I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (More than 8 years)
You have the ability to change jobs if you wanted to move out of the state. There is more job security than in the private sector.
This VA is outdated. They pretend to encourage upward mobility but there is little. Little change for Veterans to reach Administrative roles.
Hiring and funding is based on personal feelings rather than professional.
Unfortunately they do little to motivate people on units to go to school.
The hiring process is long and annoying because your life can not be expected to stop till they decide to give you a job.
Mandation is still here.
8 hour shifts
When managers leave then the nurse may be detailed to replace them.
There is limited accountability so people feel free to do what they want. Too many chiefs and limited Indians.
Advice to Management
Would love to see them on the unit. They no longer do "grand rounds". No communication towards the staff to assess what they need to better perform on the job. Give feedback. The my voice matters does not work if you do not come and speak to people. It is no longer enough for you to expect people to stay just because the benefits are good.

I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Castle Point, NY) in March 2017.
The questions for the interview were PBI. I searched online for various samples of PBI questions to prepare and simply studied them. The VA does things in a very slow manner, therefor the hiring process is definitely slow and methodic.
