Do you take work home with you?

How to Use

Interviewer: Do you take work home with you?

Kevin: I don't take work home with me unless it is an emergency. If I have a lot of things to do, then I just stay at the office late and try to get the work done. However, I do some planning work while I am at home.

Interviewer: What kind of planning work?

Kevin: For example, if I get a new big project from my boss on Friday afternoon, then I will spend some time at home during the weekend planning and thinking about it. I like to brainstorm ideas and write out some tentative plans. This way on Monday, I can get to work and start bouncing ideas off of other people.

Interviewer: That sounds like a great way to get ahead.

Kevin: It is, and I really enjoy the planning stages of projects. So, I don't mind doing this kind of work at my home.
