U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Reviews

75 reviews
All Categories
I work at the Veterans Crisis Line. I love my job, talking to Veterans. I am able to be there for Veterans in crisis and connect them to services and resources within and outside of the VA. My direct supervisor is beyond amazing. She is supportive, motivating, and provides excellent constructive criticism that leads to growth. Upper level management has yet to learn how to communicate effectively with the Frontline staff, listen to Frontline staff, and meet basic needs of staff that would increase our productivity, retention, and wellness. The pay is great, benefits are great but getting time off can be difficult.
Bottom Line: The work makes the upper level mismanagement worth it.

Best employer ever. Great benefits for all employees including dental, vision and medical! Great supervisors and your colleagues help create a great working environment!
