Do Not Volunteer

As you may have read, in addition to the office gig. I also have a PTG. I work in a call center where I take calls from people looking for jobs. I signed all kinds of legal smeagle confidential thingys so that's it for deets. I just wanted to pass on the following; when being interviewed for a job, particularly over the phone, do not over respond. Do not volunteer information.

Example 1: Are you at least 18 years of age? Oh, YES. I am 76. responding to ad for warehouse job
Example 2: Have you ever been convicted of a felony? Um, no? But I do have several misdemeanors on my record. Will that hurt my chances?

Next question please.
