Takes around 4 to 5 months from when you apply online. Apply online, interview about a month after you apply. Once picked, you have to do background check, fingerprints, physical and onboarding paperwork. Paperwork is a lot. There is strict deadlines when everything is due. Once cleared by boards then hr calls you with final offer and orientation start date. Took me 4 to 5 months.

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.
