    @mmmarvel yeah I was looking at the site. I'm going to apply for permit tech for sure! Any foot in the door with equal pay to what I'm getting currently is the foot I'm looking for. I currently live in San Pedro. I found the drive to Costa Mesa everyday was killing me so I'd rather not travel...

    @mmmarvel i appreciate the help. Moving really isn't an option in my particular situation. My wife has a well paying job locally, she makes more than I do currently so we can't make it difficult on her. I'd like to stay within a 40 mile drive one way. Depending on pay I'd be willing to drive...

    It sounds like some of you are already inspectors and feel that it is a great career and rewarding as well as challenging. This is exactly what I'm looking for in my career. Could my youth also be a down side when I'm being interviewed?

    How do I get inspection experience? I feel like it's a catch 22. I need the job for experience but I can't get the job. Abuse I don't have inspection experience

    @cda im 32. @ICE id like to do the job correctly so that I may advance and have a career instead of a job. Is this not what people do as inspectors? I know the joke in the field is that inspectors don't know anything. I don't think that's true but maybe it is. Do most inspectors not know what...

    @north star i had one interview that I only dreamt of and when I didn't get it it devistated me. Started making me question if I was for this career or not. Something inside me wants to keep fighting, the whole "what if" situation. I know I can do the job especially after some training and I...

    @steveray tgat was my other question. When you get hired as an inspector do they have you shadowing an inspector till your ready? If so I don't get why it's so important to have 30 years experience in the trades. @cda ive applied to a couple of the third party companies but the only thing I...
