Salary range as of November 2014
is $4012-$4622 per month based on 40 hour week.
Submitted by John Bacher with this note:
There is a post in the employment section for a locksmith position with
the CDCR (California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation).
Actually there are multiple positions available.

The State has recently opened up testing and is taking applications
for all the prisons. This is the first time in over 20 years I have seen
testing opened up like this. Usually the testing is only for specific
areas or individual prisons.

I have worked as an institutional locksmith in CDCR since 1993.
In that time the state has had trouble recruiting qualified people.
I think many are apprehensive about the prison environment.
While those concerns are understandable I do not believe they
are warranted.

I have a vested interest in trying to recruit qualified candidates.
The facility where I am currently employed is currently in need
of a second locksmith.

It seems like there are always 4 or 5 vacancies at any given time.
The state has 33 prisons so there are many opportunities if you
wish to pursue one.
