Vacation time

I just left my job and joined a new company. I had two days left a vacation and I'm wondering if I am entitled to it? Of course my former boss says no but I think I am. I started with him of April of 2012 and I did not miss a day or take any time off so I work the year and every year after till the day I left and when I qualified I took vacation. Now he's saying that he does not owe me for those days as I left working only 6 months in 2017. Who can I go to check this way and what legal actions can I take if any

I don't know what I am doing wrong

I been to almost 10 interviews and no one called me back of getting the job. I used to live in Texas, but now live in New Mexico for Collage, so all my work history was in Texas. For interviews I dress up professional and arrival 5 mins early so they know I am present and gives them time to get the paper work ready to take notes during the interview. I also bring a extra copy of my resume so they can review and ask me questions on what I did in those previous jobs. The first question that they ask is for me to tell them a little about myself in which I tell them I like to play video games as one of my hobby's, I am enthusiastic, and I work well with others. When they then ask me about what I did in my previous jobs, I respond with my responsibilities without it sounding like I am better then anyone else. They did ask me questions on what I would do when situations were chaotic, I would tell them based on experience on the procedures I would take to fix it step by step. Then they ask me the final question which is what I would see myself in 5 years and I tell them proudly that I would be working as a Graphic Design Artist making drawings, and designing art works. After they asked all those questions, they ask me if I have an questions for them. So of course I had some questions, and the first one was, "Based off the information I provided well there be higher chance of myself getting the job?" and the 2nd one is "Because there might be other candidates awaiting for an interview when can I hope to get contact with you about the job position?" After the interview ends I thank them for the interview and shake their hand and head out.

I don't know if I messing up somewhere, and if I am can any of you from the Community share some suggestions on how I can make my interviews better so I have better possibilities of getting the job?

Needed opinions.

On Tuesday I went in for what I thought was an interview with Farmers Insurance. After getting to the interview, Farmers Insurance informed me that they were trying to recruit me for a Farmers Insurance small business owners position. After noting down as much information as I could I went home to think it over and to discuss it with my husband. I did some research being that I look through the website that farmers provided, and also attempted to contact some of those listed in the same position so that I would get their opinions. I also called a few friends of mine, some of which used to work for Farmers Insurance. Now the friends of mine who have had previous experience with Farmers told me not to take this offer. The few who have no experience with Farmers were overly excited about the opportunity and are more than willing to back me regardless of my decision. I just want to make sure that I'm looking at this from all angles, some that I might see and some that I might not. This is something that is going to affect my entire family and the life that I could potentially provide for them. If there are any one out there who have previous experience with Farmers Insurance or (more specifically) the opportunity that has been given to me please leave me some comments letting me know about your experience so that I may be able to have more clarity when coming to the conclusion that would best fit my family.

ADVICE NEEDED

Hey, I am 16 and I have a job interview at Sears later today. Can someone give me tips on important details to say? I know I have to be myself but I want to stand out and actually get this job. What's the best thing to let the company know about me? What are they mainly looking for? All help is appreciated!!
