Ratings Specialist (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 6, 2016
Management here is largely incompetent and corrupt, with some exception. The organization has unrealistic goals and methods by which to achieve them.. Employment is stable, benefits are solid the sole benefits of employment here.
Staffing and Recruitment Assistant (Current Employee) – Independence, OH – December 6, 2016
I've learned so much about HR working at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The training is outstanding. I especially enjoy reviewing requests for personnel action and coding the information into HRSmart. It helps me test my knowledge of OPM and VA staffing regulations.
Excellent employer for anyone willing to jump in and do the work
Medical Support Assistant (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – December 6, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the VA. I learned many skills that I have brought with me into my continued professional life. The pace of the job was quite fast, but things ran smoothly as everyone came together as a team.
Professional Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – December 5, 2016
Sad to say, many misconceptions are from the outside-in and I understand that. I work within the VA with other Veterans and I assure you that we are doing the best within our limits to provide the best care and treatment for out Veterans. Those "bad decisions" come from other individuals.
Administrative (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach – November 30, 2016
Government job so all of the standard good things like Job Security but this is not a good place to advance. Supervisors would rather hire from another VA for promotions so they don't get accused of favoritism by promoting within. So, even though you may work hard and excel at your position, you will be treated the same as those who do the bare minimum. Sooner or Later even the most motivated workers figure this out so you either move on or become a bad employee.
Veteran Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL 60612 – November 29, 2016
The place is ever-changing from new management to new rules every other day. The constant changes can cause much chaos, but on the other hand, it is very rewarding when you know you have helped a Veteran in a positive way.
Volunteer, Volunteer Services (Current Employee) – Hampton, VA – November 28, 2016
Working with the staff has taught me more about the veterans that are in need of assistance. The breadth of knowledge that i have received , as well as the varied tasks that your staff manages daily provided an environment that was both exciting and challenging.
