Intake Technician/Lead safety staff person, Allenwood, PA - January 3, 2015
This job was a good job as far as job security, although they did not pay well. clients came and had to be processed into our system. sometimes they were combative and difficult. I learned to de-escalate many clients to calm down. before I was an intake tech, I was the lead safety staff. this meant that I would search the clients belongings and sometimes they were not happy then either, doing room searches and overall making sure the environment was safe for everyone. I also transported them home or to appointments while they were there.
