Business Manager (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – July 31, 2018
Great place to begin and end a career, fulfilled with helping our Nation's heroes. The Department of Veteran Affairs has many opportunities and resources for our veterans. The VA strives for excellence and continues to meet the day to day challenges as they are presented.

Housekeeping Aid (Former Employee) – Mather, CA 95655 – July 28, 2018
This was a great place of employment. I had to resign because my girlfriend's schedule and my schedule were the same which were PM shifts. Someone had to stay home for the kids after school, there was no way we could work the same shift after school hours.
Health Technician/Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – July 27, 2018
Typical day was seldom NOT busy. The workplace culture could be A LOT better that it was - mgmt was somewhat (a lot) lacking. The hardest part of the job was having to do your job and two other employee jobs while they were busy doing personal work. The most enjoyable was the interacting with the patients, getting the the help that they needed.
Loved working with the patients
Mgmt enjoyed gossiping and fighting a little too much

Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 25, 2018
There was too much work and not enough workers. Management was terrible. Typical of a Govt. entity. My supervisor had no idea what my job entailed. I would not recommend this job to any of my friends. I feel sorry for the Vets that go there. they still are not getting the care they deserve.
Computer Assistant (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – July 24, 2018
The absolute worst organization (for lack of a better word) that I have ever worked for. As someone said before, upper management has no caring or compassion for patients but wants those numbers to look real nice on paper. The workers (at least 75%) are lazy, don’t care and are not team players which gives good, reliable workers a bad name. Management has no backbone and has no idea how to manage. You can’t get fired unless you’re going to jail or you can be “let go” because of prejudicial unprofessional attitudes of supervisors. It’s extreme one way or extreme the other way. There’s no middle ground. The VA’s leadership at the higher does not care. There is no continuity with leadership. I saw at least 9 directors during my 19 1/2 years there.
This company gave me an opportunity to work for the federal government
Nursing Supervisor, RN (Former Employee) – Hilo, HI – July 24, 2018
I was able to work independently. Our clinic participated in many pilot programs that gave me the opportunity to evaluate and be in the process for further development of The Department of Veteran’s Affairs continued care.
Great work environment
Patients can be demanding, forceful and on occasion violent
