Dept Of Veterans' Affairs experience report

  • 25.Dec 2018
  • Employee

I love my job on the National Veterans Crisis Line saving lives of Veterans contemplating suicide.

4.33

Suggestions for improvement

  • They encourage you to file sexual harassment suits if you are being harassed, but when you do, there are no repercussions for the person who is initiating the sexual harassment.

What I like about the company

Veterans mean a lot to me since I come from a military family. I have a lot of satisfaction from my job when I have helped to save a Veteran from suicide. I would want someone to do the same for my family members if I was not in a position to help them. I have worked for the VA for the past 16 years and plan to stay there until I retire.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing happens quickly, it happens at a slow pace.
