Housekeeper Aide (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – August 16, 2019
I've learned that procedures aren't being utilized correctly and supervisors don't care. They had the worst time keeping new employees onboard after 3 weeks.Lack of Communication between the Dept., Units and personnel; Lack of professionalism inside the management section. They failed to listen to personnel complaints or concerns; Departmental Safety Training is highly needed; Lack of job training on procedures, equipment and safety.
Housekeeping Aide (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – August 16, 2019
I have nothing but great things to say about my employment as a housekeeper at the VA. My job and the respectful salary has provided me with a pretty good life for me and my family. The benefits are great, too. There aren’t too many jobs out in the private sector that pay you as well as the VA does (in this area) for the type of work that I do. I happen to work with a great team of coworkers as well as managers. The jobs at the VA are career oriented, and therefore it’s a job that has plenty opportunities for advancement.

Accountability is not something that is enforced within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Low level employess are not held to their performance standards, routinely lie and file false complaints against management and are not reprimanded. This culture directly affects patient care.

Voucher Examiner (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – August 13, 2019
working at the dept of veteran affairs, had its good and bad days. I really didn't like having to be on productivity. I desired to be in the classroom training. Training and implementing and trouble shooting is where I'[m most comfortable at.
