    Congrats!!!! I am glad you got it!!
    I'm still undergoing the background. I hit a snag but hopefully it will be sorted out. I don't think I will come onboard until early next year. I'm still in school (psych tech) and I can't start work until I am licensed.
    Let me know how it goes!! Hopefully, I will catch up with you. My name is Pete. I'd send you my email but
    I think they block it?
    Take Care!

    hey Pete,

    So far so good here in Salinas DMH. I just want to say how easy this job is compared to working in a LTC or convalescent hospital! 8 hour shift and all your really working is 1-2 hours.. its just spread apart haha. You dont have to deal with families, mostly escorting, the med techs do most of the med passes, its a safe and secured place even if they are inmates, we follow safety to the TEEE! lol but this is the end of my second week here. get in soon man! lol

    Hey!
    I'm glad it is working out for you! Unfortunately, I can't make it.
    Good news I can try again in a year. In the meantime, I'll try to
    get a non-peace officer job (Psych Tech) at one of the state hospital
    then try to transfer over. Maybe next year? Hope you have a great and fruitful Career!
    Take Care,
    Pete
