    I have been working at Virginia Housing Development Authority full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone really believes in the mission of helping all Virginians achieve quality, affordable housing. Benefits and pay are better than the private companies I have worked for before.

    Cons

    Onboarding process was a little rough--took them a while to get me access to applications like the time sheet system, and enrolled in basic things like 401(k) and Health insurance. Also took finance more than a month to get me the travel card, etc that I needed for my work-related travel.

    Advice to Management

    Work with HR to improve the onboarding process--employees shouldn't have to be emailing reminding them they need to sign up for health insurance, or need log-ins for the time clock applications

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Virginia Housing Development Authority (Richmond, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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.
