Health Benefits - Waco, TX - November 25, 2021
The reason did not make a career of this job is, I was not given credit for Saudi Arabia. This would have given me time towards retirement. Veteran were given time for serving Iraq and the way I look at this is, serving in the military during war time conflict is the same regardless of the location.

Registered Nurse - November 8, 2021
became politically involved, they tried to make me resign, but I refused, I did nothing wrong. After COVID slowed down, I became a target of management because I was the Union President. I saw many wrong doings by them and vocalized my opinions. Therefore, I became a target because I fought for nurses being wrote up because they were told what to chart, with holding information, on truths.

Rating Veteran Service Representative - St Petersburg, FL - June 18, 2021
VBA puts production over getting the veterans claims right the first time. And when you rush and make a mistake, they hold you accountable. I worked there for 15 years and there were constant changes almost weekly! And if you're the type of person that doesn't handle constant changes, then I recommend you keep looking. Awesome pay, but it will wreck your home life and challenge your integrity.

The Chief and Assistant Chief that I worked for were very professional and pro officer. Like any department there were excellent officers as well as some who only did a minimum to get by. I enjoyed most of my time working there. Great position for starting a police career or for older officers wanting to continue their career after retiring from another police department.

Advanced Medical Support Assistant - Golden, CO - March 24, 2021
Immediate supervisor created a hostile work environment amongst employees and uses intimidation. I was addressed by lead as "Chica" and when I reported it, I was fired. No-one cares to fix the problem. Co-workers would leave patients sitting in waiting room for hours. The worst place I have ever worked.
