I am a veteran and former VA employee (I worked at two facilities). Some of my old coworkers were vets. So, they do hire vets. However, do they give them preference as required? That one I am not so sure about,

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.
