Oklahoma affiliate lacks in professionalism and they do not adhere to the over all mission of VOA. They only care about how they look at the expense of others. POOR leadership coming from the Tulsa, OK office. Other affiliates I'm sure are different, but OKlahoma? Stay away. Plus compare the Oklahoma affiliate to the other state affiliate, benefits are almost non-existent.

What benefits I was promised at the beginning of my employment, they took away and then I had to fight to get my second week of vacation back because of their downsizing their vacation time. This is within the Oklahoma affiliate. They offer insurance that is poor and 100% employee paid, when it used to be 100% employer paid for the employee. They also took away our paid life insurance and do not offer 401K til after you've been there 5 years and they don't match. Other state affiliates are not the same. They seem to have excellent benefits and care avout their employees.

My interview was brief over the phone then in person a very basic interview with no formal questions. I was told I had the job after that interview which was odd to me. It was not very professional but very friendly.
