the formatting on it now so it's easier to read.
Great stuff. Thanks.
thank u very much guys this has real helped me a lot in aswering some if not most of the interview questions that have faced
This is a lot of information but yes your are 50times helpful :smile: if only the job centre/ careers advice was as nice as you.
question should you tell them you are dyslexic or have a disability?

would that show a negative quality

or would they respect your hard work to achieve so much while having a disability?

also is there a thing as having too many qualifications and or training?
Most online applications ask if you have, or think you may have, a disability. So, by the time you've gotten to the interview, chances are they already know. If not though, you can perhaps mention it in your achievements. Say something like "I'm really proud of how well I've done in school and in previous jobs, despite having dyslexia." or something along those lines. They'll see that you don't let anything get the better of you and it shows that you can work hard despite handicaps.
Do you have any experience that you think would be an advantage in the position that you are applying for?

I have applied for a job and its 13.75 hours but I have asked if I can bring it down to 13 hours cause I'm on benefits and if I work all the 13.75 hours ill loose all my money! Do you think it should be OK?
The one question I wanted an answer to was "19. Give us an example of a situation where you didn't meet your goals or objectives." but the answer isn't there....

As an example, the answer that may sound in the interview of the sales manager:
This was so helpful! Thank you!
