Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (San Antonio, TX) in Dec 2020
Direct hire, very easy process. Submitted resume to the department head and received my conditional offer a month later. The hiring process took awhile because the HR department had some internal issues

Can someone provide suggestions on how to crack a Fed job in Canada in CS ( Computer Science) domain. I was interviewed for CS-02 level for Veterans Affairs Canada and even cleared all the interview rounds. But then they say you have been added to a pool. If there is a position available they will reach out. Then why would they post a job if the position is not available, just wasting everyone's time, considering how ridiculous the application process is for fed jobs.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Martinez, CA
I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Martinez, CA)
Applied and was selected to interview. The interview as informal and very unprofessional and very much unlike any civilian interview process. The interview was unprofessional due to the interviewers not seemingly taking the process seriously themselves and joking the entire time inappropriately. Questions were seemingly out of left field and caused the interview to go over the allotted time limit. Inappropriate questions were asked during the interview which alluded to what could be construed as ageism. After interviewing with civilian law enforcement and going through the process with an offer I would highly recommend anyone interested go that route instead of here. I am considering filing a formal complaint on the process. Be wary.

Anonymous Employee in Albuquerque, NM
I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Albuquerque, NM)
Direct hire so no interview was needed. I had prior police experience so my resume spoke for itself. Spoke to human resources on the phone to go more in depth of my experience.
Anonymous Employee in Chico, CA
I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Chico, CA)
Was first called to confirm I was interested in the position then invited to an interview. I checked in with the officer and waited in the lobby on the day of the interview. I was then escorted to a board room where I was interviewed by a five person panel, including one human resources representative. After completing the interview, the escort informed me I would likely get an offer. I later received a call to schedule a chief's interview. The Chief's interview was very relaxed, one on one, in the same board room as the first interview.
- What would you do if your partner on duty found his wife cheating on him in the parking lot and decided to confront them?
I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs
Interview was a standard board style interview for federal jobs. You sit in front of 3 senior officers and they ask you 12 questions. The interview is a Behavior Based Interview. I recommend searching Behavior Based Interview on google and do a little research on them before going. It will help you a lot and give you an idea about the types of questions they ask. I could tell you the questions they asked but it wouldn't help because they don't ask the same questions every time.
