Is the VetPro process required even if you have previously worked at the VA?

  1. Just wondering if anyone knows once you complete the hiring process for the VA, do you have to go through all of that again when applying for a position? I was lucky enough to work as a contracted employee for the VA through an agency about a year ago. I hear people talk about how long the hiring process is and that it can take months. Since I went through an agency and there was a real need for an employee at the time it did not take very long, only a couple of weeks and I was in. If I were to apply for a position in the future would I have to go through that process all over again or can I skip it? I guess I'm wondering since I've worked at a VA before if the process would be any shorter or it that would give me an upper hand over other applicants? Any info would be appreciated, Thanks.

    I work as a contract nurse for the VA and I was told 'within 10 years' you didn't have to do it again (I was a VA employee > 10 years ago so had to do it all). This may be incorrect, but I am pretty sure if you did it a year ago the process will be MUCH shorter now.

    once you begin the vet pro process and submit your answers, can you go in and make changes?
