US Department of Veterans Affairs Calverton, NY isn't hiring right now. Check out all US Department of Veterans Affairs jobs
I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs part-time (Less than a year)
If you are a veteran they are great as they really do take care of you & look out for you. They have the best benefits that I have ever seen. Other than that.......
It was my experience, not being a veteran because of medical reasons extending back to when I was 4 years old, that the ONLY reason why I was hired was because I am disabled & that they were looking for any reason to get rid of me which they finally did when I was in hospital which they knew about.
Advice to Management
I understand the need to recruit veterans, but do not discriminate against those of use who could not be veterans because we couldnt serve due to circumstances beyond our control. I felt that I was being discriminated against beginning on my ODA. It is rare that I am able to apply for a VA job on USAJOBS.GOV because I am kicked out of the running for not being a veteran. Through your discriminatory practices you are in essence saying that ONLY veterans & no one else can work for the VA which is very interesting in my case as I do volunteer my time helping the veterans at the Long Island State Veteran's Home located in Stony Brook, New York!!!

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Calverton, NY) in May 2012.
It took one month before I was interviewed & 2 months before I was hired. Be very careful whom you write in as a reference as the VA WILL call them!!! Make sure that you receive permission from your references first before noting them down. Also, regardless of what job you are interviewing for, dress conservatively as it leaves them with a better impression of you than if you were to appear in jeans.
