Hi, currently an LPN thats looking to get hired at our local Pittsburgh, Pa VA hospital / critical care clinics.  

My question is about Overtime.  I currently work tons of OT where I'm at. So much so that my salary is 42k a year but last year I made 90k with my overtime.

Can I do this in the VA system? Someone said the VA hires agency when they are short. They dont hire LPNs and allow them to work OT.

Thanks,

I have been in the VA and OT is far and few between, do not count on that as part of your salary.

No way would I expect that amount of overtime with any employer, much less a government agency, unless I had verified this condition with the HR department prior to, or as part of, my onboarding.  This is one of those situations where one would need to see this condition of hire in writing.
