The Veterans Affairs at the Tavares location. Do not expect team work. All smiles when you start. Give it a month. Your coworkers will report to your supervisor like a mole. Trust NO ONE keep your private life personal. Only have postive descushions about work. Micro mangers are everywhere. They will watch you fall. A very sneaky environment. Trust me.

It varies depending on the position and VA facility. I applied for a MSA position June of 2017, and was scheduled for an phone interview two months later, than had another interview (in person) in September.

I was told they will consider me for the position after the fiscal year ends in November. I did my new hiree paperwork in February of 2018,was advised by HR that all new employees start April 28th.

Nearly a year later from when I applied,so the hiring process can be very time consuming. Which was the case for me in New Jersey.
