    Not worked for those.
    i worked for Donovan in san diego, and i have been at salinas valley for about a year.
    donovan was bad.
    SVSP is good, more teamwork, less backstabbing.
    feel safer too, even though its a higher level prison than SD.
    next year the RN are going to make 100k/year.

    The name of the prison is valley state for women in the central valley. I understand that they changed from MTA positions to LVN (saftey). Was your interview with a panel.

    Yes, it is usually two or three interviewers. They are interested in knowing if you can follow instructions and ask for help if needed, in my opinion

    Quick question, most positions for state rn's are salary based, right? if you work over the normal 40 hour work week, overtime that is, you don't get compensated correct? Or do you?

    you get overtime pay, many nurses now are getting well over 100K now because of overtime.
