Cron expression help

Hello team,
is the first time with the cron expression, i need to start robot from 8am to 18pm every five minute from monday to friday; is correct to put this expression?

0 0/5 8,18 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *

The second question is: if the first run, for example at 8am, is not finished at 8:05, the second run goes in pending?
And if many processes goes in pending, restart automatically after the first is finished or turn to failed?

Thanks in advance

Expression you wrote is correct i.e 0/5 8,18 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI *

Second jobs will go in pending mode if one is in progress.

It should be like this:

                                               0 0/5 8-18 ? * MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI * 

if its not completed with in that time then one process will be in the pending state and all other processes will be faulted as all are same processes.
