Pillar To Post® is the leading home inspection company in North America. Our goal is to make the home inspection experience educational and easy for our customers. Our inspectors use the latest innovation and technology to create customized home inspection reports and deliver them on site. Our talented team accomplishes the home inspection process with quality, integrity and exceptional customer service.

Our business is growing, and we are offering an exciting opportunity for an aggressive self-starter who possesses dedication, professionalism and true people skills. This is a fast-paced business with a reputation for quality, custom reports and outstanding customer service. We will train the right individual.

* Responsibilities will include performing home inspections and inspection related activities and then meeting with real estate agents and clients on-site to review the inspection report and results. In addition to the actual inspection, time is spent in compiling the inspection report, assisting in Realtor and company sponsored events and communicating with clients and agents via phone, text and email and in person. * Employees will receive the necessary training to become a certified home inspector. They will also be trained to use proprietary systems and processes to perform the best home inspections in the area. Training is mandatory regardless of previous experience (7-12 weeks).  * Inspections are scheduled 5, sometimes 6, days a week primarily in Utah and Sanpete counties, but may occasionally extend as far as Logan or Manti. Saturdays will be alternated depending on workload. * All primary, specialized equipment will be provided by the company. * Opportunity is FULL-TIME once training is complete. * Inspectors do not (and CAN NOT) offer or perform any contractor or handyman work for properties inspected. These are statements that describe the ideal candidate for our team:

* If you like the idea of working with a small group of dedicated individuals... * If you don’t mind working on your own with little oversight throughout the day... * If you want to be part of a smaller company, help it to grow, and be a part of that growth and change... * If you are looking for opportunities to make a difference in a small company and to learn other roles such as marketing and operations... * If you like to think outside the box to come up with new ways of doing something, especially leveraging technology... * If you like working with and teaching people, even complete strangers... * If you like to take a topic and can learn in depth about that topic for the pleasure of learning... * If you like to work hard and play hard... * If you want to find a job that can be a career for the next several years... * If you want to learn new skills and love sharing those new skills with others... * If you can watch someone do something and then repeat those actions with a high level of accuracy... * If you like to go to YouTube and find a DIY video and then successfully perform that task... * If you excel at typing out and crafting carefully worded emails, documents, and reports summarizing your inspection findings... * If you can keep a cool head in stressful situations, even in the face of criticism... * If you can be confident performing a task you have learned and project that confidence to those around you... * If you are able to work longer hours in the summer when demand is high (10-12hr days occasionally) ... * If you want to build relationships with clients and other team members... * If owning or running a home inspection company someday sounds intriguing... If you agree with those staements, then this job may be right for you. HOWEVER...

* If you want a consistent 8-hour day schedule... * If you don't like to read text books to study technical subjects... * If you want to be left alone each day to just put your head down and work…. * If you want to do inspections like an independent contractor... * If you want to just get the job done and not be troubled with the drama that might be happening related to the purchase of the home... * If you want to just work with the inspection clients and not directly with real estate agents... * If you want a less physical job than many construction jobs... * If you aren't prepared to commit to this team for at least 2 years... * If you are hoping to be trained as a home inspector and then go on your own... * If you don't like to be told HOW to do your job... * If you like a job that lets you clock out mentally at 5pm and not have to think about it until the next day... * If you don't want to receive occasional texts or phone calls from co-workers/clients in the evenings or on weekends... * If you want a job where you know exactly what you will be doing each and every day... * If you don't like change... This may not be the position for you and we wish you the best.
