Jack did, on occasion, decide to stay in his own department and actually get his work done. It seemed he spent most of his time wandering off, but, he got his work done, so it was hardly like people could fault him for his shortcomings. He'd been an excellent obliviator, and that was why he'd earned his department head position, and that was that.
He currently was trying to finish a very annoying and useless report which he had to relay to the American Head Obliviator, a rather serious woman, and needed to see if an employee in his department had the appropriate paperwork. Wandering over to the man in question's desk, he smiled broadly. "Hey, Callahan. Just wanted to see if you'd finished up the January 13th report incident form yet?" He asked, lounging against the man's desk in a way that clearly conveyed he wasn't really in a hurry.

When it came to his job, Solomon was an excellent worker. He avoided most people, sure. But that was just because he didn't like people. Other then people, he was good at working and he was always good for getting to work early. He didn't mind showing up early at all. Why would he want to do anything else? Really working his job was just perfect for him. He got to wipe people's minds and just move along slowly.
"Most likely." He stated, then looking through his files. He had finished a great many reports, but this would be something different. Snagging a file from the middle of the stack, he flipped through it before nodding to himself. "Here you go." He didn't mind talking or not talking to his boss. Either way, he wouldn't be worried about anything else.
Jack knew Solomon was a hard worker, so he wasn't all that surprised when he produced the report without much difficulty or excuse. Still, it made him a little sad - it meant that he was now going to have to return to work himself. Or he could chat with Callahan. The man didn't strike him as terribly social, but he'd never let another's shyness stop him before.
Leaning into a far more casual position, he took the report but lingered. "You know Callahan, I don't know much about you. You keep to yourself. What do you do in your spare time, when you're not chained to your desk thanks to you evil, slave-driver of a boss?"

Having a boss that wanted to know about him was weird. Solomon was used to being in a rather distant and cold relationship with his family and the other people he had to deal with like that. So instead he'd slowly deal with things like that. But it seemed like he would have to talk to his boss. Oh okay. He almost nodded to himself as he thought about something else. "Well what would you want to know?" It was fair to say that Solomon had done everything in his power to make sure people didn't know things about him.
"I was a Slytherin at Hogwarts. Outside of work, I mostly deal with trying to learn how to do my job better. I really like learning and doing a good job." Sure, one day he would be the minister of magic or something else like that. He wanted to be the boss, but he was going to have to figure something else out. Maybe it would be possible for him to just take over his boss's job sooner rather then later?
It wasn't that Jack necessarily had a burning desire to know the innerworkings of Solomon's mind. It was merely that he wanted to occupy his time with something other than work, as was so often the case. It just so happened that on this occasion Solomon was standing right in front of him, so he got to be the lucky one to get his brain picked.
He listened to the man's words carefully, then waved a little, as if to brush those details away. "Come on Callahan. I could get most of that information from your file. Hard worker, former Slytherin, the desire to excel. Those are all obvious. I want to know more about you. Your dreams. Your reason for choosing this department." He said, urging the man to open up more.

Solomon blinked a few times while he looked at his boss. It was hard to behave. He could just walk away and quit. Accept that he didn't need this job that much. But no. He couldn't do that right now. He needed to go ahead and try to make this work out. "I picked this department because I really like working with people's memories. I like wiping people's memories clean." Part of him wanted to figure out how to use it in his real life or something like that. But oh well.
"As for ambitions: later I'd like to have your job then Minister of Magic." He was too young for too much power, but he had ideas. He had dreams and it was about the only thing he wanted to figure out. Who cared about a social life or anything else like that?
