Yes, it depends on the business and the kashrus organization, but plenty of mainstream kashrus organizations do hire women. I believe Star K and CRC do. Not sure which others off the top of my head

I don't know details, just that they exist. I would imagine one would have to go through dome form of training and to be very familiar with all relevant halachos.

Yes definitely. I have good friends who are משגיחות. Much more common in small Jewish communities.

At one point I remember seeing that the OU was offering a five-day advanced course for women, for industrial kitchens. Reach out.
The Star K in Baltimore offers a two-day course for women.

I was a mashgicha as a teenager for several restaurants/ caterers. Training is pretty minimal ( I think I remember it being a few hours and then on the job training).

I think there are different types of mashgiach.

There are those who just open eggs and control salads & fruits & veggies, and I think their salary is quite low, in general.. They are kind of "assistants".

And there are those who are really responsible of the whole kashrut of the whole business, they might have quite nice executive salaries... (but let me guess: they won't hire women for that)

I sure hope so. I'm a mashgicha in a poultry plant. In charge of milicha.
Trained on the job. I am approved by a number of hashgacha companies.
No, I won't say where I work, just in case anyone has a problem with a mashgicha, I don't want to cause any problems for my company.
