VA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. This benefits system traces its roots back to 1636, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony were at war with the Pequot Indians. The Pilgrims passed a law which stated that disabled soldiers would be supported by the colony. The establishment of the Veterans Administration came in 1930 when Congress authorized the President to "consolidate and coordinate Government activities affecting war veterans."

This forum also includes the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

Perhaps you are working for the VA or interested in working for the VA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the VA.

I actually contacted by email the POC on the job listing. I cut and pasted the conversation below.

Hello,
I was referred in October for Job Announcement 334-18-03-KF-10261981-BU at the GS-9 level.
If possible could you give me an idea when the interview process will begin? I would really appreciate any insight you could provide.


Good morning,

Thank you for your continued interest in the position. We have not received any of their selections regarding the Field Examiners. At this time I am not sure where they are at in the process and when they will be sending us their selections but once we receive them we will then move forward with offers. Once offers are issued we will send everyone their notices through USA Jobs.

Regards

This was last week, so the posting has not been cancelled.

Stand by...haha

I also contacted the POC for the listing I applied to but this is the response I received: "The hiring officials will contact you by telephone or email. I am not involved in the hiring selection process and I am located in Jackson, Mississippi. I only do the job announcements. I hope this answers your questions. If not, please let me know."

it's been about three months since they have referred most of us I feel. I have a feeling they are waiting for the new year for hiring.

I applied in July for a position based out of the Louisville hub. I was referred in October and had a phone interview in November. I didn't hear anything for 3 weeks until I got an email from usajobs saying I was selected. I have now been working with hr and some others and am scheduled to begin training January 7. It was mentioned that 7 or so others are also starting then. I hope this helps any of you waiting to hear from that posting.

Well, I live in the Philadelphia area and I just got an USAJOBS confirmation that I was not selected for the Field Examiner position in Berks County (about 25 miles outside the city). I was Referred back in October. Good luck to everyone.

For those who were referred in October (including myself) I wonder if they will cancel the announcement? Maybe re-announce?
I believe those referral list expire in 90 days (January). However, a lot of variables now due the Government shut down/funding.
