VA has a need for housekeeping staff to help keep facilities clean and safe for patients, staff and visitors.
We are seeking to quickly fill positions at facilities across the nation. We’re looking for quality employees who will help Veterans get better fast. New openings are going up daily, so please visit VA Careers or the USA Jobs website daily for the most up-to-date postings.
Vital support staff
Each year, nearly 9 million Veterans undergo surgeries, recover from injuries, and receive care for acute and chronic conditions at VA.
Behind the scenes, thousands of support services staff members make this possible by keeping our medical centers and outpatient clinics clean and safe. They manage spills quickly, discard trash, install light bulbs, vacuum and scrub floors, and more.
“Our housekeeping staff is absolutely essential to providing a sanitary and healthy environment for our patients,” said Darren Sherrard, associate director of VA recruitment marketing.
Enjoy excellent benefits
VA housekeeping aides receive:
- Paid vacation time that accrues right away, paid sick leave and 10 paid federal holidays.
- Health insurance, including dental and vision, which may become effective on the first full pay period after the job starts.
- Access to the Federal Employees’ Retirement System (FERS), a three-tier retirement plan composed of Social Security, FERS basic benefits and the Thrift Savings Plan.
Child care and transportation assistance programs may also be available.
VA employees who have previously served in the military or another federal government role continue to accrue retirement benefits.
“As a housekeeping aide, you’ll be working alongside other Veterans, who make up 85 percent of the custodial staff,” Sherrard said.
Housekeeping aide positions are open at VA facilities across the United States and its territories. Transferring between locations is easy and you’ll take all of your benefits with you, including accumulated paid time off.
