When Can You Start? Job Question?

I am applying for a job at Tesco online and it has asked me when it would be possible for me to start. The only answer it is possible to give is a date. The problem I have is that, although I will be free all day everyday from 8th July, I am going on holiday for 2 weeks from the 17th August. Should I say that I am free from 8th July or the beginning of september. Would it put them off if I said I could only start 3 moths away and am I entitled to holiday?
Thanks

    You are not entitled to any holiday if you start work there. If you put the 8th July and you get the job, they could refuse to let you have the time off. It would be better to apply when you get back. UK

    Put down on the online application that you can start work on the 8th July. They won’t actually hire you for the job without an in-person interview. If/when you go for the interview, you can tell them about your already-arranged holiday plans in August so they know you will be taking those two weeks off — WITHOUT pay of course, since you won’t have been working long enough to have earned paid holiday time. Its actually a fairly common situation and most employers dont have a problem with it as long as you let them know about it in advance so they can plan around it.

    you’d be entitled to the holiday they have to honour it put down the 8th of july and make sure you put down the holiday you have booked, you can also remind them in the interview, they have to honour your holiday and will take you on, but won’t wait 3 months to give you the job if you say you can’t start until 17th august they’ll find someone else i don’t know if they’ll pay you when you’re on holiday
