    Look under Government Tab under Specialties. There are a few threads about hiring and working there. It can be a long process getting hired.

    I did a summer internship at the va and I absolutely lived it. Great atmosphere, everyone is always helping one another and definitely a great place to work.

    Very nice to hear. Makes me wish I was able to go on interview. Was it one of the va hospitals downstate or upstate?

    That place is harder to get into than a Justin Bieber concert.

    No not to me it is. I was called for an interview but declined it for other reasons. I went to usajobs website and for Albany they even extended the app due date. So they did call, would have I been hired, well yeah who knows. But it seems they are looking for people in the upstate ny region, forget downstate though.

    I just got hired by the VA govt hospital in Brooklyn, NY. i am a new grad no experience with a AAS degree. i have no special conections their. They are hiring new grads. it took a very long time after i applied to get an interview like 5 months and another 4 months to get a start date. the pay an benifits are excellent. and the plus is that after a while you can transfer to another state and have the same job if you would like.

    Hi mlobifaro, I am scheduled for an interview with the Brooklyn VA. Do you happen to have any specific tips? What should I expect from the interview? Thank you in advance.
