Im applying for a gov job with the VA. It mentions that they run a check of former and current employers. First, i dont want my current job supervisor to know im job searching. And second, even though i am an exceptional employee, my current supervisor can be vindictive. She has even been writen up twice and recently had our administrator come in to discuss complains about her so i dont trust her to be interviewed. Im wondering if they call to check my employment - do they simply call HR or do they actually have to talk with my supervisor? And does anyone know when in the process they check employment? .

I'm interning there right now. I didn't get an employment check (or at least I don't think so), but wouldn't you be able to list your references for them to call?

Employment verification with the VA depends on your position. Non professional/medical is done via a form sent to HR or to whomever YOU TELL THEM to send it to. If you list the company and address but no spoecific person, it probably will end up in HR. What your current company's HR does with it, or who they give it to for completion is up to them. Professional or medical positions will likely have some verbal communications.

Thanks for the feedback. I listed references but of course the hospital i currently am at is listed as well. Yes, its a professional/health services job. All others that i work with would give me great reviews....but its unfortunate that my direct supervisor is so bad and untrustworthy. It wouldnt surprise me if the would sabotage it to keep me in my position :-(.
