At one point, there was a Supervisor & Spouse & Child working at my VA. A lot of mgmt have given their extended family employment although clearly unqualified. It is continuing at an alarming rate. Favoritism cliques, Boyfriend/girlfriend galore.
Worst job I have ever had .Most of the Veterans who got employed are just there to work the system.
80% looking on how to get the inside scoop of raising their disability, getting medical retirement and they are doing it. Only looking out for themselves, not the Veteran coming in the door.
Managers have harassed employees to the point they will transfer to another VA to alleviate their stress.
I stay because I love my Veterans and need the money.
Otherwise, I would rather shovel manure than work with the stress created amongst the walls.
Nepotism-favoritism, unqualified co-workers milking the system
