Quality Assurance (QA) Director in Dallas:
"It's not just a job."
Being a Quality Director is much more that a job, it has to be a way of life. If you are responsible for others following rules and protocols, you can't expect to not be held accountable yourself. This means at work and outside of work. You are held to a higher standard than others. You are scrutinized at all times to see if you will bend or break the rules - and thus "give permission" for others to do so. You have to have a strong moral compass and backbone to stand up for what is right, even to the point of leaving a job that does not want to adhere to regulations. But, if you do these things, you will be respected by others and be able to respect yourself.
