Yes Sir/Mam, Sometimes when I have been ill and if there is some urgency. But even though I have seen to it that the work is not affected to a major level. If I have been ill and not present at the office then I make sure that I am available in phone. And If I am taken leave for any other reason prior I have always explained the work to the concerned to be done in my absence.

Yes sir, as there are circumstances in which you can't afford to not spend a few days to take care of (like a marriage), but the important thing is you have clear communication with your colleagues, your customers and prepare a good backup plan to make sure that the company business is not interrupted in any way.

Nope, I never been absent from work more than a few days, and as I said I always give first priority to my work and I'm purely dedicated to it from past two years.

And I always make sure that my leaves are planned and I inform about it to management at least 15-20 days before so that a back up can be arranged for that time.

Yes I have taken leave for 2-3 days but I have completed my work properly so that there should be no pending work. And told to my Team Leader about the leave before 2 days because that was an urgent leave because my mother is not well and she was in Hospital and no one was there to take care of her. So I took urgent leave for that.
