    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VA Health (Charleston, SC).

    Interview

    Phone interview only, no in person. Human Resources is a mess. They took weeks to send an offer letter and once I received it only told me of 2 days of orientation. It ended up being a week and a half and I had to travel and stay in a hotel. I had to submit background check information 3 different times. Totally unorganized and inefficient.
