Veterans Affairs / hiring practices
We are very upset at how VA hires unlicensed workers when other workers with license are available and interviewed. Case and point is the hiring of an ASW (social worker with no license and may get license soon) into Northern California HUD VASH program in Martinez, CA. The supervisor who despite complaints will not budge on his decision. Is this part of VA culture to hire the least qualified? Even when everyone knows that the interview was a sham and the interview had the ASW worker's friend on the interview panel, Why does this not matter? The supervisor gave the ASW all the answers to the performance based questions. Favoritism is alive and well in the VA. Nobody is held accountable for this practice.
