An enjoyeable Job
Disposal ban inspector (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 August 2015
Interaction with public whole day, awareness and education on related duty and bylaw enforcement in case of no compliance. I have learned dealing with public from any and different backgrounds.

Management is wonderful together with co-workers it's like family company.

The hardest part of the job is when people don't want to listen or to comply with the bylaw.

It's fun dealing people, answering their questions and providing needed and necessary information related to the zero waste challenge.
Pros
No supervisor but you plan the duty according the company policy
Cons
standing, walking and talking and interaction with people the whole shif hours.
