There’s a job opening at work for a quality control inspector

It’s the same pay grade as my current job and I’m thinking about bidding for it. A couple of people have expressed interest but I have more seniority and similar experience.

I wouldn’t mind the change. I think it would be less stressful inspecting parts instead of running a bunch of different machines to make them but I’m always hesitant about change. So I’m waffling a bit.

Change is as good as a holiday
I've also debated switching from production to quality. But the quality job looks too boring to me.
Handing out the red tags is awfully appealing though lol
We actually don’t get many failures at inspection. The crew here is pretty good at what they do.
I came to the job looking for low stress but ended up taking on a challenge to do more specialized work in a different area than I applied for.

This seems like a good opportunity to get back to a low stress position.
@Onestarlitnight We don't have many failures either. But the testing they do is so monotonous. I need something more challenging and stimulating. For me that's being on the end that keeps failures low, even if it is stressful at times.

I’m strongly considering it.
I’ve been here for less than two years so I’m not sacrificing my pay grade.
It’s an opportunity.
Still 2nd shift but lower stress with a bit less overtime
