My name is***** I retired from from the Office Subdivision Engineering Dec,1st, 2015.

He is now classified as an Engineer Technician which is @ least 2 pay scales above his starting job.

I have a letter stating from Bryan Bernard. Personnel Director and the PA stating Mr. Brooks qualifies for the job due to his experience.
