Earlier in my career, when I would get overwhelmed with work. I would try to work as quickly as possible to show off to my superiors on my production. However, when I would conduct the re-inspection, their were some violations that could been noted during the my first initial inspection. So I learned to take my time during inspections because it saved my time as well as the property owners time in the long run to correct the violation.
10.
I have learned that customer service is paramount.

1.
We had a aircraft hanger at work that was being renovated, all the extinguishers was removed. When the renovation was complete the construction company put ABC extinguishers back up when BC extinguishers where the correct ones to put up. The construction company and the company who leased the building were complaining. So I called FM office at Henrico and told them what I had and what was going on and they sent a representative with me to meet with the construction company and the leaser to solve the problem.
2.
Hard question, I would like to think if I break down any task to smaller components I can do anything, I can not recall a task that I have not been able to complete with the help of others if nessary.
3.
An assignment that was too difficult to me was one that I've never come across in the field before during my time in fire prevention. The situation occurred during a rough smoke control system testing for a new high rise building. Since I was unfamiliar with the testing procedures, I researched the NFPA code requirements for Smoke Control Systems and I requested assistance from my peers during the testing process. As a result, I gained hands on experience, from my peers, as well from the contractors who did the installation.
4.
Embrace the job and use it as a learning tool. The more you known the easier the job becomes.
4.
Walk me through your resume, highlighting all of your inspection related experience.
