Fire Investigator (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – January 26, 2014
Pros: interesting work, decent work/life balance
Cons: required overtime, sometimes unpaid.
Alot of required overtime hours 50-60 hr weeks, including weekends. Frequent short unplanned trips. Bonus program can be difficult to obtain and is highly dependent on the market. Fire Investigators/Engineers are required to market themselves. High Turnover Rate with employees. High Stress, but interesting and rewarding work. Everyday is different.
