I worked at Virginia Housing Development Authority full-time (More than 10 years)
Benefits are wonderful. Upper management cares about the employees and will work with you whenever they can.
Some people can be gossipy and cut throat. It just depends on where you work.
Advice to Management
You're doing a great job. Maybe listen more to lower level associates. They are the ones who really run the company and know how things work. They are in the best position to offer advice and make positive changes.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Virginia Housing Development Authority (Richmond, VA) in May 2015.
Initial phone interview with HR person. Called in for face-to-face interview which started with the HR person, then went to a panel. Standard interview questions - how have you dealt with a difficult person, etc. - quite a bit of repetition from one panel member to another. But the process was good.
When the position was offered to another candidate, HR notified me by phone and by email.
