My co workers genuinely wanted to adjust veterans. However, the poor management and favoritism prevented us from being as successful ad we're could have. Most people tele worked to prevent going into the office. I worked Yvette fromn 2016 til mid 2018 then took a job several levels below my pay grade just to get away from there. As a disabled veteran myself, I started experiencing severe depression and anxiety while working here. servers
You cannot do the work that is required under the timeframes given so employees choose shoddy work to stay employed or great work and risk getting fired!! There is no work life balance and the standards are going up...meaning this culture will persist!!
The job is production base. They leave you in training for so long that you don’t realize what the job really is until you have invested so much time into it with traveling out of state for training etc. The claims take a while to do, and they have a production goal to meet per day with old archaic systems and ways of working claims. Production goals are unrealistic and your best bet is to apply for a better job.
The Department of Veterans Affairs is a company that does apply policies and procedures equitable in treatment of their senior employees within retirement especially those with hidden disabilities. They work for disabled Veterans, their dependents and survivors. However, they do not support their employees with disabilities most of which are disabled and/or become so based upon their employment within the organization.
Good training, helpful supervisors and productive work environment. The training was engaging and required your full concentration. The coaches and supervisors are there every step of the way to make sure you succeed in whatever position you are hired to perform. There are fun days to encourage a positive work culture.
I provide excellent customer service and their family members. it is one of the most rewarding jobs that I have ever had. I spend most of my time at the VA doing every thing I can do to help the Veterans.
Always had a heavy workload, but there was always room for improvement and advancement. At the time I began my employment, the VA was attempting to catch up on a claims backlog. This maybe the reason for the daily heavy workload.
Department of Veterans was a great place to work, I just decided I wanted to work in the field I went to college to for. If you are looking for a fast pace career and learning new things everyday, this is the job for you.
The VA is a very proactive facility, highly competitive and challenging. The supervisors are courteous and friendly and the coworkers work well under challenges and is a great team. The most difficult part of the position is memorizing the federal laws and regulations for each of our Veteran's benefit care packages.
