How do you answer 'Describe a time when your work was heavy and how you handled it'?

The best solution I have found for unlimited work tasks are ''To do:'' lists. On Fridays, I list the '''major''' things I have to do for the next week on ledger paper by days of the week. I know when I leave Friday that I have the most things covered for the next week. On Monday, as I accomplish one of the items from that day, I mark off that task and start the next one. My phone rings constantly; listing and marking off completed tasks is essential. This is sort of like an abbreviated version of the Stephen Covey 7 Habits of Highly Effective People training but not as structured. Plus, seeing things I have accomplished and marked off as done encourages me to keep going.

1)Priorities; what can wait & what can't 2)Delegate work; that's what a team is for! 3)Plan; write a list of what needs to be done, and who can help you get it done. If the deadlines look unattainable or unreasonable, you can assess whether you need to request for more time now, as opposed to missing the deadline and making someone VERY angry! 4) Try to work ahead of yourself so that you always have time for additional ad-hoc tasks... 5)WORK EFFICIENTLY. Find new/quicker ways of working. For example, this could be finding shortcuts in Excel (of which there are thousands).

Give a specific example. The interviewer wants to hear how you handled something inthe past and how it relates to what their needs are. How your experiences can help them in the future. Always give a STAR answer that itemizes the Situation, Task Action and Result.

Heavy work can definitely be done after knee replacement surgery provided you have rehabilitate your new knee well. What we have to understand is when we say heavy work following your knee replacement, we have to avoid high impact activities that puts stress on our knees like jumping and kicking and other activities. At the same time heavy activities for other parts of the body should not be a problem.
