What do you like least about being a Quality Control Inspector?
Answer example

"The part of being a QC Inspector that I enjoy the least is probably the mass amounts of paperwork that I need to complete on a daily basis. I do understand that it needs to be done, however; I very much enjoy being face to face with my team. It feels like I make a bigger impact that way."

Entry Level

"I am new to my career as a QC Inspector, so I have not yet discovered my favorite or least favorite tasks. While attending University, I did find the most challenging part of my coursework to be CAD (computer-aided design). We touched on our CAD skills to some degree; however, I did not feel strong enough in this area post-grad. For this reason, I have enrolled in a two week CAD course which starts next week. "


"Documentation has never been my favorite focus, primarily because I am not the fastest typer and I prefer verbal communication. This includes logs, the summary of my day's work, and sending emails. For that reason, I am taking an online typing course which will help me to feel less overwhelmed when it comes to these written related tasks."
