Please help me prepare for a job interview for a job which I have my heart set on

I have an interview coming up (on Thursday) for a job which I've had my heart set on since having an interview there about a year ago. I didn't get the job then, due to an office restructure (internal hire?).
I have since applied to the job twice, through an agency, but did not get an interview.
Just last week, I applied directly to the company, and got an email later that day asking me to come in for an interview.
The job relates to advertising, and mostly involves data entry and translating, and requires a good knowledge of Adobe PDF. It pays just slightly more than minimum wage.
Basically what I am asking is
#Do I mention the previous interview? Do I approach this differently seeing as I have already had an interview there?
# Is it weird that they want to interview me again after having already been rejected a few times, and is it weird that this is the fourth time they've advertised this position in a year?
#What do employers look for in someone doing data entry work?
#Do you have any interview tips, given the nature of the job and what it involves?
