      No doubt, Blaze. Yea, I'm a bit disappointed, but something else will come along without a doubt. It's a bit of a "kick-to-the-nuts" when you get an automated email telling you that you didn't get the job and not even an actual person :0 LOL All joking aside, thanks for the all the question answering etc. Be safe everyone, and I'll see you on the boards.

        • I've seen a couple positions in NY City area open over the last year or so...Orange NJ not so much. VA gives preference to vets for hiring but apply anyway.

            • Hello again, all. So I'm applying for one of the VA Tampa positions. Has anybody heard any good bad things about the Tampa VAMC? It's on the opposite Florida coast for me, so I've never been over there before. Thanks all.

                • Oh s***, are you kidding me?? Well, that is something worth knowing, O-Fed, so I appreciate it. I'm sure heads rolled on that one. I see red just thinking about when a cop goes dirty anywhere, let alone a VET Cop stealing from other VETS. Thanks for the info.

                    Orlando,
                    Not to be argumentative, but you are bringing up something from 7 or 8 years ago, I know this happened in the military by people that were in payroll section to guys that were on deployment around the same time. It's not a real reason to discourage people from applying for the job.

                    The VA in West Palm Beach has 40 employees and patients that were arrested last year for selling prescription meds on the streets last year. Those situations were dealt with and the guilty parties are no longer working here. The only thing to do is to replace them with better people and move on. Yes the reputation of the department was tarnished cause of the actions of a few or 1, but the only thing a department that has had this happen to them is to regroup, get better quality people and move on.

                      I worked DoD in Orlando at the time so I this to be a fact. The VAMC police in Tampa had several officers stealing patient info and opening up Credit card. I'll see if I can find the OIG report. I know they had a problem that forced almost all the mangement out. Like I said, it was 7 or 8 years ago.

                        I know what you're saying and appreciate it. I've already applied, and won't be discouraged by the stupidity of others. (reffering to the former VA Officers who were fired etc) I've no doubt that VAPD Tampa's reputation took a serious hit, but that was then and this is now. No worries on my end. There's 6 vacancies on this latest announcement, so I feel my chances are better than average at least. I got a lot of help from another Officer.com member / VA Officer on how to bring my Fed Resume up to speed, and feel that my application will be considered more seriously this time around. I'd been operating under the private sector way of applying, with a freaking 2 page resume, and have since been corrected on how the Feds want things Fingers crossed.

                            Sounds like it's only a Temporary appointment. My advice unless you are badly in need of a job right now: Pass. You can be canned at a moments notice, and they are under no obligation to extend your appointment past 1 year. Plus; no bennies? Pffft......

                            • There are about 19 announcements for VA Police across the country. Some are multiple openings, some are just for 1 officer. Good luck to those that apply.

                              • Los Angeles VA just opened up for 1 position. Is it true they are able to pull traffic and enforce laws off of the hospital grounds? Do they also still have an ESU (SWAT) team? There doesn't seem to be a lot of updated information on the internet.
