"When I arrive to work every morning the first thing I do is review any incident reports from the overnight shift. Once I have completed that, I do a walk through on the floor. I do multitask but not to the point where it is a distraction. I also do not leave until my tasks are done for the day. You will never see me pushing something back for the following day."
Staying on target with your goals and deadlines is incredibly important as a QC Inspector. Tell the hiring manager how you stay focused in a role where multitasking is required.
