    VA - a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

    Dietetic Intern (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe Dietetic Internship is strong, and has a great reputation. I thought when I was coming in that it would be an amazing and challenging year, but it really turned out to just be challenging.

    ConsBureaucracy, lots of frustrations and being treated like a kid by some of the higher ups. I though that this would be a place where I would make great connections, and I did connect with some of the medical staff and other interns, but overall, the RDs treated us condescendingly, which was really awful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to make the interns feel more welcome so we will come work for you! Almost none of us ever wanted to see that place again.

    Somewhat chaotic...Management could be stronger

    (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedules
    Most people are friendly
    Salary above minimum wage

    ConsSupervisors failed to solve staffing problems and issues in reasonable time
    Very little accountability for bad performance
    Hospital holds onto bad employees instead of letting them go
    Felt like good workers go unrecognized, but are given more work to make up for the failings of other employees
    Nepotism in hiring of some positions

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out who the good employees are and give them a reason to stay
    Figure out who the low performing, problematic employees are and get rid of them
    Management should take more control to solve everyday problems that linger on

    Decent place to work.

    Clerk (Current Employee)

    ProsBeing able to interact with veterans.

    ConsSometimes the work load can become too much. Sometimes patients get mad with rules beyond anyone's control at the VA but Congress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue the staff.
