  • I got a J-O-B!

    Hello All,
    I got my first job in Security!

    Working for a company called HSS (Hospital Shared Services) based out of Denver, with the CA office in Brea. I'll be working graveyard at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo (CA).
    I interviewed yesterday with corporate yesterday and today went on-site to meet the site supervisor. Went really well... I got the call from corporate before I even made it home! She said the site supervisor really liked me and wanted me on ASAP.

    I go back to Brea on Friday to take training for IAHSS (Certification in Healthcare Security). Then I'll get my schedule and start WORK.
    WoooHooo!

    As I anticipated, I'll be rolling weapon-less. No gun, no baton and no OC...
    On the upside, the supervisor said in the almost 5 years he's been on-site, there has never been a physical altercation with a guard.
    Gotta love working in "Yuppie Areas"!

    Just thought I'd share the good news!!!
    (again, WooooHoooo)

    EDIT:Oh Yeah... Forgot to mention, they're going to start me out at $12/hr!
    And once again... WOOOOOHOOOOO!

      With a company name like "Hospital Shared Systems," I'd wonder if they had him doing janitorial or maintenance duties, but then I remembered. Its Cali. SEIU would have a fit if they had a non-union guard doing a union janitor's duties.

      Good luck, and remember, never piss of a doctor, they are God.

        No janitorial duties...
        The "Shared" part comes in that supply other trained positions to hospitals as well as security.

                I'd hate to have to take it to one of them (with my flashlight I guess)! Just kidding...

                              I'm sure he appreciates your congradulations but look at the date of his post. IT WAS LAST YEAR It ain't new anymore.
