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.

it means the hiring manager has the list...and HR is waiting for him/her to decide on who they are going to make an offer too.

Just keep calling HR every hour and maybe you'll get the job. LOL
VA's motto, "Hurry up and wait"!

They usually know after the last interview who is going to be hired, HR is where it slows down. They may have already contacted the selected person and are waiting for them to accept before they can officially say someone else has been hired.

Just be warned, the VA is doing away with local network admins and such at the facility they work at. Good luck if you want a service line job, unless you're in the Good Ole Boy network you won't get one and be stuck in hardware. Good luck though. VA IT is horrible compared to DoD.

common sense

I'm a terminated VA employee who had filed, along with another VA Veteran-employee who was also terminated, a collective action lawsuit in the Eastern District of PA a lawsuit challenging the "National Performance Standards."  The lawsuit is based upon violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and having to work unpaid through lunch and after regular workday in order to meet the National Performance Standards.  If you're one of these current or former VA employees, please call Stephen S. Pennington, Esq. at 215/564.2363 to sign-up for the lawsuit.
