M

Medical Support Assistant (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

ProsThe plus to this job is serving the veterans. Taking the extra step always makes the veteran very happy. A little kindness goes a long way. Veterans will remember who you are when they return and always be happy when they return to the facility knowing that they were helped when they needed to be helped.

ConsTo much work required for the pay. In addition, a degree is also required for this job position. No growth within the organization. Non-veterans have been hired over veterans. Non-veterans have been hired in a higher pay grade than veterans. Veterans have been more qualified then non-veterans, but the non-veteran still was hired.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
