Okay I’ll Chime. I enjoy working for PARR. I just got back from about 30 days in PR and did over 225 inspections. I averaged 10 a day while I was there, should have been more, but we won’t discuss the lack of physical addresses in Puerto Rico.
Like Gerry said, they pay between 43-46 per inspection, depending on which company. PB requires 21 day commitment, PARR requires 30 day commitment. Airfare is provided, hotel, food, intreperter (if needed in PR), gas, rental car, etc. are on you. However, your average expenses are $100 per day and you will make between $400 - $600 per day. For those seasoned inspectors, may not be worth it, for others.....
They do ask that you can take up and go pretty much anytime. You will become a Weather Channel watcher. Most times, they will call you and see if you are available for standby and then call you within 48 hours to go. If you have a chance to go to the training, then do so and get on their list, you never know.
The inspections are nothing like a normal home inspection. They in fact are not a home inspection, they are a disaster inspection. What damage did the disaster do to the dwelling and what does FEMA need to do to make the home safe, sanitary and functional.
