1) In your opinion, what are the top three qualities or characteristics an Electrical Inspector should possess?

Answer Example:
"In my opinion, the top three qualities every Electrical Inspector should possess are excellent interpersonal skills, attention to detail, and organizational skills. Interpersonal skills cover a range of skills, including listening, answering questions, patience, and effective communication. Attention to detail is vital in this line of work because the job is technical, and electrical hazards cannot be overlooked. Electrical Inspectors also need to be organized to handle the workload and use time efficiently."

2) What is the most important thing you have learned as an Electrical Inspector?

Answer Example:
"The most important thing I have learned as an Electrical Inspector is to take my time when doing an inspection. My mentor taught me that early on in my career and expressed the importance of doing a thorough, professional job."

3) How do you handle stressful situations?

Answer Example:
"I handle stressful situations by remaining calm, taking a step back, and focusing on the situation. I want to determine what makes the situation stressful and find ways to alleviate that stress. I recently had a stressful situation when a job I worked on did not pass inspection. The Electrical Contractor started yelling at me, throwing his tools, and telling me I was wrong. I took a deep breath, calmly explained why he was not passing inspection, and showed him the electrical code. It was an easy fix, and I explained that I could pass the inspection once he changed a breaker. The contractor calmed down and said he had made a mistake and would fix the problem right away. I find that remaining calm is the key to dealing with stressful situations."

4) Have you ever had to take on a leadership role? Tell me about the outcome.

Answer Example:
"Yes, I have taken on leadership roles in my career as an Electrician. I led a crew of eight individuals who reported to me for their assignments. I was a mentor for apprentices and supervised my crew on every project. I have always had a good outcome in leadership roles as I believe in working alongside my crew while providing motivation and inspiration to do the best work possible. I enjoy working with others and look forward to working in a leadership role with your company if hired."

5) What makes you the best person for this job?

Answer Example:
"I am sure you have many qualified applicants for this position. I am the best person for this job because I have all of the qualities you are looking for in an Electrical Inspector, and I have more years of experience than you require. I have worked as an Electrical Inspector for 15 years and have experience with residential and commercial buildings. I have excellent interpersonal and critical thinking skills, and I have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. I also have a proven track record of being fair, professional, and treating all customers with dignity and respect."
