Home Inspector Reviews

What is it like working as a Home Inspector?

Home Inspector in Houston:
"My Job."
Pros: I get to work with a great, family based company. I receive paid vacation with holidays and weekends off. I get to work the hours of a full time job and generally am not home any later than 5:00 pm.
Cons: I dislike that what I do it something that makes people angry, and very little socialization with others. I spend a lot of time alone during the day and sometimes my days can become never ending. No overtime but a full schedule that has to get crammed together. I don't feel as if I make what I am worth and can hardly get assistance when needed.
