It's an alright temporary job

Summer Temp Inspector (Current Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I have been working at SimplexGrinnell

ProsYou get to see a lot of interesting businesses/buildings. The company is really a leader in its field as you will not find a superior fire safety product out there. The management really seems to care about its employees (most of the time).

ConsWhile the company gives you vehicles to use, up to one hour of travel each way is not compensated. If your job location is far from the office expect an 11 hour day while only being paid for 8 hours. The dispatching system isn't the most organized and can cause customers to already be upset upon arrival.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive new inspectors better standardized training instead of on the field observation. If you're with an inspector who doesn't know what he's doing you're going to learn how to do things the incorrect way.
