Well,sarah is really bold and tough negotiator.In my country if you ask such questions before joining the job,you won't beconsidered for the job,.
 

I believe the situation is the same in my country.  During the interview the interviewer would normally ask for your expected pay and if the job is offered to you, normally your salary expectation will be met.  In other situations, candidates would be asked to indicate their salary expectation on their resumes. If the company has a budget that is lower than the salary the candidate expects, then two possibilities can happen.
1) the recruiter may call the candidate up and check with him whether he would still consider attending an interview if the salary offered is lower OR
2) the candidate may not even be considered as his salary expectation is over the company's budget.
Negotiating start date though, is not uncommon. 
 
 

Not only is Sarah a tough negotiator, I think she is very bold to ask for the bonuses and more holidays before she even started work and proved herself.  I guess this happens in role playing situation only right?
