I don't know where to begin. This was often a hard job on the body and mind. No room for mistakes. The office was very toxic roughly half the time, and there was a lot of personal attacks and disrespect from management. Severely underpaid and always on call, it takes a certain type of person to work here. A person with no girlfriend, family or many friends would do fine. Very hard to schedule personal life, especially between August and April. Lots of good experience in the agriculture industry, working for good respectful clients, traveling the country. But behind closed doors there was a lot of emotional pain and always being nervous. Prepare to dedicate your life to this job. You can't be half invested, you have to go all in. Had some very cool moments here and there with co workers, clients and seeing the country, but overall very glad and relieved I left.
Pros
Experience in agriculture, travel, perks
Cons
Path to self destruction, bad for well-being

Zero management. HR has no value, fully depends on managers. Industrial manager is not effective to look after the company business. Not a single person think lose and profit of this company.

SGS, now ASI will use your car up with not nearly enough compensation to maintain it. The only reason i'm still able to operate my car is that i do most of the repairs. If you drive over 1000 miles a month the system dose't work and i'm usually at 2500 miles a month plus. The compensation for your month of driving usually ends up being hundreds of dollars less that the national average. Inspectors bring in all the money and management squanders it. Management talks about always having new work coming down the pike that never comes through. Too many managers for what the work entails, i basically have three managers that i rarely get help from, most of the time i never consult in them and end up talking to other inspectors about issues. The assignment dispatch system is broken, i could go on for pages about its flaws. We have someone in charge\ getting payed for training that i have never spoke to. There is just nothing good to say about the company.

Immediate management cares greatly about making sure you have to tools to succeed and accomplish your daily tasks. Corporate leaders on the other hand do not.

The work day is very straight forward. Turn on your computer first thing in the morning, Receive dispatched work. Once you've shown quality work you are very much left to your own devices. No one is going to be over your shoulder all day. The amount of daily driving will be determined by the work area you are in. Larger more dense cities, maybe you'll drive 50 miles per day. Less dense areas you could drive up to 200. But the more drive time you have the fewer appointments you will have day to day. Pay is hourly, so if you are out in rural areas and have an hour drive to your next appointment you're still getting paid.
Pros
Freedom, fair reimbursements, opportunities for overnight travel
Cons
Work outside in all weather conditions

An on-call employment with little advance notice for work schedule. Has recently removed any incentives that compensated for this type of schedule. Work type is not too bad.
