It should be considered discrimination for employers (Post Office, Federal Jobs, State Jobs, etc.) to give preference to Veteran's just because they were in the military. I feel like I get screwed out of the best jobs because I'm not a Veteran. I think if a Veteran wants a job let them stay in the military. Leave the normal jobs for us normal civilian people. If they're a disabled Veteran let them collect their government checks and stay home.

I appreciate Veterans for what they do but I don't think we need to kiss their butts! Besides, it was their CHOICE to enter unless drafted so they made their bed let them lie in it and stay in the military until they can retire. I choose NOT to get shot at!

You sorry SOB, I'm not asking nobody to kiss my ass, I love My Country and that's why I did the unthinkable, and I don't know of another vet who would think any different than me. And if it were possible everyone of us would do it all over again. So go peddle your garbage else where.

To "Veteran", you must be one of the asshats that used their preference points to gain a Federal job! Weren't you smart enough to get it on your own merit?

You call it what you want, I own my own Co. and have twenty seven men and women on my pay roll, which are mostly Veterans. I know if he/she isn't afraid to take a bullet then I know he/she isn't afraid to give me an honest days work. That's the kind of people that builds our Country that you live in.

The biggest question would be do you have the qualifications of a veteran?? They are not given the jobs only because they are vets. They have to pass the compentency tests and have experience for the job despcription. Sounds like you want something handed to you without proper credentials for the job and rag on the vets because they have at least shown some loyalty and gumption in their choices. Whine Whine Whine You must be some poor person that has just been passed over so many times by some worthless vet that could outscore you and do the job with their eyes closed. People like you make me totally nauseated. I'm sure even if there were still a draft, you would find a way to beat it and set you lazy rear at home and rag on the guys protecting your way of life. UGGG!!!!!!!!

So you admit to favoritism of Vererans over a civilian? What is the name of your company so I can apply, get turned down because I'm not a Veteran, then sue your ass off for discrimination!

I did not get from his statement that her favored vets, just that he favored employees he could trust to get the job done and demonstrate loyalty. BUT I should let him answer for himself. This was just my take on the comment. Sounds like you are looking for an easy way out,, not a job to really work.

A thorough back ground check, drug screening, Education preference and the fact that you've threatened to sue my Company would more than likely prevent your employment.

Screwedover, as a veteran myself I will explain something an assclown like yourself may not understand. Being a veteran who has been honorably discharged has shown their ability to have discipline, responsibility, leadership qualities, teamwork, and a selfless attitude that a selfless, unhonorable, coward such as yourself would never understand and maybe if your attitude didn't reflect your worthlessness you might get a decent job but I will be generous and if you need a few bucks I will let you do a few chores around my house and show you how to do it up to par with military standards then you may understand why being a veteran is such a good asset on a resume.

Some veterans maybe, but this does not apply to all.

I am VERY qualified, yet because of Veteran's preference points I never get called for federal jobs. It's an unfair hiring practice that gives them an extra 5 to 10 points over me. I scored VERY high yet never get a job with the federal government. Whoever implemented this system didn't think of the American People when they created it. They have created a favoritism towards hiring Veterans over civilians with the same qualifications (or less) just because they served in the military. Veterans already get VA healthcare, for life, so you're trying to tell me it's fair for them to get preference in gaining employment too? BULLSHIT! Why should I be denied a wonderful federal job because I wasn't able to go into the military? Doesn't seem fair huh?

It may have something to do with the fact that you are not qualified. The reason Vet's get preference points is to assist them with returning to civilian employment. We (most of us at least) are very dedicated to what we do for a living, and we do it well. From what I am reading, you must not be scoring well enough through testing and interviewing. From the way you talk on here, you would be lucky to flip burgers at McDonald's

Excuse me! In your earlier post, you stated you didn't want to enter the military because "you didn't want to get "shot at"' A cowardly excuse! And you're speaking of a Federal Government job.

You are grossly misinformed if you think a vet has a breeze coming home and getting a job. Granted, they do serve by choice and aren't we lucky all don't hold your standards. Your vervage implies you have several other issues, besides cowardice, so I'll look somewhere else for blame than our VETS. Get a grip and as another post noted, I wouldn't want your flipped burgers even if I did eat them. And I really wonder what makes you think all Fed jobs are so wonderful. Many require the hard work and dedication that the vets can produce, Your facts are wrong about lifetime medical care. There maybe so WWll vets that receive full benefits, but our active soldiers right now, have a system called TriCare which is just like any other insurance. They have copays, deductibles and the whole load of crap we civilians have to deal with on a regular basis. Federal employees are the same, They have a program with the same copay systems and deductibles as you, if you are lucky enough to have any insurance coverage. Get a life!

Sorry to the proof readers, verbage and some instead of so. Guess I'm a bit empassioned with your critical comments of our veterans, coming from a family of those that have served as enlisted, officers and federal jobs. Some made the ultimate sacrifice and a few worked at jobs non federal without any benefits and very little medical care for their service connected injuries. So I don't think you are as informed as you may think about how the system works. Good Luck at getting that wonderful federal job, as OBama has already made major cuts and if re elected another four years, we'll be lucky to have a mini military. He already has put a freeze on officers salaries, most of which have a miminum of a Bachelors degree and most a Masters. You think they have it so great, you obviously are speaking from afar.
